Mardi Gras mask makeovers

 My guy is a techno geek so I
made his to have the
appearance of a circuit board. 
(he wanted to know why his 
has no feathers oops...
plug the glue gun back in) 
Mine took on a life of it's own as it went together. I knew I wanted the feel of my artwork and of course some leopard touches, so as I dug around in boxes and drawers in my studio for just the right pieces, it became a mask with two personalities.
 From the right one can see my 
wild shabby side but
if you came up on my left...
it's all about feathers. An ostrich plume or two and several peacocks feathers on a cluster of darker blue short ones.
So as we head off to the masked ball we are sure of one thing...we'll not be running into another couple with the same headdress.
