Firstly, excuse my morning mulletish hair, and yesterdays make up.

So my husband, out of hilarity, wore a surgical mask to work one day.  Then he complained that it was uncomfortable and inconvenient because he couldn't breath.  I guess thats the price you pay to prevent Swine Flu and Zombie Invasions.

Anyway, I made him his very own black Surgical Mask.  It could also be used as a Ninja mask.  Which I am sure is more sensible in the long run. Daily Ninja runs and what not.  I made one with an Umbrella Corp logo, I'll get pics up later.

Tute Included.


This is the finished mask.


This is the mask from various angles

AND NOW THE TUTE!

I used standard black quilting broadcloth, and the elastic was 1/8 inch flat black elastic.

Before you cut, measure from the bridge of your nose to an inch past your chin.  THat will be the length of your mask.  Then measure from the inside of each ear.  That will be the width.  These will be the measurements for your half circle's.  Measure your nose, and use that measurement to mark where your nose ends on the mask. Mark the mask.

From there, follow the tute below!

I guess I should add that this is not actually functional.

Hehe! Love it!  Can't let my DH see it or he'll be wanting a ninja mask and I don't think I'll be able to get him to take it off, lol!

My philosophy on face wear is that they have to eat some time.
