Amaterasu Kitsune Mask 2 by merimask Amaterasu Kitsune Mask 2 by merimask
I know this design exists elsewhere in my gallery, but...eh. I just made a new one, it's prettier than the last one, and I took better pictures. So, Amaterasu Kitsune Revisited.

This mask is inspired by the video game "Okami" Google it...prettiest PS2 game ever. You get to save the world with art. As a beautiful wolf. What could be better?

This is NOT a wolf, however. This is a kitsune, or Japanese fox spirit. The markings work really well as a nearly traditional kitsune mask. I think the Sumi-E swirls in her ears are especially spiffy. :-)

Hand carved, hand shaped leather. Painted with Liquitex acrylics. For sale in my Etsy shop: [link]

Do you by any chance know any good places (offline... Michaels maybe?) where I could buy a similar mask to paint? I know you made yours, but is it possible you know of some easy way to purchase these offline... I currently have no way of purchasing online.

Thank you. :-) The Sumi-e elements are my favorite part too, because that's what I loved best about the game. SO pretty. Where the heck is the sequel??

You are right, the markings work perfectly for a kitsune. This would totally look gorgeous next to the Rao version, and the ear swirlies give it that wonderful bit of charm c:

NO, please don't! Pleather is plastic and will melt or possibly catch fire.

1-800 TANNERY, or Google leather suppliers.
