Ani-Motion masks

Postby mechanik63 » Sun Oct 09, 2011 9:21 pm

getting my costume together for this year and was wondering if anyone has used or seen those ani-motion masks in action. couldnt really find any reviews that were helpfull. my biggest question is how well the mask moves with your movement. any help would be great

I bought the gorilla for my brother and the brown werewolf for myself.

Personally, I love them! They come with foam pieces you can use to make the fit snug. You'll want to put some black foam or fabric inside the mouth to give it the best effect.

I've tried mine with Vaseline on the teeth/mouth area for that wet-slobbery look.

Takes a little prep to make sure it fits right, but once it does, it's pretty darn cool!

Here it is in action! http://youtu.be/-zGtx8NwQno

Their YouTube channel has great little how-to videos for making the mask fit and last.

Hope that helps!

Thanks batgirl, the one I found in the store was the clown one and it was outa the package and in bad shape. in the videos they look real good. Are they pretty comfortable once you get it fitted good? Leaning towards the night fiend one i've seen.

Once you get the fit right, it's pretty comfortable for a moving mask. I couldn't wear it for hours on end, but that's just me. I'd need/want a few breaks here and there.

I don't think you can go wrong with this company's selection of ani-motion masks. And I usually don't care for wings with costumes, but check out their "beast wings" video. You get those, one of their night stalker or night fiend masks, a big had, and a trench coat and you've got your own DYI Jeepers Creepers.

The one I tried at the Halloween store was pretty cool!! When I put it on and started moving my mouth the mask moved along with my mouth! I hope to see pics of your costume!!!

i went with the night fiend, got a trench coat with it and the latex hands to match, the wings are a great idea batgirl but i think i may pass this year on that. im also not a big fan of wings , last pair i wore i ended up taking half of a guys spider webs he had strung out trick-or-treating with the kids, you think toilet paper stuck to your shoe is bad i didnt notice until the next block and no one mentioned it to me. when i get it all together i'll definitley post some pics

That awesome you got the werewolf one! I was thinking about it myself (don't know why) :lol:
But I really like the demon one too. It would go great with my clock.
