Advanced All-day Workshop 1 (Fee Required)
Tuesday 9:00am-4pm
Room: 320 B
Evil Twin FX Hands-On Custom Mask Making Workshop
by Nick Wolfe, Evil Twin FX www.eviltwinfx.com

Description – The sock mask is a staple of the haunted attraction industry because of their breath-ability. They are soft, comfortable, and flexible, which means your actors will keep them on longer. In this Full Day hands-on make-n-take workshop, Nick Wolfe of Evil Twin FX will be instruct attendees how to build the structure of the mask and create the look of a mask using appliance pieces. Attendees will also learn how to apply latex to the mask to blend the pieces together, how to paint / finish the mask, and how to cut the eye holes / mouth to make the mask functional. This mask technique requires very little sculpting. Even if you have never worked with latex or tried to make a mask before, you can make a sock mask. Your only limits are your imagination. Once completed, attendees will walk away with a custom one of a kind mask and the knowledge of how to make many, many more. This workshop is suitable for all skill levels from beginner to advance.

About HAuNTcon

HAuNTcon features movie & TV industry celebrities for presentations and personal appearances.  In the past we’ve hosted makeup professionals such as Brian & Nick Wolfe, Cleve Hall, and Tom Devlin.  Actors from iconic horror movies such as Gunnar Hansen (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) have graced our celebrity ensemble.

If can’t get enough scares in October, try our Pre-Show overnight bus trip that includes lights on and lights off tours of local haunted events. This tour is followed by the full action tours on Friday and Sunday evenings.

The Trade Show floor, Friday through Sunday, is filled with the latest in fright services and equipment, for the professional Haunted House owner and the Halloween enthusiast alike. From horror makeup and highly detailed masks to static props and large animatronic creatures, everything a Haunter needs will be for sale, often at wholesale prices.  Stay four out Haunted Garage sale, where local haunted houses and manufacturers sell and trade anything everything haunted at this flea market/swap meet.  The sale is a great place to find killer deals.

The conference wraps up with advanced education on the Monday, following the trade show, with day-long hands-on workshops, covering everything from attraction design to creating realistic scenes of terror at your event!
