Halloween Plague Doctor Mask

I made a Plague Doctor mask for Halloween. I made it for myself, but as soon as my son saw it, he high-jacked it for his own Halloween party.

It was made using this pattern:

The pattern and accompanying video were great! Well worth their price.

I used the GF to cut all the cork fabric I used (it’s Cork Fabric that @Rebecca used for her wallet)

My son wore it to a Halloween party on the weekend, and made one little kid cry. So … mission accomplished … I guess?


I like your deceptively cheerful color scheme. :slight_smile:


Both you and your son have great taste!!! What a wonderful mask. I actually have that very mask pattern sitting in a wish list :slightly_smiling_face:


Just so you know, it took me about 6 hours of stitching to hand stitch it.


Very cool

Zero stitching, zero leather, definitely a step down in cool over the proper version you made… but also no 6 hours of stitching, either.


Thank you for the warning. It takes me about 2.5-3 hours to stitch the executive wallet in the Glowforge catalog.

Pretty amazing job! It totally looks like leather.


Oh cool…I thought it was leather too. Very spookaaay!


I love the look of this fabric. I find it has a very leathery texture to it, but it’s much lighter. It’s also thinner.

The wallet I made from it is very light and thin, which is what I like for wallets.

I just wish it came in more colors…

Have you tried any kind of color treatments on the natural cork version? Will it take paint or leather dye?

I have not tried any finish on it at all. I only ordered the yellow and red to test things out, and I’m almost out of it. I’m probably going to order other colors soon, since I like it so much. Although I don’t have any other projects in mind yet.

I also have not tested if I can engrave on it at all. That’s going to be one of my next tests.

Love the geometric objects in the background of the second photo!!!


Those are my giant laser-cut gears. You can see a better picture here:

And a video on youtube here:

Those were made on a laser-cutter, but not a GF. I made those before getting the GF.


Nice mask!

You know, but others may not, that the Plague Doctor has been a point of interest here since the start of the forum.


Your creations are AMAZING!!! Thank you for sharing!!!


Well done!
