5 out of 5 stars (61)

Announcement   My shop is open, but we have a limited number of masks available for the spring season.
All orders will be shipped from a fulfillment center in Michigan with excellent standards.

I will be traveling abroad for a few months, to study mask making traditions in other countries. When I get back in July, I will have a lot more ideas and techniques and some good inspiration to get started on an amazing line of Halloween masks.

Meanwhile, please choose from the masks we have available, and I can start doing custom orders for your movie, photo shoot, or costume party again in July. I will not be doing any custom orders or commissions until the end of July.

I make Masks, Headdresses and Costumes in lots of styles: Creepy Masks, Animal Masks, Cajun Mardi Gras Masks and Costumes, Fantasy Headdresses, Pagan and Fairy Crowns, Theater Masks, Burlesque, Carnival and Vintage Style Headpieces.
I make masks for movies, independent films, music videos, television, and also for costume parties, masquerades, and other fun times.
I do custom work, and have a great selection of ready to wear - ready to ship pieces.

You get FREE FIRST CLASS SHIPPING to the U.S. via U.S.P.S. on smaller size packages.

I have several decades of experience designing and making
• masks, using a variety of techniques, for film, TV, and theater.
• headdresses for theater & stage, ritual, and events,
• costumes, props and sets for theater, film, photography.

Over time, I've honed my skills, mastered the materials, and found my own quirky style.
I'm known for looking at the everyday world through my own lens, re-imagining things in a more creative, and playful, way.

No two pieces that I create are ever exactly the same: I seek the soul of a piece, feeling my way into a vision of what needs to be in our world.
However - to ensure uniformity, and that your mask looks as similar to those in the photos as possible, ~ my Owl Masks, Creepy Rabbit Masks, Scary Rabbit Masks, and Evil Clown masks are all made on a template.
There are slight variations due to the nature of the materials, but they will be as similar as possible to those seen in the photos.
For the cast rabbits, they are also made the same way every time, and the variation is in painting and materials.

I make custom masks. I can make your mask to order, and I do artistic license masks. These masks take about two days to three days to design and create. I can do cute, creepy, cartoonish, and I especially love to imagine animals in human clothes.

I make custom headdresses. I can work with your choice of colors, and your other ideas. The headdresses take about two to three days to design and create.

To order a Custom piece, Please Choose "custom" and send me a Conversation so we can discuss your ideas.

Everything in my shop is made in a pet free and smoke free studio.
I do use feathers now and then, but keep them in a special area in the studio to avoid allergy issues.

If you need your mask ASAP let me know - and select the "priority shipping" option with your order. I'll be splitting the cost with you.

Here in Alaska, I live in a mostly undeveloped environment, close to nature and the animals that inspire me. The wilderness and wild animals that surround me are a never-ending source of inspiration, and pleasure.
Because I care deeply about my environment and surroundings, in accordance with the ancient traditions of my people, I am committed to using recycled, or up-cycled materials at every opportunity to minimize the impact my work and projects have on the environment we share, while bringing the maximum pleasure and joy into our world.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my work, and whether you buy something from me or not, I value your commitment to supporting artists who make things by hand.

About

Transform yourself with a mask, headdress or costume! I love doing custom work.

The shop is open, but we have a limited number of items available, and custom orders and commissions are closed until the end of July.
I am taking a much needed health break, and doing some travel to study other mask making traditions of the world.
I will return rested and inspired at the end of July, and we can talk about your ideas for custom masks and headdresses at that time.
Meanwhile, please choose from some of the masks available.
I have chosen a fantastic fulfillment company to package and ship orders, they ship same day or next day from Michigan, so you should be getting your orders even faster than usual.
Thanks~

I love making stuff. Designing and making! I've been creative all of my life, even when I didn't have access to new materials, so I've gotten really good at
using as many up-cycled and recycled materials as possible.

I love the thrill of taking a common item, and imagining new uses for it. For me, that tends toward "something to put on your head!". Yes, I'm a little strange. But we all are at least a little.

