Recreate Masquerade balls from your favourite films

July 03, 2013

There are many beautiful masquerade scenes that have graced the big screen. Often the scene of a budding romance, a dramatic scene or an excuse for the costume department to go all out. We thought we’d put together a list of our favourites and suggest how you can recreate the looks yourselves with a beautiful Samantha Peach design.

The Lone Ranger (2013)

Armie Hammer as The Lone Ranger

The Lone Ranger will hit screens this summer starring Armie Hammer in the title role and Johnny Depp as Tonto. The movie revolves around Native American warrior Tonto’s recounting the untold tales that transformed John Reid, a man of the law, into a legend of justice.

Samantha Peach Classic Black Mask £9.99

If you (or the special man in your life) would like to recreate The Lone Ranger look before the summer blockbuster hits the screens then try our Classic Black Mask for £9.99. It’s a dashing look!

Marie Antoinette (2006)

Kirsten Dunst as Marie Antoinette

Kirsten Dunst starred in the Sofia Coppola directed ‘Marie Antoinette’ in 2006. The film is a retelling of France’s iconic but ill-fated queen, Marie Antoinette. From her betrothal and marriage to Louis XVI at 15 to her reign as queen at 19 and to the end of her reign as queen and ultimately the fall of Versailles. The film features many beautiful masks (and gorgeous costumes!). To get the full period look put feathers in your piled high hair and use a fan liberally to give the appearance of being coy.

Soft Real Lace Mask £9.99

To copy Kirsten/Marie’s look then try our Soft Lace mask. It creates a level of intrigue whilst also giving maximum visibility!


Phantom of the Opera (2004)

Emmy Rossum in Phantom of the Opera

Emmy Rossum and a singing Gerard Butler starred in the 2004 film adaptation of the world famous musical ‘Phantom of the Opera’. The story follows a disfigured musical genius, hidden away in the Paris Opera House, who terrorizes the opera company for the unwitting benefit of a young protégée whom he trains and loves. The film doesn’t just feature a masquerade, it has an entire song dedicated to it!

Ivory Cream Lace Masquerade Stick Mask £19.99
 Get the look of Christine’s beautiful mask with our own Ivory Cream Lace Masquerade mask. It comes on a stick to allow easy removal to identify yourself to the particular dashing phantom you have your eye on.

Labyrinth (1986)

David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly attend a Masquerade in 80s classic ‘Labyrinth’

The 80s classic film ‘Labyrinth’ stars David Bowie and a young Jennifer Connelly in a world filled with mystery, intrigue and Jim Henson puppets. 15-year-old Sarah (Connelly) accidentally wishes her baby half-brother, Toby, away to the Goblin King Jareth (Bowie) who will keep Toby if Sarah does not complete his Labyrinth in 13 hours. The film features a masked ball with Jennifer sporting a very elaborate meringue dress (and pulling it off!). Guests are wearing some rather devilish and macabre masks inspired by those seen every year in Venice.

Gold Leather Male Masquerade Mask £29.99

If you’d like to recreate the look of the guests in the scene, with a distinctly David Bowie twist then why not try our Gold Leather Male Masquerade Mask? It’s beautifully crafted to make you stand out in the masked crowd.

Beautiful Ivory Cream Lace Masquerade Mask

If you’re more of a Sarah than a Goblin King then this beautiful Ivory Cream Lace mask would be a perfect pick! Elegant, delicate, and best of all… ivory goes with everything!
