GAS MASKS [115 icons]  
Always stylish -- particularly spooky around Halloween and suitable for any apocalypse. Military gear optional. Sized for men, women, children, and animals!

Many images from vintage, war-time photos or illustrations from across the globe; others originate from the modern variety, including fashion or kink.

It's official...I make weird icons.

I'm very pleased you think so! ;)

Likes 80, 103 & 114 but honestly I can't decide which ones to take properly! Ha ha, "Less Garlic" made me smile. :)

Gas masks as a theme, unexpected and most appreciated ;)
☆: Hand - S.K.theidolhands on October 23rd, 2009 10:32 pm (UTC)
I think these things are darn cool and interesting, but I've got a sense of humor that insists on sneaking out too.

As always, thank you so much for looking & even more for taking any (you may end up with a large storage file, as I have).

I love 50! Very nice :)
☆: Hand - S.K.theidolhands on October 23rd, 2009 11:20 pm (UTC)
It's extra fun to know which ones in particular had appeal.

Even though Mr. Turtle isn't technically wearing a gas mask, I couldn't resist tossing him in there.

Encouragement appreciated & love the lj name.
Call me something. If I like it, I'll keep it.: awej_l_bate on October 24th, 2009 03:23 am (UTC)
These are amazing! Do you have links to any of the source images?
☆: Hand - S.K.theidolhands on October 24th, 2009 06:18 am (UTC)
Search engine stuff, although I significantly enhanced/altered the images. :)

That Mickey Mouse one has got to be the most frightening of all.
☆: 鉄腕アトムtheidolhands on October 24th, 2009 06:19 am (UTC)
Mickey has had this creepy habit of showin' up at like that in these icons, I swear.

i love that one too.
☆: Hand - S.K.theidolhands on October 25th, 2009 05:33 pm (UTC)
A child is actually wearing it in #17.

Hey, that style in your icon looks familiar! ;) -- #69 {of this set}
i'm a loner, dottie.  a rebel.: allquietlittlelamb on October 25th, 2009 05:43 pm (UTC)
most likely! i think there's a few, like maybe around ten, that look similar to this mask, but they're all american ww1 masks.

i have one style sitting on my shelf (along with a few others) on little foam heads which is not creepy at all, i guess.
☆: Hand - S.K.theidolhands on October 25th, 2009 05:56 pm (UTC)
I divided them up, but one photo clearly exhibited the different styles of mask from around the world at that time. Great stuff.

That sounds awesome. I'd love to see a photo of that!

it's not that great. my vintage gas masks basically comprise the normal decor in my spare room. i have a small ww1 collection, including vintage posters and trench art that just sprinkle my home, and the gas masks constitute a small portion of the collection.

out of curiosity, where do the pin ups come from? like 87?
☆: Hand - S.K.theidolhands on October 26th, 2009 04:24 am (UTC)
Well, it sounds interesting to me.

Aside from search engines, I'd take a guess that #87 came from an alt fashion magazine or possibly Adbusters. There were actually 3 women hanging laundry in gas masks, styled rather 1960-ish, in the full shot, but she captured best in the icon.

huh. that's interesting. i love it when i stumble across art that fuses pin ups & alternative fetish stuff.

Hi, I took the, um, turtle. But I thought all of these were fascinating so I ended up taking #106. I can't say why. Will credit when used.
Thank you for sharing.
☆: Hand - S.K.theidolhands on October 24th, 2009 06:20 am (UTC)
There is an element of history & "what if" connected to them and...they're kind of cool looking in a weird way. I think that's it.

Thanks so much for looking and letting me know which ones where of interest!
wizzicons on October 24th, 2009 01:04 pm (UTC)
Very, very cool.
☆: Hand - S.K.theidolhands on October 24th, 2009 02:11 pm (UTC)
Appreciated. ;)
Amyverdika on October 24th, 2009 09:28 pm (UTC)
I took the turtle one and may take more later. This is an awesome set! Thanks.
☆: Hand - S.K.theidolhands on October 25th, 2009 05:26 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

Wow! I've never seen this many gas mask images in one place before! I've always thought there was something creepily intriguing about them.
☆: Hand - S.K.theidolhands on October 25th, 2009 05:27 pm (UTC)
I'm kinda proud of these, they really are the anti-icons to a lot of stuff out there that I've become quite tired of seeing. Even so, I realized my attempts at "pretty" among the batch probably go entirely unnoticed. XD

Taking #1,15,17,18,67,99,100...thank you so very much!

n/p. ;)

Out of general curiosity, may I ask which comm did you come from?
andiemoonandiemoon on October 26th, 2009 05:57 pm (UTC)
65 and 87. These are awesome.
☆: Hand - S.K.theidolhands on October 26th, 2009 06:11 pm (UTC)

YOUR comment means a lot to me. And I love that icon. Very cool.

He's a personal role model to me. :P
