Masquerade Masks – How to Select for Guaranteed Fit

Masquerade Masks – The Perfect Fit

In a hurry, check out our Comfortable Masks section for both men and women.

Masquerade Masks & Glasses

If you wear glasses, a Stick is the best solution. We can add a stick to any mask for only $15.00 extra.

Are you looking for a Masquerade Mask to wear with Glasses. The options are either to add a stick to the mask of your choice or purchase a lace mask and wear the glasses over the top. The second option is not glamorous but it does free up your hands for grabbing canapes or in my case…. talking.

If glamour is important, then go with the stick. If you prefer comfort and can’t be bothered holding a mask on the stick, then a lace mask is the solution.

Ladies Masks

The most common issue when fitting masks is when the mask eye sockets are small they are less likely to line up with your own eyes. The best way to avoid this problem is to select a really nice mask with large eye sockets.

Small sockets can also be problematic if the mask touches the eye lid or interferes with those wonderful eye lashes that are in fashion now.

It’s worth considering ladies, that it is difficult to look glamorous if you feel uncomfortable. 

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I could not blog about good fitting masks without saying that “Italian Made Masks have superior fit because they contour the face so much better than the Chinese made copies”.

I am not saying that all Italian made masks fit well. Some Italian made masks can be a challenging fit. When the right person comes along they look great but when you are buying online it’s a risk worth avoiding.

You know you can call me for advice and I love giving personal service. I am a dinosaur from the age when the customer should enjoy the process of their decision making. I like to be offer lots of options, perhaps something specially made up and my full attention. So call if you would like to know more – 08 8333 1982

 

Men’s Masks

Men’s masks are far less problematic to fit, the eye sockets are generous on all our masks. Standard shaped masks tend to fit all men well except for giants or the men with cannon ball shaped heads. Sorry guys, its packed full of brains…. right?

Very Large Men have their own section of Masks for Large Men that feature our animated “Zane” profile.

Generally men love the look of these Italianate masks because they are purely masculine. Hey, nothing more masculine than a saucy Italian man…. well these masks are made in Italy for “those” Italian Men.

We often get asked if a regular built guy can wear a Zane mask. Yes, although the cheeks may not contour with the face quite as seamlessly but still good.

If you want the Zane Jester Mask so that you can clown around, the impact of the mask will certainly draw people’s eyes away from the slightly imperfect transition between mask and human face.

Gentlemen with a broken or very large nose are also suited to the Zane Profile. They could also consider our Cyrano Mask which has a very large nose. If you like, we can add a stick to the mask of your choice so that you will hold the mask rather than wear it.
