THE SHOP — I won't beat around the bush, this video will likely give you nightmares even though there's nothing inherently scary about it.
You may recall a recent trend in photo-realistic drawings and paintings. They're so lifelike that it's difficult to believe they aren't photographs. Well, what do you think happens when the same thing is true of a mask? Creepsville is what happens.
Welcome to the world of hyper-realistic silicone masks. These aren't your mommas plastic halloween masks that are creepy because they don't look enough like a real face; these are state-of-the-art masks that are creepy because of the realistic effect achieved with great skill and craftsmanship.
Landon Meier is the owner and operator of his aptly named company, Hyperflesh. He's the one you'll see in the video who is trying on a mask that looks like a very real girl with pigtails. It shouldn't be creepy, it just looks like a girl. But boy howdy, it's a bizarre watching experience.
If you look at this workbench in the back, you'll see that he also makes masks of celebrities including our current POTUS, Charlie Sheen, Mike Tyson, Vladimir Putin, and more. In fact, you may have even seen a video ofBryan Cranston donning the mask of his now famous character Walter White (aka Heisenberg) from "Breaking Bad."
