Ladies and Gents! May I present to you my fine collection of masks and  odd gadgets from the past, present and future! Today, I'd like to focus one of my favorite masks. This well known mask was made popular during the medieval ages. The mask made was called the Plague Doctor's Mask which was given to the physicians at the time to protect them from the Bubonic Plague that took many lives. What I have made today is my version of the Plague Doctor's mask re-imagined to fit the steampunk, cyber apocalyptic world! Be the first to get this before X-Mas! This mask will be the best unique gift to yourself or someone very special.

Why is this mask this price? Well, let me tell you..it's not as easy as it looks. Each mask takes 2+ hours to complete. The mask is made out of leather, industrial grade rubber and hard plastic. The tinted lenses are made from real glass. All hand crafted and painted with 5-6 individual layers of paint by yours truly making each and every mask unique from one another. I sew, cut and assemble all hardware by hand.  All pledges also includes shipping cost (with the exception of additional mandatory postage to ship internationally). The time and materials alone cost more than what I offer it for. Why? because I love it, simply put.  I love what I do and I want to make more masks and other oddities :) Right now, what I have here is a prototype. The mask is about 90% done. It needs a bit more adjusting to get all the materials securely in place then we are ready to gear up! 

My goal is to make quality masks at an affordable price. Let's face it, most leather and resin made masks can go up to the $1000s even millions if it was made in the middle ages! Most of us can only imagine what it feels like to own one. My dream is to bring these designs to life with my own twist and at an economical cost for everyone.

I was born to a family of Artists. My dad was a painter and my mom was a ceramist. All of the toys I ever had as a child were either entirely made by my Dad, Mom or with my own two hands. There's nothing more enjoyable than puzzling pieces together and making unique thingamajigs out of it! This love for building and creating carried into my adulthood. For over 10 years, I've worked in the entertainment industry doing everything from production work to now directing. My passion has always been in costume fabrication. Last year, I started a small business called Dr. Sharp's Steampunk Gear www.drsharpsteampunk.com to show some of my work and have maintained a 5 star rating all over the world :) Here's what some of my customers have said about my products,

 "This Is probably the coolest thing I have gotten off of etsy in a long time. I absolutely love it! It helps me be super quiet and scare my friends in the dark when they don't know where the lights are coming from." Jordyn I. 

"Absolutely love it. It's perfect for my Steampunk Robot costume I'm making. Fast ship too. A++++++" Lauri J.

"Exceeded expectations and lovin' it" Ramsey W.

These are just a few of the feedback I have received within the past year.  I have a lot of ideas I want to bring to life! and hope to turn my dreams into reality!

This version of the Dr. Sharp's Plague mask will be exclusive to my brand only. Which means you will own a uniquely designed mask not seen anywhere else in the world!

Risks and challenges

I hold very high standards to my work and take into consideration to every detail. The idea is to have all masks shipped out before Christmas which will depend on how many backers I have, but I'm fully prepared for the challenge. I will keep everyone updated with the latest progress!
