So, I know what you are thinking... wouldn't it be awesome if there were masks based on MCR's guitars/bass/microphone, right? RIGHT? It's like I'm psychic! BEHOLD MY POWERS!

And if that happened, they might look like this!

Tee hee. Kinda cute, right?! Well, I think so. :D What do you think???

[Poll #1810318]

~More comparison pictures ~
Pansy - Frank's beloved baby
This mask has a white base, black and silver "PANSY" that sparkles, the two gold "pick ups", and the four silver knobs. There is a black boarder just like the real Pansy. I feel that Frank would approve.


Sparklebass - Mikey's silver bass
This one's quite simple. The base is silver with a silver glittery layer on top. The racing stripes and pick guard are replicated to the best of my ability. Yes, I changed the angles and such, but I think it really works. This one looks quite "Killjoy" and I so love how it came out!


Les Paul - Ray's trusty guitar
I know Ray has a lot of guitars, but I just love this one. I love the colors and how it fades into such a dark black, but just on the edges. This one is most like the actual guitar with pickups, knobs, pick guard… everything! It's kinda special.


Party Poison Microphone - Gerard's wonderful and shiny mic
I probably took the most liberties with this one. It's yellow and pink with black accents, though so... score? It's super sparkly and also on the "Killjoy" spectrum. \o/


All my masks are hand shaped out of 8 oz vegetable tanned leather and painted with acrylics. There is an elastic cord that easily ties off for quick adjustments.

Today is the most awesome of days - MORE JOY DAY! ! The always delightful [ profile] sdwolfpup started this up five years ago. It's all about being nice and spreading joy. \o/ Huzzah! \o/

Now is when things get fun. One of these masks could be YOURS! And it could be in your hands in less than a week for FREE. (Well, maybe two if it's going overseas) All because I love you, lovely LJ peeps. :D :D :D *hugs*

Here is how this is going to work. You are going to leave me a comment that says "I'm in" and then tell me which is your favorite. You don't have to be on my f-list or anything. If having one of these masks will make you smile, then I'm a happy camper. On Sunday afternoon, I'll pick a winner (or two or three… haven't decided yet) out of a hat. (Yes, I'm literally going to write your names down and put them in a hat. High-tech stuff going on over here.) If I pick you and your mask is still sitting here, it's yours! I'll PM you to get your address and it should be 3-6 days (within the US) and 6-10 days (international).

I hope everyone has a very joyous and spectacular day! :D *smish*

Awesome! I've got your name down.

I could! I did a set of them for the boys and the my Frank "Fun Ghoul" mask was roughly based off the gun. Those were actually super fun to make! :D

Oooh, I don't remember seeing those; so pretty!!

Well, then I don't have any more suggestions. Unless you want to start working on PatD.... LOL!

So cool! And beautiful! I am hesitant because I ALREADY am the joyous recipient of a free beautiful mask from you and I don't want to hog the joy BUT y'know, I do really love that Party Poison one o____________________o

Nah! One can NEVER have too many masks. Well, except me. I don't even know how many I've got sitting around here. O_o

But! I've got you down for the PP mic, my dear! :D

:D Thanks, my dear!

No worries. I keep looking out for another sturdy material so I have an alternative to leather. Thanks for the kind words, though!

I'd definitely go for an alternative to leather, if you could find one. I'm not a philosophical vegan, it's true, but you can't be any kind of vegan for close to two years and not feel a bit befuddled by leather. :)

I've been looking for an alternative since I started working with leather, but I just can't seem to find something that works the same way. All the fabrics that I've tried won't hold their shape, resin has no give, plastic cracks so easily, and paper mache is so fragile and I don't think it would hold up to the weather. :(

Maybe someday I'll find the perfect medium, though!

I'm in! I'm in! [waves hand up in the air frantically] I'm not even going to be noble and let someone else have a chance, I AM ALL OF THE INS. THERE ARE NO INS LEFT FOR ANYONE ELSE. [giggles]

My favorite is probably Mikey's, but I'm actually quite stricken by how much I love the Ray one. I mean, Mikey = bass = ALL MY HEARTS. But Ray's one is just incredible, and I love how detailed it is, with the sunbursts and pickguards and pickups. Love them!

Thank you SO MUCH! I've got you down, my dear... no worries! (You can put your hands down... I'm sure they are tired!!!)

Awww... I'm so glad you like Ray's. His was the last one I did and I wasn't sure it would come out, but I'm pretty pleased with it. :D

hey - I am interested in buying a mask from you for a kinky masquerade thing in February. I don't have an etsy account yet though, so I can't message you there. Wanna shoot me an email and we can talk things through and see if you can help me out?

Sure thing! I'll send you an email and we can work out details! :D

Here via Night's link and omgggggg I want Ray's Les Paul mask *_____________* I can (and would) display it with Raygun Jones and Jet Star's mask. :DDDDDDDDDD

(I mean, they're all fantastic, but the Les Paulllllllll *___________*)

Yay! I'm SO GALD you like 'em! :D

I've got your name down and will let you know if I pick your name. \o/

Randomly, Ray's was the last one I did and I was so worried his wouldn't turn out okay. It's so much more technical and I didn't think it would work, ya know? So... GLAD YOU LIKE IT! \o/

Awwww... all the icons. :(
