Control is now push action. No more springs inside the mask. Nothing to rust or corrode. I only have 5 of each in stock. Will fit a child or adult.

Optional missing teeth and/or freckles available.

Very nice, Lou!

Lou's masks are durable and well-made. The mask I have was made by Lou in 2000 or 2001 (ten+ years ago!) and it's still in top form. And the thing is, Lou was still experimenting that time with materials and designs, so I'm sure these new creations are even better and more durable!

If I were still doing the vent mask act in my shows now, I'll definitely get one!

Thanks guys! It did take a lot of R&D to develop this new mask. It is made in such a way that it can fit both child and adult. And the mouth opens wide. And best of all, no more springs to corrode inside the mask.

It even fits my 4 year old son.

I'm working on a remote controlled version. I'm still in search for the ideal servo to make it. The control will be concealed at the back of the volunteer or camouflaged inside a giant bowtie or dress shirt.

Thanks Steve! I made this due to the various debates on the Axtell Mic Mouth versus the Puppet Mask issue. Now, this mask barely touches the mouth and is super comfy for the volunteer. It is small, portable and lightweight. What more can you ask for? Optional missing teeth could be funnier.
Great for the travelling ventriloquist. No need to bring your puppet. Fits male and female adults and kids, too.

Less than 10 seconds in my experience. It velcro straps on top of the head and another at the back of the head. The top strap is already fixed so all you have to strap is the back part.

The Upper Lip Mask comes only with the Goofy Mask version. The upper lip is controlled by the first finger while the rest of the fingers control the lower mouth. I have 2 in stock right now for right handed control.

Notice how big the mouth opens compared to all other versions. Great visibility on stage.
It really depends on how you use the masks. It is a matter of choice.

Message: Posted by: Kyle^Ravin (Apr 16, 2012 10:49PM)
Lou, it would be great if you had a big wide smile kinda mask in the style you have above. I've never washed my current mask and I always clean it with Septanol. Its an alcohol based solution to disinfect. However, it does leave behind a very 'hospital' odour. I like the style of the mask above as it leaves for breathing space... however, the big smile. or thick lips kind would be what I need... any advice?>
Message: Posted by: Lou Hilario (Apr 17, 2012 07:00AM)
Hi Kyle, I will try to make one amd post it here. I think it is also funny when 3 teeth are missing.

Hey Lou...It is very funny indeed. however, I get the cable mask's character is named Nancy, and its always a man in behind the mask. That's the issue here... How much are these style masks going for?
Message: Posted by: maps (Apr 19, 2012 09:34AM)
Hi Lou,
The new masks looks great! Maybe you could design one with removable individual teeth so that the vent can remove or replace whatever teeth configuration they want for their show.

You can easily paint the missing tooth of your choice with flat black paint or even glue black felt on it. Same effect. If you want it back, just repaint with white enamel or remove the black felt.

Lou -
Great look! A couple of questions:
1. What is the weight of the mask?
2. How big is the controller - can it be hidden in the vent's hand?
3. Are you making different frequencies so more than one mask can be used at a time?

Thinking about my two person routine here - thanks for any info!
Tom
Message: Posted by: Lou Hilario (May 31, 2013 08:28AM)
Hi Tom,

Here are my answers:
1. Weight is approximately 370 grams including the 4 AAA batteries.
2. The controller is a 3 channel 2.4GHZ Gun Transmitter. This is the smallest and lightest I can find. No, it cannot be hidden in the hand like a key FOB. It also weighs approximately 370 grams.
3. Yes, there will be different frequencies on every mask.

I cannot use a key FOB because the mouth cannot be controlled precisely for big and small nouns. With this type of transmitter, you can control how wide or small the mouth opens for every word.

[url=http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/405/20130531173140.jpg/][img]http://imageshack.us/a/img405/3395/20130531173140.th.jpg[/img][/url][url=http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/194/20130531173357.jpg/][img]http://imageshack.us/a/img194/2475/20130531173357.th.jpg[/img][/url]

Obviously, this is not a magic trick. The audience knows you are controlling the mask (just like the cable version) but it is the way you present it that counts the most.

The transmitter can also be hidden inside a cloth bag where the mask is also placed. In that way, there is a reason to hold it.

I am still thinking of more ideas. Perhaps some of you can share.

