Sometimes, you don't want to cover up your entire face when you are heading to a costume or theme party. Your face is way too pretty to conceal, and some characters and costumes only require half masks anyway. So be sure to check out our amazing collection of half masks for your next Halloween event or theme party. One of the most famous half masks of all time, and perhaps the most recognizable, is the white half mask from the play, The Phantom of the Opera. Without that mask, the Phantom costume is not complete. Also, half masks are popular for masquerade balls and Mardi Gras parties, popularized by the Carnival of Venice.
Venetian masks are some of the earliest known half masks, and they come in many different colors and styles – a few are even decorated with feathers. Some of the items in this category are plain and customizable, while others are colorful and extremely intricate. These designs will provide you with a unique look and they will undoubtedly help you stand out from the crowd. The benefits of wearing a half mask is that you still get to portray whatever character you want, and your face won't be as uncomfortable and hot as it would be if your mask was full. Sometimes, full masks make your head feel trapped and you end up taking them off anyway. With half masks, people usually keep them on and don't complain.
