A one of a kind green crushed velvet upcycled mask for a forest nymph, inspired by the "Secret Garden" theme for the Asheville Mardi Gras Parade 2024. Handmade from repurposed materials like kitchen trash, clothing, yarn, and wreaths, this lusciously whimsical mask features tiny faux blue flowers hidden among a variety of shiny and furry green leaves. A soft and metallic olive netting accentuates the eyes, inside and out. The eye openings are large so you won't miss a thing. The nose is long, typical of Venetian Carnival masks, allowing you to easily slide the mask onto your forehead if you want to show your face. A custom-sized elastic headband provides a hands-free. secure, and comfortable fit.
