Here is a mask that is something new and different for me: a bird skull mask. Made for a new friend of mine who participates in LARP, this is for his barbarian character's "transformation" mode. I painted the leather to look like a weathered, old skull and gave it some carved designs inspired by artist
- the carved runes on the forehead spells out the name of my friend's group.
Made from two separate pieces of 8oz leather, painted with a mixture of Eco-Flo dyes/Liquitex Soft-Bodied Acrylics and then stitched together. The mask is worn with a leather strap and adjustable buckle and I also added padded suede pieces on the inside for comfort whilst my friend runs around during the LARP matches
