50 Extreme Face Masks

From Nightmare Leather Masks to Head Armor Accessories

— May 16, 2010 — Fashion
These extreme face masks use just about anything and everything to cover up the human face, morphing it with animalistic features or even 24-karat gold.

Whether it's a fashion statement or an artistic controversial piece of work, these extreme face masks definitely give you something crazy to look at.

Implications - Lady Gaga has opened a new realm of fashion for consumers to express themselves by, allowing for the element of fantasy in fashion to take center stage. Thus, masks, outlandish jewelry and other costume-esque pieces are becoming more widely accepted than ever before, giving consumers the opportunity to express their individuality in a more confident, loud way that ensures they won't be ignored.
