The thing about bats is that even the biggest ones are still absolutly adorable. They're like flying puppies that carry their own stylish cloaks with them wherever they go! Also they have huge eyes and big ears. With this mask, you will have to provide your own cloak, but everything else is included.
A full copper headpiece, Flying Fox can be worn over the face, or up on the head, more as a helm-ish-thing, or switch with ease back and forth.
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.
