I get my masks from all over (I have quite a few from years of collecting). But if you're interested in specific masks, just let me know which ones you're specifically interested in and I might be able to point you in the right direction ;)

As for the jackets, they're all just form my personal collection. I go to a lot of thrift stores/second-hand shops and garage sales and find awesome jackets (sometimes I purchase them for myself, sometimes I purchase them specifically for photo shoots). It's all a matter of patience and hunting :) I have a thing for colors and textures, so I'm always on the lookout for items that will make for an interesting photo and/or art piece.

We've been having a lot of yard sales lately. You always see the signs. However, I'm usually too lazy to actually track down where the signs are pointing to. I'll have to check more of them out. As for the one second-hand store we have within a fifteen mile radius of my house (its in the same town as my college so eh)it has a lot of wonderful old-timey things, however we are veeerrry rural so a lot of cowboy things. Also,it's hard to find, even for me, I've been there so many times. And thanks for always replying, I do enjoy our chats. Also I like those animal masks, they're pretty neat. ;)

Yes, I know what you mean. It takes a lot of work to organize your day around traveling to and from yard and garage sales =P But in the end, the effort is worth it (most of the time). Ahhh, and sorry about your local second-hand shop :noes: I personally wouldn't see much use for cowboy items :giggle: someone might though!

Oooh, I can't wait to see it!! :nod: Weird, after reading some of the comments (I do that sometimes=D), I thought the same thing when I saw the term "little monsters." It's a Gaga term, what she calls her fan base. I was a little monster once.:blushes: Not much anymore.:no: I'm not as impressionable as I once was.=D Being Irish, and a gypsy no less, I grew up mostly on "roots" style music whether it be Irish or American folk balladeers. It's like I was so happy when Mumford and sons won at the Grammies. Weren't you?:dance: They deserved it. I have all their music!! ...Anyway I digress.:giggle: You can call me a little monster anytime. Grrrr...=D

It is a Plague mask, like the masks worn by Plague Doctors during the 14th century in Europe during The Black Death (or Bubonic Plague).

'little monsters' as in Lady Gaga's name for her fans :b
like at first when i saw 'Little Monsters', Gaga was the first thing that came to mind. But thank Goodness its not. I dislike her fan community

oooh. Ok. Well, I wasn't aware of that. I don't follow her, her music or her fans involvment in her movements. I'm not a fan of her music, it just kind of annoys me to no end.

But thanks for the info ;)

Pretty much, those were masks doctors wore in the Rennaissance to protect them from the plague.
