World Masks

For some reason, I have no idea why... I had a weird mask obsession this afternoon. There are so many cool, interesting and of course freaky masks from all different cultures. I stumbled across the website Masks of the World and had a ball looking at all the different styles of masks from different countries. These were a few of my favs and some odd ones that caught my eye.

Umm masks freak me out dude. I like the second one though, it's kinda cute, I want to pet it. Is that weird?

i agree masks are a tad freaky but they are intriguing to me too..and some of them just make me giggle.

i agree, i want to be the second one's friend...he is quite adorable.

Masks scare the CRAP out of me!! Even the Mardi Gras masks my sis gets! She loves them and they have all these jewels and stuff...but whenever she wears one on Halloween, all I can think of are those masked crazy dudes on 'A Clockwork Orange'!! AHHH!!!
