Commission: Kanohi Pakoire by 0nuku Commission: Kanohi Pakoire by 0nuku
The Kanohi Pakoire, Mask of Imitation, allows a user to mimic the mask of another being and take on its powers for a limited time. A mask designed by Flickr User The Mask Jacker for his self-MOC, Makuta Blackwing, and commissioned from me for $50. I took some liberties based on the way I drew it for another commission. Order it on Shapeways!

And if you want a commission for yourself, be sure to check out my Journal to get all the information on how you can get your own designs 3D printed!

Asking both 0nuku and Elphin-Zephyr :

I really like how this one and other Kanohi (0nuku made) look and I would like to use them in my canon. Problem is that I'm associating them to different powers and/or characters than the ones they were intended for, which surely might not sit well with the original authors.
For example, I feel this could be a fantastic looking alternate version of G2 Makuta's Mask of Control in my continuity. But it is Elphin's Mask and that's not the power he wants that Mask to have.

I'm asking if you guys would be fine with me doing this, on the off chance I might publish some stuff that fits my continuity in the future. An example would be a Makuta MOC that uses the Pakoire, with the description stating that he's actually wearing a Mask of Control. I would always, of course, give due credit to the original authors and state that that is only my personal interpretation of the Mask and its powers.

If you happen to not like this, I would have no problems refraining from publishing my interpretation. I dislike trampling other people's visions and I would never do anything that remotely resembles such behaviour. Sorry for the long comment.

The Pakoire has the ability to use the powers of a mask that it has absorbed for a certain amount of time so to some extent it can be the Mask of Control whilst still being the Mask of Imitation. The appearance doesn't have to change when the ability changes so for example it wont look like a Hau when it selects the Hau's abilities.
If you need more info, dont hesitate to ask :)

Thank you. I guess I didn't explain myself well; I was asking your permission to use this design/shape to represent my version of Makuta's Mask of Control (since my Makuta is an hybrid between the G1 and G2 versions)- the lore behind my mask is linked to Makuta only and is not related to your Pakoire. It's that I dislike Lego's Mask of Control and thought your Pakoire looked like a beautiful alternate design. The side horns, the pseudo-beard, the menacing and stern glare, it kinda looks like the Mask of Control but a lot cooler.

So it'd be something other than what you originally intended- which is why I'm asking for your permission to use the design. I would definitely see how you would be opposed to this, and if you say no it's completely fine for me.

I'm just the modeler, the design and power still belongs to Elphin-Zephyr

So it's basically a slightly less useful mask of conjuring?
Elphin-Zephyr Featured By Owner Edited Aug 14, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I dont know whether to feel insulted or complimented :/

Although it does give me the opportunity to refine the mask's abilities, which I will be doing.

I meant no offense...
I just noticed that it has near identical powers to the Mask Of Conjuring, just more limited.

You can still make a mask of time out of it, though.

To be honest, the abilities have been a bit up-in-the-air for a while so I'm not too sure what unique ability the mask would have involving taking mask power or similar. So I guess the Pakiore would be an improved version of the Mask of Conjuring where it would be instantaneous and with no repercussion like the Conjuring. 

Whilst writing this, I should've mentioned to 0nuku before; the user can only take on the powers of a mask they have acquired and absorbed in the past e.g. only by taking the Kanohi Hau can the user then use its abilities.

Well sure the Mask of Conjuring has a wider range of abilities, but it also has specific requirements such as time to program and weaknesses that have to be written into it. This one is pretty much instantaneous.
