In addition to Halloween, another festive celebration synonymous with mask wearing is Mardi Gras or Carnival. Traditional celebrations of Mardi Gras involve parades, throwing beads, and dressing up in elaborate masks and costumes. At Anytime Costumes, we sell a number of Carnival masks, as well as hundreds of costumes and accessories suitable for Mardi Gras partying. Traditionally, Carnival masks cover the top half of the face, perhaps because it obscures identity while still revealing the general features and attractiveness of the face. Mardi Gras masks are festive and bright, decorated with feathers, beads, and other adornments.
But wearing a mask is not just for Halloween and Mardi Gras. Covering your face with a mask dates back for centuries. During the Golden Age of Greece, all of the roles in a play were assigned to men. Because they were forced to portray various characters of both sexes, these Greek thespians took to wearing dramatic masks to signal a change in mood. Not only did this accomplish the goal of alerting the audience to the mood shift, but it also challenged the actors to stretch their skills, as they could only use voice inflections and body language to get their feelings across.
Drama masks are still used as a symbol of the theatre today. Useful as decorations or for an authentic retelling of a Greek play, these masks are a must-have for anyone interested in the theatre. At AnytimeCostumes.com, you'll find beautiful drama masks at extraordinarily reasonable prices. Some of our higher end masks can even be hung up on the walls to lend ambiance to your home or local theatre.
