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 :)

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 :)

Thanks, I'm glad you think so! :aww:
Well I imagined it a little different, but had to make it simpler because you can't do much with these feathers, they're very hard to work with :/

I finished also a white one a few days ago: [link]

Nice work. Try to find some ostrich's feathers. They come in all sizes.

Thanks :)
Obtaining any kind of quality feathers in my country is impossible, so I'd have to get them from US... but I keep putting it off because the shipping prices are usually higher than the package itself.

Mmm...Well, wish you luck. In my country I got them for free from a person who had a farm of ostrichs and sold their meat. Try to find someone like that not too far from your country.

Mnogo je dobra. Podseca malo na doktora Kugu, ali njegov kljun je bio mnogo veci.

Hvala :)
Ma dobro ima raznih tipova kljunatih maski, doktor za kugu je dosta specifičan :)
Radim na istoj ovakvoj samo bijeloj, ta će pak još više na njega podsjećati :P
