Good for you! I'm still considering putting fangs on one with a Sharpie.

Mine are coming from 3 different places. Amazon, a friend of my wife and a tv costume maker my wife knows which are being made based on the size of my face.

I dont have high expectations for the amazon ones but reviews were okay so maybe ill be surprised.

Jersey yes going to ON for almost 2 months although not in the Toronto area.

That’s great. A change of scenery will do you good. Good luck.

I like that idea! I'm figuring that if these are going to be a long term part of the horizon there should be some real characterful ones coming up.

Costco in the States are selling a bag of three washable masks in different colors for $10, I saw on some kind of news feed this morning.

I've got about a dozen masks for myself and 5 or so for OH, hand made, from a store in Halifax ........ they use Japanese cotton kimono material. Lovely colours and designs. They are double layer material, some reversible, and, of course, washable

At the moment, they are selling them at cost ........... $5 + tax + postage ....... but thye may go up slightly.

I've decided masks are going to be a fashion accessory in the coming months!

I just noticed two things about the Alien mask. There's a tail and it looks like your glasses may not steam up!

Bristol ..... I've found that my glasses don't steam up if I make sure the bottom of the frame is over the top edge of the mask.

One problem I had not thought of, because it doesn't concern me at the moment, has been a topic on another site that I'm on ............

People who have hearing aids and wear glasses cannot also use the elastic round their ears.

I didn't make a note of the site, but apparently there is a site where you can a sort of "extensor" for the mask ....... it buttons around the two elastics at the back of your head.

If anyone is having this problem, I'll go back and try to find the link to where you can buy them, and what those who have bought them think.

Try searching your local buy and sell sites for "neck savers" or "ear savers".

On the ear savers - smart folk are printing them out of plastic on their 3D printers. The easier way I'm told is a ribbon with a couple of buttons sewn on each end. You loop the mask elastic around the buttons and the ribbon goes around the back of your head.

That's how I line them up.
But it's really only been a problem on getting into a car and in a small room at an eye clinic. Supermarket was okay
