One of our clients found two complete sets of production made foam latex Mrs. Doubtfire makeup appliances. This amazing age make up was used to transform Robin Williams into one of his most beloved characters. The movie make up was designed by Greg Cannom and was actually 8 separate pieces, not 1 mask as the movie made it seem. It took make up artist Ve Neill more than 4 hours to apply everyday. The multiple pieces were time consuming to apply but they allowed Williams to give more facial expressions they he would ever have been able to give in a heavy latex mask.
We were able to source a Robin Williams lifecast from FX artist and life cast collector William Forsche. This gave us a perfect canvas to display the foam latex movie props. The process of mounting the pieces is almost identical to the application process Neill went through all those years ago. Each of the pieces were carefully applied and then the edges were blended for a seamless look. We then painted the exposed areas of the lifecast (nostrils, lips and a bit of the eyelids) for a more seamless looking display. A custom acrylic display case gave this museum worthy bust the ultimate display it deserves!

She made it home safely! I want to thank you for another top notch experience, and dazzling work of art! I am beyond thrilled with this piece, it is simply stunning. She was packed so well in that crate, it is times like these, I wish I had a power drill. I can barely feel my red blistered hands! Thanks so much again! I hope to do business again soon!
