Masquerade Ball is a 15th century feature of Carnival seasons, then extended into a public costume public festivities in Italy. Carnival of Venice is one of the famous festival known for its elaborate mask.
I have always dreamed of attending the Carnival of Venice, reading about the preparation and the grand costumes on the day of the event gives me goosebumps. However, dreams like that are far fetched. The good thing is that masquerade themed parties are very common these days, especially during holiday seasons, no wonder why this theme won the vote of most employees for our Company year end party.
Having this theme, I’ve made sure to prepare my mask, of course this is one of the most important part of the outfit. I skipped buying some ready to use one and opted to do the DIY mask using an old one I had in my closet.
So, if you are looking for ideas how to pimp some old mask this post is for you!
What you need?
1. A plane mask
3. Glue gun
4. Stick glue
7. Glitters (Optional)
8. LED light (for the crazy ones haha)
How to do it? It is as easy as 1,2,3:
1. Cut the flowers and start attaching on your mask using stick glue.
2. Continue until desired effect is achieved.
3. Add some glitters to polish the look
You may stop from here. But if you wanted to be extra daring and different you may look for LED lights, I got mine in one of the floral crown sold in SM Department Store.
4. I removed it from the floral crown and attached it in my mask.
Then viola! #LiwanagSaDilim
