If you are looking for the perfect Halloween costume, then you are definitely going to want to check out REAL-f's 3 Dimension Photo Forms. REAL-f's 3DPFs are photorealistic masks that are designed to look exactly like your face down to the most minute details.

REAL-f creates their 3DPFs by first taking shots of your face from multiple angles. The photos are then put on a vinyl chloride resin that is stretched over a face mold. The result is a mask that looks incredibly like the face that it was modeled after. REAL-f offers two types of masks to choose from, mask or mannequin head cast, with the 3D face masks going for $$3,920 and the head replicas for $1,960. No one ever said dressing as Nicholas Cage's character from 'Face/Off' for Halloween would be cheap. Stats for Real-Life Face Offs Trending: Older & Warm
