Prior to graduating I started receiving catalogs in the mail from companies such as Don Post Studios, Distortions Unlimited, House of Horror Studios and Be Something Studios (now known as Zagone Studios).

MONSTROUS MASK REVIEWS: Classic Sock Skull by Zagone Studios

Zagone Studios has oftentimes been the first to introduce a particular type of mask. In this case it is the moving mouth masks, also known as sock masks. The concept is that the latex mask is attached to a black sock that fits over your head.

In addition, this style of mask allows for great visibility and breathability.
