Did not receive this mask. Got a gold mask with a drape cloth attached instead, Don;t know how to undo this. What a ripoff. Never again.

What a fantastic addition to my collection. I can not recommend them highly enough. I have a nice Thrones collection. This is certainly one of the top items in it. The item also arrived in less than 2 weeks. I highly recommend this seller.

I finally hold it myself and it's beautiful. I recommend this shop to anyone who loves masks. As far as delivery goes, the seller sent the package perfectly on schedule and was very cooperative when there were a few hickups with DHL. 4/4, would buy again.

Fantastic, this mask is just FANTASTIC!f I really don't know where to begin to review this properly. Just look at it! The reproduction of A Trip to the Moon / Le Voyage dans la Lune (1902) is nothing short of spectacular. I've said it once and I will say it again, and again the two ladies at OnceUponAFreak know their craft inside out. This is stunning. Just Stunning. I absolutely love it, but who wouldn't Thank you so very much for this wonderful piece of art. Love it! Love it! Love IT!

Who said water and oil can't be mixed?
Once upon a time a smart engineer princess hung out with a mad geek artist.
Talking about decoration we realize we have opposite points of view:
'Are we going to hang up all this geek things in MY house?'
'Am I going to have all my TREASURIES jailed in boxes?'
'WHY nobody sells geek AND beautiful collectibles?'
So we decided to solve it. Cause there are lots of geek COF COF I mean, interesting people, that have the right of enjoy beautiful and smart things that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg just because they have a serial number.
We mixed our passions –venetian masks and geek things- and… ok, you can see the result now.
But in order to do really beautiful things we couldn’t buy industrial masks and paint it. We needed to do it by ourselves, cause that’s the only way to assure our masks will be perfect.
HOW WE MAKE OUR MASKS:
We sculpt our own masks in clay, take a mould of them and after we use this mould to ‘positive’ your mask in papier maché. Not paper paste, not vinyl, we do it the ancient Italian way. The name of this technique is ‘cartapesta’ and consists in putting several layers of little pieces of paper soaked up in glue until it take consistency. Once the mask become dry, we coat it with some layers of home-made gesso, sanding it between layer and layer in order to get the desired surface.
At last, we paint it, add cool ornament and varnish it.
This is a long process (a small mask takes at least 5 hours to be crafted without counting waiting times) made with love for hand-made lovers.
But a a look is worth a thousand words so… why tell you more?
Engineer, creative, fidget-arse, bookworm, Major Queen of the World. She loves little pretty things. Don't call her a 'geek', she thinks she isn't such thing. Maybe strange, she admites that. Sometimes.
Designer, sculptor. I like more a costume than Hagrid loves an strange egg. But not the crappy ones. I like those made with real things and planification. And here we are, making fantabolous things.
Due this, it could be sightly diferent by photos, specially those wich use its relief texture to simulate stains, leather texture, etc.
This way we make unique mask for each buyer.
