Architect India Aspin has designed a range of animal face masks aimed at party goers marketed under the name of Zoofold.
“I was inspired to design animal heads after hand-making a pair of fabric fox outfits for a festival back in 2010,” Apsin said.
“I discovered that I had both the instinctive eye and inventiveness for costume craft but, as an architect, was compelled to use my skills in architectural design and draftsmanship, turning to folding printed card as a medium instead of fabric. I am taking a break from the architecture industry to immerse myself in the happy wonderland that is the festival fancy dress, novelty hat industry.”
The animal heads are the result of UK-based Aspin’s 3D modelling and spatial thinking expertise, making them wearable—and functional—costume pieces.
“They can easily be worn on top of the head as a hat, or slipped down over the face as a mask. This adaptability gives partygoers the freedom to eat, drink, and chat without the discomfort that can ruin an otherwise perfect costume,” Aspin says.
The designs are printed on 100% recycled card, with a bio-degradable laminate finish, and 5% of the profits go to the Woodland Trust.
