Project: Boston Crusaders & Animal Farm

I recently had the opportunity to make over 120 leather masks for the The Boston Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps. They toured the 2014 season with the theme ‘Animal Farm’

My assignment was to take the following animals; goat, dog, ram, horse, pig, chicken, and crow and turn them into recognizable, breathable, and sturdy masks that could be worn for the color guard’s full performance (and repeating performances through the season) What I would like to share today are some photos of the progress and design of these masks.

The finished product being worn by the BAC Color Guard can be see at the sites at the bottom of this page.  You can also search #bostoncrusaders on twitter and Instagram for photos of the show.

 

Please check out their preview trailer for the season on youtube:
