I did wear that half-mask as well, primarily to keep the mesh away from my eyes. That's the real key in the whole thing; if the mesh is up against your eyelashes it's too distracting. It's a rigid cloth-covered domino mask - this one, actually ( [link]
). I enlarged the eyeholes quite a bit, added some foam padding at the temples, and later trimmed down the rest of the mask so that it only really covers the eye area once I realized the mesh layers were applying just
enough pressure on the domino to give me a headache.
