The Innsmouth Look

"His age was perhaps thirty-five, but the odd, deep creases in the sides of his neck made him seem older when one did not study his dull, expressionless face. He had a narrow head, bulging, watery blue eyes that seemed never to wink, a flat nose, a receding forehead and chin, and singularly undeveloped ears. His long, thick lip and coarse-pored, greyish cheeks seemed almost beardless except for some sparse yellow hairs that straggled and curled in irregular patches; and in places the surface seemed queerly irregular, as if peeling from some cutaneous disease."
- H. P. Lovecraft, The Shadow over Innsmouth

If you're planning a trip to shadow-haunted Innsmouth it might be a good idea to contact James Krstulovich.  His Deep One hybrid mask does a great job of recreating the infamous "Innsmouth look".  It's a latex half-mask that uses the attached knit hat as a suspension.   



Those eyes! :D

It says " bulging watery blue eyes" yet these aren't blue, but my bigger question is, did they also claim to each be a "Lazy eye"?
