Did you think that masks were worn only at Halloween? Of course, that is a very popular time to wear a mask of one of your idols. But it’s not the only time.

Rubber Masks

There are different themes for masquerade parties. Just imagine being invited to a masquerade party that requires you to come as your favorite politician – or your favorite celebrity. Or maybe even the politician you hate the most. How uncomfortable would that be?

Ogawa Studio in Saitama, a suburb of Tokyo, doesn’t care whether you wear a mask of someone you like or hate. They sell to novelty stores all over the world and are just very happy that you’re wearing a rubber mask.

And this factory now has a very welcome problem to deal with – producing 350 rubber masks of Trump each day compared to only 45 a day before the US election. They’re working feverishly to keep up with orders.

They also produce masks of other politicians – and not just ones from the US. They are the only rubber mask manufacturer in Japan and make masks of international politicians and celebrities from all over the world. They don’t care about politics – only that the masks will sell.

Well, they say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so I guess a politician or celebrity can be very flattered when people wear a rubber mask with his or her likeness.
