This costume is not for the faint of heart. The Plague Doctor Mask will have you fighting the black death this Halloween. Plague doctors wore these beak-like masks during the 14th century when fighting the Bubonic plague that swept through Europe during one of the worst pandemics in history. This realistic mask is true to form with a long nose and glasslike eye pieces. It was believed that the infection was spread through putrid air, so these masks were designed to protect doctors from contracting the disease by stuffing straw and perfume or flowers in the tip. Whether you dress as a traditional doctor with an overcoat and brim hat or add a flowing black robe for a more sinister twist, you’ll have a costume everyone is talking about.
Be sure to brush up on your history so you can really impress the ladies (and gentlemen) with your knowledge of the time period for which you are dressed. Or, just scare the pants off them and leave them wondering what the heck that thing was! Get medieval this Halloween with this distinctive medical disguise. You’ll start an epidemic of fear when you walk in wearing the Plague Doctor Mask.
