A novelty amongst venetian masks are laser cut metal masks, reinventing the traditional venetian masks made from papier mache. These new luxury masks come in a wide variety of shapes and colors and are made from very thin, bendable but yet robust metal. Often, the more expensive ones are decorated with sparkling rhinestones, creating beautiful masks some see as wearable art because of their elegant design. Due to being very lightweight, these masks can be worn comfortably and are attached to the head by satin ties. Thus, those venetian style masks are perfect for any masquerade ball or high-end costume party.
In case you consider buying a metal masquerade mask, my advise is the following: Take care to not get a cheap masks of chinese origin, but a genuine venetian mask, as these are of better quality. Find a good source at: http://www.mask-shop.com/en/masquerade-masks-77/metal-masks-79/
