This mask was crafted as a mascot and environmental educator for Pfeiffer Nature Center! Pfeiffer Nature Center is a wonderful natural area in Western NY state. Wendy was named after the late Wendy Pfeiffer, who endowed her family property to become an educational nature preserve.

She is a Pileated Woodpecker!

The resin base was created by Stuffed Panda Studios stuffedpandastudios http://stuffedpandastudios.com/

I then modified it and finished the mask. It is made with faux (fake) fur, resin, acrylic, and paint. The beak is articulated and opens with the wearer's mouth.

    Amazing work! And I love that it's named after the center's namesake! Great work all around!

    Terrific work!

    Your avian masks are so stunning. Your knowledge of anatomy and your attention to detail couple beautifully with this medium.

    That looks really nice. I like the fade from black to lighter grey along the beak, and the eyes.

    Is the beak strong enough to chip pieces of wood out of a tree, though? :D

      If it were soft, yes! But the wearer's face might not appreciate it.

        At least they'd get a lot of yummy bugs out of the deal.

    Incredible. So lifelike.

    Absolutely love seeing your suit work! Vantid's suit was the first one of yours that I saw in person, hope I can see more around someday!

      I have not made a Vantid suit?

        Oh my apologies! She was wearing a suit around I thought was one of your makes, I'm probably thinking of the wrong person then!
