We pride ourselves on providing our customers with a warm and personal service. We want you to look and feel like a Hollywood star when wearing our silicone masks and costumes or 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 armour.


After training with some of Hollywood and the UK’s best sculptors he is designing his own hyper-realistic silicone masks, having built an outstanding reputation for his creativity, attention to detail, and craftsmanship.

Steve’s experiences on set with film directors, theatre productions, and as a regular comic-con costumer mean 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!!!"