On another note for non-ventriloquists: You can use a hidden assistant wearing a wireless mic to talk for the mask with a dialog or impromptu.

Thanks for the info Lou! The video looks great. Congrats on incorporating this advancement.
Message: Posted by: Lou Hilario (Jun 6, 2013 08:02PM)
Finally, found a way to use a key fob for my new remote control puppet mask. I will make an optional "Upper Lip" version. As you can see, I can make 3 actions with the remote as it has 3 buttons ( I removed 2 in the picture). Lower lip, Upper Lip and possibly Wiggling Ears or a light up red nose. A foot switch is another possibility.

This will be rechargeable using a standard 5V USB cellphone charger. Will work 30 to 45 minutes.
Aside from these, it can be operated live mode or it can be pre-programmed.

Next problem: who can afford this? LOL!

Great Job Lou. You have stayed focused and gotten the mask down to a fine science.

Message: Posted by: Lou Hilario (Nov 1, 2013 10:58PM)
Thank you Steve!

I have chosen this configuration because the mouth can be controlled accurately. Slight pressure will open the mouth slightly and full downwards will open the mouth fully so that it can follow the exact words. Each mask works on different frequencies and can be controlled up to 200 feet away.

Sean Bogunia is working on the key fob version right now using his latest technology similar to his DeckTR and ITS units. But. . . . that will cost more.
Message: Posted by: maps (Nov 2, 2013 10:53AM)
Love it Lou. The key fob version sounds great! Any idea what the cost will be?
Message: Posted by: Wanlu (Nov 2, 2013 09:49PM)
The mic is fantastic and it does make sense using it for the one wearing the mask even if the performer has his own headworn mic.

I guess its up to the buyer how he wants to be different.

Maybe ...instead of a mic, the system can be mounted on something similar to a clipboard ala lie detector.

...or that transmitter can be disguised as a funny looking phone or tablet and pretend you are reading questions from it.

In any case... this is fantastic. :)
Message: Posted by: Lou Hilario (Nov 3, 2013 12:09AM)
Thank you for your kind words, Wanlu!

This is not really a magic trick. Obviously, the audience knows who is controlling it. It is really up to the user on his presentation. One good thing is that the volunteer can now freely move with this mask instead of standing still all the time. Dancing won't be a problem at all. In my act, I make the mouth sync with the song while dancing.
Before I place the mask on the volunteer, I explain to my audience that the mask has the latest state of the art technology. It has a voice changer and will sync with the voice inside. In that way, they never suspect the remote.

maps: I don't have a price yet for the key fob version. Sean Bogunia is still creating the program for it. He wants to make sure that the mouth will open and close with precision. But probably around US$300 more for the key fob version.

Here is a sneak peek at my latest mask creation, the "ANGRY MASK", coming soon. This is just the prototype. Just think of a routine where the mask user is complaining about a lot of things.

Great mask, when do you expect it to be available ?
Message: Posted by: Lou Hilario (May 12, 2014 08:37AM)
George, about 5 weeks from now. I need to lengthen the black chin area for the user inside so it should be totally dead black inside when the mouth opens wide. :fyi:

Thanks for your prompt reply.

The Angry Masks are now ready and available. Bigger wider mouth for greater visibility on a large stage. Also a more comfortable fit and lighweight.

I don't know whether I should call this the "Angry" Mask (from the Angry Birds theme) or the "Bully" Mask. It does look angry but it could also be made to look sad and made to cry depending on the sound you want to express.

Wow, more than 15,000 hits. Thank you so much for the readers and posters of the Magic Café! Right now, I am developing a remote control version using two masks with one transmitter. Will post it this month.

Just completed a new mask which I call the "SMART ALEC" mask. This mask works with a cable control. Also notice the new kind of teeth that is now installed in all my masks. Wider mouth opening for greater visibility.

I am thinking of making a cable mask version of this Long Face Mask. Would anyone be interested? What do you think? And yes, this is me and my 7 year old son in the pictures, lol!

My latest 2018 Remote Control Transmitter uses 2.4GHZ frequency and can operate at a maximum distance of 200 feet. Much compact and easier to use. Trigger easily controls mouth movement which a key fob cannot do accurately in real time.

Here is a collection of vent masks I made and sold over the years worldwide. It's not complete as I had to keep the custom ones and a few private.
