Evil Twin FX Hands On Sock Mask Making Workshop

Join Brian & Nick Wolfe of Evil Twin FX for this full day hands on, make-n-take workshop. Cameras and notepads are a must as students will learn to make custom character masks from foam latex appliances.

Creatures, zombies and demons oh my! The best part is taking your class project home with you. Plus, the skills you learn can be used to make all the sock masks you want when you get home. This workshop is suitable for all skill levels from beginner to advance. So come as you are and let your creativity and skills develop through the instruction from two of the finest special FX teachers in the industry.

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!
