Posted: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?
