Up till now, we are pretty serious about face masks. Save for a couple of ‘fun’ varieties (like this and this), most of what we introduced here are, you know, rather run-of-the-mill face mask. Nothing head-turning or fun.
Created by Japanese artist Takahiro Shibata, who is an animator by trade, the face mask looks like a bowl of ramen. Well, at least, half a bowl. The rest of the bowl is, presumably, shoved into the wearer’s face.
I guess, Shibata-san does share our sentiment of ‘if you are going wear a mask, why not make it fun’. And fun is the best word to describe this one-of-a-kind face mask.
Resembling a bowl of ramen is just half the fun. The other half of the fun is how the mask make a painful situation of wearing mask for a bespectacled person.
When worn by a person wearing glasses, the inevitable fogging up of glasses make the mask looks like a steaming, hot (half) bowl of ramen. Clever!
