One of my friends has a little girl that has been doing a few pageants for the past couple of years.  She has one coming up next Saturday that has a theme of Black & White Masquerade.  She is supposed to wear all black and white and have a masquerade mask.  My friend has been shopping for dresses and she thinks she and her daughter have found the one they want.  I offered to make a mask to go with it.

So Friday afternoon I went to the craft store and bought the mask and whatever I thought could be used to make it with.  I laid it all out on the table along with all my jewelry making supplies.

After deliberating what all to put on it I started with the eyes…some black sequins with a little “bling” in the middle.

I added some charms to the beads hanging from it that she might like.  The one charm says “Be Fabulous” on one side and on the other it says “Why be Normal?” This fits the little girl perfectly.  🙂

So now I’ve added all the feathers, beads, ribbon, etc that I thought would look good.

I had to make the stick to use to hold the mask and I think it came out pretty good.  So here’s the final finished product!  Whew!  All done!
