After publishing the Audioslave tribute mask by David Leroux this week we couldn’t help notice this standout helmet done by our friends at Headstrong Grafx – a Black Sabbath tribute – when it showed up on their Facebook site recently.
This mask won’t be seeing the TV lights of an NHL rink, but it’s being worn by someone with a pro’s appetite for new gear, a recreational goaltender who confessed to InGoal, “some women spend their money on purses and shoes…I spend mine on cool custom painted goalie masks.”
Liz Conner, who plays in Massachusetts, had some specific requests for Headstrong but also knew when to leave the design work to the pros,”I asked specifically for the picture of Henry (the flying devil logo) on the forehead, based on alternative CD art for ‘The Devil You Know’ and the band name on the chin. My only other stipulation was that the mask not focus 100% on Ozzy. Tony Iommi’s riffs are what drew me to Sabbath, and I wanted to make sure he was included somewhere. The rest was all Headstrong.”
All right Sabbath fans, what do you think? Let us know in the comments.
