Gold Dragon Half Mask by merimask Gold Dragon Half Mask by merimask
A new mask along the same lines as my half-unicorn...a half-dragon leather mask.

I wondered if losing the snout would make this look less dragon-loke when worn, but it still works (I made sure to add plenty of scales). This dragon looks less dramatic on the wall but it is MUCH more comfortable to wear (and more affordable too).

Like all my work, you can purchase this mask in my Etsy shop: [link]

This is so gorgeous! I really like how it looks without the snout. It looks a lot more comfortable and a bit easier to wear as well. I love it!

stunning work! This is such a beautiful take on a dragon half-mask. It's not overly worked, keeping with a scaled pattern and the horns are lovely :)

It's a pretty universal idea (half mask...nothing new)just executed in my style. I like the wearbility of this design, myself.

OOO that would be cool. I saw time warp and it showed bubbling mercury and it was so pretty. Lots of shiny silver waves and bubbles.

Thank you. :-) It needs the scales or it could be mistaken for an imp or a demon, I suppose.

Definitely still has an unmistakeable "dragon" look to it and I imagine it would be a lot lighter. Great masquerade ball material!

The "mane frills" along the cheeks of the mask really help to accentuate the draconic look!

It needed a little extra something to keep it from looking like a demon or imp mask, I thought...
