In September, Slipknot percussionist Shawn 'Clown' Crahan announced that he would be releasing a limited edition mask every year for his birthday on September 24. These aren't some lame, flimsy masks either. Each of the limited edition 50 masks is made from movie prop quality materials, handcrafted and painted by Crahan himself to make each mask unique.

You can purchase 'Clown Mask 001' through Crahan's own website Apocalyptic Nightmare for a cool $500.

This mask is made from a high quality casting latex out of a ultracal 30 mold and takes about a day to dry. After it dries it is then seemed and cleaned for painting. Each mask is hand painted so there will be slight differences between masks and it takes anywhere from 3-6 hours to complete.  Every Mask is one of a kind! After painting,  the mask is then sealed and ready for hair. The hair is a crepe hair which is used for traditional mask making, it is mixed and then hand laid to complete the look. It takes about 2-3 days to complete one of these and each one is made with care which gives you the fans/customers a great unique piece that can be worn or displayed for years to come.  **LIMITED EDITION**  ONLY 50 Hand Crafted Masks Will Be Made Available!
