Boy, I love it when people offer to give my readers free stuff.
Josh from VIVO Masks recently dropped me a line about their products: They’re a retailer of authentic Venetian masquerade masks, hand-crafted (authentically) in Venice, Italy. And holy moly, they have some amazing stuff.
Their masks range from the familiar multicolored carnival masks, through Goblin King-esque masquerade pieces, to leather-and-spiked “erotic” selections. I’m particularly impressed with their laser-cut metal masks, like this delicate little bat and this neat skull. They even have a long-nosed plague doctor; not to mention completely astonishing confections like this. The site also has a blog with costume suggestions to accompany their masks, plus lots of party ideas.
And…they are offering a free mask to one lucky commenter! Whee!
The winner can choose any mask in their Under $50 section. They will ship free anywhere in the U.S.; if you’re overseas and would like to play you may do so, but you’ll have to pay for shipping (which according to their site will be $25).
To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post by Friday, August 2 about which mask you might choose if you win. One commenter will be chosen at random.
Update: The contest is over, and random.org returned the magic number 4, which means Sisifo wins the mask! (Note that since some people commented more than once or commented but didn’t wish to be included in the contest, this number is based on individual commenters, not comment number).
I shall email her with details forthwith. Thanks to everyone who played along!
