IamA self-employed "Monster Maker" who specialises in wearable masks AMA!
[EDIT 2] Answered all the questions from today's session (and even some more)! Thanks everyone! I'll probably check again tomorrow, but just in case things get crazy, I want to thank you all for your excellent questions, and can't wait to see the masks and monsters you make in the future. :D
[EDIT] Wow, thanks for the questions today, a lot tougher than I thought, but I really appreciate it! I'm calling it a day for now. I'll try to answer the remaining questions, and may be back tomorrow, watch this space!
Come join me on Instagram (MissMonsterMel) and Facebook (MissMonsterArt) for updates on my work.
My name is Melita Curphy, also known as Miss Monster. I've been making all manner of monster masks, traditional art and toys for about 14 years. I have worked with the likes of Guillermo Del Toro, Sideshow collectibles and on such productions as A Scanner Darkly.
I'm currently at DesignerCon in Pasadena, answering the questions from anyone that comes by, so I thought I would open it up to Reddit as well! I'll start at or shortly after 3pm PDT.
