To perfectly compliment your evening attire, whether it be formal wear or a more fun themed costume, a Venetian mask can be that perfect accessory to finish off your look. Start the party off right by dressing the part!
The original Venetian Carnival mask is an icon that can be traced back to the ancient Romans. These beautifully crafted masks symbolize mystery, and a time filled with romance, elegant balls and royalty. In more modern times, these masks are used year round at various themed parties, during stage performances, and more. Each mask is designed with various characteristics meant to accentuate or exaggerate features of the face such as large eyes or a long nose. Often times, these masks are adorned with decorative feathers or sequins, sprinkling of glitter or even ribbon. Traditionally these masks are made out of leather to ensure their long lasting durability, however, the times have changed and masks are being crafted out of many different materials to keep the cost down for consumers.
