V for Vendetta, Background Original Crowd Guy Fawkes Plastic Mask and Hat Set

original movie prop

A production used crowd mask and hat set worn by an extra in the finale of the film. It is labeled as #208 of 460 pieces. By Prop Store w/ Certificate of Authenticity.

These masks are created from white, durable vacuum-formed plastic, shaped from a hero mold block, made and finished in London. Some of the sheets used to form them vary between 1mm and 2mm. The majority of them are cut by a die machine, with the eyes and mouth punctured mechanically, though some masks have these areas cut by hand differently in a possible attempt to make them more accurate. The hat and the wig are stitched together as one piece. There were 500 produced, but only 460 were painted and finally, 400 extras called to use them. All 460 masks were painted by Susi Montoro, who also painted all of V's hero masks. In London, she had some assistance from hobby/amateur artists, so not all of the crowd masks are consistent and much less compared to the heroes. According to sources from the production, the crowd sets were stored away, went missing, and/or destroyed after production was finished. 

Available for purchase soon.
