That time, 3 years ago, when I was in Greeley, Colorado, and got to go on a tour of the Distortions Unlimited company, as well as meet and chat with the owner and lead paint artist, Ed Edmunds. Their company makes some of the best Halloween and Haunted House props, masks, and animatronics. They also had a tv show on the Travel Channel, called "Making Monsters", which both my kiddo and I loved. Ed was so nice and gracious with his time. He just loved my daughter (yup, she went on that adventure, too) and so he gave her a couple of severed ear props to keep. She was beyond excited and I couldn't thank hom enough! 😆

I can't take credit for the pic, but I couldn't resist using it to drop another @maskfest plug. We're running out of maskfest mondays. The clock is ticking... do you have your tickets yet
P.S. Big thank you to whoever is responsible for the "smiling mikey" pic.👍
Let’s play PICK YOUR HALLOWEEN MASK! 🎃 Which one of these grisly monsters would you wear to scare
I’m a bit partial to the Evil Grin Pumpkin.... Only $34.50, too!
@maskfest wouldn’t be the same without the notorious powerhouse pair, David and Laura Lady! Based out of Ohio, this couple (married since ’85) simply do it all.

David Lady, whose childhood was strongly influenced by Don Post mask ads and monster movies on TV, has been a significant part of the Halloween and horror industry since the early 1980s. He’s a mask maker, writer, illustrator, event coordinator, performer, host, and the list goes on! From the early days of The Halloween Society and contributing to The Halloween Gazette magazine to the work he does today, David Lady has cemented himself as a Halloween mask expert! He’s written some wonderful books like “Dr. Lady’s Collector’s Guide to Movie & TV Monster Masks” and “Extreme Mask Making: A How-To Guide for Humans.” Plus, he wrote and illustrated his very own monster comic, “Hassle Castle.” David designs, sculpts, and fabricates masks for private collections, museums, film & TV (Santa Claws, Saturday the 14th Strikes Back, Zombiethon, Slave Girls from Beyond Infinity). He is known for The Late DR. LADY Show and DR. LADY’s Horror Gallery, and has one of the largest mask collections around. He’s organized Horror Hotel, Chamber of Horrors Museum, and numerous haunted house attractions. He can be seen in Daniel Roebuck and Chuck Williams’ documentary, Halloween... The Happy Haunting of America!
Laura Lady is especially well-known within the Halloween, haunt and horror industry for her excellent, intricate custom hair work on masks, busts, and prop heads for private collections, museums, and haunted attractions. She has also worked as a costume designer and seamstress for films such as Tremors, Harry and the Hendersons, and Slave Girls from Beyond Infinity. She is a mask sculptor, performer on the Late DR. LADY Show and DR. LADY’s Horror Gallery. #maskfest
