Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action, and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

​If you're planning on a low-budget, last-minute, or lazy costume for Halloween, dressing like your friends (or yourself) is always a safe bet. 

But if you want to take it to the next level or really be the creepiest person at the party, Japanese designers at Real-f have just the trick. 

REALFACES, the company's hyper-realistic masks, are made from a "three-dimensional photo form" (also called 3DPF), which creates a duplicate every pore, blood vessel, and freckle on your face with the help of a very expensive camera and printer. 

Real-f is currently taking orders online and marketing the product as a "memorial portrait" that you or a loved one can leave behind. 

We'll just take it to the party.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
