Northern California’s Tom Banwell makes fanciful masks out of laser-cut leather, among other materials.

From the pages of MAKE Volume 27:

His fantastic blog is a must-read for any costume designer or lover of steampunk. It’s filled with well-written, step-by-step explanations and interesting tips and tricks. (Be sure to search for “A Steamier Raygun Holster,” “Elevated Shoes,” and “Modifying a Straw Hat.”)
