Dionysus is glorious in his weathered brass, looking royal and rough, majestic and troublesome, ready for anything. He is quite comfortable, with much of the (slight) weight resting on top of the head thanks to those wing/ear bits. They are fully adjustable with a second bit of ribbon, in addition to the one that will tie the mask onto your face, so you don't have to readjust the size every time. He covers much more of the face than most of my masks, and even so, he is easy to wear while eating, drinking, and can always be pushed back onto the head if you want a bit more accessibility.
Dionysus sports real horn; they are byproduct from other industry and are both stronger and lighter than any reproduction could ever be. They are securely attached and well sealed. Unlike feathers, the horns are really just as strong and enduring as the metal on which they are mounted.
(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.