No two pieces I create are ever going to be identical -
However - to ensure uniformity, and that your mask looks as similar to those in the photos as possible, ~ my Owl Masks, Creepy Rabbit Masks, Scary Rabbit Masks, and Evil Clown masks are all made on a template.
There are slight variations due to the nature of the materials, but unless you ask for a custom variation, they will be as similar as possible to those seen in the photos.
For the cast rabbits, they are also made the same way every time, the variations are in painting and materials.

I seek the soul of the piece. The world around me seems to fade, and become electric, and full of the possible at the same time. I've honed this skill, finding my way into and out of the creative space quickly, bringing those inspirations back with me into the everyday world.

I think my friends would agree that I'm known for looking at the everyday world through my own lens, re-imagining common things in a more creative, and playful, way.
And now, because of Etsy, you can take advantage of my skills in a way that wasn't possible 'before the internet'.
How cool!

I make custom masks. I can make your mask to order, and I do artistic license masks. These masks take about two days to design and create. I can do cute, creepy, cartoonish, and I especially love to imagine animals in human clothes. Tell me what you want, and we'll work out a design you will love!

I make custom headdresses. I can work with your choice of colors, and your other ideas. The headdresses take about a day to design and create.

I like doing my creative work more than sitting at the computer, so sometimes my website, and updates don't happen as often as they should -- though I do have notifications set to alert me when someone has a question, wants to order something, and other important events. I usually respond within a few hours.
But when I'm not at the computer I am probably making stuff.

Everything in my shop is made in a pet free and smoke free studio.
I do use feathers now and then, but keep them in a special area in the studio to avoid allergy issues.

I have decided to offer free first class shipping to the U.S. via U.S.P.S. on smaller size packages.
If you are ordering one or more masks, or headdresses, and your order fits within the size restrictions I will cover the shipping charges for Standard First Class USPS mail.
The Post Office doesn't give me a good enough rate on larger packages to offer that on bigger pieces, unfortunately, or on fast delivery. If you need your mask ASAP let me know - and I'll see what we can do. In most cases I usually have covered a portion of the shipping costs myself.

Here in Alaska, I live in a mostly undeveloped environment, close to nature and the animals that inspire me. I love watching eagles and ravens, magpies and crows.
I love our foxes, owl, bear, and wolf. Fish are also important to me, and often appear in my paintings and in my dreams. The wilderness and wild animals that surround me are a never-ending source of inspiration, and pleasure.

Because I care deeply about my environment and surroundings, in accordance with the ancient traditions of my people, I am committed to using recycled, or up-cycled materials at every opportunity to minimize the impact my work and projects have on the environment we share, while bringing the maximum pleasure and joy into our world.

Find out what i'm up to at https://crooked-crow.squarespace.com/ i do update the website occasionally, usually in the middle of the night when I'm too tired to work on my other projects. Or find my blog
https://crooked-crow.squarespace.com/blog
Where I've just started learning how to update that with more than a word or two and a photo now and then.
Have look at past work and projects on my site in the Gallery of Masks,

    I make headdresses, masks and costumes. If you can dream it, I can build it. I make giant monsters and puppets to charm or terrify your friends and neighbors, and tiny half-masks to transform yourself.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Shop closed for commissions and custom orders until the end of July.
Please be ready to give me as much information as you can about what you want in your custom order. Photos or artwork, good written descriptions of the project will all work. We'll need to discuss materials, time, cost, durability and other things related to your costume, puppet, or mask.

Sizing details

No two pieces I create are ever going to be identical -
However - to ensure uniformity, and that your mask looks as similar to those in the photos as possible, ~ my Owl Masks, Creepy Rabbit Masks, Scary Rabbit Masks, and Evil Clown masks are all made on a template.
There are slight variations due to the nature of the materials, but unless you ask for a custom variation, they will be as similar as possible to those seen in the photos.
For the cast rabbits, they are also made the same way every time, the variations are in painting and materials.

Care instructions

Your mask will be sealed for water-resistance, but it is not water-proof. If your mask gets wet, gently blot it dry, then block it into shape while it dries.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I can do gift wrapping and packaging, but I will be using all recycled packaging materials.
I can include a personalized card, tho. :)

Wholesale availability

I will give rates on bulk orders, for movie and TV, please message me for details.

Can you add teeth?

Yes, I can do some free customization on any mask - want teeth? want creepier painting? Send me a message. :)
