Super Hero themed races have become very popular. You shouldn’t run with a mask that impedes visibility. Some races even prohibit the use of masks for this same reason. The challenge then is to turn a super hero mask into something that can be part of your running costume.
Here’s what I did:
1. I bought cheap kids sized mask with cape costume the last time I traveled to Mexico. My friend that was with me on that trip, didn’t get my vision for a running costume, but I did!
2. I cut off the cape and cut open the mask part.
3. Then, I bought an inexpensive running visor from Amazon. Click here for the link. It comes in a lot of different colors. I settled on the one that closest matched the mask color.
4. Cut out white fleece fabric and using a hot glue gun, glued it to the inside of the eyes section. I didn’t want for the eyes to look see though. I chose fleece because it’s soft and at the same time, thicker than cotton.
