From performance to ritual, the functional to the fashionable, masks hold a certain crepuscular character. And with Halloween right around the corner, what better way to get excited about the witching hour than ogling a little Etsy mask goodness? While crafting a mask can of course be an elaborate undertaking, it can also be one of the simplest and most compelling ways to alter appearance. What masks might you be making this season? Clockwise from top left: great horned owl mask; little rabbit mask; birch bark mask; leather rabbit mask; white-tailed deer mask; sugar skull mask; speckled gray beardling mask; lacy leaf art nouveau mask.
