My Finished Masquerade Mask.

After much messing about I decided to soak the mask again in a bucket of water and strap it on my head wet! I wore it whilst doing some research with the fan on me and it seems to have worked fine. It is heavy leather and I was getting pressure on my eyebrows. I work the leather with my thumbs before putting it on to try it, and today it was dry enough to do some final trimming.

Hi HM. Not exactly what I had in mind when I started, but for a first effort I can live with it. I think a lighter leather would work better, but I used what I have.
Thanks for your comment HM.
Regards, Le Loup.

Hello Le Loup,
Dick Turpin would have loved that one, great job my good man.

Thanks John. Probably a little heavier than the one Dick Turpin used, but it would provide some protection against sword cuts!
