The newest Death Studios werewolf mask, simply titled "Werewolf" was by far the largest and fiercest werewolf ever offered by DS. If I remember correctly, this beast was sculpted by John Smith...

In response to the late 90's alien craze John Smith sculpted this large "Alien Grey". This alien is much larger than it looks. I saw the sculpture at Death Studios before the mold was made, and it was impressive in scale and detail...

  1. At Morris costumes we received more than a few Prototypes from David Lady and Dave Ayres... I cannot now recall which was with Death Studios... any way they were having difficulties with getting their paints to stick to the rubber (it reminded me of a peeling sunburn) I am sure that they have this problem fixed by now... some of their sculpts were a bit "crude" back then....
