Steampunk gas mask for sale

Steampunk plague doctor mask handmade of medium weight veg tan leather with cold cast aluminum eyepieces, beak and ventilators. Steel dome rivets and buckles, and solid brass rings, complete the look. This mask is all handstitched with waxed thread. The gray acrylic eyepieces make it hard for people to look in, but fairly easy for the wearer to look out. The three straps are adjustable to fit most adult sized heads. The leather was dyed violet and red, then antiqued black over that to give the mask a look of antiquity. There are two neoprene rubber pads, one for the forehead and one for the chin.

NOTE: The price only includes the mask. The hat is not included.

    Simply amazing. Very happy with the quality of this mask. I work in the film industry and it exceeded all expectations. I’ll come back for more.

    Fits great and came right on time!

  3. Is this a functional gas mask?

      Hi MxPhoenix, if you are looking for a gas mask to survive an attack, this mask will not help you, it has no filters. It’s just a decorative mask, for costumes 🙂

  4. I think the purpose of the mask was to place a barrier between the doctor and the plague victim. Transfer of the plague from person to person was by fleas, which was not known to the people of the time of the plague. The bird beak was to contain a ‘nosegay’ to give the doctor something else to smell than the plague victim. The ‘beak’ had flowers, or incense or some other smoldering plant so the doctor smelled something other than plague victims…this is why sometimes a plague mask will have smoke coming from it…
    and no, not a functional gas mask…..unless you are with someone who likes beans.
    The plague dr. also carried a cane or stick, to move aside clothing, etc, without touching the plague victim.

      You’re right Bruce! 🙂
