Chris Russell realized his love for monsters as a child. Chris’ father is a magician who designed illusions and special effects for local haunted attractions and this allowed Chris to become involved in all things scary at a very young age. He was lucky enough to get his first job at a magic and costume store around the age of 12. Chris performed magic tricks for customers in the store and traded his services to the store owner for the latex Halloween masks on the shelves upstairs.
TwistedToybox.net began making custom high quality collector masks and costumes in the year 2000. Since then, we have supplied all sorts of custom masks, costumes and props to those needing things that are scary all over the world. Chris’ designs are also featured in many popular pro haunted attractions across the USA. Chris Russell is not only the artist behind TwistedTOybox.net but he also designs for other mask and prop companies within the industry.
Chris continues to create monsters, aliens and costumes for film, haunted attractions, theme parks and monster collectors worldwide. Taking on request for special commissioned projects from time to time keeps new and exciting things happening. Although, when asked what his favorite work to do in the studio is ? He says: “spending my time creating original monsters and creatures to be turned into latex Halloween masks just like the ones I loved so much in that old magic store as a kid”.
Chris Russell’s TwistedToybox.net offers some of the highest quality monsters available…. made FOR monster lovers, BY a monster lover.
