Greetings and Salutations My Fellow Deviants,

My name is Nathan Rodriguez and I am a Leather Artisan. I craft just about anything out of leather, however my primary focus is on masks and armor. I have been working with the medium for nearly 4 years and I only want to go further with my craft. I do occasionally take on commissions, if there is something you would like send me a message either here or preferably at my etsy shop at

Thank you for stopping by,
Epic Leather
Greetings fellow Deviants,

We will be relocating soon so in order to clean out my inventory to have less to transport (and cover moving costs) Im selling a few of my already made masks at less than what the materials cost to craft them.

TO VALHALLA MASK - $299.99 originally $499.99
Oh what a day.  What a lovely day! by Epic-Leather…

ZERO - $199.99 Originally $749.99
Zero by Epic-Leather…

Aku The Master of Masters by Epic-Leather…

STEAMPUNK ALCHEMIST $199.99 Originally $999.99
Steampunk Alchemist: FIGHT! by Epic-Leather…

CURSED NURSE $59.99 Originally $299.99
Silent Hill Inspired Cursed Nurse Leather Mask by Epic-Leather…

LARP BRACERS - $149.99 Originally $349.99
Distressed Dragon Bone Vambrace by Epic-Leather…

There is nothing wrong with these wares I just need to downsize since I wont have much room to store wares while in transition. Most have been on display and I would rather sell them to a good home than to have them sit around collecting dust.

Thanks for looking.

Hi, I was just wondering why you don't put in coyote teeth into your masks any more? They were cool.
Epic-Leather Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Professional Artisan Crafter
Thanks!  No reason really, I still use them on commissions it's just the stuff I have been inspired to work on as of late hasnt called for them, but I do have some in the works that I plan using them again.  I've been busy with moving/RL these past few months and a few yet to come so I havent had much time to work on new projects aside from filling orders, but rest assured I'll have them in some upcoming masks.

Hey there!
I absolutely llove your work
And I saw that you have crafted a Kaneki Mask from 東京喰種トーキョーグール.
I am currently in the process of trying to design my own to create one for my boyfriend since he's a big fan of the anime and loves the character.
Now, I've looked around the internet for help and picture processes for the mask and I just cannot find wht I'm looking for.
Do you think you could help me and explain how you created yours a bit?
It would be aboslutely wonderful if you did.
Thanks~ -Andii

I wasn't looking for the patterns
:bulletblack:I just wanted to know
:bulletblack:What materials besides Leather did you use.
:bulletblack:How did you get it to form so greatly to your face
And did You Paint your leather from the tan or whatever.

Sure, I've got the materials listed on the description of the mask: 

Tokyo Ghoul Ken Kaneki Mask - Patch Version 2

I use a variation on the cuir bouilli (boiled leather) technique used to harden armor in the middle ages to mold it all by hand.

I like your work. I was looking at the armor especially the gauntlets. Have you ever done just elbow pads? I haven't see any before, make out of leather other then being attached to an arm piece.

Thank you!  I haven't ever made them just by themselves but I most certainly could. ^^
