My most recent mask, Kleiveer the Bearded Vulture (Lammergeier)!
This is built on a base crafted by the very talented Crystumes! Altered, furred, and finished by myself.
The beak is articulated and opens with the wearer's mouth, though I don't have a video at this time.

Resin base (Crystumes), faux fur, acrylic eyes, paint, and apoxie sculpt.

Lammergeiers and many other vultures are in trouble. Some species have lost over 90% of their population (read more: http://www.peregrinefund.org/news-release/321 ). Many African species are on track to extinction right now. Beardies are seeing some conservation success in some areas (some of Europe), and declines in others (70% loss in Africa!). Vultures, in addition to being kick-ass, are super important parts of our ecosystems, and are worth saving.
