This collection of Niek Pulles masks is a disguise, but it looks like an everyday piece in Lady Gaga's wardrobe. Pulles is a young, up-and-coming designer based in the Netherlands. His mask creations are designed for festivities where everyone can trade in their mundane identity for a night, looking like a mix between Star Wars characters and Spartan warriors.

They're assembled with old scrap toys and transformed into modern face wear. Festivals like the infamous Mardi Gras always end with trash-filled streets, but these Niek Pulles masks are designed so that party-goers can be rid of guilt when ridding themselves of their masks, as they are biodegradable.

Pulles is one of three artists exhibited at the Temporary Nomads Particles in the Netherlands.
