Queen of Cats Masquerade Mask

Queen of Cats

A fantasy fairy Queen of Cats, for the 2010 production of Puss in Boots, being staged by the Pantomime Theatre Company in Leicester. This mask is the most elaborate out of a set of nine cat masks that I am currently making for the show. She is made using a combination of traditional Venetian papier-mâché techniques with a more modern approach using leather and fabrics. The crown is wire work, embellished with glitter, sequins and Swarovski crystals.
