Sea Otter Mask by merimask Sea Otter Mask by merimask
How many people make otter masks? Not just any otters...sea otters! Well, not very many I bet. ;-)

This is my sea otter mask. Like everything I make, it's hand carved from 8oz veg-tanned leather, hand shaped, and painted with Liquitex acrylics. I had fun carving all those tiny hairs. No, really, I did. I like the details.

This little guy is available in my Etsy shop right now. All you need to complete the costume is a sea urchin you can eat on your belly... [link]

Otter! My wife's kindred spirit. Intelligent, creative, playful and silly. And absolutely ADD. :D

Ever seen a whistling water otter? [link] Go see!

...

It makes the water 'otter and it whistles! ;)

It's so cute, they are cute creatures. It's true there aren't many sea otter masks, you're the first I've seen of them. It'd look adorable on a kid. :D

Sea otters are adorable, and you certainly pulled that off here. The nose is just perfect. :XD:

Now all the wearer has to do is learn how to swim on their back and eat their dinner on their belly.
