We want you to look and feel like a Hollywood star when wearing our silicone and resin masks, prosthetics, and costume pieces, or when using our props. If you smash it, we smash it.

Owner Steve Braund established Mind Magic Studios in 2014 to share his fascination with creatures and masks. Steve started by making hard-to-source costume parts, screen-accurate masks/cowls, and rubber body armor.  


After training with some of Hollywood and the UK’s best sculptors, Steve now designs and sells his own hyper-realistic silicone and resin masks, and designs and makes custom masks and prosthetics fx pieces and props. His clients include film, television, and theatre productions, scare attractions, costumers, and private art collectors.  He also makes mascot/logo masks for bands and games companies.


Steve has built a solid reputation for his creativity, attention to detail, and craftsmanship. His on-set experience with film directors and theatrical wardrobe departments, and as a regular mask-wearing comic-con costumer, means that he understands the exacting standards, quality, and wearability that you require. His knowledge of materials and industry-leading production techniques means that the result will be breathtaking whether it’s his designs or your own. 


Step into the magic, where every mask tells a story and every prop carries a piece of the dream.

When Steve completed the prestigious creature sculpting course, taught by Hollywood sculpting legend Don Lanning at Gorton Studio, Don had this to say:

"Concept & Sculpture = A+. On point and focused, you can brainstorm with Steve and get some real options on the menu before hitting the clay! Thank you Brother!!!" 

Michael Keaton's Batman stuntman, the late Dave Lea, after wearing our armour for a photoshoot during a UK visit said:.

"The suit was so good I wanted to take it back to the US with me!"
