Never forget a face: get your own custom-made wearable Life Mask! With traditional lifemasks or lifecasts, the eyes are closed and there is no color. With our Custom LifeMasks, the eyes are wide open and the face is in full color.
The personalized facemask can be worn, put on display, mounted on a mannequin head or fitted onto a doll head. The hollow inside of the mask also displays an inverted face and will follow you round the room in an optical illusion called reverspective visual phenomenon.
Our masks are good enough that researchers at Idiap Laboratory at EPFL University have shown that they can be used to spoof facial recognition biometric security systems even with Kinect-type depth data.
We use advanced 3D imaging and cutting-edge manufacturing processes to create them out of a resin composite in full 24-bit color. A 3D preview will be sent for your approval before manufacturing starts.
The lifesize masks can be worn on the face and offer the maximum likeness, but won't offer any visibility. For this, you would need to order the Wearable Facemask which has holes at the eyes, nostrils and sides for strings. Or you can optional drill these in yourself with any standard home drill.
The More Forehead version of the mask is available and it covers more of sides of the face and most of the forehead.

Various sizes are available if, for example, you have an unusually small head, you'd like to affix the mask to dolls or large statues or want a bigger mask for display purposes, then we can offer sizes in the following ranging from the tiny 1" length mask to a huge 12" one:
Sizes measure the minimum bounding box of the mask (i.e. the measurements of the smallest box one would need to fit the mask in) and may vary slightly depending on applied face.
Prices for each size is displayed in the drop-down select box in the order form. Sizes measure the bounding box of the model with standard forehead and may vary slightly depending on applied face.
