The Devil's Workshop is a small independent mask making studio operating one mile outside of Chicago in the city of Berwyn, Illinois. All of our masks are hand crafted from the sculpture to the finishing drop of paint. These indie monster masks are collector quality and are far superior to mass-produced, store-bought masks. Most of our masks are produced in extremely limited editions and are available for a short time only.
Because of the limited nature of our masks, please contact us to see if a mask is in stock. If we have a mask in stock, it is available for immediate purchase, and often ships the next day. Paypal is the preferred method of payment for orders.
Unlike previous years, our masks will only be available in small, monthly runs. Each month, the Devil's Workshop will release a limited number of masks, and when they're gone, they're gone.
Each new monthly release will alternate between a public release, and a private Fang Club release, for a total of 6 public releases each year, and 6 Fang Club releases. The best way to keep up to date on these releases is to check the Devil's Workshop Instagram page which is updated several times a week. Otherwise, check the Devil's Workshop News for updates.
Over the course of the last several years, Devil's Workshop orders have shipped with Fang Club cards. If you have one, you are officially a member of the club. Visit the Devil's Workshop Fang Club web page and use the 4-digit membership number on the back of your card to log in and enjoy the benefits. Not a member? Fear not, Fang Club cards ship with each order from the Devil's Workshop.
The Devil's Workshop is run and operated by Peter Infelise. Pete is a 1980's monster kid. Raised on Universal, Hammer, and B-monster movies on Saturday afternoons watching the Son of Svengoolie on Chicago UHF channels. The old Universal classics are still my faves.
I picked up my first issue of Creepy in 1981 at seven years old, and my first Famous Monsters magazine in 1982. Life has never been the same. Like monster kids from previous generations, I was captivated by the ads, especially the ones for the monster masks!
In addition to being a mask maker, I am an avid monster mask collector, and enthusiast, with a deep appreciation for the history of the hobby and industry.
Thanks for taking the time to visit the Devil's Workshop website. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any comments or questions.
This guide was created to provide a detailed look at the process that the Devils Workshop employs to create a monster mask from beginning to end. While this is the process that I use, I make no claim that these are the best practices, or the most efficient or best way to make a mask. They are simply the steps that work for me.
