Plague Doctor Mask PDF


Plague Doctors with their beaky (quite gruesome) masks were not welcome characters, representing doom !    Seeing them in your area meant plague was about : (     The strange mask shape allowed the "doctors" to fill the nose area with medicinal herbs - not to frighten patients ! 

This pattern makes your very own beaky plague mask.  Team with a hooded cloak makes a spooky, gruesome Halloween costume : )  The mask has two adjustments to fit all heads.

Step by step instructions with lots of reference photos should make this pattern suitable for beginners and fun for advanced alike.   Full sized pattern sheets are included.

  • Easy to follow instructions
  • Great for Steam punk/gothic style clothing

  • Includes historical facts to get us in the mood
