Creepy Masks Serve as the Greatest Inducer of Nightmares Ever

Posted on March 14, 2010

The Japanese have brought us a number of terrifying horror movies, the sole purpose of which seems to be to make us very, very afraid of long-haired, pale little girls. Although creepy in their own right, these simply don’t compare to ZJC-Masks and the utterly creepy masks this nameless individual creates.

Save for maybe serving as a Halloween mask, the practical purpose of one of these masks is lost on me. As the video below highlights, the masks have almost exaggerated expressions that never change, making them suitable for scaring the crap out of your younger brothers and sisters.

The highlight of the video, however, comes later on, where we get a close-up look of the mask in action. The model wearing the masks eats a banana, clearly struggling to keep it within her mouth. Admittedly not creepy so much as it is kind of gross, she then proceeds to stretch the bottom of the mask out, presumably to show us the material from which it’s made.

Or to TERRIFY THE CRAP OUT OF YOU. Either one.

Despite how terrifying some of these masks look, you have to admire the creator. She (presumably a she) makes each one by hand, and as a result does custom orders (though not at this time). Through the broken English of the website, you’re given several examples of the types of masks she can make, as well as a thorough description on how to use them properly.

Even though their purpose is lost on me, I wish ZJC nothing but the best. In fact, I kind of want to order one for Halloween now.

The "her" you are referring to is probably a "him", actually. This is a strange form of fetishism called "Female Masking"... From WikiPedia: This is is a sub-form of cross-dressing that involves, in addition to the wearing of women's clothing, a mask (usually made from latex) that gives a pseudo-real representation of a female face. Pictures of masked participants in this activity may have a reasonably life-like appearance although the immobile nature of the mask presumably means it would be unlikely to work in real-life situations. However, given the never-ending cycle of research and development in special makeup effects, it seems likely that a more lifelike mask will become available, if not commonly affordable. For example, latex is the most commonly used material for these kinds of masks, due mostly to how easily it may be obtained and its relatively low cost. It also mimicks the slightly translucent nature of human skin when properly cured, and it is simple to alter the color tone of the end product to match desired flesh tones. However, it is not as flexible as human skin.

Oh holy crap, that part at the start looks like test footage for a horror movie to see which scene is the freakiest. ("I think having the crazy smiling woman in a wedding dress walking down a hall is the freakiest!" "No way, you're out of your mind... the pregnant crazy woman is the scariest!") When she took the first mask off I thought the second one was actually her face at first due to crappy YouTube video quality. I was thinking, "No wonder she wears masks if she looks like that!.... oh wait, that's a mask too."
