Formal Garden is a pretty little mask. She's lovely bright colours, and sports an antique stamping of a nice flower arrangement. She's great if either: 1- You super want to wear a mask to a particular event, but you're not sure if masks are really appropriate wear. In this scenario, she is small and elegant enough to pass as jewelry to everyone else, while still being the mask you yourself want to wear. 2- You are going to a masquerade type party, and feel like you really SHOULD wear a mask, but you're really not the mask type. In this scenario, she is light and comfortable enough to pass as jewelry to your slightly embarrassed self, while still being the mask you need to fit in.
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.
