Masks Available For Sale...

My Facebook Fan Page...

I am ~thrilled~ to be able to announce that my masks are appearing on stage all over the world right now, as part of Katy Perry's "Prismatic" world tour!  I created three modified versions of my Industrial Egyptian masks for costume designer Marina Toybina, and they are part of an extravagant, spectacular performance with an Egyptian theme.  

Great thanks to Allison Habel and Marina, for being so wonderful to work with.  Allison found me on my Facebook page...that's social media magic for you.  :) (Smile)

Busy busy...I'm in the middle of Halloween madness here.  I don't check messages in DeviantArt often this time of year because my life is too hectic with orders.  If you need me, look for me at my shop ( www.etsy.com/shop/merimask ) or at Facebook ( www.facebook.com/Merimask )

So here is a very special wolf mask I just sent off to Nashville. This guy will be worn in a photo shoot for The Band Perry. How exciting!

Custom Garden Fennec Mask by merimask
Custom Garden Fennec Mask
This mask was a really fun commission; my Venetian Fennec Fox design, plus some natural elements from the garden.  An earthy, flowery, fancy gilded fox.  I even added a separate little leather butterfly for extra dimension and I have to say, it's the cutest thing I've ever made.  :)

Made of leather and love.

Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
United States
I'm a self-representing artist from western New York. Self taught in the art of leather maskmaking, I've been working exclusively with leather sculpture for over twenty years.

In 2006, I created several designs for Cirque Du Soleil. Currently, a synthetic version of my mask "Frivole" is in mass production and available in Cirque Du Soleil gifts shops everywhere.

In 2008, I was invited to create over fifty exclusive masks for the Muscle Musical production "Magicarade", in Tokyo Japan. I appeared on several national Japanese television shows with my masks throughout the 2008-2009 holiday season.

In October of 2009, I appeared on the Martha Stewart Show and demonstrated my mask-making technique on live national television.

In 2010, I was commissioned to create several wolf masks for Halloween season window displays throughout the United States. The masks were featured in Ralph Lauren Rugby store windows everywhere.

In 2011, A quartet of my white wolves were featured in an international cosmetics advertising campaign. The wolf masks were used in a fashion photo shoot for Lise Watier Cosmetiques "Neiges" perfume, shot in Toronto. The advertisements appeared throughout Canada during the 2011 holiday season. You can see YouTube videos of the photo shoot here:

In 2011, I designed four owl masks for an up and coming UK hip-hop group called The Four Owls. Currently, the masks can be seen in performances and videos all throughout Europe and the UK.
Video for the second single 'Not Like Before', taken from 'The Four Owls' debut album 'Nature's Greatest Mystery' on High Focus Records, 5th December. Video directed, filmed and edited by Harry Wheeler. Video can be seen here:

Also in 2011, my white fox mask was featured in an independent film; "White Fox Mask". A GWYCKY FILMS production...official website here: www.gwyckyfilms.com/home.html
The movie has just premiered at the American Film Festival in Poland.

In the summer of 2012, I was commissioned to produce designs for the Metropolitan Opera. My Anubis masks appeared on stage (and simulcast in movie theaters across the world) in the 2013 production of "Rigoletto".

Also in 2013, my black fox mask appeared on episode 304 of the ABC hit TV show "Once Upon A Time".

I saw someone wearing one of your masks (or at least I believe it was one) at a local convention last week.

Good job on the wolf masks! I'd really like to buy one, but I don't have that kind of money at all xD If I can manage to scrap money together for one, I'll buy it ^^ Well, I just wanted to tell you how well-made they are :b
