Papa Emeritus II

it's been a long, long time in the making but screwbiter is mondo proud to bring the Official Papa Emeritus II mask! Papa II is the current incarnation of frontman for Swedish band Ghost (or as they are known trademark wise in the states "Ghost B.C."). sculpted by myself pulling inspiration from both the actual mask used in live performance and album artwork, this bad boy is limited to 250 pieces world wide and available NOW in the mask shop! each piece is hand numbered, and 13 specially selected numbers (of occult significance) will be known as "Ghostly Papas" and they feature a glow in the dark skull finish. Demand is expected to be high, and I anticipate many sleepless nights in the shop!

goin to The Blumeys

I just got word today the the play I did prosthesis for back in February, "Beauty & The Beast" has been nominated for several awards (including best makeup design) in the 2013 NC Blumenthal Arts awards "The Blumeys". The actor I did the key makeup on has been nominated in the best actor category and will be performing a couple of numbers in full Beast makeup, so I've once again been contracted by the school to handle the gig and attend the ceremonies with the cast & crew on May 19th. nice way to cap off the day I think!

project news

The secret project I've been mentioning for a while is almost complete! I just sent images of the final sculpt for approval and it looks like we're good to go, so I'll post a little teaser here: I will be doing final texturing and tweaking this week then she goes to mold. work will begin on her eyes and base/nameplate this week as well, then she'll be unleashed on an unsuspecting human world! Also working on a second secret project that I've been at for a while it seems, but can't report much on that other than to say the sculpt it almost complete and I will be submitting it as well. Work continues on the Anton LaVey bust as well, and hope to have something on that soon as well. Last, it's not official as of yet but plans are in the works to be a part of MaskFest this year in Indiana. More news on that as it surfaces. That's all for now!

Making the beast and other news

I've been working all week on a production of Disney's version of Beauty and The Beast in Charlotte for Covenant Day School. I've been hired to do the prosthetics for the Beast character, and it's been pretty fun. I've been involved in plays before and enjoyed them, it's been along time though. I fortunately got used to the frenetic backstage pace that I'd long forgotten. It runs the rest of the week and two shows Saturday. I'll post pics when I can get a hold of some. I've been working as well on the secret mask project and hope to have it finished and submitted for likeness approval soon. I have the base ready and will be sculpting it's name plate soon too, expect it to be released in the next month or so. April 11 will also see the return of the Lords of The Left Hand Path series as well, details on that forthcoming. until next time!
