Hollywood Undead

Da Kurlzz's mask in 2006 was basic white with black lips. Before that, he wore a white mask that only covered his eyes.

Swan Songs

Da Kurlzz's mask had a smiley face on its left side and an angry face on his other. He had a grey line splitting them apart.

American Tragedy

Da Kurlzz's faces got switched around with a huge smile being on the left and the angry on the right. The angry side has red arteries that light up. The line that splits it is white, and it also lights up.

Notes from the Underground

Da Kurlzz's mask has a big difference. The mask is still half-and-half. The left side of the mask is white, and the right side is dark red with brown scales. The red half of the mask is supposed to resemble half of his face blown off and the white half to be melted. The mask lights up, making the blown off half mainly bright red. Neither of the faces features the half smile like his previous masks did.

Day of the Dead

Da Kurlzz's mask is still half-and-half. The left side of the mask is still white but the right side is now gunmetal grey. The white half of his mask is angry while the grey half is the smiling one. It no longer lights up like it did in the previous two renditions.
