The CDC is still recommending face masks for the public, and we’re ready to comply… but with style! If you’re a wannabe Princess or a Disney Fan in general, these Disney inspired face mask options are infused with the Happiest Place on Earth! In place of a disposable mask, these cloth face options are the latest Disney accessory to hit the consumer market. Filled with fun and iconic characters, these printed cotton are a guideline-following option for Parks fans all over.
Disney Inspired Facemasks
Ambrie, the LulaRoe-like leggings company, has unlicensed prints and character smiles on face masks for sale. They are extremely pricy as masks go, coming in at $18 each. Once the items are pleated, the images are squashed, so perhaps choose something with an allover print to get a bang for your large buck. There is also no nose wire here, but it makes a good cover for a mask with a wire already in it, such as a standard surgical mask.
Fortunately for us, there are a bunch of folks that can sew! With there being quite the run on woven cotton, elastic and sewing machines, hiring another crafter to stitch you an item is resourceful and helps to stimulate the economy. Choose some actually licensed Disney fabric turned mask by a seller on Etsy like QuiltCraftCrochet. Choose a well-crafted mask that has either a place for a filter or layers of washable interfacing. Pay attention to elastic and tie options. Those that go over the head as opposed to hooking onto ears often require lots of alterations and folks have different sized heads. Try to shop smartly for your own body.
Make Your Own Disney Inspired Face Mask With Your Fabric
This video offers FREE patterns in various sizes for your friends and family. If you have extra Disney fabric lying around (or an old Disney shirt) get cutting and make your own mask. It can easily be modified to have ties on the side if you are short on elastic. Use something “grippy” like old shoelaces or grosgrain ribbon if you choose to opt for ties.
Getting Back to the Disney Parks
Before we all head back to Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland, we’ll have to see what guidelines they put forth. Shanghai is still testing social distancing measures as well as parade protocol, and Bob Iger has been placed on the California Task Force as they figure the next steps to reopen the state, as well as Disneyland Resort.
If face masks are a requirement for Cast Members, Guests, or Crew back at the Happiest Place on Earth, these options may be something you will want to look at.
