Airship Pirate, brown leather and gold Steampunk mask
I call this mask “Airship Pirate” since that was it's inspiration. The base is papier mache that has been covered in a salvaged piece of soft worn brown leather. The right eye has a circular opening made by a gold metal ring that is full of sparkling rhinestones. The left eye has an opening but is mostly covered by a gold watch case, also encrusted with rhinestones. The band of the watch stretches across the face of the mask, so the effect is that of an eye-patch. A band of stamped gold metal curves over the end of the nose. The inside is black.
Due to the watch case, as well as the shape and placement of the eye=holes, this mask could severely restrict the wearers vision, so please wear responsibly!
This piece is 8 1/2” (22 cm) wide, 4 1/2” (11.5 cm) high and around 2” (5 cm) deep. The vintage brown ribbon ties are 14” ( 36 cm) long. It is signed and titled on the inside.
Due to the size and shape, you must choose the "Canada Post Large Air box" option for shipping.
This mask has been strongly influenced by the steampunk design style. The highly asymmetrical look of it means that it is looks more quirky, when worn, than flattering.
