Blue Maneki Neko Mask by merimask Blue Maneki Neko Mask by merimask
This is a very special version of my Maneki Neko mask. Maneki Neko is the "lucky cat" of Japan.

This was made as a gift for a friend. She deserves a Lucky Cat, since it was a very fortunate day for me when I met her! When I was in Tokyo in October, she took me to Odaiba and we rode on the Sky Wheel. I know it seems silly, but it was something I'd REALLY wanted to do, so it was a big moment for me.

We also went to Muscle Park... [link] where we got to play some really silly games. I especially liked the train display of Tokyo...I felt like Godzilla! [link]

It was SO cool, really. I totally love her. ^_^

Anyway! Yeah...this is another of my hand shaped, hand carved leather masks. You can visit my Etsy shop here: [link]

It really is, isn't it? There's nothing dignified about it. ^__^
