In recent years, interest in cannabis and its consumption has grown exponentially. While smoking a joint is the most common way to consume cannabis, different devices such as vaporizers, dabs, and water pipes are becoming popular. Some people use it for recreational purposes only, but others find that it provides relief for certain ailments. Cannabis is becoming a part of every industry out there, and that includes fashion.
Welcome to your second Holiday Season of rocking a mask to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Masking-up is such a part of everyday life now, it doesn’t even seem weird anymore. If you are like me and are mostly wearing the KN95 or blue medical mask, it’s fun to dress those up by layering them with one of the many colorful Pomchies masks I have in my Mask Wardrobe (which is now a thing). Let’s look at some of the seasonal ways you can coordinate your “leaving the house” look by matching your mask to your hair accessories with new looks for the holidays from Pomchies.
Pomchies, the Arizona based company that launched the now popular Pom Mask line in response to the need for comfortable, breathable face masks at the onset of Covid19 has just expanded the line to include double-layered, reversible masks with a filter pocket, along with fresh spring colors and patterns, children’s mask two-packs and new Pom Mask holders.
Double Layer Mask with Filter Inserted
The new double layered Pom Masks are reversible and designed with a pocket for filter insertion. Color combinations currently include choices such as Navy and Black (pictured above), Black and Bottle Green, Grey and Black, Camo and Black, Snake Skin and Grey, Leopard and Black, and Dragon Fruit (bright Pink) and Aqua — so you can stay fashionable while keeping safe at all times! Pomchies keeps sustainability in mind with two of the masks being made from Repreve fabric, which is produced from recycled water bottles.

The Holiday Season is upon us and, as predicted, we’re still wearing face masks to keep ourselves and others safe from the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Masks are now a part of everyday life, so it makes sense that consumer mask design continuously evolves to create products that are more comfortable, effective, and — very important — stylish. Previously here on The ‘Gig, we reviewed a line of fashion and lifestyle accessories from Pomchies, a certified woman-owned company with an interesting back-story.
NYC-based Street Artist Denis Ouch has been busy lately painting images of Superheros in Face Masks all over the city. His most ambitious contribution to the series so far seems to be this monumental mural depicting masked-up versions of Superman, Batman, Thor (who technically is a God, not a Superhero), and Wonder Woman, accompanied by the urgent plea “Save Us Justice League” in white (and Ouch’s tag in pink).
The mural expands across two facades of the building at the corner of 8th Avenue and Greenwich Avenue (by the Mobil Station), in Chelsea.
NYC could use some saving, now more than ever I suspect.
