Fiercely elegant, this is one of my all time favorites. She's super comfy and easy to wear- and hardly needs to be tied on at all- just plop her on your head like a hat, and tilt her back whenever you need to. She sports a large carnelian cabochon on her curled tail feather. Her nose curls up right at the tip, echoing the curled feathers that comfortably rest on your head. She's perfect.
The wonder of a copper mask is in the strength and give of the material. Because it is so strong, the mask can be very thin- this makes it both very light, and makes it possible to fit as a second skin. These won't block your peripheral vision the way a leather. paper maiche, or plastic mask would. They can be very comfortably worn all day and night- no worries about sweat or rain causing them to soften and lose their shape. Rinse it with clean water at the end of the night before putting it away. They can stand up to anything you throw at them. As for packing? Throw it in your bag. If you're checking the bag, maybe stuff a balled up pair of socks where your forehead would go. Easy.
Not planning to wear your mask? He or she won't mind. They can hang flat against a wall, or sit on a shelf.
