My latest fashion statement: The Plague Suit
Now, do I wear it for the company picnic or the holiday party? Decisions, decisions.
Okay, this is actually a plague suit and you'll soon see them popping up at the classiest Chinese parties. Worn in the middle ages, the mask included red glass eyepieces, which were thought to make the wearer impervious to evil. Meanwhile, the beak of the mask was often filled with strongly aromatic herbs and spices to overpower the miasmas or “bad air” which was also thought to carry the plague.
On second thought, I might start wearing this on MUNI. Talk about "bad air."
