Steampunk Masks

25 May

Don’t ask me why someone would dedicate themselves to making these things. It’s not that they’re not awesome,  they’re totally awesome. It’s just…. their possible uses kind of creep me out.

These are made by Tom Banwell. It’s his thing, making really, really creepy steampunk masks.

The best intended use i can dream up would be some Mad Max Road Warrior kind of film, set in a post apocalyptic steampunk world. That would be killer.

It’s the sex that scares me.

It’s like… there’s a nightclub in a dark city where the people attending all wear these masks and have an orgy. And it’s… a horrible thought.

So let’s be clear, Road Warrior wasteland… awesome. Orgy…. NOT COOL.

What would be cool is to wake someone up wearing one of these.

In any case, the artist is Tom Banwell and his website can be found He’s got a HUGE number of other kinds of awesome masks, i just focused on the creepy leather ones.

    It’s going to be like that scene in “Brazil,” isn’t it?

      Yeah, something like that. That’s good. That’s close. Only with less enjoyment on your part than Sam Lowry had.

    Sex? These masks have nothing to do with sex in my mind. THat just shows how twisted your mind is.

    yours truly, Tom Banwell, artist (not deviant)
