Available for purchase here: [link]

Also recently dubbed by fans as "Purple Cthulhu," and "Mind Flayer," this mask is quite eye catching! Featuring all eight tentacles as well as some little white suction cups. Painting all those tentacles was challenging, but well worth the effort. Dare you add some tentacle fun to your face? ;)

The Octopus mask was created from 8 ounce vegetable tanned leather and liquitex acrylic paint. It is sealed with liquitex matte varnish, which can withstand anything from sweat to rain (though heavy water exposure is not recommended).

For as creepy as I find the Octopus, you've managed to turn it into something quite elegant and colorful. Awesome work!

Despite all the stupid hentai jokes you could make, I still wanna take this seriously. Maybe it's because it does make me think of Cthulhu. Hey, it's more intimidating than Davy Jones.

Oh god haha. Thanks for not going there XD
We have a green version as well that probably resembles Cthulhu more.

But then, all of your masks are!!! :love:



Have you made any progress on an "over the glasses" mask? :?
OakMyth's avatar
Ooh yes we have! Ive been meaning to contact you about that haha. We've called them crowns; they're decorative pieces that fit over the forehead and come down around the cheek bones. Do you have a favorite color you would want?
