The Coronavirus pandemic continues to be a stressful and difficult time for everyone. As the quarantine continues, most people are being advised to wear some type of mask over their face in order to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. While that can be a bit of a drag for most people, others have taken the opportunity to be creative and design their own unique masks. One person happened to use their love for the Alien films and franchise as inspiration for creating their own Facehugger Coronavirus mask.
As you can see, the Facehugger Coronavirus mask was created by a German artist who goes by the online handle Lady Frankenstein. She not only posted images of the mask via Facebook, but Lady Frankenstein also went into detail regarding the process behind its creation. Apparently she made it for her husband after he became jealous of a unique mask she made for herself. Here’s what she had to say:
“After my husband expressed his desire for his own fancy mask (I just can’t refuse anything,) I made myself straight to work,” she said.
What’s fascinating is how screen accurate the Facehugger Coronavirus mask is, which makes it all the more fun during this hard time. It easily looks like it could be a prop from the popular Alien movie franchise.
While it’s unknown how practical this particular mask will be during the Coronavirus pandemic, people in general are being asked by the CDC to wear cloth masks when out in public. Here’s the statement given by the CDC:
“It is critical to emphasize that maintaining 6-feed social distancing remains important to slowing the spread of the virus,” the CDC’s website reads. “CDC is additionally advising the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.”
So even though you might not be able to wear a Facehugger, be safe and keep some kind of cloth mask. Otherwise the best thing would be to stay at home unless there’s an essential reason to leave.
