War is all that you know. For your clan, war is a permanent state of being. Just as you need meat to sustain you and leather armour to protect your leathery green skin, war keeps your thirst for chaos and violence sated.
Your clan now gathers to prepare for the war against the goblins. The creatures used to be your allies, but in the last battle they became cowardly and ran. Now there is nothing more to be done than to hunt down every one of them and serve them over your fire.
Epic Effects’ Black Bestial Orc is a full Orc Mask with a serious angular face, perfect for a rough and severe Orc soldier. This mask has a classic orc’s distinct features: a belligerent expression with low, furred brow; serrated pointy ears; and a plain nose with large nostrils. The skin is leathery and black with creases and furrows, giving the impression of recent battles. With such attention to detail, this mask has a menacing appearance while also maintaining realism.
The mask is open at the mouth, displaying the wearer’s lower lips and most of the chin. This leaves room for the wearer to speak and be heard properly, and allows a much larger range of expressions. Add your own orc teeth to create an even greater effect!
The mask is made from thick 100% natural high-quality latex, making it strong and durable, ensuring long life and extended reuse. The mask is made with good room for breathing and ventilation, thus improving comfort with extended wear. The mask comes unpainted so that the look and style of the mask can be modified by highlighting it with Epic Effects’ Water Based Makeup from event to event.
