By Tracy Narvaez Subscribe to RSS | November 28th 2011 | Views:

People know that masquerade is used to define someone who is trying to hide their identity or be secretive. The masquerade masks date back to the twelfth century. It was used in the Venetian carnival to hide a persons identity. Much of the time wealthy socials would have had consequences for socializing with commoners but while wearing this mask they had much more freedom.

These celebrations were mainly thrown for the rich and wealthy of the time. They used the masks to disguise themselves because if they wanted to socialize with a lower class person they would not receive the repercussions for such an act. As the wealthy society started to fall so did the use of these.

Some of the more wealthy did not approve of them because they thought it was degrading to be socializing with people of a lower status than they were. They became like a game, people would use them to make illegal or secret financial transactions as well as sexual favors. No one knew because the people behind the masks were anonymous to everyone else.

There were several thousands of designs, the person wearing it could choose the theme of what they would like to portray. With all of the design there are just four main types. These main types all have there positives and negatives to wearing them. Men and women alike could choose what they wanted their identity to be.

The four types are full face, head, half face and the stick design. The full face design covered the entire face and was very hard for the operator to function. There were two holes cut out for the eyes but only some had a mouth hole. The ones that did not have a mouth hole would leave the person behind the masks voice muffled, and the user could not eat or drink without removing the entire mask.

The head design resembled a helmet, it was worn on top of the head. This design was more elegant of a style. Many accessories could be added to enhance the look. It was difficult to eat or drink with this type of design.

The head mask looked similar to a helmet. It was put on the head and worn as a single piece. This style looked more elegant because hair accessories could be used to complete the look. This type was also impractical because eating and drinking was very difficult.

The head mask was placed on the top of the head and resembled a helmet. Many accessories can be used to make this piece look more luxurious and complete. The only downfall is that you could not eat or drink while wearing it.

This fun act of hidden identity was popular long ago and has returned to modern times and is just as popular. Today, these masquerade masks can be purchased at any type of store or online. Most of these are inexpensive and more modern looking. The mask itself stand for mystery and most everyone likes a good mystery.
