  Lee Romaire continually sets the bar to a new mark with each mask he creates.  Masks aren't the only thing he excels at.  Lee is a world class FX artist in Hollywood and has some serious hardware he recently won for his work on the HBO series '6 Feet Under'.  To talk to Lee, you would never imagine just what he has achieved because he's also very humble.  He is his own harshest critic and claims he has alot to learn.  Read all about Lee.
   
   
 

   
 

   
  How could we look at ourselves in the mirror if we didn't interview the first lady of latex, the madam of monsters, the gal of ghouls?  It's no secret the mask world is dominated by those of us belonging to the less fairer sex, so it's great to know there are women who would rather discuss which version of Frankie is her favorite rather than how inspired she was by last nights episode of 'Trading Spaces' (had to throw that in for my wife).  Laura is of course married to that crazy nut David and together they make a perfect monster crazed team.  Laura specializes in hairing masks and is the go to guy (er ah gal) when it comes to the big hairing projects.  Read about Laura and her thoughts on the crazy world of monsters.
