Leather Hawk Skull Fantasy LARP Mask by b3designsllc Leather Hawk Skull Fantasy LARP Mask by b3designsllc
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 :icondonsimpson: - 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 :)

This is incredible Roland...how did I miss this piece?  Truly amazing!  I love the added dimension you got by making it in two pieces.

holy cow man, ive been slowly playing with making some masks, and this is awesome... some of your coolest work by far. it turned out fantastic, the dye and the acrylic mix made a great bone color, while your shaping on the brow ridge makes it pop.

Thanks!  This was really an experimental piece and I had to do a couple of smaller prototypes before settling on the final design.  Playing around with the paints and dyes together and being all sorts of messy and non uniform with the paint job was also pretty fun - hope to do more like this in the future!
