DSU Mask Fashion
Homemade doesn’t mean less fashionable. Dixie State University students have resorted to making their own masks as opposed to buying them online. Homemade masks can be great for gifts or a fun way to get in touch with your creative side. If you have time you can grab some old fabric or an old t-shirt and create one of your own!
“Moo”-ve over department stores. Homemade masks are trendy and cost effective! Ashley Christensen, a freshman biology major from Salt lake City, said her mask is special because her friend made it for her. She usually doesn’t coordinate her masks with her outfit, but she has four different masks that she rotates through and sometimes it just happens. “The plain black ones are too plain for me.” Moesha Spencer, a junior business marketing major from East Yosemite, California, made this mask herself. Materials you’ll need: a white homemade or store bought mask rubber bands Rit dye water Sean Jordan, a senior theater major from Mesquite, said “My girlfriend made me this mask and it doesn’t fog up my glasses.” Jordan has at least seven other masks and plans to bring out his Halloween inspired mask when the time is right. Devon Rice, a junior business marketing major from Bountiful, made his mask on campus at the Multicultural Inclusion Student Association and Black Student Union event. “Sometimes I match, if it works it works… Tie Dye and tie dye is what I wear usually.” Rice said.
