I got your email about how you are looking for jungle kitch so I took a nice picture of one of my most prized possessions!
My brother and I went half and half and bought this Lion mask at a magic store in vegas. It was so awesome we couldn’t leave vegas without it.
It also scares us and we have to keep it covered in a bag because we’re afraid to see it in the house haha! One day I’ll have a nice room to disply it in.

    How big is this mask? It looks giant in the photo. I love all the detail on it. The face almost looks like leather but I’m guessing it’s rubber. And all the fur/hair sewn around it is great. Excellent colors as well.

    (The AWMOK Jungle Animal Petting Zoo is a scenic attraction whose cages are currently being filled to coincide with the release of the upcoming Pomplamoose with Allee Willis “Jungle Animal” VideoSong and online music game and contest. Jungle tamer, AWMOK creator, curator and charming hostess, Allee Willis, me, will be steadily leading jungle animals to their cages over the next 1-2 months or so as you bring them here until the song is released. If ever there ever was a category that was primed to be kitschified it’s that of “Jungle Animal” as all the stripes, spots and fur have been inspiration for designers since the beginning of time. I thank you all in advance for placing your jungle pets in such an illustrious cage as The Allee Willis Museum of Kitsch. Keep them coming!)

      It’s like a regular size Halloween mask, about 12″ head to chin, maybe…I’m just guesstimating. It’s made out of rubber; a pretty tough rubber not a cheap flimsy kind. What I loved about it, was that it doesn’t look like a real life lion, it looks almost like a lion with clown make-up on.

    This reminds me of the cowardly lion in The Wiz, or at least the picture of him on the cover of the soundtrack, which I have around here somewhere!
