This past weekend Kelley and I attended Granite State Comicon as vending artists in their Artist’s Alley and Dealer’s room. I had a wonderful time and met some really cool people! With Halloween coming up, many of you asked if I had a store online or made custom masks. Yes, and yes! I sell my masks and other costume wear through etsy at http://www.etsy.com/shop/shaunart. I was waiting to list a lot of masks until after the convention was over, but now that I’m done with Granite State, I will be listing the bulk of what didn’t sell on my Etsy within the next few days. Be sure to check back!

If you need something very specific for Halloween, feel free to send me an email or message me through Etsy to start a commission. Get you commissions in soon, though! There’s only a month left before Halloween and I already have a few commissions in the works. The sooner you can place your mask orders, the better your chances of me accepting it for a Halloween delivery.

Thanks again to everyone who came out to Granite State Comicon, and to all the artist’s in our vending row who made the convention so much fun! Hope to see you all again next year.

Did you know that I have a Facebook page? Maybe you assumed so; but maybe you also assumed that I post the same content to my Facebook page as I do my blog. Well that simply isn’t true! I post lots of updates to my Facebook page and Twitter feed that never make it to my blog. They’re mostly small updates like statuses, progress pictures, and new Etsy listings, but you also get to see more of my personal photos, what inspires me, and a lot more of my sense of humor.

If this sort of thing interests you–if you want to see what’s happening between the blog posts–then please ‘like’ me on Facebook at, Facebook.com/Shaunart.net, and follow me on Twitter @ShaunaLeva

Right now on Facebook, I’m posting progress pictures of a painting I’m working on. See my process from beginning to end unfolding on the Facebook wall.

For those of you who like to do things yourself, I’ve got some new paint-you-own-leather-mask listings up on Etsy. Leather masks are surprisingly simple to make from vegetable tanned leather. However, if you only need one mask, its hardly worth the large investment of your time and money to track down a good piece of leather, draft a pattern, cut it out, punch holes, and wet form it, just so you can have a custom mask that may or may not turn out the way you like.

Instead, I’ve done the hard part for you with these masks by purchasing the leather in bulk, and completing all of the special tooling and prep-work which requires specialty equipment. All that’s left for you to do is design and decorate the mask of your dreams!

I have two styles of do-it-yourself masks available right now; the ever popular Super Villain Mask, and the stunning Sprite Mask. Both patterns were hand-drafted myself and are not available elsewhere. These masks are ready to paint! They readily accept acrylics, oil-paints, glue, glitter, varnishes, matte and gloss mediums, and just about anything else you can think of thanks to their smooth yet porous surface.

So what are you waiting for? Any design you can imagine is possible!

Alrighty, I will start with the Queen City Kamikaze Con business so we can get that out of the way and start looking at some pretty masks. February 16th, Manchester, NH, I will be vending at a one-day anime convention called Queen City Kamikaze Con. Admission is only $10! My table will be named under the collaborative fair project, “Faire Trimmings,” which is also the new title of my Etsy store, though the URL and username remains the same. Basically, Faire Trimmings is the name of any project that me and Kelley Griffin work on together, so that we can keep our individual art careers as separate endeavors.

In the Etsy store today we’ve got some new masks up! Including this super mischievous leaf sprite mask for only $20. All of my masks are hand-cut, carved, and painted with a waterproof acrylic ink, then sealed with a waterproof acrylic varnish. All of my masks are one-of-a-kind, so if you see one you like, you’d better get it before its gone forever. Just click on any image in this post to be taken directly to the listing.

I have also recently added two new super hero masks. The above is the slimmer of the two, designed to fit the petite face of a woman or teenage girl without covering all of her beauty. That’s one thing that I always found annoying about wearing a mask with a costume–if the mask is too big, it would cover my entire face. I like my face, and I would like for people to still be able to see it. These slim masks are my solution. They cover only what’s necessary to hiding your identity (essentially your eyebrows) and nothing more.

Another new listing in the shop is for the option to add a length of cord or ribbon to your mask purchase. All of my masks come with pre-punched holes designed to allow this particular suede and ribbon to pass through them snugly, but without snagging. At this time I offer black suede cord and black organza ribbon. The cord is barely noticeable once the mask is on your face, especially if you wear it under your hair while the organza is a dressier more decorative accessory.

The second of the new slim masks up for sale is this standard black mask made to fit any adult face. It is not slim, it is not over-sized. It is simply an average black mask. This makes it a costuming staple, really. It’s like owning a white camisole–you gotta have at least one!

Remember I also make custom masks. So if you have a specific costume for which you need a mask, send me a message and I would be happy to help!

I recently finished making two cute and cozy holiday ornaments out of vegetable tanned leather. They were hand cut, carved, and painted using a waterproof acrylic ink. I modeled the ornaments after cliche vintage christmas sweaters, to give them an extra warm an cozy visual appeal.

 

The ornaments are strung on a hemp cord which is tied in a picture perfect bow. Each ornament is available for sale in my Etsy Shop.

I want to say thank you to everyone who came out to the open house this past weekend at the Western Avenue Studios. I had a great weekend and made a lot of new contacts. I practically ran out of business cards and promo bookmarks, and I am very grateful for the interest in my work. There will be four more big open house days in December, the 1st, 2nd, 8th, & 9th. If you didn’t get a chance to come to the studios this month, but are still interested, those are your days. The open studios are a great opportunity to get some Christmas shopping done, and a chance to find some absolutely one of a kind gifts.

Most people were stunned to find out affordable most of my items were, and my items under $5 were flying off the shelf. I tend to have things for sale for every budget. I’ve always got a lot of great stocking stuffers for under $10, and a whole range of unique jewelry and prints for under $25. Larger original craft items and leather accessories go for under $50, and then for those of you with more expensive taste, I have original, beautifully framed paintings ranging in the hundreds of dollars.

Anything that I didn’t sell at the open house this past weekend will be going up on my Etsy store within the next few days. Some great Halloween items are already listed, so go take a look!
