For a couple of years now, I’ve been hosting the “Month of Masquerades” on my site. It’s my own way of celebrating October, and the chance it brings to get creative with costumes.
This year, I have a very literal rendition of this phrase, and multiple Masks to share!
I managed to get crafty with the most of these, hand painting 4 of them this year - and one from last year. Not only are masks ideal if you are in need of a REALLY last minute costume, but masks can be a cherry on the sundae that is your ensemble. For example, one of the simple eye masks is perfect for any “superhero” look - I purchased the black one originally for my Catwoman costume last year before finding the lace version used in my photos.
I also painted some super creepy masks for a video collaboration with Brian Hanke this past summer, and now they’re the perfect eerie Halloween decor! They look great hanging in my apartment, if not a little startling in the middle of the night.
Another precursor for this month's costume posts - I'll be posting a few costumes within single posts, all under the same genre. In past years I've done individual posts for each costume I've created, so we are switching things up this time! Not to worry - they'll be just as detailed, if not more. Considering I've been planning some of these since LAST Halloween, you can count on them being good!
In the meantime, check out some Halloween movies while you wait, like any of the flicks from this handy list I created!
