Subject: [Puptcrit] Latex creatures INVASION!


http://thehorrordome.com/

Check out this 'Haunting" website. I've never seen such a wide selection of impressive latex creatures, and never so many in one place that had such a high percentage of exposed latex (full body creatures sometimes!).

Some of their puppets are especially interesting and impressively detailed, such as the Baby illusion, the Man-Eating Plant (small Audrey II) or the dragon!.


I have so many creatures in mind, ready to be born! This Halloween, I'll work on my costume and puppet well in advance, and it will be bound to freak people out! 


Makes me want to get a better airbrush and start painting the latex with that! Brush work is great and flattering (with stage lights) for gritty and "raw" results, especially for stage productions, but these days I have more contracts for camera work, and gritty is almost too much for the high def equipement.

When I will have the choice, I'll switch to silicones from Smooth-On. MUCH easier to use, and so much more durable than latex.
Surprisingly nowadays, silicones are not as expensive as I first thought, and they are easier to find locally than before.
