Court Tragedian by devilsvenus Court Tragedian by devilsvenus
'Court Tragedian' to me, is the opposite of the Court Jester or Madcap - he's the fellow who is hired not to make his audience laugh, but to move them to tears... a story teller and a master performer, with no tricks to pull out of his sleeve except life's tragedies. :D Haha... yes, quite somber I know, but it's what I envisioned when I created it.

This beautiful half mask was the first one created by me and is wound in champagne, forest green and black cord and accented with:

Black matte beads
Large metallic olive beads
Gold beads of various shapes and sizes
Gold foiled filigree tips
Chocolate colored gems
Golden poppy yellow gem
Forest green gems

and black and gold fabric appliqués.

I love how this mask looks!
Is it okay, if I use this picture in my Much Ado About Nothing directing metaphor presentation? I needed a mask for Don Pedro, and even though the mask has a somber mood behind it, I liked how different it was for him.
I know, I don't need to ask, but I also wanted to comment on it. Great job by the way!

gorgeous work. I followed a link here from #ProjectComment 's article, and had to browse your gallery.

I think this is my favorite of all of them.

Of course.. emerald green IS one of my favorite colors and it looks splendid with the gold, black and white. More minimalist then your others, but I think it's one of the strongest pieces :D

Thank you kindly madam. Funnily enough, it's the piece I enjoy the least. :) To each their own!

Ah.. but WHY do you enjoy it the least? Because of it's simplicity compared to the others, or because of things that went into or on, while making it? *L*

i really love how your masks look. i haven't seen someone that uses cording like you do, and it's very refreshing to me and original. keep up the great work and i can't wait to see more. :heart:
i don't know why i lamed out so terribly when i trying to make a mask and didn't think of using 3d objects. :ohnoes:

:) You didn't lame out... you just had your own ideas for masks in your mind. Now you've got fresh inspiration! I'm going to check out your page when I get back home.

Thank you so much for you compliment, I really appreciate it, so much work is being put into these babies!

haha. thanks. and your masks are very inspirational. the satin cording is so perfect for these masks and makes them look so much nicer and higher quality. i'm debating about whether i want a mask for the masquerade ball i'm going to next year. i'm just getting a really early start on my costume. and these masks have really got me thinking about different elements of my costume, so thank you very much.

you are very welcome. :heart: they look like you've put a lot of work into them.
