When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When life gives you coronavirus, make your own face mask out of ANYTHING you can find.
This is exactly what dozens of people are now doing and, lucky for us, there are photos to prove it. Facebook user Debra Morgan Vogt shared a collection of giggle-worthy snaps of people out and about at the shops donning their best anti-COVID-masks.
Most wouldn’t offer much protection, but, hey, at least they make us smile. Check out our favourite makeshifts face masks of 2020. What a crazy world we live in when it actually makes sense to see people out in public dressed like this!
This guy’s not horsing around.
2. Doona cover bag
3. Newspaper cone mask
Complete with a nose and eyes. So creative.
4. Party hat
Most likely leftover from her child’s birthday bash that got cancelled.
The wings give them even more protection.
6. A G-string
7. Sponge mask
Sponge Bob Zebra Pants.
8. SCUBA suit
The oxygen really adds to the outfit, don’t you think?
9. Box mask
10. A dirty ol’ sneaker
Hey, if the shoe fits.
11. Water bottle
A for effort on this one.
Well, I think it’s a fishbowl…
Complete with a 1.5m “don’t go near me” diameter. Genius. And if it happens to be raining in the parking lot, you’re all set.
14. Plastic bag
Maybe she can reuse it to carry her groceries home and save 15 cents.
15. And finally, whatever the heck this is
The Darth Vader of virus protection.
Don’t take any chances
