Chris is also known as “ Mr. Picklenose” as he wears a leather mask with a long nose during concerts and in the music videos. His mask is a two part set with a black hood that covers his head and a mask that covers just his face.
This mask reflects my comic personality. Plus I chose it for the bondage factor. When you put it on, it takes you to another place. It's very hot, it's very tight, and it hurts - that goes with aggression we create.- Chris Fehn
The nose on the mask is 7 inches long and he has several versions of the mask. The look-alike mask of Chris Fehn is for sale in various outlets for the fans of Slipknot along with other Slipknot merchandise.
