Valkyrie Mask

This is one of my favorite designs. A stunning mask in the shape of spread feathery wings that shade from silver to pearl white to steel blue. The icy colors of this mask, and the sharp shape of the feathers put me in mind of a Valkyrie, but it could go well with any number of costumes.

This mask is big! Each wing is 11 inches from base to tip, and the wingspan is 17 inches!

Like all my masks, this one is made from vegetable-tanned leather, hand tooled and shaped, then hardened with water and heat. It is then painted with a combination of non-toxic, water-based dyes and acrylics, and sealed to protect it from dirt and moisture.

This mask is available for purchase! [link]

This mask is really really beautiful! I love the look of leather masks. They have something very expressive compared to other. And this mask is a masterpiece!

(Sorry for my bad english)

I like this, the symmetry, the color, but for experimental purposes try bending the wings back a bit so they fit the head and flow out the back, because personally, as funny as it would be, I wouldn't want to be at a gathering and turn around to look at something and knock someone over with my wings.
Plus the bent wings give it that more sleek valkyrie aura, then with the wings tipping up like they do, it would be excellent.
Just a thought :D

This is beautiful! The shades of off white and blue are lovely, as for the whole wing design. Very elegant and breath taking. I wants it but I have no money at the moment. ;^;
