I absolutely love my fascinator! It was perfect for the Derby Party. I received so many compliments. I requested customization, Lanai helped me choose the right color, and we added netting. It came out so beautiful 😍!

My mask was so much more beautiful than I ever imagined it would be. I only wish I had more masquerade galas to attend! I received several compliments on it. It was comfortable to wear all evening.

This was the perfect piece for my Ren Fair costume! It was exactly what I hoped for and tied the whole outfit together. I have gotten countless compliments on it. It's beautifully crafted and so unique. It even hosted a friendly snek I met at the Ren Fair!

My mask was absolutely perfect! I had a tight turnaround time, but the shop was super responsive and accommodating and the mask arrived with plenty of time to spare. I sent photos of my dress and they made me a mask that coordinated beautifully. I even came in second in the best dressed contest! Thank you so much!

Frequently Asked Questions

What do masquerade ball masks symbolize?

Masquerade ball masks symbolize mystery, intrigue, and anonymity. Concealing one's identity behind a mask allows people to take on different personas and characteristics at a masquerade event.

What is the purpose of the masques at the masquerade?

The purpose of wearing masks at a masquerade ball is to hide one's identity and social status, allowing people to mingle and interact without preconceptions. It creates a sense of mystery and excitement. The masquerade mask is key to setting the tone and atmosphere of the event.

What kind of costumes and outfits do you wear with a masquerade mask?

Costumes worn to a masquerade ball are typically elegant and ornate to match the lavish nature of a masquerade. Common options include ball gowns, suits, cocktail dresses, and costumes that complement the style of mask - such as an eye mask matched with historic-inspired gowns and capes. Extravagant accessories like feathers, capes, hats, gloves, and jewelry take the outfit to the next level.

What does a black masquerade mask symbolize?

A black masquerade mask symbolizes elegance, mystery, and sophistication. 

The color black evokes a sense of drama and intrigue when used in a masquerade mask. It is considered more formal and elegant than brightly colored masks.

Black masks allow the wearer to channel their inner mysterious persona. The concealment of one's face behind a dark, obscure mask provides anonymity and secrecy to one's identity.

In masquerade balls and Venetian carnivals, a black mask historically signaled someone had a higher social status or wealth. Black velvet and lace masks were expensive materials, only affordable to nobility and upper classes.

Today, black remains a popular choice for formal masquerade events. Both men and women select black masks in materials ranging from lace to satin when they want to coordinate with sophisticated attire for an evening affair or gala. It suggests the wearer has an elevated, elite presence in the room during the masquerade celebration.

How were the traditional Venetian masks made?

Traditional Venetian masks were carefully handcrafted, taking hours, sometimes days, to reach the desired perfection. Artisans would first mold the mask in clay, and after hardening, they would cover it in a special type of paper and glue mix. As the layers built up, the mask became harder and stronger. Once dried thoroughly, the delicate process of decoration began.

They would often brush the base coat, commonly white or black, onto the mask. Then, intricate details would be added using silver leaf, gold leaf, or other metallic details. Complementing costumes and wigs were often designed to match the mask. Beautiful feathers, vibrant gemstones, and intricate lace details often completed the decor for the ultimate theatrical effect.
