I don’t know why I’m oddly intrigued by this bear sac – or bear sleeping bag if you will. I don’t know if it’s cuddly and warm, or if it’s just oddly ridiculous and gross. Either way, what a cosy way to sleep. Really well made. Check the details.

A couple of years ago Steve Wintercroft, after receiving an invite to a Halloween party but struggling for costume ideas, sat down with a pile of old cardboard, some parcel tape, a pair of scissors and plenty of hot tea. An hour or so later and after some trial and error he had made himself a fox mask. The mask was well received so a year later he redesigned it and added a couple of other animals. And thus was born the WINTERCROFT Etsy shop.
The masks are straight forward to cut out and assemble and are intended to be made from waste card, old cereal boxes are perfect. Steve designed masks for music videos, fashion shoots, parties and events with designs from dogs to a Stag and is always open to suggestions for new ideas. If can’t find what you are looking for or you need a particular mask for your event, just ask. In the shop you will find delicately drawn templates, and easy to follow written instructions so that the masks can be assembled by anyone, using local materials and removing the need for mass manufacturing or shipping. You’ve GOT to see how amazing these masks are after the break:
