The past week has been a busy one with relatives from interstate staying a few days and making preparations for Miss G.'s school Formal. A Formal is a bit like an American school Prom. We had the shoes, the dress, the makeup, the bag, the hair appointment, all we needed was a mask as the theme was Masquerade. We could have bought a mask but what would be the fun in that and I really didn't want to pay a lot of money for something that would only be used once. So we found some basics masks from a $2.00 dollar shop and I set to work to make not one but three masks. One for Miss G., one for my nephew who was partnering Miss G. to the Formal and one for Miss G.'s friend. Here is what I came up with.
These are the materials I used to make for Miss G.'s friends mask.
This is the end result. Buttons were an absolute must on this mask as requested by the wearer.
Miss G. painted the design she wanted on her mask and I then added glue, lots of glitter and some little rhinestones.
