8 - The Celestial Trio
I put the three of these together because they are masks that you work towards in one way or another but can’t obtain yourself. The Sun and the Moon masks comprise one of the most frustrating quests in the game (as I’ve said). But I like that their fusion, the Couple’s Mask, stands counter to everything that is Majora’s Mask. In the face of utter destruction, Kafei and Anjou are united; love stands tall against the immense chaos of the Moon and Majora.
And Majora’s Mask is the one that inspired the whole series. While looking a a series of Triforce pieces from a different project (to be shared later this week!) I saw Majora’s Mask appear. An interesting journey for me - forcing myself to simplify things, work with color and a bit of lighting in ways I don’t normally. We shall have to see what I can take from this!
Tomorrow, the reveal of them all together! Thanks for bearing with me through all of these mask posts!
Go back through the previous seven here: transformation, completionist’s, people, animals, death, clock town, remains.
Be sure to check them all out!
