This little golden flower is the perfect reminder that while winter always comes, so does spring. She's a delight at New Year's, a joy at solstice, and fits right in at twelfth night. And, of course, she'll transition perfectly to carnival and spring festival, and, like the tenacious flower she sports, she'll keep blooming all summer and even peak into fall.
She's also super comfy, super easy to wear, and a great starter mask if you aren't sure you're ready for one of the big guys.
(as shown in the final photo, my glasses fit over this mask. If your glasses rest flat on the nose, they should, too. This one is not as good a fit for the kind of glasses that rest on those little nosepads)
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.
