Steampunk Mask by Navare Steampunk Mask by Navare
Here it is... I actually completed this a good while ago, but was too lazy to put it up :)

It's about 17cm across, 23cm deep, and 16cm tall, and it fits me perfectly. The base is five or six layers of plaster cloth (which were laid directly on my face, thanks to my sister xD), and all the rest is sewed/riveted onto that.

Also, the plaster cloth was the only part that was bought for this mask. The rest is all recycled stuff I happened to have around the house.

This took forever to make, but I think it was definitely worth it. Now I just need to find a place to wear it to....
I drew inspiration from goodness knows how many pieces of steampunk paintings/drawings/costumes. So thanks to everyone who makes pretty and inspirational art ;)

hope you like it as much as I do ^^

Thats really cool - I like how its steampunk feel comes from the kind of cobbled together style. It seems really kinda authentic to the genre and it looks great in a post-apocalyptic kind of way as well.

Thanks!
I didnt't exactly have a big budget, and all you need to do is root around in some recycling cans to find them, so- perfect solution! :)
