My problem was that I could never find a high quality mask for a cheap price, and even when I found a high quality mask it was extremely expensive. My solution was 3D printing.
I tried Walmart, Target, Dollar general, and Spirit, but I did not find a mask that was agreeable. In Walmart the masks were too expensive. In Target they were of a bad quality. In Dollar General the masks were a horrible quality and made out of a weak material. The Spirit store had some very nice masks but they were completely overpriced.
I created a mask out of ABS from Sculptris within three hours of work on my computer, and one on sanding and filing.

Step 1: Eyes
On sculptris, you're going to use the drag tool and grab a side on the sphere and drag down.
Step 2: Nose
You'll do a similar step to this. using the grab tool you'll pull down two small holes for the nose so you can breathe out of the mask.
Step 3: Space for Your Head
Using the grab tool, pull the back of the sphere into the top and smooth it out so your head fits.
Step 4: Make a Design
I just put some dots on the eyes and mouth, but you could do whatever you want to it.
