Custom Wedding Masks by merimask Custom Wedding Masks by merimask
I just completed these custom wedding masks...a special order from my Etsy shop.

They are accented with burgundy, to match the wedding couples' colors. I think they'll make a fine pair.

As ever, the masks are my own original designs made of 8oz veg-tanned leather. Hand carved and hand shaped using no molds or forms. Painted with Liquitex acrylics.

Custom orders gladly accepted at my Etsy shop: [link]

Custom Wedding Masks by *merimask is a gorgeous set of wedding masks with a steampunk theme. The bold colors really set these hand carved and painted masks apart, can't you just picture the wedding couple flaunting these masks at their wedding reception?

I have a such love with these masks. And your mask crafts are very inspiring. They're really wonderful. Maybe I'll ask you to do my wedding masks if you'd be willing to, if I ever come across that dreamy day's possibilitiy. :D

It's beautiful. I don't know which one I like more. The bird beaked one that reminds me of the old times doctors who avoided the black plague with such marvelous creations, or, the foxed one that reminds me of a white and red jinchuuriki, if I spelled it right. They're really nice! C:

These are especially unique! Not only would I have never thought of using a mask at a wedding, I especially would not have thought of using a fox or pointed nosed one. 030

The designs are very neat, simple, but take up the necessary amount of space, the colors are great and so is the craftsmanship. ^^

It never occurred to me to have masks at a wedding. If I ever get married, though, I think this is now a must.
Great work!

It doesn't seem like we have much of a choice, does it? So many people here want to see pictures, I'd almost feel bad if we didn't!

Really, everything about them is absolutely wonderful! You really did a fantastic job. Of course I had to try it on right away!
