No.196 : Ghostface Killah x Extra Butter x Asics Gel-Lyte MT Gas Mask

Maybe it’s the ostrich leather, maybe it’s the quilting on the toe box or the sock liner, maybe it’s the gum sole, maybe it’s the burgundy. It’s definitely because one of my all time favorite lyricists is behind the cook up. The mask ties in Iron Man inspirations because of GFK’s alter ego, Tony Starks…

No.199: adidas Dame 5 “Black Panther” Helmet

There are so many masks to be made, I’m often asked when I’ll get around to creating masks of our favorite pop culture icons.

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.
