Luchadores sewing protective face masks from Lucha Libre masks may be my new favorite thing.
We are seeing an increasing need for protective face coverings as we try to get all of this under control. It’s everywhere from talk about what makes the best face mask pattern to even tips for how to make a face mask out of a t-shirt without any sewing.
But this is the first I’ve seen the suggestion to create these personal protection pieces out of Lucha Libre costuming.
Protective Face Mask From Lucha Libre Masks
With the pause on the competition circuit in Mexico, we’re seeing Lucha Libre costumes being turned into protective face masks to combat the spread of Corona.
And frankly, I am in love.
What makes it even better is that we have the famous wrestlers making these fabulous creations themselves!
The visual of seeing the full faced luchador at the sewing machine does something to my heart.
