Cornelius – update

Well, after much discussion – Dan and I have decided to stay with
foam latex and the last prosthetic sculpt we generated. Why try
re-inventing the wheel, right? The tried and true method for those
makeups in the original “Apes” films we feel, shouldn’t be tampered
with – as cool as silicone gel is. We still have the molds and we can
still generate some great foam appliances. And, as a matter if fact, we
have a couple of appliances left over from those days.

Here’s one of them:

Here’s a photo of the last makeup we created from that sculpt I did back
in the 90s and this is what you’ll see at the WonderCon this year:
