Masquerade

I made this mask 8 or 9 years ago, for Halloween. First I tore newspaper into tiny strips and soaked it in paste. Then I covered my face in Vaseline and layered it with the paper. Then I let it dry for a while. After I pulled it off I built it up, painted it, added feathers and mirrors, and presto! Supergay! It reminds me of my Phantom mirror mask from college. I loved the way that the spotlight glanced off of the tiny mirrors in that mask, shooting beams of light throughout the auditorium.
