Making of the alien you see as the current HOV header...








A lot of people have emailed asking if we sell the alien mask that is the current Slick It Up group photo and the header on House of Vader. Unfortunately we do not. It cost A LOT to have custom made on me. I designed it along with the special fx guys in LA. They did an incredible job. These are some shots of the process and of making it and designing it..

Thanks, I've always wanted to get a peek at some of the design process for your stuff. Hope to see more in the future.

Wonderful!

So you DO know about latex and silicone mask sculpture.

Did you know they can separate it into pieces that move with your face, allowing speech, expressions and emotions?

Next time get one of your superfans to pay for a mask if you want. I could see them sponsoring the creation of an ad through kickstarter or just your blog. You should also have an Amazon or other Wish List posted on your blog.

Your fans will buy you gifts just for being hot and blogging.

I figured that FANTASTIC PLANET may have also inspired the design:

Just curious: how claustrophobic and freak-outery was the life cast?
