CogMonocle SteamFox mask by merimask CogMonocle SteamFox mask by merimask
New experiment: my "goggle + mask" idea evolves to include less expensive modern goggles, customized, and added to a revised version of my clockwork fox mask. I don't have a name yet. "SteamFox w/ Goggle"? "CyberFox"? I'm also thinking of calling the half goggle a "Gizmonocle" but I fear that's too close to Joel Hodgson's "Gizmonics" so, eh...copyright issues?

This will be in my shop soon...I just have to add the buckles and straps. It's not really the kind of mask you want to use ribbons on.

Made with leather, goggles, acrylic paint, clock gears and a mile of patience and love. :)

EDIT: "CogMonocle", supplied by a FaceBook fan. :) I love it, and it's not derivative of anything. So; "CogMonocle SteamFox"

Well if you want a little twist on the word Fox, Liska means Fox in Czech and Zorro means Fox in Spanish.

Ooh man, this is too awesome! I really wanted the regular fox mask, but now I think I want this more. I love the steampunk theme and I think it fits well! Great work as always! :D

Tomorrow...I just added a really nice black strap and buckle (this wouldn't look right with ribbons), but I need daylight to photograph it, and then it'll be in my shop ready to go to a new home. :)

Very cool! Plus, it let's you see the world through a rose coloured lens... so everything will look 50% perfect! ;)

LOL! Exactly! Actually looking through it (with one clear and one red eye) is a bit disconcerting, like 3-D glasses. But hey...it's meant for fun and not perfect visual acuity so I'm not sweating it. :) I'll include a clear lens (you can easily unscrew the cap and switch out the red lens) when I sell it.

And by the way, congratulations! :party: Impending fatherhood! You'll be a great dad...just keep that sense of humor and you'll be fine. ;)

Thats a really clever Idea. You should try it with an owl. Steam punk eyes on an owl would be awesome.

Yes!! And with one creepy round goggle-eye it'll be even cooler. :) Or maybe I'd do that one with both eyes. Hmm...

Could do the one. Then change it if your unhappy.
But steam punk animal masks is an awesome idea.
