In addition to every else Iíve been trying to take care of for Burning Man, Iíve been making these zippered masks like crazy. I actually really love it: the fabric is mostly scraps from bigger projects, itís the perfect use for small bits of elastic, and the hand-stitching is a form of meditation in my otherwise hectic life.










They are all trimmed in fold-over elastic, and have adjustable elastic straps to keep them securely on. The zippers, like I mentioned, are sewn by hand with some bright embroidery thread. Lately Iíve been mixing up the zippers by cutting the head off one and putting it on the teeth of another, so that both parts are different colors. And now I canít stop doing it!







Trust me, I know, itís A LOT of masks!

You can see more of these masks on my website http://madebyjulianne.com/?p=2986

i am not sure of what i think about these.  i love - LOVE - your color choices and the circus flare/stripper-esque magic of it all, but i am fairly certain that i'd have no occasion to wear one.  but burning man - yes, absolutely.  awesome work.

That's funny.  I don't think they are creepy at all. I think they all look like Muppet surgeons

Well....all humans are scarier to me then Muppet's I supose.  Besides, I would rather see a person wearing that then a real boring surgical mask...boring scares me the most I guess Grin

These are adorable! I will keep my eye out for them on the playa - speaking of which are they purely for fashion, or do you think they will actually be functional and let you breathe and keep the dust out? I usually prefer just a bandana tied over my face, but I may have to make one of these and test it out!
