Unique Hand-Decorated Masks

PLEASE NOTE:  Apologies - I will be unavailable between 30th July and 16th August 2018. Sorry but I won't be able to supply masks during that time.
I am a mask artisan and have gathered my inspiration from my own creative energy, as well as from research visits to Venice where I come home armed with new ideas, techniques and materials.


For many years I have specialised in creating one-off unique hand-decorated masks made to order to a specific theme and colour scheme, to match an outfit.


Nowadays, due to limited stock of the bases I use for my hand-shaped masks (the machine that created them, here in NZ, has now been decommissioned), I am focussing on offering a small range of beautiful METAL FILIGREE and LACE masks. They are black with crystals, and I can also add colour tones, a hint of gold or silver, feathers and various embellishments to personalise the mask for you and make it completely unique.



- If you are after a beautiful metal filigree mask - robust yet delicate - click here

- Check the Lace masks - they are flexible and a great budget option. 
- Take a look at the Showcase page for lots of inspiration and ideas

- I can still create a limited number of hand-shaped masks so if you have a special request for a specific mask (i.e. character, themed) and are happy to give me creative licence to create a special mask for you, I'm more than happy to take on a commission. Images are helpful.


If you are short of time and need a mask - ring me pronto on 021 480323!  I hope to be able to help you!

Also, do check TradeMe as occasionally I put masks for sale there - check the listings for Parasal (my Trade Me username).


I'm very happy to create and ship international orders using Paypal, but please contact me as soon as possible as we need to take postage time into account, as well as the creation process.

RING OR EMAIL ME AT ANY TIME and I will aim to help.   sally@masquerade.co.nz or 021 480323

Check the Metal Filigree Masks page for STUNNING masks made of laser cut metal with intricate "lace" patterns and crystals.  I import these ... each mask is hand selected and I have limited stock which sells quickly.  They are absolutely gorgeous and go with any outfit.  Intricate, elegant and lovely ... here's a taste ... (apologies, it's hard to capture the sparkle of the crystals and decadence these masks have in real life). I will advise when new shipments arrive - but as I say, these masks sell quickly and are not widely available.  I am thrilled to be able to offer these truly fantastic masks, alongside my own creations.

L to R:  Stellaria; Florentine; Regina (with clear crystals)


Check the Lace Masks page for a small range of GORGEOUS masks made of embroidered lace.  These masks come with crystals and are soft and flexible, slightly stiffened to contour to your face, and very light and comfortable.  They look fabulous and are also very affordable. I can add colour tones and other embellishments if you wish.

Because they are flexible, they can be worn over spectacles, if you need to wear glasses to see!

I also have lace masks in Black, White and Red as below - also on the Lace Masks page ($15) and can embellish these bases for an extra $5.

Metal Filigree Masks - stunning laser-cut metal masks, intricate and gorgeous

The Mask Prices and How to Order pages are important ones - these give you full details about PRICING and how to go about ORDERING your unique mask.

The Design Options page will give you lots of ideas.

Prices range from approx. $35 upwards, depending upon the complexity of the mask. More elaborate masks are dearer. The really ornate masks are done in several stages, building up texture first, then painting and then intricately embellishing the mask to create a unique piece of art, so these are more expensive. But as a general rule, you'll get a superb female mask with embellishments for around $55-$60.

Prices are plus postage.
