Featured Seller of the Day 10/22/2009

In honor of Halloween, which is fast approaching, today's featured seller works with leather to create unique and mysterious masks. His store is called:


Masks can transform a person in an instant. They hide our identity and release our inhibitions. For a brief period of time, we can be whoever we want to be. Tom Banwell makes masks that run the gambit from simple to complex. Here's an example of one of his cut-out masks.

Filigree Flame leather mask in shades of orange

This fiery red and orange mask is perfect if you want to wear something light and airy, but still be slightly mysterious. I love the way the flames seem to curl around the contours of the face. You can almost hear the fire crackling and see the tongues of flame dancing across the mask!

Not into masks? Then how about an elegant headband to complete your costume?

Leather head wreath with long leaves in gold

This simple, yet beautiful circlet is fit for royalty! The delicate golden leaves entwine the wearers head in pure elegance. Perfect to finish off a king or queen's costume, or even to grace the head of fairy priestess!

Perhaps though, you'd rather attend your costume ball as someone completely unrecognizable. This next piece will keep people guessing all night, as to who the wearer really is!

Leather mask Lightning Bolt in violet and gold

This masks protrays ferocity and power! There is magic here and the wearer is not someone to be trifled with! I love the color of this piece and the way it appears static and fluid at the same time; like at any second it could spring to life!

Hope you got some great costume ideas today. Make sure you check out the rest of the shop for many more wonderful pieces! :)

Tomorrow's featured seller makes ridiculuosly cute magnets and brooches. ::Hint - She works with felt!::
