Howl was intended for a musician/singer who needed something to cover more of their face for stage performance than most of my masks cover; but then it turned out the nose was too long to go with a mic. Whoops. But that means that -you- have the opportunity to truly hide behind one of my masks! So exciting!
Howl featured larger eyes than many of our masks, in addition to the cheeks and stripes, and a narrow nosebridge to allow for glasses. Howl is fabulous.
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.
