From where did the real Plague Doctor Masquerade Mask and Costume come?
Watching people wearing these bird beak masks and hats bodysuits remind of the Seventeenth Century when a different pandemic “Bubonic Plague” caused enormous harm. At that time, plague doctors used to dress similarly. They used to wear long leather suits that covered them entirely from head to toe.
How did the Plague Doctor Mask Costume help?
These suits had long beaks and glass eyes. The beak had small holes in it. Doctors used the elongated beak for storing some medicinal, aromatic materials. The fragrance of the ground spices such as camphor, mint, cloves, myrrh, or dried flowers like rose, or a vinegar sponge were used.
They believed that doing so will help to protect themselves and others from the infected air. At that time, those all, helped a lot in combatting the effects of the contagious miasma.
