Halloween comes early – first look at the new Monster Scenes Dr. Deadly mask!

Posted in General info on January 23, 2011 by Monster Scenes®

It’s the treat you’ve been waiting for – the first ever officially-licensed Dr. Deadly™ deluxe Halloween mask!

First announced in 2010, this is a breakthrough for your favorite Monster Scenes cretin. Inspired by the artwork of Jim Craig, here’s a stunning new rendering of Dr. Deadly – full scale, face to face.


Sculpted by the remarkably talented Justin Mabry, Art Director at Trick or Treat Studios and chief ghoul at NightOwlProductions, this Dr. Deadly mask brings you closer than you’ve ever been (or might have ever wanted to be) to the medical miscreant of the Monster Scenes realm.

The mask has been unveiled at this year’s Halloween & Party Expo, the annual industry gathering that’s currently underway in Houston, TX at the time of this blog entry.

We at Monster Scenes extend our special thanks to sculptor Justin Mabry and Trick or Treat Studios president, Chris Zephro, for making this mask a reality.  

Plus, you can pre-order your Dr. Deadly mask now. Just click on over to TrickorTreatStudios.com to reserve yours today.

A clever creation from Andy Yanchus, original Aurora Project Manager, here’s his rendition of Vampi complete with Santa hat and fluffy trim. She’s part of Andy’s vast collection and, yes indeed, she’s real. And now she’s back to spread some cheer once again.

From Andy Yanchus and MonsterScenes.net, we wish you all a Merry Christmas and happy holiday season.

Oh, and if you feel someone nipping at your neck, it might not be Jack Frost — look out!

Do you see what I see? Monster Scenes in 3-D!!

Posted in General info on December 22, 2010 by Monster Scenes®

Take a look at the true depths of Dr. Deadly’s dungeon thanks to these inventive photos from Stephen Bell. These images are already compelling in their eerie atmosphere but Stephen goes the extra yard (literally) from having converted them into actual analglyph 3-D renderings. Get yourself a pair of red-and-blue 3-D glasses (surely you have a pair lying about, don’t you?), and view these great dimensional photos. Remember, the red lens goes over your left eye. Click each photo to see a larger version.
