Last Summer I decided that I would need a leather mask. I have been interested in working with leather for quite a long time, so I gave it a try and made a mask to wear at some fancy-dress ball.
It was only my second attempt at working with leather, so it was pretty much just trial and error.

I used a very old purse my grandmother gave me for the leather (and that has literally fallen apart all by itself at that point)
I also decided that a plaster mold of my head was something I really had to have, but more on that later. I guess it's time for pictures now:






And on my creepy plaster head


Here is the creepy mold of my face all by itself. It kinda creeps me out, looking all dead and, well, creepy. But it really helped in the process, so I'm glad to have it.


And: Action shot. Excuse that lame tired-after-the-party-at-6-in-the-morning-version of myself


Thanks for looking!

Thank you!

I also made the shirt with the standing collar and the choker the whole outfit except the corset and shoes, actually, so I am really happy that you like it!
