If you could see FeeFiFoFun Costume Concierge’s Mississauga office you might notice that I have more accessories and craft material than full costumes. That’s because in costume play just a single hat or mask can positively challenge a child’s imagination.
This was a spontaneous event taken after I’d spray painted a black mask in a metallic silver. My granddaughter put the mask on while in my office and I asked her what kind of bird she was. You can see here that she is thinking about the question, and starting to flap her wings, she finally sang, “I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know.”
I thought this photograph would make a welcome change in the YOU ARE LOVE campaign I am running for FeeFiFoFun Costume Concierge. Most of the photographs have staged lighting or natural light, butcConsidering the low light in my office and that my granddaughter was moving, I am extremely happy with the way this photograph turned out.
About the mask. I buy from wholesalers, but I also shop at pop-up departments and stores whose costume products only come out at Halloween. Some of the products are exclusive to a particular store. For example, I bought four black “Raven” masks last year at Value Village knowing that I might never see them again.
The masks are great in black, but since most people are wearing them at night or low light, I used the matte silver to help bring out some of the wonderful detail. I can see this mask with a light coloured dress or white tuxedo at a high school prom.
