Industrial Anubis, version 8, up close.
Last time I made an Industrial Anubis, I asked this question:
"...how does it look with a goggle/monocle? The answer is; it looks like a cross between a badass robotic Anubis and a mad scientist intent on ruling the world."
Well, if that is true, then I think a goggle/monocle with ~two~ 5X magnification loupes is even more badass. One more badass. That is to say:
Nigel Tufnel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and...
Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?
Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.
Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?
Nigel Tufnel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?
Marty DiBergi: I don't know.
Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.
Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.
Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?
Nigel Tufnel: [pause] These go to eleven.
Thusly, this mask goes to eleven.
Sort of a blend of traditional Egyptian motifs with industrial design elements, made from one piece of 8oz leather, hand carved & shaped without molds or forms, then dyed & painted with colorfast acrylics in bright gold and black. Then I augmented and decorated it with real brass clock parts and one cup of a juiced-up welder's goggle that I modified myself.
