here are my two newest masks i have made Smiley

they are both made from vegetable tanned leather, and are hand dyed and coloured by me.
the first one is this awesome pacman mask that i made inspired by my boyfriends obsession for Pacman and retro games in general.


and the second one was inspired from a mixture of holiday spirit, and pagan undertones.
the holly king is the darker half of the masculine yearly cycle, he rules over the darker half of the year (autumn winter) and eventually gives up his throne to the green man and so on the cycle of the year. it is an adults mask and is hand molded by me Smiley



i hope you like them, i sure enjoy making them!
