Alien masks have always been a favorite of mine. I’m not talking about those from the ALIEN movie series. I am talking about aliens associated with flying saucers. The greys. There have been many interpretations over the years. Some of them are the typical “greys” and others have taken it a bit further. ALIEN PROBE, by Ghoulish Productions, in one of these masks that have gone beyond what is expected.
First off, I love the sculpt of ALIEN PROBE. This character has a lot of personality. There is great wisdom in the face, as though he/she has visited all over the universe. As is typical with Ghoulish Productions masks, this one is painted very well.
The colors used for this piece is perfect. The highlights and shadows are subtle. Even though, in the right lighting this mask will look terrifying. Then there is the eyes. Another thing Ghoulish Productions is great at is eye painting, something often missed in latex masks.
I love what was chosen for the eyes. The swirling blues are so representative of the universe. Between the skin creases and the eyes you know that this is an intelligent being. I get that latex masks are supposed to be a character. What Ghoulish Productions has done for me with ALIEN PROBE is create a living being.
Vision and breathing is also very easy with this mask. The eye holes give you pretty good sight and the breathing holes in both the nose and mouth help a lot.
This mask is getting more difficult to find but I do have a few available if interested. My Facebook Marketplace Store has it available for a limited time. It is no longer available on the Ghoulish Productions website. Make sure to check out my other entries in my MONSTROUS MASK REVIEWS series.
