Stage Frights Foam Latex Prosthetic Lion Mask
The Stage Frights Foam Latex Prosthetic Lion mask is one of the most popular designs and has been used for many productions of Beauty and the Beast and Wizzard of Oz. It has even been adapted for a grinchy character. Whiskers are included and pre-punched into the piece.
All of these appliances are handmade in the USA out of high-grade foam latex. Foam latex prosthetic masks were developed by film and TV makeup artists for realistic character effects. These masks "glue" to your face and move with your every expression to give the most convincing character transformation for your costume. The unpainted prosthetics are customizable. Add color and hair to create a makeup effect to suit your character needs.
