Anyone know where I can get some cheap black out masks? I'm looking to make some masks and need those for a base. I've tried to look online for them, but all I can find are those eye covers for sleeping. Anybody got any ideas?

Sorry if this is a topic posted already!

Dollar Tree had blank white masks last couple of years.

I don't want to say that I'm looking for a ski mask because that's not the case. They are like that in principle. The slip over the entire head and have a opening to see out of. The material isn't like a sock though. It's more like a stretchy material similar to spandex. I'm sure it's a random mix of materials, but it's very thin and form fitting. Kinda like something you would see a ninja wear. But anyways I'm looking for some to be used as a base for making masks for our haunted house. I'll cover them in several layers of latex and then design them to fit our needs. We have always referred to them as black out masks. Although when I search for them online I can't find what I'm looking for.

I think of the zentai masks and suits that people in China make, usually find a slew of styles and can custom order pretty much anything heres a few links-

I bought a suit once to be catwoman and I tried it on0 it had a over the head mask that I was going to cut holes out for my cat mask, I totally messed it up but before I cut out the holes you can see perfectly fine from within, but people could not see in. Theres the other mask option that has a more see through fabric covering eyeholes that might be much more clear to see from but people may see in your eyes with that one, I guess it depends on what your going for. Theres patterns for making "wrestling" masks, that show you the proper way to cut spandex for the same effect and probably loads cheaper than ordering fron China over ebay, just be warned that it can be just a few cuts too much to ruin it since spandex stretches, and you would have to start over. If I had to do it again, I would have just paid a lil extra to have them do the eyeholes for me. The zentai masks and suits have some fetish designs thrown in there, so be forwarned about searching the net for those, hehe.

I'm thinking that's exactly what I'm looking for! Thanks so much for your help.

I was thinking the same thing. I have a black-out mask I've been using for years. The front completely covers my face so all that can be seen (if at all) are the contours of my face. I can see well enough through it.

I would think you could take thin nylon fabric or large pantyhose (don't get the small or they'll think you're robbing a bank) and sew that across whatever mask you are looking to wear. In my case, it's attached to a hood.

try a store that sells hockey shirts, look for a black one and chop it up. its light material with lots of holes in it ,and you can see thru it very well. maybe it was a basketball shirt.... go to the sports store and start trying on all the shirts over your face LOL Iam serious!
