Demon Dog Mask by merimask Demon Dog Mask by merimask
Well, here's a mask I made a few years ago but never properly photographed...so I thought I'd rectify the situation today.

This is a leather mask based on the "Inuyasha" manga/anime series. Sesshoumaru, as a demon dog. I was waaay into the manga until it ended earlier this year (well, not as into it as I used to be...frankly it went on & on & on much longer than it needed to. A sort of manga-as-soap-opera situation there). Still, Sess was always one of my favorite characters. He was a really pretty guy who would turn into a giant dog youkai, in my opinion he looked like a gigantic saluki with interesting face paint.

So anyway yeah...fits in with my Japanese theme 'cause it's based on anime!

I love all your masks, but I'm gonna fav this one because this is the mask that introduced me to your work a long time ago. (It was on a mutual friend's lj after she purchased it.)

You're so talented!

All of your masks are so amazing. I have one question: some of them look like they have texture, do you emboss/tool your leather?

Wonderful job on the mask of Sessho-Maru's inu youkai dog form in the Inu-Yasha manga. Never seen the anime version of Inu-Yasha yet. The manga's always better than the anime in my opinion. My favorite couple in the series was Inu-Yasha and Kagome. I did like Sessho-Maru even though I usually go for the heroes. :wow: =D

I agree with the person who said that the show would have been a really awesome and inspiring series had they cut out all the unnecessary filler crap and slimmed it down to twenty episodes or so - I'd actually been thinking the same thing myself, lol. I'd have also liked them to not make Inu Yasha's sword so humongous and had him rely on it so much. It would have been cooler to have him do the blades of blood/iron reaver chant more and make the sword smaller, that way when he actually wielded the thing it would be much cooler and meaningful.

There's a lot more I could rant and rave about but I won't - I haven't even seen the whole series yet and haven't gotten through the manga scans, either. ;)

I WILL say that I thoroughly enjoy this. It made me really happy to see this in my watch list today. I'm not a huge Sesshoumaru fan, but I really wish they had done more with him, to be honest with you. He was a very interesting character and I wish they had taken better advantage of that.

It's a real shame the creator of the series didn't do a better job and cut out all the soap opera angst and unnecessary filler crap, it was an incredibly fantastic idea, really.
