So here's attempt #1 at a top-hat it looks better then in the picture I promise. How ever the leather I used was very thin so it doesn't have a lot of body to it. It has a kind of crooked disreputable look to it. Every attempt is a learning experience.…Continue

My mask it pretty much done, I just have to fit the straps and probably pad the nose piece. I make at two more straps for show.

*(From over the hill comes the beating clank and hiss of Rev.Hammers Immense Steam Driven Portable Cathedral and Patent Medicine Side Show. The air brakes apply with a grunt and it shudders to a stop. From somewhere in the back of the machine a pipe organ suddenly blares to life as the 2 story tall oak front doors creak open. A heavy velvet curtain is revealed. There comes a burst of acrid smoke…Continue
