17 Creative Masquerade Masks for Halloween

Thanks to the Phantom of the Opera and Edgar Allan Poe’s ‘The Red Masque of Death‘, masquerade balls are just creepy enough to be appropriate for Halloween. Even if you don’t throw an out-and-out masquerade, though, a Venetian-style mask is a great costume option, with or without a matching outfit.
