   Ordering Information 
For masks for Halloween or Mardi Gras/Carnevale, Christmas or New Year's, e-mail me first to learn whether the mask you desire is available, as these are my busiest seasons and my work schedule fills rather quickly.  Thanks!

Oyez!  Oyez!  Oyez!

There can be no returns, so please choose carefully.
Read the FAQ for more information.

How to Order Your New Mask - a Primer:
Step 1 -- Make your selections ;
Step 2 -- E-mail your * Query to verify availabilty and get your shipping costs;
Step 3 -- Send your payment via PayPal.
( Please wait until I've confirmed to you that I can handle your mask request
 before sending any payments.  Thanks for understanding. )

Whether you're interested in a one-of-a-kind mask from the Uniques Collection, or want to order a classic from the Open Editions, or buy one off the Rack or out of Oblivion, please e-mail me first to verify its availability.  During the masquerade seasons leading up to Halloween, Christmas, New Year's and Mardi Gras / Carnevale, it can be difficult for me to update my pages on a day-to-day basis.

             * E-mail with your query:
           1 )  Your shipping address ( or zip code, at the very least)
           2 )  Your e-mail address ; 
           3 )  The names of  the masks you desire.

At this time I'd like to encourage you to use USPS for your deliveries.  FedEx is demanding ever escalating fuel surcharges, making their services very expensive --  for this reason at this time all shipments to Canada will be via post.

However, if you opt for delivery via FedEx, please be sure to provide me with a phone number that I can put on their waybill (their rule, not mine) should FedEx need to contact you regarding the delivery of your new masks.  Also, FedEx does not deliver to P.O. boxes.

Note:  I use only my own Federal Express account, as I've been burnt too often by bogus accounts and 'borrowed' delivery addresses.

The prices of the masks do not include shipping and handling, simply because many folks order two or more masks at a time -- also, some are in a hurry to get their masks and are willing to go to the extra expense of an overnight delivery.  This way it's fair to everyone.

Orders with insufficient funds for shipping and handling
will returned unprocessed.

SHIPPING AND HANDLING CHARGES: These charges will be based on the total order.   Shipping and handling charges are determined by the dimensions and weight and value of the package.  All packages are shipped fully insured, using only Federal Express and the USPS.

Please allow at least two to four weeks for the domestic/US deliveries of masks that have to be created on demand, or four to six weeks for foreign/non-US deliveries.

Sorry, but I can't hold any mask for more than three (3) days --
-- yelling "Dibs!" works only on the school playground.

PayPal is the faster, safest and surest way to secure your mask for prompt shipping.

Payments via PayPal need to be addressed to:

Note:  My bank requires 8 (eight) business days to clear personal or corporate checks.

If you need it, here it is: The Universal Currency Converter.

The customer is responsible for any tariffs and / or importation taxes
and / or v.a.t.'s (value-added-taxes).

Allow a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks for delivery of non-U.S. orders. 
The United States Postal Service has no control over any package once it leaves U.S. soil. 
Customs can sometimes create unexpected delays.

All requested information is required for processing.  Your address and other personal information will not be given out because I respect your privacy.

For Tracking Your Package:

Federal Express  and  United States Postal Service

NOTE:  Copyrights are not included in the sale of any mask or headdress -- this includes reproduction by any means.  Snapshots for personal scrapbooks and web-pages are encouraged, though.  Desired reproduction and / or copyrights, or licensing for film or video purposes or stage performances, may be negotiated separately.

Please remember that these masks and headdresses are copyrighted artworks.

Thank you for your kind support.
