How to wear a masquerade mask with glasses

Posted on March 07, 2014 by Vivo Masks | 3 Comments

We’re often asked which masquerade masks will work for people who wear glasses. It’s a great question, and there are actually a couple options for you.

1. Pick a mask that fits

When picking a mask, the best starting point is to find a mask with more space for your eyes, or a mask that has room for your glasses underneath. Some examples we could find that might work:

Some of those, your glasses could fit underneath without it looking weird. And some, you could put the glasses through the eye holes.

2. Alter your mask

Another option is to alter your mask. There are two kinds of customizations you can make:

1. With leather masks, you can custom cut the eye holes to fit your glasses. With any leather mask, you could cut the eye holes a bit bigger.

2. With almost any mask, you can attach pieces of foam to its inside so it sits an inch or so in front of your face leaving room for your glasses. You can do this by aligning your mask with your glasses (on a table). cutting a piece of foam into four strips of equal length, then arranging the foam on the back of the mask around the edges of the glasses (on your temples and cheekbones).

Once you get the foam in a comfortable position, you can attach the foam to the mask using rubber cement.

We hope this helps.

Hi, super late to the party, but if anyone is checking comments, what type of foam would you recommend?
