Sneak Peak Of The Scream Team's NEW DESIGN for 2011!

We are biased, yes but Scott is pretty much the fastest sculptor in the biz. Two days ago, he was told that customers on FB and Twitter were clamoring for a scarecrow design.  Done and done--and  it's being duplicated many times over for the molding process already (We have a feeling that this new going to be HUGELY popular!)

We have seen scarecrows done before in foam latex. While they all have their charms, Scott wanted a different take on it. Scott usually designs things that can work well with the average structure of the human face/anatomy. But he also comes from the place of, "More is not always better - or scarier for that matter." Frequently, makeup designers go over the top in terms of design... Forgetting that a real human being has to wear the appliance, move in it and bring it to life. Scott has a unique ability to create pieces that highlight the wearer's humanity.

Enter Scarecrow. This design will be probably the only scarecrow foam latex appliance on the market that can look completely different on every user. Scott did not sculpt in any of those  infamous scarecrow stitches at all. He wants to let the user decide where they want the stitches! (Using twine, thread, or even just makeup Scott will show you how it's done. ) This piece even has the ability to have a burlap hood attached.

One customer on Facebook, suggested that RAPTOR could be used for a woman and SCARECROW for a man.. NICE. Couple photoshoot in the works!

Henry: The Ballad Of The Scream Team Shop Dog

Henry's motto: Naps Solve All Problems
We, at The Scream Team love animals. In fact, we sometimes make a decision on a stranger's character solely based on what Henry, (The Scream Team Basset Hound) thinks of them. (Luckily, Henry's opinions of others usually rests completely on the person's willingness to rub his belly. Go figure. )

Henry likes to be in the mix of things around the shop. His nickname is "speed bump", because of unique proclivity to lay exactly in your walking path. It's his non verbal way of telling us to, "Slow down! take it easy."

"But why does it smell so bad?"
At one point, a cup blood red colored latex got tipped over and a bit of it landed on sweet ole Henry's posterior. And it was not noticed until late in the day when we worried he might have been hurt. "Is that BLOOD?? Is Henry BLEEDING??" Nope. Liquid Latex...DRIED. into. the. dog fur. We combed, brushed and even super-solved the area. And decided that since it didn't hurt Henry, we should leave his poor hindquarters alone. In fact, it became his Halloween makeup effects badge of honor!

We have not trained King Henry to run foam yet, due to his annoying lack of opposable thumbs. Yet his zen-like ability to nap in the make-up chaos keeps us all centered during the busy Halloween rush.

"See, belly rubs are magic!"
The creation of foam latex appliances can be difficult, tedious and requires much dedication to produce the quality of products we have become known for. It's nice to look down and see that Henry approves of all of our hard work.
It's good to be the king.
