Very purposeful looking masks! Hopefully we are past the need for such things now (unless of course for sartorial effect). And yes, for both the respective headwear does compliment the overall look most handsomly.

Yours,

Purposeful, yes, because that has been my daily cold weather look throughout the pandemic! I don't wear the wool cape,but a leather bomber jacket, and you can see what the years have done to my beautiful hat  :-[

I have more photos with my Steampunk wear, but they're not Steampunk necessarily. I wear the Leaderhosen braces and corseted shorts regularly when the weather is good outside. So as promised and in line with Steampunk ethos, I actually wear my Steampunk on the sleeve, literally.

I've already worn and replaced two sets of the corseted shorts (from China) and one pair of leather braces (from Germany), and innumerable sets of thigh high socks (From the State of Oregon), but I've found all these garments are easy to replace, so I always have a fresh set for the full Luftschiffengel uniform (the corset looks cool, but it's very restrictive for daily wear so you won't see that wearing that often)

I tend to wear the Alpine Trachten set regularly as part of my gender fluid look, like overalls, say, over a T-shirt, or a blouse and cami combo for a 90s Grunge look,  or lately even wear the Trachten set over a black cold-shoulder long sleeve bodysuit for a killer "Goth Fem" look ( Yeah, I'm crazy like that. Take a Walk on the Wild Side  ;D I'm still slim enough for that  ::) ;D ) - so yeah, I'm definitely a Steampunk one way or another.

Kilted and ready to kick ass (also my arms are not long enough to make proper pictures)

Love the mask/pith helmet combo.  For me it's been the Covid mask with the Pickelhaube-fur hat, for the last two years during winter. I do get a lot of compliments on it. Alas my hat has really worn out now because the leather was artificial. I've bought a couple of similar hats, but they're not looking as good as the original. I'm pondering remaking the same hat with real leather by myself or by hiring a tailor I know to do it (wouldn't mind paying a lot more if the hat could last a lifetime, though).


Thank you! your mask is great too! I basically worked around the mask a bit, trying to make it work with an outfit i could scrounge from my closet :P
