About this project

Hi everyone I am very happy you have found my campaign.  Let me start with a little history and then get into the meat and potatoes of the project.

I started making EL Wire masks around two years ago for my wife and I.  The first ones were crude masks made just for Halloween. But I received such a reaction from people and got so many customer requests that i continued improving on the designs. Within three months I was picked up by a national fashion show touring the USA, and by Director Daniel Flannery who invited me to do an international show in China for three months. Here I met many people who actually work on custom designs for Hollywood and shows like Circus de soleil and Cavalia. These wonderful designers like Jack Tung, Francine Lecoultre, and Micheal Curry's puppeteers only helped me to further improve our designs and comfort of our masks.

To keep up with the demand of our masks we are starting a manufacturing line here in the USA. I have all the manufacturing set up for production and only need to raise enough revenue to get our masks started on a larger scale output. 

For helping us achieve our goal you will find our masks will range in the $20 to $40 range. You will never have an experience like the one when wearing our QitaWear masks. You think you are going to wear a cool or fun mask but it ends up being an experience like no other.  This I promise!

Masks are extremely lightweight and comfortable, some weighing only 30 grams.  I have never had a complaint on the compatibility and weight of our present designs.  You will have the option of choosing one of ten colors for you mask when you pick a reward. Colors are Blue, White, Red Orange, Orange, Yellow, Pink, Blue Green, Lime Green, Green and Purple.

Risks and challenges

As with any new project there can be many obstacles on large scale manufacturing. There can be unforeseen delays on delivery of our materials or problems on the construction of the masks. All masks are hand made so there will be a learning curve with assembly. We do not foresee any delays but if there are any we will always keep you updated on our progress and an ETA for your mask. Because I have been constructing masks for the last two years we will get your mask to you not matter what.
