Recommendations for display heads?

Postby EricIsBacchus » Thu May 03, 2012 8:07 am

Hey everybody. Been a long time.

I'm redoing my basement, and I need a couple of mask display heads. Hopefully decent ones that won't break the bank.

I've got my Warlock displayed on a hat stand, but I need two full heads (I think) for a Leatherface and a Guy Fawkes mask.

Anyone have some suggestions?

Thanks,
Eric

Ebay has some great options , not that pricey too

search "Male Mannequin Head"

you can just get the head or a bust with the half shoulders

then theres always paper towel holders , they look great if you find the right one, i found some great looking bronze polished ones at Marshalls / Homegoods

You can get the paper towel holder and buy a styrofoam head from a beauty salon for about $5. Theres a hole on the bottom of the head you can shove the paper towel holder into.. works great

My favorite one it this one I keep my CM on it,s clean looking and it has thick rubber coating up it and the end is shaped perfectly and rounds slowly not a ball . Here it is and I think my girl friend got it at that seconds store like TJ MAXX but the other one I forget the name of Image[/img]

i use the same kind the hero sat on that had the black marker spots. you can get them at hobby lobby for 4.95.. then i buy a wooden dowel from there also and cut into a few short ones and screw them to a wooden base from hobby lobby that costs about 2.95. so for 3 heads, a wooden dowel for 3 stands and 3 bases it puts you around 25 bucks. i use a black beanie on each one aswell not just because i heard styrofoam has a chemical reaction with latex but also it blackens the eyes. 3 black beanies from the dollar store for 3 dollars.. total invested for 3 stands under 30 dollars..

I bought Paper Towel Holders and Foam Heads in Bulk. I spent $70 but have enough supplies to make about 60 stands. Add in a few cans of Krylon and some sandpaper and you'll never have to buy anything else!

For mask stands, I've bought a few of these bargain-priced rubber wood paper towel holders (from Ebay AU).

I sand them down, paint them black and then stuff shopping bags into the mask head as required to fill things out. Easy.

For display heads, I've wanted to buy CFX busts - but with shipping to Australia it would come to $100 per bust. So I've gone with the usual mannequin heads.

That looks like a mask stand/lady pleasurer ;) . jk

I normally get made fund of for using 2-liter bottles for my mask stands but they work great for me and it gives me an excuse to drink as much soda as I "need" for the collection :mrgreen: . I used to fill them with water 2/3 full and rubber cement the lid on, but recently I started filling them 2/3 with heavy sand. It is just as strong for weight support without the added risk of 2 liters of water and rare masks. I will use black fabric to wrap the base if the mask's neck doesn't reach down far enough.

If I were you, I'd get some cheap mask stands, and stuff them with some polyester fiberfill. It works like a charm :rock:
