Picture of Dress up your dust mask or Make Me a Kyuubi
The simple dust mask is becoming more commonplace. You can now see people wearing them to the mall in an effort to protect their lungs. The standard mask looks boring and uninspired. It does however offer a platform for dynamic alteration of your personality...

I Chose the Kyuubi!

Step 1: You will need

Picture of You will need
A desire to be different... plus...

A hot glue glue gun
Several sheets of craft foam I used 2 orange, 1 white and 1 black
and a disposable dust mask. (Niosh 95 works nicely) Acklands sells 12 for $10...
Some scrap paper will help as well.

 When I'm doing some things that need a gas mask, I tend to go for the non-disposable kind (the one with two things sticking out the side). Do you thing it would be possible to make a detachable version (like with clips or something), because I don't think my woodwork teacher would like me sticking something permanent on his masks ;).

There may be some safety concerns in using this where it could id could interfere.

However you could use a non-permanent adhesive like a 2 sided tape or a small secondary strap that allows you to place the persona mask over the first without actually attaching it directly to the mask.

good luck and have fun!!!

 Thanks, I'll probably go and make one ASAP :)

Nice, do you have a "Domo-like" mask that works for the surgical flat pleated dust masks?
Random_Canadian (author)  caitlinsdad5 years ago
This should work with the surgical masks, just make sure to expand it fully for proper fit before attaching anything to it.
I do not have any other designs so far but the use of white teeth may be lost on a white or light blue surgical mask.
 you could pin/stick some red felt over the middle of the mask, but I'm not sure you would get very good airflow through felt. or you could use a permanent marker, but that would smell horrid.
Random_Canadian (author)  the_mad_man5 years ago
Good idea, Maybe some red mesh to break up the white... I totally agree with not using the marker though, It may actually prevent the mask from working properly.
