The smell of disease is rancid in the streets, but you are the Plague Doctor. All you smell are the fresh lemon balm and rose hips in your mask, protecting you from the lethal miasma of the dying.

The Plague Doctor Mask is your protection from the dangers of the world's illness, shielding you just as a knight's armor protects him from a fatal strike. To everyone else, you are a symbol of knowledge and healing...but also the harbinger of death. Looking into the blackness of your mask's eyes feels like exposing one's soul, and so even your patients harbor fear at your presence.

DETAILS

With an adjustable leather strap and two fabric ties, Epic Armoury's Plague Doctor Mask is made to fit anyone. Made from natural full-grain quality leather and sturdy stitching, this is a product that can withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather care. And with the colour dyed into the material, it has a particularly fine finish.

Available in Brown and Black. One size fits all.
