Superhero Masks, Part II

A bevy of superhero-style and domino masks:

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!

Masks for sale at Homegrown!

Until Halloween, some of my masks are for sale at Homegrown, an Artists’ Co-op in Decatur, Georgia. It’s a cute little place on the square, so if you’re local, you should definitely check it out. Decatur has a great pub and restaurant scene, and Homegrown is co-hosting some Halloween events with The Square Pub. You can check out what they’re up to at homegrowndecatur.com.

My masks on display!

Yes, those pillows do appear to have monocles and moustaches.

 

They even have a Mr T Shrine!

 

Butterflies and Faeries and Pixies, oh my!

Took a first run at some butterfly-like designs. The mid-sized one may go through a few stages of evolution, but I was pleased with these to start. I like the way they work with just about any color scheme.

Small, butterfly-like masks in shimmery colors

I call these masks "Pixies," since they've got a kind of playful, whimsical feel.

Butterfly leather mask in teal

A butterfly in shades of shimmery teal and peacock, with elegant gold eyelashes and highlights, and curling antenna. Perfect for a mysterious fairy, or courtly lady.

 

Butterfly Leather mask

This mask is very large and impressive, but the many cut-outs that form the pattern on the wings keeps it lightweight.

Angels and Demons

A few wing-themed designs, for the creatures of darkness and light out there. These put me in mind of a masked ball, but I think they could work for any number of occasions.

Gilded Angel Mask

A mysterious angel in antique gold

A bat-winged mask in black leather

This one would suit an elegant demon or vampire quite well, I think.

'Valkyrie' winged leather mask

I think of this one as the Valkyrie- severe angles, shimmery, icy colors, and a truly epic wingspan- 17 inches!

Steampunk’d!

A couple of fun little designs I did for the Steampunk-themed Time-Travelers’ Ball at Dragon*Con a few weeks ago. These are on the simple side, but I’ve got some more elaborate ideas along these lines that I hope to explore later. Playing with rich brown dyes and sparkly metallics is way too much fun.

 

Steampunk Eyepatch

A steamy eyepatch for the classiest of airship pirates

 

A simple, steampunk-y half-mask

Green Dragon Mask

This is one of the new designs I did this week, a shimmery dragon mask in shades of green. This was a fun way to experiment with tooling and carving some of the heavier leather.
