A wonderful good quality gift for my daughter. It came in time and was packaged well. She has worn it multiple times now with no issues. Great response when I told the company it arrived on time. Will do business again.

GORGEOUS! I wore it to a ball hosted by our campus' Queer and Trans Student Union and I could not count the number of compliments I got on the headpiece. It was blindingly stunning and I am so happy I decided to purchase it, it was definitely worth it and I WILL be finding more excuses to wear it!

This was honestly better than expected. Beautiful texture and sheen, and perfect shape. And it shipped out very quickly!! I created something pretty cool from this hat for my boyfriend for Christmas, and I think he's going to love it! Thank you :) 🙏

Amazing! I was worried I wouldn't get this in time for my bday party and messaged the seller. They were nice enough to get the product out the same day I ordered it to try to get it to me on time. I got it on time and it was beautiful! Super lightweight and fit my face perfectly!

Kayla

I'm in love with it, its phenomenal. Only down side is its gonna be a pain keeping this attached to my head while out at a festival or show, not much head space in the hat, bandana kinda helps but it tends to fall forward onto your face...

Bridget

The mask was perfect for my masquerade costume ! It was sturdy and beautiful ❤️. It did not look cheap like many other masquerade masks I have seen. Definitely highly recommend. I was nervous because it said girls mask in the description, but it fit my woman face 👌.

Angela

I had a great conversation with the seller which meant I got exactly what I wanted! It arrived quickly and looks even better than I’d hoped. I have a really neat skirt that I’m waiting on to arrive that I think this will be perfect with.

The Commedia dell'arte was a form of improvisational theater characterized by masked performers who portrayed stock characters with distinct personalities. One of these characters was Arlecchino, a mischievous and acrobatic servant known for his colorful costume and cunning tricks. Arlecchino's mask and costume later influenced the design of Jester masks.

The Venetian Carnival, which dates back to the 12th century, provided a festive backdrop for the emergence of Jester masks. During the carnival season, which typically lasted from December 26th to Shrove Tuesday, people from all walks of life would don masks and costumes to engage in revelry, disguise their identities, and indulge in various forms of entertainment.
