Shawn Caplinger of Cap's Works in Smithville is giving away several of his high-end masks at the Smithville Police Department’s Halloween celebration Thursday.Caplinger has worked with some of the biggest names in the horror film industry, including Rob Zombie and Kane Hodder, as well as working with actors from the Walking Dead TV series. He will bring a number of his hand-made, professional quality masks and other items from his shop.“I’ve been really lucky with this,” Caplinger told the Review. It started out as a hobby, I was basically just fooling around and learned how to make masks, and it just caught on.”Even though he has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry, Caplinger said that his shop is still a hobby, and that he enjoys the sideline very much.“I don’t really even watch horror movies,” He said.
