Emilie Autumn's Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls is offering the ultimate Christmas gift for collectors of all things EA and The Asylum!
Presenting The Auction Of: THE RAT MASK!!!!!
Worn by Emilie Autumn in all live concerts from 2008 to 2012Note from EA:
"Dearest Plague Rats, I could never have imagined parting with this, the one and only RAT MASK. I intended to keep it in my Asylum costume archives forever and ever. And yet, at the close of 2012, after so many incredibly thrilling, exciting, magical tours around the world, we are entering into a new age together -- you, the Plague Rats, the Crumpets, me, and the entire Asylum. It's time for new creatures, new characters, new masks, and beautiful new costumes.
I made the RAT MASK with my own two hands and some very surprising materials (should it be yours, you will finally see exactly how I did it!). I filled it with magic and mystery, the symbolism of the plague rat, the plague doctor, and the Asylum prison gate itself, and that murky and terrifying dream world where they all meet and become the very same."
This object that has traveled with me from obscurity into your minds, that has covered my eyes, shielding me from looking too quickly into yours and being blinded by their light when I first take the stage each night, and, yes, that has been responsible for my bumping into way too many walls and falling off a backstage rafter or two, is the most famous and most significant symbol of the entire Asylum show to this point.
But it is YOU who took the pictures, shared the stories, posted passionately on YouTube, shared and believed in this reality.
And, therefore, I can think of no nobler head to hold up this iconic symbol than...YOURS:)!
Once you put this thing on, you are going to realize just how much I CANNOT SEE during "4 O'Clock"..."http://www.ebay.com/itm/EMILIE-AUTUMN-THE-ORIGINAL-RAT-MASK-Authentic-Touring-Costume-Piece-/300830297977?
