    Fun masks

    So with all the covid cases ramping up locally, and seeming the number of older people I see, not wearing masks, also seeming to ramp up, I looked a while back and decided to look again, at/for fun masks.

    I think in another post, I mentioned seeing the mask cover that was the facehugger from Alien.
    Almost bought one that looked like Chain mail or some computer ones for a sibling.
    Saw a guy wearing one that looked like it was made from his wife's panties in one store.
    Ball gag face mask on Halloween. Talk about staring and laughing.
    Favorite so far, is the Hannibal Lecter mask.

    Thinking of making one with velcro on the outside, so fake beards (ZZ top, Santa), could be attached.

    Wondering what masks have made you smile.

    At my old job site we had a mannequin wearing work clothing we sell and someone put a Batman mask on it. One day the lines were long, and a counter guy called on a customer. The customer pointed to the mannequin and said, "This guy's been waiting longer than me."

    We all had a good laugh over that. But I would say fun mask is an oxymoron.

    I am so glad that most people locally are wearing masks. My hometown in Wisconsin has gone down the shit tube between trumpers and anti maskers. My friends aren’t happy and one is dead despite 8 months of isolation.

    Just walked home from exercise and 6 people walked by me. None were wearing masks and they were evenly divided between young family with child and three older (grey hair) people.

    I assume you were wearing one? If so, good for you for protecting both yourself and them.

    Some fabric artists have made patchwork "plague masks." https://totallythebomb.com/heres-a-f...ue-doctor-mask

    Also, there was an artist painting realistic lower-face portraits on COVID masks. I think I posted a link a couple of weeks ago.

    I made the mistake of going to get takeout at a bar /restaurant in Hermann that’s pretty “down-home.” No one in the place was wearing a face mask. I backed up as much as I could from them, wearing my face mask. I gave my order, and then left the restaurant and walked around for 15 minutes while they prepared it. Then I darted back in to grab it.


    But I won’t be going back there, it was too crowded and no facemasks UGG.

    Meanwhile, I ran through two stores earlier in the day and both stores required facemasks. Also, they were quiet and not crowded and I didn’t worry much about being in them.
