Full-size Plague Doctor Mask

I’ve been seeing so many plague masks around here that it inspired me to bust out the pattern I got some time ago from DieselpunkRo

Items Needed:

  • ability to convert a pdf pattern to SVG
  • all the veg tanned leather
  • so much black dye
  • miles of waxed cotton cord
  • a cool coat ( I didn’t have one)
  • millions of rivets, snaps, buckles
  • 5 to 6 hours
  • patience
  • a new manicure

This is after lots of scrubbing with soap, nail polish remover, etc.

Good thing I’m working from home for the foreseeable future!

I think it is great. One summer I worked at a factory doing spot welds on tool boxes. Sheet metal work. My fingers were black from the sparks. All my shirts had holes in them. My glasses had spark marks. I was quite proud of the calluses that developed. It was about six months before they all disappeared. Beauty of another kind.

Yes, totally agree.

Wow, great job! Not only is it visually stunning, but I’m guessing it would be pretty effective in today’s plague. Maybe not in keeping it out, but certainly in keeping it in.

That looks so cool. I really don’t want to get into leather work for these though, but I’m sorely tempted :smiley:

AWESOME! I really need to make one of these to go out to the store in, just for the laughs and strange looks I would get from other people. LOL
