Alternate Color Kitsune Masks

Had another go at the kyogen-style Japanese fox mask. These color schemes aren’t at all traditional, but I thought they were pretty striking, anyway!

This mask is called “Inari,” after the Japanese god of foxes.* The fox (kitsune) is a traditional character in Japanese masked drama, and I’ve tried to incorporate some elements of those classic character masks into my version.

*The namesake of those tasty Inarizushi, because of his purported fondness for fried tofu.
