Karen Michele Burns (klibrary) | 1792 comments Can mask be spelled "masque" as in
Masque of the Red Death?

There's a paperback with a mask on the cover, but I'll be getting it from the library, so I'm not sure if they have that copy.

A surgeon's mask is a used in a profession capacity, not to conceal, sorry, it doesn't work.

Meagan (meaganmarble) | 316 comments So this is a kind of non traditional mask, but the paper is being used to cover up their identities to fit the technical definition of a mask. Would you accept this One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus

The paper is covering the faces, but it isn't being worn-no eye holes and there doesn't seem to be anything holding it in place. Sorry, it doesn't work.

Black Science, Vol. 7 Extinction Is the Rule by Rick Remender

I believe the large five-eyed, six-armed gentleman in the upper left corner of the cover is wearing a black cloth mask in the style of Zorro (if Zorro were large, five-eyed and six-armed).

Thanks!
