Peeping Tom Monocle Cat Mask by merimask Peeping Tom Monocle Cat Mask by merimask
Yes, I know...another "steampunk" animal mask. But I can't help it. I'm just feeling all inspired by this theme. :)

Here's a snappy black and white kitty mask with a "cog-monocle" eye...I had too much fun customizing this one with parts from a broken clock I dismantled. The lens is a orange/amber color (perfect for a black and white kitty...though green would be great too!).

After I finished him, he still didn't feel "done" to me, so I added realistic-looking whiskers made of hand-knotted silver nylon beading wire. That stuff is textured almost like real cat whiskers...kinda neat!

Made of leather, goggle parts, clock parts, cogs, chrome and nickle fittings, nylon wire, and love.

This guy is signed, dated and numbered (version #1) and in my shop (until he's gone!) here: [link]

This looks really awesome, I'd probably buy it just to hang on my wall but it would probably be more use to someone who wants it for a better reason XD plus I really need to stop throwing money down on stuff I don't really need XD

Anyways, great work :) really enjoying your gallery

Thanks! Yeah I thought my designs were getting a bit predictable so augmenting them with clock & goggle parts kind of makes them something new.

Thanks. It's brand new so no pics yet of it being worn, but on my main page under the blue cat; links to a massive photo gallery of just about everything else on people, including the regular cat without goggle part.

Yeah wow! The last few "goggle" masks have all gotten huge hits. It's pretty amazing & flattering, but lots of work monitoring spam and silliness... I usually don't have the time for this DA stuff because of that.

Still...nice that most folks seem to like it. :)

Thanks...yeah I actually added a carved leather side panel to the goggle cup & tooled it & painted it with a silver edge to go with the black silver white theme.

I agree...something about them makes the mask seem either formal or rakish.

My cat is not dignified either, I fear. Frankly I prefer dogs because they don't do disturbing stuff like that.
