Details

The Tribal Dragon is a bold and striking mask, with short curved red horns and bright red tribal tattoos on a black background. This unique handmade leather mask is sure to turn heads at Mardi Gras, Halloween, or at a costume party or masquerade. When not being worn it can be displayed as an art piece.

The tribal designs were hand-carved into the vegetable-tanned leather, which was then shaped, dyed, painted, and sealed against moisture. Black organza ties complete this mask. It is flexible and lightweight. The design of this mask allows it to be a little wider than usual, so this mask will fit an average to large face. (My face is average-sized, and I can wear it, though the cheeks of the mask don't touch my face. The fit can also be customized somewhat with pieces of sticky-back felt, which I provide.)

The Tribal Dragon mask in the photos is one of the first made of this design. The mask you receive may contain slight variations intrinsic to the creation of handmade work. Each Tribal Dragon mask, while similar to its predecessors, is a unique work of art.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

This Tribal Dragon mask design was inspired by tribal tattoos, including the fascinating facial tattoos (actually carvings in the skin, called ta moko) of the Maori people of New Zealand.

Materials Used

vegetable-tanned cow leather, leather dye, acrylic paint, sealer, organdy ribbon

More Info

This mask design is an Eirewolf Creations original.

If you want more than one Tribal Dragon mask, I can make them to order (and painted in different colors if you wish). A mask similar to the one pictured is in stock and ready to ship. No two masks will be exactly the same, even when I create the same design; they are unique works of art!

Not quite the mask you're looking for? Click the Home tab above to see all my available masks and eye patches. I also consider commission requests if you like my style and have a particular design in mind.

My leather masks are designed to handle normal wear, but please don't wear them in a rainstorm or immerse them in liquid, as too much moisture can damage the leather and/or dyes. I provide a piece of sticky-back felt with each mask purchase, which you can use to customize the comfort of your mask if necessary.


*** SHIPPING:

Please see my Policies page for detailed shipping information. I ship internationally and will combine shipping for multiple purchases of leather masks and accessories. Buyers are responsible for any duties, tariffs, or VAT that may be levied by their country's customs office.

Multiple leather items purchased within the U.S. ship for the price of one. The displayed U.S. shipping costs are estimates based on the farthest zip codes.

Policies

Welcome to the ArtFire shop of Eirewolf Creations! I am Erin Metcalf, the artist also known as "Eirewolf." Here you will find handmade leather masks, eye patches, and costume accessories, all designed and created by me. Thank you for visiting my shop!

I want you to be happy with your purchase. Please contact me with any questions you might have before buying, or with any problems, questions, or lavish praise you might have after receiving, my creations! :-)

If you'd like to see some of my past works, please visit my online gallery at www.EirewolfCreations.com.


PAYMENT:

I accept Paypal, credit cards, and USPS money orders. (If you are mailing a USPS money order, please send payment within 3 days and please contact me to let me know you are doing so. I may cancel the sale and relist the item if I don't hear from the buyer within that time.)

California buyers: State sales tax should be added automatically when you check out. If you're paying via money order, please add 7.5% to the total (minus shipping). Please add 8.75% (and contact me for possible hand-delivery) if you live in Santa Clara County.


SHIPPING:

I usually ship leather items within one business day (unless they are made to order).

If you are in the U.S. and you purchase more than one leather item at the same time, I ship the additional items at no additional cost. I will combine shipping on leather masks and accessories for international buyers.

I ship via USPS, First Class Mail Package for small items (like eye patches) and Priority Mail for masks within the U.S. I ship via First Class International for buyers outside the U.S. (unless Priority or Priority Mail Express International is requested and paid for). I pay for insurance myself, or personally guarantee my items.

My shipping estimates for the U.S. show the maximum (farthest distances from California); I will refund the difference if the shipping cost is more than $2.00 less than the estimate. (This shipping difference refund can only be issued if you have a verified account with Paypal, and pay via that method. If you don't have an account with Paypal, please send me your zip code and a list of desired items for an accurate shipping cost before purchase.)

I may use Signature Confirmation for items over $100.00 to make sure your purchase reaches the right hands (yours!).

If you pay with Paypal, I will ship to the address Paypal has on file for you. If that address does not match the address given here at Artfire, there may be a delay while we sort it out.

INTERNATIONAL buyers are responsible for any duties, tariffs, or VAT that may be levied by their country's customs office. If you need to know what additional fees or taxes your country may charge before deciding to purchase, please contact your post office or government tax office.

I will not declare a purchase as a gift, as I could be held criminally liable for falsifying customs forms. Insurance is NOT available to some countries including Israel, Mexico, and many African countries except via Priority Mail Express International, which costs more. In such cases the buyer assumes all risks of damage or loss (and the item will not be returnable) unless the buyer chooses to pay extra for Priority Mail Express International (and I will pay for insurance).

If you want to opt for Priority Mail Express International (or Priority Mail International), please contact me for an exact shipping charge before purchasing. Unfortunately I am not able to ship to all countries, especially items made with natural materials, because of individual countries' customs laws. (For example, I am unable to ship leather items to Italy.)

Please contact me before purchase if you have questions.


RETURN POLICY:

"What if the mask I purchased doesn't fit?"

I design my masks to fit the average adult face. Of course, not everyone has an average face, and sometimes a mask just doesn't want to cooperate. Some suggestions that might help are to gently flex the mask to widen or narrow it, and/or use pieces of sticky-back felt (which I provide) on the inside of the mask to make it sit more comfortably. If it still just won't fit...

I accept returns for a full refund if you notify me and send the item back to me (Priority Mail with delivery confirmation if in the U.S.) within 7 days after you receive it. Items must be returned unworn (except for trying on) and in the condition received. (If the item is a gift for someone else, let me know and the return period may be extended. The short time frame is to discourage costume "borrowing.")

All items besides masks and eye patches may be returned within 30 days (in the condition received) for a full refund.


ADDITIONAL INFO:

Commission inquiries are welcome! (Currently I am only considering commission requests for handmade leather masks, eye patches, and accessories similar to what you see in my shop.)

My leather items are designed to handle normal wear, but please don't wear them in a rainstorm, clean them with solvents, or immerse them in liquid, as too much moisture can damage the leather and/or dyes.

My wares are created in a smoke-free environment. They are sealed away or displayed in a protective curio cabinet in my home, until the time comes for them to journey to a new home.
