The masks aren't cheap, either. They'll go on sale for 98,000 yen or CA$1,200 early next year.*

According to the Ottawa Citizen, Okawara chose his original model for the mask from more than 100 applicants.

He plans to keep adding more faces to the collection, the outlet reports.

Okawara was able to lift the features of the unnamed individual onto the mask and give them a realistic 3D look.

It's terrifying and fascinating at the same time.
