The creator has also provided the following information:
A lace-edged black silk mask can be detailed with both a long and a show description.  However, the noun cannot be changed, and part of the LOOK has a portion that cannot be altered.  A merchant can help you with changing your mask so that it either covers your entire face; or covers the upper part of your face (including your nose); or covers the upper part of your face (but not your nose).  [Note that this is in regards to the "face," "nose," and, when applicable, the "dmark" feature slots.]  A merchant can help you change what the fastenings look like, though they must remain something that logically ties (cording, ribbons, strings, etc.).


A lace-edged black silk mask can be customized in the following manner, where any talented merchant can customize the bolded sections.  Note that customizations cannot use speech.  (* preceeding any phrasing indicates customized phrasing is in use on this particular item.)

 (NUDGE (cover face)) *With a mischievous smirk, you position your black silk mask to cover your face and tighten its fastenings.

 (NUDGE (uncover face)) smiling cryptically, you loosen the fastenings of your black silk mask and pull it down, revealing your face.

 (RAISE) You adjust your black silk mask ever so slightly, drawing attention to the secretive smile written upon the curve of your lips.

 (TWITCH) Your fingertips trail over the edge of your black silk mask as your lips twitch up in an enigmatic smile.


Currently you are able to use NUDGE, RAISE, and TWITCH.  This mask may only be unlocked further within special, rare circumstances.
