For those of you who like to do things yourself, I’ve got some new paint-you-own-leather-mask listings up on Etsy. Leather masks are surprisingly simple to make from vegetable tanned leather. However, if you only need one mask, its hardly worth the large investment of your time and money to track down a good piece of leather, draft a pattern, cut it out, punch holes, and wet form it, just so you can have a custom mask that may or may not turn out the way you like.

Instead, I’ve done the hard part for you with these masks by purchasing the leather in bulk, and completing all of the special tooling and prep-work which requires specialty equipment. All that’s left for you to do is design and decorate the mask of your dreams!

I have two styles of do-it-yourself masks available right now; the ever popular Super Villain Mask, and the stunning Sprite Mask. Both patterns were hand-drafted myself and are not available elsewhere. These masks are ready to paint! They readily accept acrylics, oil-paints, glue, glitter, varnishes, matte and gloss mediums, and just about anything else you can think of thanks to their smooth yet porous surface.

So what are you waiting for? Any design you can imagine is possible!

Do you guys love Halloween? If you’re here because you like Cosplay, like I do, then you probably like Halloween. What’s not to love? It’s a day when the rest of the world shares in the hobby which you practice year round, and a day to really show off your skills to the general public. A day where instead of getting weird and dirty looks for walking down the street in your homemade Startwars costumes and oversized skirts, you are applauded for your originality and meticulous planning. Anyway I digress.

I wanted to tell you about a new line of Halloween themed accessories available in my Etsy store. Now, I know what you’re thinking, “Why is she trying to sell us things? That’s annoying! I can make my costume stuff myself!” Well, some of you don’t make your own costume things, and even if you do, we may not work in the same mediums or have the same skills. I’m not trying to sell you something for cosplay so much as help you display your love of Halloween in a new and original way, if you desire to do so! Plus my Halloween items are really cheap! Like, $5-$20 cheap.

I make accessories and themed jewelry out of vegetable tanned leather. This stuff is really durable, and the paint and sealant I use is waterproof and color fast, so these items are going to last a long time. I have lots of fun and colorful jewelry featuring Jack-o-lanterns, and candy corns. But I also have some great super hero masks if you do need to finish off a cosplay but can’t find the right mask to do so with. These items also make great gifts for Children, or a standout accessory for that super colorful Halloween party at the end of the month.

Each of these items are hand made a one of a kind. If you like the dress up, stand out from the crowd, and have custom made accessories that no one else on the planet has, then I invite you to take a look at my shop, and snatch these items before they are gone.
