Red XIII Mask by merimask Red XIII Mask by merimask
Here's a mask done by special request; an interpretation of a character from Final Fantasy VII ; "Red XIII".

He's a sort of wolfish, lionish creature, so I made the mask kind of ambiguous as well. As ever, made from hand carved, hand shaped 8oz leather. Painted with Liquitex acrylics.

Custom orders like this one can be requested only at my online Etsy shop: [link] When making a mask based on a character in a video game or other media, be aware that I do my own interpretation and not a literal, exact copy. :-)

Hm, this, for some reason, didn't show up with the rest of the masks when you update, so I just saw it now. I don't know the character, but I think the mask looks great. I especially like that it's not quite brown, but not quite red either.

Instantly recognizable as Nanaki (at least, for the FF dorks among the masses!) What a great job!

This certainly is one cool mask. I half expect a black leather jacket and tight fitting jeans to come with this. Great job fleshing the character out, into your own none-the-less, in leather. Great Job as always!

That is amazing! I love your masks the best of times but adding Final fantasy into the mix is fantastic. You did a brilliant job of capturing him.

Red is one of my most favorite characters from the series. You've managed to capture his likeness while not really capturing it fully per say *wink wink*
I really like the subtle transition from the tan color to the red - such a great paint job!!

Hah, awesome! I'm a big FF7 fan myself, so definitely like this. Careful, though, fandoms start seeing things like this and you'll have so many orders that you'll have to forgo sleep to keep up. ;)

Thanks! Tricky critter to make because some describe it as a canine and some describe it as feline. I did it as a sort of long-faced lion.

I think that worked out great! Every time I play the game, he always looks like a lion that howls to me. I find it hard to see the canine features (maybe a bit in the body.) But you nailed it!
