Icarus is a steampunk plague doctor mask designed originally for performers. The mouth is left uncovered so that the wearer can sing freely (or eat and drink).
It is made of 4-5 and 5-6 oz vegetable tanned leather, all top grain cowhide. The mask leather has been painted black. The straps are adjustable by means of three buckles, and the mask will fit a head between a small 21" all the way up to an extra large 24".
The beak and eyepieces were designed and fabricated by Tom, then cast in cold cast aluminum. They have been polished which brings out the bas relief pattern embellishing them.
The mask is all handstitched with waxed thread. The straps are riveted to the mask. The beak is held on with nine machine screws, and the eyepieces are held on using wire. The headband strap has a large piece of foam on the front that goes against the forehead for comfort.
The lenses are like dark glasses, and made of 1/8" acrylic. The wearer can look out easily (even in interior lighting), yet no one can look in. The entire mask weighs just 363 gm (less than 13 oz) and is comfortable to wear. The beak was cast hollow so that it is lightweight. The bottom of the beak is just as elaborately embellished as are the sides, plus there are five additional vent holes.

    Absolutely gorgeous! Great quality and looks extremely expensive. I can’t wait to wear this for a ball we were invited to.

    From the time I’ve had to look at it considering it was shipped to my place of work, I love it. The mask and hat looks absolutely amazing. I didn’t have much time to look at anything else, but I’m sure I’ll love it just as much

    After purchasing a hat, this mantle was the last major piece I needed to add that extra something. The combination of the two really brings together the costume.

    The mantle is very well made, and communication from the seller was very fast and helpful. Shipping was fast. I couldn’t be happier with the entire process and product

    I have been searching for a hat like this, without exaggerating, for around 5 years. And I can happily say that it had been worth the search. Combined with the mantle, my plague doctor costume is almost complete. Numerous attendees at my local renaissance festival asked for pictures and/or gave me compliments on how well it all looks together. I’m super happy with the addition of these two pieces.

    Shipping was very quick, and the work is very well done.
