Mask in a Locally Made Work of Art

"As in Venice, masks are synonymous with our city. In fact, 'masking' is what you do on Mardi Gras day and nearly a dozen other times throughout the year. There are plenty of places in New Orleans to buy something cute (and cheap) to cover your face. But Mary Behlar's Maskarade in the Quarter is the BEST place to find what just may be your most cherished memento from the Big Easy. Every mask is hand-made locally. And, not only will it look great ON you, it will impress your friends at home when you share it as the handmade work of art you discovered in New Orleans." - Stephen Young
