Mind Magic Studios prides itself on providing our clients with a warm, professional, and personal service. 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. It’s a partnership made in magic!

Owner Steve Braund established Mind Magic Studios in 2014 to share his fascination with creatures and masks. Steve started out making hard-to-source costume parts, screen-accurate masks/cowls, and 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 for media productions. He has built a solid reputation for his creativity, attention to detail, and craftsmanship.

Steve’s on-set experience with film directors and theatrical productions, and as a regular 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 whether it’s his designs or your own, the result will be breathtaking.

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!!!"
