Joining the Menagerie – FC2018

With a hectic 2017 in the distant past, its time to look towards the next year. No shortage of fun events related to gear, masks or costuming in general. For Stego, it has been quite a while since he has attended a convention, since 2017 did compel us to slow down and deal with any of the unpleasant challenges.

Stego will enjoy meeting with fellow scalies and fuzzies hanging out at Further Confusion 2018. Despite all the orders we are finishing up, he managed to finish a jackal just in time for the art show. It will come with some extra hookups for this year’s art show, which might appeal to those who like to add on gear.  Our mask offering is located in the FC 2018 Art Show, Table A4

Our JG 1.5 wont be alone on the table, as our table area will also offer some designs from Scaleworx. Taku Dragon has been working hard in the lab, perfecting his craft and has come up with some items special for the art show.  Squeaky sergals and rabbits can rejoice, knowing that there is a gasmask design just for them.


While enjoying ‘labcon’ on a weekend of my own, I am going to be working on more gallery updates. Been slowly working on some cleanup with the website galleries. Hope you have enjoyed what has been shared thus far, but we may tweet more in real time as the art show continues.

Once our dino has returned we will be working through the rest of the month on end-of-year stuff alongside finishing up our current orders. Wild Gasmasks will soon be changing gears and no shortage on things to begin this year with.

Sending 2015 Packing, Here’s Whats Next

The holiday months are always a slower time for us, as we spend time with family and our schedules change. With the slower workload in winter months, we often find it perfectly aligned with making changes for the next year.  Things were slightly different this time, but we still find ourselves working on some projects that have us revisiting some ideas.

We also have Further Confusion coming up. With our progress, we have a couple (if not a few) pieces for sale at Further Confusion’s Art Show. Expect us to post (or tweet) more detail as time draws closer.

Speaking of custom paint designs, there is a slight change towards how we deal with masks that have a custom paint design. After a few bumps in the road regarding custom painted orders this year, we realize the commitment that such a task entails. As such, custom paint designs will require a non-refundable deposit.

With this new year, people often think of significant change.  To Kat, there is no better time like the present to improve on yourself and create something new or forge a new path from your passions.  There are things all of us here in the lab can think of which we would like to bring forth but we always take these things one day at a time.  Instead, we are lead to appreciate all the experiences that our masks have become a part of.  With the last site updates of 2015 complete, check out the last year of Wildgasmask fun (Go to our full customer gallery to see more.)

A Little More Availability

Stego here, with a small update on what has been going on around here.  Work has demanded a bit more hours out of me, and I have been (slowly) fighting a bit of a cold.  I took some family time for my brother’s birthday but now the weekend has come and its time to get back on it.  Processing of orders should go a bit faster now, including this weekend where I have shut myself up in the lab and wont come out until we can move items from MANUFACTURING into ASSEMBLY status.

For now, have some more available inventory….

Angled Hose Assembly –  Our assembly combines two black angled hoses with one of our black wyes. An army green canister is also included. These assemblies are designed for our masks which feature 2 ports on the side (horses and jackals).

Composite image showing Wildgasmasks' Angled Hose AssemblyWe dont always have these in stock but when we do, we want to let you guys know that we have them.  In this case, we have just one set, so please contact us if you are interested. (update: 10/5/2015: sorry, this item is no longer available)

Wild N Free Inventory – Of course, we still have some masks available for immediate shipment. An HG2 and KG1 is available, alongside our experimental “Wild Gasmask”.  This creation has been getting inquiries as this does feature a hood built into its modified shell and offers something different as far as encasement and airflow. We think this will become like the slipper that Cinderella wore, as it will be about finding the right fit (as well as aesthetic).

We hope you guys can continue being patient with us, while we continue to work towards bringing back some more sought-after creations.

We Are Catching Up, While the Horse Goes to Market – AUCTION UPDATE

Gasping for air (or rather, some time to sit down and write), we can now bring you a much-needed update. Lets knock that Further Confusion post further down the page while giving you a bit of insight into what has been happening with us.

Since returning from Califur, our team had to get back into the flow of our primary jobs. It has been demanding and our respective work schedules have put us out of synch with one another.  On the plus side, we do have some inventory left over from the convention, which is still available on our Wild and Free page.

Admittedly, we are not producing masks as quickly as we normally expect to (6-8 weeks for standard mask orders). As much as we regret the way our customers may feel about this, our Real Life obligations need to come first.   Fortunately, demand for our products has not diminished, and consequently the wait has grown to full expectancy. We continue to do our best to meet customers’ desires,  including answering emails from an ever-increasing amount of prospective customers.

Of note, if you like our horse masks and desire a hood, we have been made aware that our friend Spring Pony is selling her hooded mask.  Details can be seen after the jump.
