ACS Masquerade Ball


Over the weekend, John and I went to the American Cancer Society's black and white masquerade ball.  It was in a beautiful space and had amazing food.  It was a great fundraiser, and I wanted to share some pictures and how I made my mask with you!

To make your own mask, you will need:
  • A plain, paper mask
  • Pencil
  • Puffy paint
  • Spray paint (I used both a black glossy paint and a silver glitter paint)
Draw your design
Puffy paint over the design and allow to dry completely

Spray paint the mask on a protected surface and allow to dry
Then, I added layer after layer of glitter spray paint, creating an ombre effect toward the edges.  Finally, simply string on some elastic, and you're done!
Dress: Laundry by Design
Jewelry: Ann Taylor
John took a slightly different approach to the masquerade... :)
