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.

WOW this mask is SO COOL. it shipped the day after I placed the order despite being custom, which was awesome. I assume I'm lucky and they had my color choices made already though! It fits good. The beak came a little bent, but that can be fixed no problem. I love it.

Mask turned out great! Seller accommodated my needs for the entire mask to have Filigree.

Kayla

Seller is very prompt at addressing questions and the quality of the mask is top notch. I bought this as part of my Halloween costume and won scariest costume at a costume contest!

Dev

The mask was remarkable well made, stitched throughout, sturdy workmanship and surprising craftsmanship for a less expensive mask. This was a purchase for a child’s costume but would accommodate ANY adult with the well made adjustable straps. There was no evidence of glue or skimping on workmanship. The material was man-made but it was convincingly leather as a mask. the touches of “swirl” pattern around the lower edges of the mask softened the look of the mask perfectly for the look my Dr. Plague was going for. I’d give this merchant a high 🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆. Of course, with any mask vision is a bit awkward but maybe we could have adjusted a little better before leaving the house. 🤷🏼‍♀️ The straps allowed it so it was probably poor planning by mama.

Amazing mask for halloween, cant wait to go

GoatScape

This mask arrived just as pictured, and beautiful! It took some adjusting to be able to see out of well and it got stuffy in there, but it’s exactly what I needed.

Cierra

Bought this for my daughter. Boy did she love it. When we opened it and saw just how beautiful it was, we were so happy that we chose it. Thank you so much.

Bety

It’s perfect! Well crafted, and the filigree is a really nice touch. It arrived quickly as well.
