Transformation Make-up
In 1959, concerned by the lack of communication between the races and wondering what "adjustments and discriminations" he would face as a Black American in the Deep South, the late author John Howard Griffin, a journalist and self-described "specialist in race issues," left behind his life as a Southern white man to step into the body of a stranger.  45+ years later, a writer living in the Midwest will retest his theories about discrimination by conducting a similar social experiment in Ohio.

Green Man Group Mask by Tim Vittetoe Originals
Green Man Latex Pull-over Mask


Green Man Mask
We created custom green man latex masks for executives to wear at a special event.  Inspired by the Blue Man Group look, these masks needed to match the color of the company's logo and be easily removable within seconds for a surprise reveal.

Here's what B&B Media Productions had to say about us:

"I just wanted to let you know that the masks were absolutely extraordinary. The executives who wore them thought they were comfortable, as well as exactly what they were looking for. The color was perfect & the gloves were great. We even decided to get rid one of our other costumes and use the third mask instead.  Again, job well done. I am very pleased at how they turned out and I can not wait to work with you again."
