So I'm fairly new to the world circus skills and the like. The main issue is I am incredibly shy in public to the point I could not perform in front of anyone, but have been banned from practising in or near my home by my family. I have an artist friend who has offered to help me make a mask in the hopes this will help me gain the courage to perform in public.

The main issue we are having is I wear glasses with large-ish frames, so most shop bought masks do not fit well over them. One ideas we have had are a Plague Doctor mask, as they normaly have a slightly domed forehead that would lift it away from my eyes enough to accomadate my glasses. Another idea we have been toying with is finding a pair of goggles that fit over my glasses, and using paper mache, or something simular to to build the face using them as a base.

Do any of you have any other ideas or better suggestions?

Try just paint your face with is relatively "minor" masking but help me with courage and others too

Face paint is a great idea. Or you can use a contact lense if that doesn't bother you. I was helping a buddy installing the new brake pads and fender flares on his truck when his sister came from a stage performance. As a teenager, she's very shy but slowly gaining confidence. She got this good make up artist that transform her really good.
