FAQ

What is the difference between *Ready-Made and *Made-to-Order?
  • *Ready Made: Means you are buying the item pictured. If you would like a different color shop in the Made-to-Order section.
  • *Made to Order: I will be making a brand new piece for you after you order.  My work is laser cut, hand shaped, and hand dyed. I will do my best to match the item pictured. There may be some slight differences due to the handmade nature. The galaxy color will always come out different. The universe is vast.
    • If the color(s) you want are not listed please choose custom and put a note in during checkout. To order multiple colors please choose custom and write a note with your color choices during checkout. I can match fabric too. So, if you need a color match, tell me during checkout and send me an email at mischiefmasks@gmail.com with a few pictures of the fabric in different lighting. 
    • To order a multiple colors (Red fading to Black) choose custom and put a note in during checkout. 
How long will it take to get my *Made-to-Order item?
  • I should be able to make and ship most pieces within a week. I've been working to build up my stock pile of pieces already cut. So, usually I can shape within a day of the order, dye within a day after that, seal it the day after that, and package it the following day. Some items may ship faster. My workshop is full of pieces in various stages of production. For super complex pieces, or if I am waiting on supplies and I expect production to take longer than a week I will contact you to let you know the eta. 
What if I can't find what I want?
  • Not finding exactly what you want? I do custom work as well. Email mischiefmasks@gmail.com
What are they made of?
  • I use 6-8oz vegetable tanned leather, Eco-flo Waterstain dye, Acrylic Paint for the masks, horns, ears, eyepatches, and armor pieces. 
How do I take care of my item?
  • Leather is very sturdy so as long as you do not subject your piece to anything extreme it will last for a very long time. 
    • Not for swimming. As temping as it may be, please refrain from submerging any of the leather pieces in water. They are sealed on the outside so RAIN IS OK :), but if you get it soaking wet you will need to make sure it stays on a form (your face, your body, etc) until it is fully dry otherwise it will completely lose shape. 
  • White leather is extremely difficult to keep clean, even for clean freaks. I will happily touch up your white pieces in the future. Send me a message at mischiefmasks@gmail.com to arrange for a touch up. 
  • There are many products made to nourish leather. Any of them will be fine as long as they do not have any type of dye. I recommend Saddle Soap. You can find it online. 
  • Gently wash with wash cloth to remove dirt and makeup grime.
  • DO NOT SMOOSH. The easiest way to ruin your piece is to repeatedly shove it in a bag with a bunch of other items or accidentally set it on something. If you do misshape your item I can take a look to see if it can be revitalized. Email me at mischiefmasks@gmail.com
I want to try something on before I buy it. How do I do that?
  • The only way to do so is to visit one of my shops at a Renaissance Faire, Music Festival, or Dickens Fair. Due to COVID-19 I'm still not sure when the next show will be allowed to open. 
Do you have any vegan options?
  • Not at this time. I've been searching for an alternative material that will behave in the same manner. I've tried getting a hold of mushroom leather and pineapple leather, but the cost and availability is astronomical. 

How does the removable lining work?

  • To ATTACH the lining to your Filigree piece you simply turn the piece over and press the lining in. Take your time to line it up the best you can. 
  • REMOVE the lining by gently peeling it off of the filigree piece. I used industrial glue. Be gentle to prolong the adhesive lifespan. I will happily reattach anything that comes loose in the future. 
Why didn't you sew the velcro on?
      • It changes the look. I may do so on some of the new designs where I incorporate the stitches into the pattern. 

       How do I find a mask to match my armor ensemble?

      • Many of my current mask designs work well with any of the armor pieces. I suggest using the Filigree tag when searching through masks. I am working on special pieces designed specifically to match the armor. Stay tuned for updates. 

      Where are you based?

      • My studio is in California, but I often work on the road while I am at Faires.
