Real Eye Wolf 2 by merimask Real Eye Wolf 2 by merimask
 

My second “Real Eye Wolf”…this one is brown with steely blue eyes.  The second mask was easier to make (I worked out a few kinks on the first one).  I love this effect!


The mask is hand carved leather.  The eyes are custom made acrylic, created just for this mask.

Oh wow! I feel like this mask was made for me! It's the perfect color, the eyes are beautiful. If only payday wasn't a week away, I'd buy it this minute!

a suggestion!

you could try spacing the eyes out and putting buckram over tear shaped holes to make it look even more realistic u v u
the holes would go next to the eyes to look like real wolf eyes

Tried it.  Doesn't work.  My masks aren't "furry"-type hoods that go over your head.  Those masks are large, and shaped like an actual animal's head, and have long forward-jutting snouts that allow plenty of extra room for tear ducts that are big enough to allow a mesh panel you can see through.

My masks are shaped like a human face, and are flat in front like any other half-mask.  There's no room for large tear ducts, and no room to move the eyes far apart (I tried it and it looks strange). 

So instead I have customized eyes, and you can see right through them just fine, not unlike a traditional kitsune mask with pinhole eye openings.  It's a bit restricted but it works, and it keeps the mask looking natural.  :)
