[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.
Ask Me Anything about my work or the industry!

Didn't we see you on Face/Off? And if you're in the monster mask industry.. When did you work with Distortions Unlimited last?
Hi jaysapathy! I have a bunch of friends that have been on Face-Off, but I haven't been on it personally. I haven't worked in the halloween/haunt industry, I tend to work more on bespoke masks of my own design, and occasionally work for hollywood special effect shops.
