In the above video we cover some of the Liar mask history and the use of Liars by the band Slipknot. Distortions has made a number of masks throughout the years that have been used by Slipknot and other bands.
Ed found inspiration for the original Liar mask in the Greeley Tribune when he saw an article and photo of a French protestors using something like it. This was in the 90's and Ed recalls thinking the image was strange and many in the protest were wearing a mask that inspired what became our Liar mask. So, Ed sculpted the Liar, which originally came with a pointed red hat.

The mask took an unexpected turn in its history when the band Slipknot picked it up and began converting it to use in their stage shows and work. They personalized the masks, cutting them, adding stitching, metal rivets, zippers, paint and more. It was worn by members such a Chris Fehn and Brandon Darner.
Today, many people buy the mask and use it as is. In addition a large number of people buy it to convert to a Slipknot conversion. When people search for this mask they often refer to it as Liar, Liar Mask, Liars Mask, Slipknot Liar Mask, Slipknot Nose Mask among other names.
