The Carnival of Venice is celebrated annually and always ends on the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, or on Mardi Gras. These spectacular festivals always go out with a bang - literally. Our Masquerade Masks will make you look like you stepped off the streets of Italy.

Some of the masks that you'll see in this section are in what's called the bauta style, which will cover the entire face. The Columbina style is a half-mask that can strap on with a band of elastic, ribbon, or get held up to the face via handheld stick. This type of face covering is often used at masquerade parties. There is a multitude of other kinds of facial coverings, but the above two, along with the beaked plague doctor disguise, are the most popular.
