From Laura, Hamilton (July 2013)

From Geraldine, Queenstown (May 2010)
I came across whilst doing a last minute search for a mask I required for a staff work party.  I emailed Sally and asked if it was possible to purchase a mask I had seen on the website.  Her professionalism was outstanding as she asked me to email her a photo of my dress to see if the mask would match.  As it turned out - it didn't, so she said she would make one to match the dress.  I was a little unsure of this as once you see something like that on a website you do wonder if the custom made one will be as good, or meet your personal expectations.  I can honestly say that when Sally emailed the photo of my mask through to me I was blown away, the detail, the colours, were perfect.  All the details that I had requested (swirls, and a permanent stick rather than a tie around my head), were no problem for Sally to accommodate.  I would definitely recommend Sally to anyone wanting to purchase a mask, they are so intricate, so unique and so beautifully created.  The service was outstanding and I felt completely comfortable and trusted Sally to create a mask that would match my dress - actually she exceeded here!  I am very pleased that I found this website and can't wait to wear my mask this weekend, although it's too beautiful so I'm hoping I don't damage it!  Geraldine


From Latini, Auckland (May 2010)

Hi Sally, Thank you so much for the brilliant mask you created just for me!! Thanks for the speedy service and catering for personal preferences especially on such short notice. And also, THANKS for making the pickup easier for me too!! Very much appreciated! Got loads of comments about how professional my mask looked so I made sure to keep passing on your link to those interested. My kids (I teach a class of year 5&6 accelerated kids) absolutely LOVE it so it's on display in class for the week. Can't thank you enough, and wish you all the best with your talented gift and excellent customer service! Many blessings, Latini J
