No.146: Gold Unicorn Mask made from Asics Gel Lyte IIIs

Asics Gel Lyte III Gold Unicorn Mask by Freehand Profit
The unicorn and the lily are symbols of purity, the unicorn also represents femininity (as does the moon). Symbols are important tools for telling stories in a still image.

Unicorns are everywhere these days, from rainbow Starbucks drinks to advertising for shit stools. But our fascination with unicorns comes from their rarity and purity. Any sneakerhead can understand the appeal of ‘rarity’ as we hunt down limited edition pairs. Much the way we’ve valued precious metals like gold for millennia.

The Gold Unicorn Mask was made from a single pair of Asics Gel Lyte IIIs, it features a vintage cattle horn and horse jaw bones which have been coated in brass with gold leafed accents. The mask also utilizes faux furs to add to it’s ancient vibes. The unicorn mask was modeled by my beautiful wife Betsy VanDeusen.

Unicorns have been eluding us since the 5th Century BC. In our mythos and art they’ve been used to represent innocence and chastity; legends allude that only a virgin can capture a unicorn. They represent the magic of the human imagination.
