Head of the Dead
The Head of the Dead is a community-created cosmetic item for the Pyro. It replaces the Pyro's default gas mask with a skull mask that covers the entire head. The skull has many team-colored paintings; an upside-down drop on the forehead, flower petals around the eyes, a stylized mustache on the cheeks, lips around the mouth, and five drop-like markings on the chin. All of those decorations could be painted over.
This item has two styles, named "Decorated" and "Plain". The "Plain" style removes the decorations from mask, and cover it whole with paint (if applied).
