With skin made from a vintage silverplated platter, and antlers gifted to me by a friend and kept in waiting until this very moment, King of the Moonlit Forests is one of my all time most majestic masks. His antlers are drilled and mounted with a special plate from behind, so he is just as strong as he looks. He comes with a custom made wall mount that, frankly, also looks pretty great on its own (forging the steel bracket, cleaning and coating the skull, and woodwork were also done by our metalsmith, because variety is good) . I'm gonna be honest with you; I will probably never make another of the silver platter masks with integrated antlers like this. It worked. It is glorious. But it was so very time consuming. King of the Moonlit Forests is just one of those masks that only happen once
King of the Moonlit Forests -is- heavier than many of our masks. The weight balances well on top of the head, and so he is still quite comfortable for all night wear, but unlike our smaller masks, you will probably not forget you are wearing him.
The wonder of a copper mask is in the strength and give of the material. Because it is so strong, the mask can be very thin- this makes it both very light, and makes it possible to fit as a second skin. These won't block your peripheral vision the way a leather. paper maiche, or plastic mask would. They can be very comfortably worn all day and night- no worries about sweat or rain causing them to soften and lose their shape. Rinse it with clean water at the end of the night before putting it away. They can stand up to anything you throw at them. As for packing? Throw it in your bag. If you're checking the bag, maybe stuff a balled up pair of socks where your forehead would go. Easy.
Not planning to wear your mask? He or she won't mind. They can hang flat against a wall, or sit on a shelf.
