The Bubonic Plague, or Black Death, ravaged Europe and Eurasia for centuries, becoming most prevalent throughout the medieval times. It's symptoms meant certain death, and during a time when the miasma theory of disease was accepted as accurate, diseases were very poorly understood. And who would be misguided enough to expose themselves to a disease that was known for it's nearly 0% chance of survival? None other than your friendly neighborhood plague doctor, of course!

Own a piece of medical history with this Plague Doctor mask in pristine white! Revered as the prototype for the modern gas mask, the doctors of the plague would fill these beaks with herbs and spices to ward of the "evil air" from the plague victims. Were they on the right track? For the most part, yeah. Did it work? Not really. Luckily for the doctors, their ridiculously warm and heavy cloak and gloves, as well as their extreme aversion to any physical contact with their patients meant that they were almost sort of safe from the disease.

This mask is made from vegetable tanned top grain leather of about 6 oz. thickness, which has been water hardened to help maintain it's shape. It is painted using white acrylic paint, which also gives the mask resistance to moisture. It is sewn together using waxed thread and artificial sinew. The lenses are red acrylic, and are UV blocking.

The strap utilizes snaps, and will fit the vast majority of adult and children heads. The straps can be rotated to fit your head in the most comfortable way possible for you.

Perfect for that masquerade party next weekend, for a Halloween costume, or for general creepiness to assist you in getting those dang neighborhood kids to leave your petunia garden alone.

Please allow 1-2 weeks for the mask to ship.
