I am so very thrilled by these buggy masks. The world of insects is so full of brand new thoughts and ideas and shapes I've never even considered. This little guy, with his lovely little feelers and his fantastic little mandibles! Oh, so sweet and lovely.
Due to the interaction between this mask's mouthparts and your own, you will not be able to eat a sandwich while wearing him. You can still easily eat a dinner with knife and fork, or cute little finger foods.
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.
