Cheshire's Mask by Angelic-Artisan Cheshire's Mask by Angelic-Artisan
| My Etsy Shop | My Tumblr |

See the WIP deviation for notes on this mask's construction:


Here we have a custom order I created for a client who will be attending New York Comic Con cosplaying as Cheshire from Young Justice. She's my favorite character from the show, as it happens! I can't wait to see this mask in action at the con! I'll be sure to share pictures of her in her ensemble as soon as I have them.

Carved from a single piece of 6 oz leather, molded by hand, and painted by hand with acrylics. Sealed with glossy varnish and affixed to the face with black elastic bands.

I am open to custom orders such as this one as long as they follow my own inspirations and I have the time for them. Message me via notes here or my Etsy shop for my availability.

Nice work! Leather is a great medium to work with especially for masks. If you end up making this again and would like more vibrant color, I would suggest using leather paint rather than acrylics :)

Actually I just tried a method of sealing the black dye undercoat with mod podge and that has helped the layers of acrylic to be that much more vibrant and even!

Thanks Carl! Means a lot coming from a master crafter like yourself.:D

By the by, you should totally check out our discussion going on at the #LeatherMaskArt group right now. I think you could have a lot of thoughts to add on it! If you had the time, we'd most appreciate it.:) It is here: [link]

This is very cool. You even got the teeth right. :)

Thanks! I noticed how the teeth vaguely contrasted with her overall mask. It was a very particular detail of it for that to work. Glad someone noticed the attention to them. XD
