While people across the globe are being vaccinated, we will hopefully reach group immunity soon and the Corona crisis can finally end. We will have our freedom, social life, and peace of mind back! Also relevant: we can stop wearing mouth masks in public!

Let us capture today's challenging times by having a contest about those masks.

People got quite creative in the last 1.5 years with their mouth masks and even use customized them with patterns, branding, or jewelry. Are you one of those people?

100% protection
— 100% protection —

Your goal is to take a creative shot of a mouth mask, either worn by you, someone else, or, have the mask as a separate subject.

As always, it's important to vote and comment on all other entries. Valuable feedback is appreciated by everyone and gives them a chance to learn and improve!

Good luck!

The Vea J J mask. created by grasshopper1

My wife is a nurse. One day she bought a few masks from a Guatemalan neighbor who was selling these hand made masks to support her family back home. Within minutes after wearing it out in the public , she had people pointing and laughing at her. In fact my daughter and granddaughter were one of the first to laugh. Interesting point, not everyone can see it right away. The girls have now named it the "Vea J J" mask. Hints: It looks like a section of a women's anatomy. lol

I liked this mask, vagina or no vagina view and nice that your wife purchased it to support your neighbour.

Ahhh Olga..your sweet. . I can always count on you for a positive look on things. Yes she and others bought quite a few, they are beautifully designed. Plus I have backyard chickens and give her a dozen whenever I have enough. Thank you :)

I was shocked when I watched the photo contest in my bed. Terrible picture, I don't like it.

I'm not sure that's a "mask" as much as it is suffocating a baby.

Teecee avatarLevel 12

That's how I feel when I put a mask on like I am suffocating. Can't wait until we can all go out without!

This is really easier and more pleasant, but I wouldn't go near you for the next few weeks, certainly not.

Can't really tell with the heavy filtering. Looks more like the type of thing an anti-mask person would put out.

Satire that humorless Koolaid drinkers find too deep to accept. Geesh...sorry if I violated your sense of righteousness. Lighten up, it'll make your life fuller. :-D

kyricom avatarLevel 12
kyricom replied to MyMindsEye :

Your vernacular says all you need to say. Personally, the 589,000 dead in my country alone doesn't seem like something to lighten up about. And, if it is truly an attempt at satire, it would indicate you don't believe what the world's foremost experts universally say about wearing them, which of course is the prerogative of those who lack any empathy towards those families who have suffered so terribly. But, in the short run, the contest is for photos of masks, not the absence of masks.

Hope you can use them several times, how do you recommend their washing ?

MyMindsEye avatarLevel 9
MyMindsEye replied to Zizounai :

Yes.
This truly is the only product on the market that you will never have to purchase again!
Recommended care is daily washing with warm soap and water and gently pat dry. Apply your favorite lotion and your good to go.
The one shown in the image has some growth that can be easily removed with some razor work during the washing phase. The ladies/child version has a growth inhibiter built in at no extra charge. ;D
Cheers!
