Bear in mind that for an artist to create something similar to what's on Face off, it would cost a few hundred dollars.

You should expect to contribute towards the cost, especially for full cowls etc - Silicone is not cheap, foam latex although cheaper still has a high cost overhead in the set up for an oven etc, plus you have to consider that for custom fit a life cast needs to be made, again none of this is cheap.

Face off is a great programme for showing creativity but it really isn't realistic in the effects world, the quality of some of the work over such a short time frame would command a heavy financial premium in the real world.  The triangle of good - fast -cheap (pick two) very much applies.

also the only school I can think of off top of head near you is Joe Blasco's and I guess they would have a long line of models ready and willing. 

I would suggest contacting them and seeing what they say, if you would be able to travel there are lots of schools: Savini's, Westmores, MUD, CMS etc., get a copy of Make Up Artist Magazine and ring round all the schools advertising in there.  There are also some excellent schools in Canada.
