This shop went above and beyond for me. When I received my mask, it was too small for me. They were more than happy to custom make a mask that would fit my face at no additional cost. They also offered me so many different ways I could customize it, and kept me updated on the progress. 10/10 would buy again!

Perfect mask for this Halloween costume! Mask is well made and fits perfectly. It arrived fast to my doorstep, so I didn't have to think of a plan-B for Halloween.

Why I'm a stuff maker:
In 2012 I was gifted my first leathercraft kit, and we've been having quite the love affair since. I had been making decorative masks in clay for years, but now I could do wearable! People have responded so well, and it's only going to get better! In Dec of 2012 a commercial for Lise Watier started circulating with the model wearing a mask I created for her and the project, this is super exciting and hopefully the start of something bigger and better.
and why? because in 2009 I suffered a serious spine injury, i can no longer work at my "real" job, I can no longer drive, I have cronic pain and problems with mobility. Working from home has allowed me to connect with fellow artists and creators, help out my family financially and keep my body safe. I'm so thankful I had this opportunity.

Frequently asked questions
Check our images for a diagram on how to measure. Each listing should contain measurements for that particular item. If you need a slight variation (eyes set closer or further apart) that is no issue! Just message us beforehand so we can customize your mask for you!
For leather items:
Avoid water, especially with the larger masks.
Soaking your item will remove most of the sculpting and may result in shrinking and hardening of the leather. Masks and cuffs are lined with felt to absorb sweat and a light coating of water resistant spray is added to large masks. It is fine to use a very lightly dampened cloth to clean your mask if necessary.
For polymer clay items:
Avoid spraying item with perfumes or hairspray as this can result in the piece becoming sticky. Clean with a damp cloth as needed.
Custom and personalized orders
We are no longer able to offer full customization. That being said, any mask or other item can be customized with your choice of colour, hardware, and slight sizing adjustments (eye spacing, width) as needed. Just contact us before purchasing and we'll be delighted to help!

What about Halloween orders?
Halloween is the busiest season of the year and wait times may go up. We highly recommend ordering in September to be safe, but we take orders for in stock items up until October 20th or so for shipping to Canada and the USA.
Rush shipping is available but usually costs more than the item itself, this is out of our control.
Orders outside of Canada/USA should message us for options, most overseas orders can take 20+ business days to arrive.
To prevent any issues or delays, please make sure you've measured carefully :) sizes are in descriptions and measuring diagram is in the photos.
Packaging and shipping costs
Whenever possible, we reuse packaging to save you money. Even if we have to use new materials, the price doesn’t change, and we don’t charge any handling fees.
Occasionally shipping an item will cost a few dollars less less than you’ve paid, at this point we refund overages.
For overseas, Mexico, central and South America we prefer using a courier. This may take extra time to ship (its nearly an hour trip for us) but usually includes insurance and tracking for our customers and an affordable rate. Please message us before purchase for a quote :)
