Playful Winter Ski Masks Delightfully Transform Wearer into an Animal

The frigid winter temperatures provide the perfect excuse to bundle up and have some fun with your wardrobe. And with these playful balaclavas, dressing for cold weather has become even more exciting. Russian tattoo model Teya Salat created a series of animal-themed ski masks that transform you into the creature of your choice. Simply slip the close-fitting garment over your face and suddenly, you're Grumpy Cat, a snow leopard, or a panda, with many more options to choose from.

Salat's photographic surface designs are a stylish take on balaclavas. Typically, they're a single color–black–and are often associated with robbing a bank. Thanks to these animal prints, however, it softens their menacing appearance by adding a delightful dose of whimsy.

The charming winter accessories are available in Salat's shop.
