Hello lovelies,
as I promised, here is the second part of my previous festive holiday blog post. I will not talk about the inspiration behind the outfit this time, but the mask.
As you may have read in my previous post, I wrote about the lingerie and stage clothes, and now I want to talk about the masks. 
I am obsessed with lace masks, and anything that is connected to masquerade dances. Even one of my ultimate favourite movies is connected to the masquerade ball and costumes. It is Phantom of the Opera. I just love that movie and everything about it. The fact that it is a musical and that it contains masquerade ball scenes and amazing costumes is enough to buy me.
There is something so exciting and mysterious about wearing a mask, especially in the combination with corsets and gowns. 
There is also a short story named The Masque of the Red Death, by Edgar Allan Poe (also one of my favourite writers), that contains masquerade ball.
There you go, my short introduction about my passion for costumes and masks. Now it is time to show it through pictures.
