Bruce Spaulding Fuller

Halloween Mask Sculptor / Character Design

Fueled by comic books, Monster magazines, and the Saturday afternoon creature features, Bruce longed to be a Mad Doctor just like Dr. Frankenstein and his ilk - toiling away on the birth of monsters. Through magazines like Famous Monsters of Filmland, and later Starlog and Fangoria, secrets were divulged, information was gleaned and Bruce came to understand that monsters were made on Hollywood soundstages by makeup artists & monster makers extraordinaire such as Lon Chaney, Jack Pierce and Dick Smith.

Pursuing that dream, he worked the standard jobs of any young man while refining his talents at night in his apartment laboratories.

Perseverance and hard work paid off when, through a series of happy synergies, he met his first professional, Edward French, and was hired soon after as an assistant on Ed’s next few shows. Shortly thereafter, Bruce was “discovered” by John Caglione and Doug Drexler and brought to California to work on the Oscar winning makeups of Dick Tracy. Since then he has gone on to work on many a Hollywood blockbuster and been mentored by nearly all the greats in the field.

Bruce has been proudly making his career from his dark imaginings full time since the 80’s. And like Dr. Frankenstein, He breathes life into Monsters of the Imagination nearly every day.

Trick or Treat Studios is thrilled to have Bruce on our team!

By the way, Bruce is the good looking one next to the Vampire!
