Leprechaun Mask?

Postby sirbrad » Wed Mar 21, 2012 2:44 am

Anyone know if MMFX still makes them or who they sold the mold to? Tried to get one on eBay but got outbid. Or does anyone else make one? I also remember bust by Dr. Nichols I think the name was. I know about all the scamming by MMFX so I was hoping someone else got the mold and does them. OR does anyone plan on doing one? I might have to start sculpting sooner than I had planned lol.

MMFX is no longer in business at all, I don\'t think he ever sold the mold either. I remember someone made one not to long ago, not quite sure who it was though.

CFX made a silicone one pretty cool and pretty accurate. That\'s the only place i know of that made one.

Yeah I saw that, that is $1300 but looks cool. It is a modified CFX mask. I might try one or commission someone to do one in latex and maybe produce some with the mold. Have not had a lot of sculpting practice for many years but would love to try one sometime. Always wanted to sculpt masks but costumes keep me busy as it is. I also thought the Don Post one was great for a mass produced mask, and huge so it makes you look like a Leprechaun althought not entirely accurate it looks awesome. Would definitely want a high end more accurate one sometime. Costume it comes with is not too great but I was gonna replace it with more accurate ones sometime. I want to do a life-sized sometime, will have to get a 3.6" boy mannequin soon lol. Will see how it alll goes.

I would\'ve thought Earl would have the MMFX mold as he buys most of his masks are sculpted by Bob . I had thought about sculpting one myself soon but then came up with some better ideas so it\'ll have to wait a little bit for me to pick up interest again .

Yeah I thought maybe he got it too, will have to find out. But I have another artist that should be able to do a good job. I want to try and sculpt a life-sized face sometime for fun on a 3\'6" boy mannequin. Have not had time to do any sculpting in years though as costumes alone took over. But I still want to get into it more soon. I could also buy rights to the mold and produce it even if I wanted to. I want one sculpted like the movie one exactly, and it will actually be cheaper than the modified CFX Pickles since it is not silicone. Even the stunt mask looks great and I or the sculptor could use that for reference. I would use it like I did my Creeper mask and make a prosthetic mouth or jaw at least out of it for good movement and use some perfect veneers I found. I found some decent clothes already, and a gold ascot and plaid vest. Might have to make life-sized ones though as I doubt I would find them that size and color. Will have to save up awhile to get it all started, should be a fun project!
Not sure how it will take but I definitely want to do a costume and maybe a larger scaled life-sized at about 5 foot or so, as a lot of "little people" appear to have bigger heads, or more proportioned. Some of the other dwarves have tiny heads. But you would not be able to tell the difference in pics unless you had something else to scale it by. But either way I will be doing that costume at least! Wanted to for many years but already had about 30 characters on my plate lol. golly gee willikers St. Parick\'s Day marathon bumped this project to the top of the heap lol.

I always wondered if Warwick did the impression out of costume and as "luck" would have it the first video I clicked he did at the end. Awesome! lol.

Bob Causey makes the best one ever! Shoot him an email and see if he still has the mold!

Yeah I know about those, the life-sized was cool although the head was kinda too small, Warick\'s head is actually huge and full sized but it still looked cool I saw the Dr. Nichols bust also. I am getting one done from scratch and customized to my size so I can wear it as I Want to make costume and life-sized. The size should be in proportion since as I said Warick\'s head is normal size, actually bigger. He is not the type of Dwarf with even proportions all over, only the limbs are smaller usually. But stay tuned this should be fun! :)
