You remember Rorschach, right? The tall guy in Watchmen with the hat, coat, purple suit and a moving inkblot mask?
Well, if you ever thought his mask was cool, and fancied having one, here it is.
The Rorschach Moving Inkblot Mask is a temperature-sensitive mask that features animated inkblots that react to the heat produced by your breath. First produced in 2009, the mask works in a very simple way: cool air darkens it while warm breath fades the ink and makes it transparent – giving the moving effect.
The Rorschach Moving Inkblot Mask is made with safe materials. The hood is of a perfect blend of nylon and spandex that is 100% non-toxic and the patterns on the mask are made with thermochromic ink that is 100% safe. Because of the nature of the material and ink, the mask should be hand washed only with cold water. Be sure not to use bleach and do not iron. Dry it flat after hand washing.
One Size Fits All
The Rorschach Moving Inkblot Mask is seamed in a way that allows one size to fit all – no matter how big or small your head may be.
Hides Your Features
The mask is a high performance custom hood that conforms to the contours on your face and yet doesn’t reveal your features. So go ahead and execute your pranks in it. People won’t know it’s you.
Practice Makes Perfect
The outcome of the mask, whether it ‘moves’ or not depends completely on you because you control the effects by your breath. So you have to practice directional breathing so that you can master how to stimulate the animation of the inkblot. Otherwise, the mask is just going to look like some ordinary mask with funny-looking ink stains.
Visibility And Breathability
The Rorschach Moving Inkblot Mask permits both visibility (especially in well-lit areas) and breathability. However, for maximum visibility, you should stretch the mask around the eye area to sort of open the weave a bit more.
For pranksters and fans of the Rorschach comics, this would be an amazing gift. And if you manage to get the Rorschach costume for Halloween, this mask would just be the icing on the cake!
