Teleporter Accident Fuses Adafruit Eyes and Immortal Masks Character
Immortal Masks is a top-tier producer of silicone masks. These fill a middle ground between basic halloween store fare and hiring a makeup crew and spending hours in a chair — balancing cost, realism, time and durability. They’re popular with haunted houses, theme parks and among dedicated cosplayers and collectors.
Always pushing boundaries, Immortal’s latest character “Screwball” has large, wide-set eyes that move and blink thanks to a pair of Adafruit HalloWing M4 boards hidden within! Their typical fare is demons, monsters and evil clowns, so the reaction to these off-kilter cartoon critters has been hilarious…even die-hard horror people are unsettled.
It’s never too soon to be thinking about Halloween…these are bespoke items with a weeks-long production pipeline.
Not a paid promotion. Some of us were already Immortal customers/fans, and when they saw our Toon Hat project an unholy alliance was forged. We hope this is just the start!
