    I have received so many compliments and it is just so cute! 10/10 will buy again!

    I love this mask! There's ear loops in addition to the ribbon so it's very secure, but still easy to move for a restaurant. It's perfect for when you want to dress up and stay safe at the same time. And with the holidays coming up and COVID not leaving anytime soon, I'm gonna get plenty of wear!

    Description said ready in 2-3 weeks, it didn’t ship out for 4. Mask itself is an amazing quality.

    This mask is a work of art. It affirms what I’ve already been saying all along...masks can be fashion and drama and elevate your look.
    There are secret ear loops which are a very thoughtful touch...they are too tight for me to use them (I have a full figured head) but it doesn’t matter as the mask stays in place perfectly. Thanks so much 🖤

    Beautiful! I like how it has ear loops for extra security. I tried tying the mask around my head without putting the loops over my ears, just out of curiosity, and it didn't stay up as well. So I think that having them is a great added feature.

    This mask is very high quality, which you can tell by its features. There are 2 different sets of elastic straps - one set for the ears, and one for the back of the head. The spikes are screwed into the fabric rather than just glued. And the fabric layer that touches your face is removable for easy washing. And of course, the mask looks beautiful and badass. The weight of the spikes might possibly get a little uncomfortable if you wear the mask for a very long time, but that's probably unavoidable, and it's a small price to pay for such an awesome mask.

    Mask is absolutely amazing. My only regret is not getting the straps instead. Since it is a bit heavy, the straps would hold it up better.

Corsets to Cosplay and Everything in Between

It began when her mom taught her to sew at age six. Now, Lauren Matesic of Castle Corsetry has been an award-winning designer for the past decade. After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and training at Farthingales Corsets, Lauren broke through as a designer for the world-famous Trashy Lingerie. There, she designed custom corset and costume orders for superstars such as Kim Kardashian, Julianne Hough, Holly Madison, and Rose McGowan, as well as some pieces for major award shows.

Since launching Castle Corsetry in 2009, Lauren has designed and built hundreds of corsets ranging from compact waist cinchers to full fledged waist-trainers in all materials from silk to leather and everything in between.

At Castle Corsetry, we only use the highest quality materials, and the European steel bones are the best on the market. Though she does create classic corsets, Lauren’s most popular designs are her pop-culture corsets featuring geek inspired designs from the nerd world’s favorite fandoms. Castle Corsetry occasionally vends at conventions, so follow her pages for the latest news!

In addition to her corsetry work, Lauren has designed and manufactured many custom costume orders, including her specialty in expertly tailored spandex suits. There’s nothing Lauren can’t do with fabrics, whether you need miniature costumes for puppets with her business partner at Fonco, to elaborate couture items for masquerade balls and weddings. Executing dozens of commissions for every major convention across the country, she has now made a name for herself in the cosplay world. You can see some of her designs on geek-culture celebrities like Team Unicorn, Ivy Doomkitty and Adrianne Curry!

There's no project beyond her skill and no design beyond her imagination. As a geeky girl herself, Lauren's enthusiasm for her work is what sets her apart. Her dedication and attention to detail makes her designs truly exceptional. There isn't a finer, quirkier costumer around.
