The Art of Darkness

Super-Terrific Giveaway Thing

September 5th, 2016 by Cobwebs

Teschio MaskOh boy, you guys; have I got a treat for you.

A couple of years ago the nice people at VIVO masks sponsored a giveaway with my readers, and they recently contacted me to ask if I’d like to do it again. Hells, yeah; their stuff is awesome.

Last time we arranged with them to ship directly to the winner, so I never got my hands on the mask. This time they sent it to me to ship out, which means I can comment more specifically on the quality of the mask and I can open up the giveaway to overseas readers.

The mask they’re giving away is the Teschio Black, a metal masquerade piece in the shape of a skull. It’s an absolutely gorgeous piece, and is perfect for the goth set. I could imagine designing a whole cosplay outfit around this mask.

VIVO has hundreds of different styles, all handmade in Italy, and they ship worldwide. Given the quality, the prices are surprisingly reasonable. Their Masquerade Blog is pretty neat, too; they have a lot of suggestions for things like decorating for Halloween.

If you’d like to enter to win this mask, just leave a comment on this post by Friday, September 16. A winner will be chosen at random.

Thanks again to VIVO for the lovely giveaway opportunity!


Random NumberThe contest is over and spat back the magic number 10, which means Mim is the proud owner of the mask. I shall snail-mail it to her forthwith.

Thanks to everyone who played along!
