Fantastic piece! Nice stitch work.
Ah, the plague doctors, such iconic figures ... particularly this mask makes me think of Poe's ravens.

Wow, I've been looking at all your works, all of them incredible, but I'd have to say this one is definitely my favourite. Looks like a huge amount of effort and love has been put into this. I look forward to the day when I can afford to purchase something similar from your Etsy.

So are your mask functional, Like can you see out the eye holes and breath in them?

:icontombanwell:
TomBanwell Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2010
Yes, they are designed to be worn. Dr. Beulenpest has dark lenses which are easy to look out of, but near impossible to look into, so the wearer can remain anonymous. I put ventilation holes in my masks also.

Well thats cool. Couldent even tell from the photos. I don't know what perfession your in now but I think since you can make sutch beautiful functional pices you should probabbly be like the grate hollywood coustume designer or something. Awsome work....So do you sell your mask? If so how mutch do thay run for. I sent a link of your gallery to a friend of mine that would absoluttly kill for one of those lovelly mask or tophats...
