Why am I doing this?

(I don’t care – take me to the mall!)

The global Covid-19 pandemic has brought about a whole new daily necessity. It used to be that when I left the house, I would grab my keys, wallet and cell phone. Today, a face mask and hand sanitizer are the brand new necessities. Of course now, depending on how much I leave the house, a more too common annoyance is not having a clean mask.

While browsing twitter, I was inspired by one of the accounts I followed. @ElleArmageddon titled their account “the apocalypse, but fashion 🦝” which I took inspiration from. I determined that I wanted to find the most fashionable masks possible to enjoy wearing out of the house. I discovered that indeed there were some fashionable masks out there, but they were difficult to find.

My mask fashion inspiration – Twitter: @ElleArmageddon – Blog: http://blog.totallynotmalware.net/

My first attempt at finding masks was to purchase the neck gaiter style from a cyberpunk/hacker style retailer. I received another gaiter from a conference that I attended as well. I loved what I received but shortly after getting them, I was disheartened by the studies saying they were not as effective as traditional style masks. For this reason, I will be focusing helping you find the more effective, traditional style masks.

Now for my disclaimers: I still love and wear my gaiters, but typically only for the style factor and always over a traditional style mask. Keep in mind also that while a vented mask may protect you, it can be dangerous to those around you as it provides no filtration on the exhale. You may be denied entry to certain venues with a vented mask.

I hope that my work to compile the list below will help you find a mask to suit your personal style. I have personally curated this list of brands below because I felt that they offered a style or value that others did not. I have personally purchased a few of these products and have listed them in the order that I found them. There are so many to choose from and even so many more that I couldn’t list below. If you have a favorite that I haven’t listed, please send me an email and let me know! I am also looking for any Etsy sellers that would like their store listed as well.

Please note that I am not earning ANY commissions from these sites, I am not affiliated with the sellers, nor do I wish to be. It is actually costing me money to personally host this site. I only wish to help people who have a genuine desire to want to be protected and to protect others.

Lastly, if you appreciate what I’ve done here, please take a moment to check out my Twitch and Youtube channels. I’m not trying to be a professional streamer or Youtuber, but I am just genuinely enjoying some games and want to share that with you. You can find links to my Youtube and Twitch channels elsewhere on my site. I would really appreciate you following me on Twitch and subscribing to my Youtube channel. Neither will cost you anything and it might be fun!
