Faerie Fashion Feature - Masked Mayhem

I've always loved the scenes in movies where the mysterious faerie creatures have a masked ball. Think Labyrinth where Sarah eats the peach and is whisked away to a huge ball masque where she dances with Jared, the Goblin king. I really love masks, also because they are so versatile. There are so many ways to make them and in so many styles fit for any faerie. With leaves for the nature faerie, bright red streaks painted on with face paint for the fire faerie, whimsical delicate silver swirls for the faerie Queen. So lets look at some of the most beautiful faerie masks.
