Definition of a mask; a covering for all or part of the face, worn to conceal one's identity.

I don't know if it's because lately i've felt like hiding, curling up unto myself and pretending like i'm someone else.. but i have been noticing more and more masks; pictures, editorials, art, the pieces themselves. While in London recently i was also told the story of the Eyes Wide Shut anniversary party, and i guess it stuck with me. I'm thinking a Masquerade party for Halloween this year.. clothing mandatory (i mean really - there ARE so many beautiful masks out there, but some things really should just be left covered up!).

While researching for this post, i was amazed at how many different kinds of masks there are and what kind of emotions they stirred up inside of me... here i share a few with you.

  6. I think I'm a little bit like this too, I have a complete intfatuation with sunglasses and I'm always pretending around my friends, not quite fitting in, and being OTT, to try and be liked. But whatevs, I also loved the Gossip Girl, masked ball episode, Jenny is such a vixen!!!

  10. I went through this phase recently, when all around me, there were people wearing masks because of the swine Flu scare. Masks are intriguing, and some of these are outright scary.

  14. They're really interesting. I think I tend to be a little bit creeped out by images where the woman appears to be naked, but has some sort of constricting mask on - it seems like a comment on women as an object to me. That aside, I find most of the masks would be really awesome in the right context.
