This is the best options. It's what I use and they look 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 [/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!
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 . 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.
