Always searching for new ideas Merimask is a  self taught leather mask maker from USA. You can watch a big gallery of her  masks at the crafter Deviant Art gallery where you can contact her to commission a mask and get a custom made done, or you can browse her Merimask etsy store to see the items  ready to ship (in case that you can´t wait!). She´s worked for theater works in Japan (and in fact many of her models seems to be nourished by japanese folklore and even anime) and also for Ralph Lauren and Circus du Soleil.

Barn owl leather mask

This is my favorite :) (along with the wolves :). I like the dragons too!! Difficult to choose! I'd love to commission a viking design white wolf for my videoclip... or maybe get the barn owl... arg!! By the way this barn owl is a nice addition to those ones attempting to dress like Jareth, refresh your memory reading our article about  Jareth, the Goblin King) of along a wintery hood and snow landscape. Nice barn owl masks are a rare find!
The masks are  hand carved from one piece of 8oz leather, hand shaped, and painted with Liquitex acrylics

Don´t worry if you see an item is sold... if it was ever done, she can custom made it to you.

Some example of dragons, there are some very ambitious "chinese dragon" and asian motifs.

But there is more... Ancient Egypt deities, animals, accessories...

There´s a limited  number of each model being done, but really there are no two items are alike. Each is a signed, dated (in some cases, numbered) piece.

For Steampunk lovers here you have as example a custom pair of masks done for a wedding
