Black bird venetian mask by MissAnnThropia Black bird venetian mask by MissAnnThropia
Handmade plaster venetian mask with black velvet, black feathers and beak. It's my first completed mask, I wore it during this year's Carnival party. You can see me wearing it :)
Not really satisfied with the overall fluffiness, but these were the only feathers I could find.

See also a white version of the mask.

I love the nose part. I would buy it if it had a little more feather standing straight up. It would totally fit my raven themed costume.

Thank you, I'm glad you like it :) Though, this mask is not for sale anyway.

This is gorgeous. I love the shiny lacquered look to the beak and oddly enough the sequins really embellish the mask. Well done!

Thank you! :aww:
Sequins, that's the name for it! :D I seriously had no idea how it's called in English, actually I don't know what it's called in my language either :lol:
They provide a bit of gleam to highlight the contours of the mask, since the velvety surface swallows all the light in dimmed places where I wore it :)

Thank you! :love: It's still my favourite one to wear, although it's the heaviest one.

Great shape, it really reminds me of some of the masks that can be seen in the Venetian Carnival! You said you're not too happy with the feathers, but I think they don't look that bad! They works fine :)
