River Gypsy Arts

Welcome to RiverGypsyArts!
A mask is a magical threshold, that lies between the known, and the hidden. To wear a mask, is to have the courage to be transformed; to look through mythological eyes, to feel the sun on ones back and gaze at the moon, to dance in the parting between sea and sand.

Making leather masks and other interesting items is something I find rewarding in many ways. Keeping the business part, personal, is what keeps it enjoyable! I prefer personal communication, rather than having policies carved in stone, so talk to me if you have questions or ideas...! This is a one human store, so I'm rather easy to find here, and pretty flexible most ways.
Welcome, and enjoy!

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Masks are generically sized to fit a range of face sizes and shapes. Since they are half-masks or eye-masks, there is no need to measure the face to fit a specific person. (Full face masks are far more difficult to fit to a specific person, without creating a replica of the persons face, on which to shape the mask.) However, if you feel that your face is unusually small or broad, or otherwise differently shaped, please contact me to talk about what you need in a custom mask for a better fit.

Are masks returnable?

LEATHER COSTUME MASKS ARE INTIMATE ITEMS, worn over the nose and mouth, and breathed through, and therefore NOT returnable after having been worn. I would never sell you a mask that someone has already worn, coughed in, etc.
Because of this, I cannot accept returns of masks, unless I hear from you within 3 days of receiving the mask, time enough to briefly try it on. In the case that the mask really won't work for you, it needs to be mailed back within 7 days of receiving it, (postal date of package delivery), and it MUST be in pristine, unworn condition to receive a refund of the original item price. You'll be responsible for return shipping costs.
