Respirator #4 with Canisters

Last month I started on respirator #4, then had to set it aside while I filled all the Halloween mask orders coming in.

I have at last had time to get back to it. I redesigned the ventilation holes, and constucted the canister, making it smaller than my previous respirator. Pictured above is the undyed leather mask and canister prototype.

Here is the respirator assembled (except for the straps) and dyed and antiqued. I'm hoping to be able to retail this piece for under $100.

Lois Lane: Dominatrix

More TV news. On the CW's Smallville (the story of a young Clark Kent), Erica Durance plays the role of Lois Lane. When Lois goes undercover as a dominatrix in order to get a story, she chooses my violet Swirly mask as part of her disguise.

I don't know if I should feel pleased or insulted! This scene unfolds on the episode titled "Supergirl", season 10 episode 3, and can be watched on
