Halloween Orders 2012

It's mid August and the orders are already flying in! We're going to keep our etsy shop as stocked as possible, however we have some general guidelines and shipping deadlines for custom orders. Even if an item is marked as in stock, it would be a good idea to read this. :)

Custom Orders:

This applies to pre-existing (marked as "made-to-order" on our etsy) designs and brand new designs.

The LAST day to contact us and put a down payment on a custom order for Halloween is Friday, September 21st, 11:59PM Pacific Standard Time. If you place an order after that, we will do our very best to make it on time, but we cannot guarantee it. Custom orders pile up super quick during this season, and it can take up to 4-5 weeks to get an order finished and shipped.

In Stock Orders:

We will be shipping as quickly as possible, as each order comes in. The last day for standard domestic shipping guaranteed to arrive by Halloween is Wednesday, October 24th, 3:00PM Pacific Standard Time. It usually only takes 2 days for domestic shipments, however it can take up to 7 days. If you order after that date and need the mask by Halloween, contact us and we can upgrade your shipping.

International Orders:

It typically takes one week to arrive outside the US, however since customs could potentially hang onto the item, we cannot guarantee arrival dates. Upgraded faster shipping is available upon request, however there's still no definite way to be sure that custom's won't hold the item for many weeks. We have never had that happen, though it's still a possibility. Always, we provide customs declaration numbers with every order so you can contact them to get everything sorted. My best advice would be to order as quickly as possible.

That's all for now! Expect another one like this once the winter holiday season picks up.

IndieGoGo Campaign for the use of a laser cutter!

Hi! So, short post. BUT we've started a campaign to raise the necessary funds to access a laser cutter for 1 year. All the information is in that link. Or, if you could help spread the word, it would be much appreciated!

FaerieWorlds 2012

What a crazy wild weekend that was! I'm still in the process of sobering up from the high that is FaerieWorlds.

For starters, I've uploaded a n00b video montage of my experience there:

I can't even really properly word all of everything that happened. So, I'll keep this fairly short.

It was absolutely incredible to see so many hordes of people, characters, musicians, and others all wearing Oak Myth Masks. Very quickly, I had lost count of every sighting of past and new creations that were wandering around out there, in the wild. Old customers would even wander in from time to time to tell us stories of all the adventures they had gone on with their masks and crowns. I think that's probably what I love the most... the stories and journeys that people embark upon with these wearable art pieces Eve and I create.

Carmen, our dearest and beloved model, came with us again for this ride (and drove the car most of the way... god, I love that woman). She performed magically! It's thanks to her that Oak Myth Masks will be appearing in a documentary.
She attracted the attention of a film crew, who invited her (wearing the white wolf mask) to be in their documentary titled: "A Journey Through Transformation Festivals." Later, they came into our booth to film and photograph lots of our creations. We're going to be in the credits!
You can watch the trailer here:

And visit their website / Facebook page!

So, I suppose to wrap this post up, I'll leave you all with some wonderful photographs I've collected from the festival:
