Customer Reviews

Loved our masks! Even though they didn’t have the matching women’s mask, they suggested a beautiful replacement. We loved them for our masquerade and they were surprisingly comfortable! The quality is incredible. I would definitely order from the seller again.

My husband and I wore these for our school’s gala fundraiser with a masquerade theme. They were not only beautiful but lightweight and very comfortable to wear.

Jennifer Madden

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!

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. The seller provided very quick turnaround, and I was so pleased to receive it a day before I expected it to arrive. It’s so pretty that I’m going to find somewhere in my home to use it as decor now that my event is over. Thank you so much!


Amazing to work with. I sent a picture and they matched my daughters dress. Love it! Fast shipping! Great communication!
