Masks were required for a masquerade ball we were planning on attending. Rather than buying something that looked ugly and was expensive we had the idea to make the masks ourselves.
The two types of mask outlined in this instructable are designed to be worn by a male and female. It should be obvious which is which.
A lot of googling
was done prior to give us ideas, the main criteria was we wanted masks that shared similar colours, hence, we decided on using a red, gold and black colour scheme.
