March-of-Time Hare V6 by merimask March-of-Time Hare V6 by merimask
This is cool. I ordered these ~wonderful~ clock and watch parts from a repair/antique dealer in London. They came on Friday in the mail and are plain awesome. This is a movement from a vintage Russian pocket watch, with these HUGE rubies (the jewels are a pivot-point for gear spindles; they don't wear away like metal does so they used to use real rubies, diamonds, or quartz for watch movements)...it's a lovely centerpiece of salvaged craftsmanship, repurposed as wearable art.

This mask is made entirely by me, entirely by hand. Leather, clock parts, acrylic paint, ingenuity and love.

Available right now at my online shop, here ---> [link]

This needs to be worn with a tuxedo and leather gloves. And maybe a Tommygun. ;)

I feel like there needs to be a movie about a costume party with maybe a little murder mystery now JUST for a reason to see a bunch of your super awesome masks all being used in one room

I love the colors of the mask with the bright back thrust of color. Very nice and eye-catching!

I also enjoy the metal and clockwork pieces/style. Completely awesome!

Am I the only person that thinks it looks like the masks from the splicers on Bioshock? It's a very lovely piece! I looked at it and thought it was Bioshock related though xD

The color is magnificent. It's complimentary to the concept, and still very warm, regardless of being a "cold" color. You reticently work your magic over and over again!!!

Thank you. :) I used a very "soft" neutral gray on this one, and I think the brass cogs in the watch movement pick that up too.
