Realistic Ren and Stimpy Masks from Immortal are the Stuff of Nightmares! (VIDEO)
In the world of cosplay and fandom-based costuming endeavors, major praise should be given to those who build fantastic replicas of their favorite characters (even if they seem a little too realistic occasionally). Sometimes, though, the cherry on top of a great cosplay is the perfect mask, and the more realistic the piece, the better. However, as terrifyingly incredible as some masks are, Immortal Masks just might have pushed the envelope with nightmarish recreations in their latest works of art. How so? By creating two hyper-realistic masks of childhood favorites, Ren and Stimpy, that definitely will fuel our nightmares for days to come!
Unveiled at this year’s Monsterpalooza, and featured on Adam Savage’s Tested YouTube channel, these freakishly realistic masks have definitely upped the creep factor, especially with cartoon critters we used to love to laugh at over the years. Check out the video below and witness the horrifying detail these creators put into their work:
These masks were created by Adam Freeman of Immortal Masks in just a week, so that they could be unveiled at Monsterpalooza. According to Freeman, the masks were created entirely out of silicon, save for the yak’s hair used to adorn the tops of the character’s heads. Freeman also stated that he was required to use a water-based clay, instead of the longer drying clay he normally uses to shape the masks due to the time constraints given, though it seems that minor change hasn’t been much of a detriment to the results. Even with a rush job like this, these masks are truly amazing, even if a real-life representation of Ren and Stimpy is enough to creep out anyone.
As of right now, the Ren and Stimpy masks are not for sale as they are not really fit for wearing at the moment, but Freeman has stated he hopes to make adjustments to the mask for future use. For more information on Immortal Masks and all of their creations, check out their website here.
