the Duchess asks, "what will be your next Masquerade?"

You answer with a sly, silent shrug.

"Oh, you wicked creature," she accuses
over her tea cup
with a cunning smile.
"Well, whatever you do, you mustn't get caught without a Mask."


An example of custom colors:

Gleaming black and sparkling bronze
gold braid trim and satin ribbons.

(stretchy strap)

His name is Jack.  Just Jack.
Based on the elegant silhouette of Nijinski, each gentleman here is unique unto himself
with his colors dependent on my mood at the time of his creation
  secured by sturdy black satin ribbon ties.

currently, on the left:  burnished copper with smatterings of bronze glitter.
and on the right:  antique gold with scratches of dark red bleeding through, dusted in gold.

Price:  $80.00 each

    "Why are you wearing a mask?" Fezzik asked.  "Were you burned by acid, or something like that?"
    "Oh, no, it's just they're terribly comfortable," the man in black replied.  "I think everyone will be wearing them in the future." *
"D. P. Roberts"

He's D.P. to his mates -- those o' them that yet draw breath -- but to you and me,
evil princes, six-fingered noblemen and large, pale henchmen, he's the
Dread Pirate Roberts.
In smooth and thorough black with black satin ribbon ties, 
this is a simple mask for a complicated man.

Price:  $50.00  each
