This Guy Makes Some Of The Creepiest Leather Masks In The World

Alle Ziele makes the creepiest leather masks in all New Zealand. They look like something straight out of a nightmare.

Ziele's work entangles fact and fiction in a dark fantasy world. And because he crafts the masks from leather, they bend and contort seamlessly with the wearer's face, making the effect even more surreal.

If these don't send shivers down your spine, we don't know what will.

"My objects sometimes take hundreds of hours to create due to fact that I use hand tools only," Ziele says of his process. "No machinery takes part in the process, every stitch is done by hand and there are thousands of it in every project."

And due to the fact that he travels often, there's really no way he could move with more than hand tools. Thus, the masks will always be 100% crafted by hand, which we think is the secret ingredient to their extreme creepiness.

"With a background of having studied Biology I find my inspiration in nature where I have fallen in love with organic shapes and structures," he says.

"The character design consists of my leather work combined with body painting, costume, props, basically whatever tells the story."
