There have been lots of fun 'photoshopped' phony designer protective face masks on the web as a result of the world's fixation on this potential pandemic. But, someone has actually created and is selling some truly fun ones.
Designer/Art Director Irina Blok has designed a fun series of 9 fashionable protective face masks given the present state of swine-flu panic.

Leopard print, pill-popping and zipper:
Beard, duct tape and piggy:
Oink, skull and lips:
One little factoid: She originally had included a cute 'Domo' mask (shown below) but Domo asked her to remove it suggesting that it was 'damaging their brand'.
She will produce a very limited edition of these in about 4 weeks (according to her site) and they will cost about $10 (plus $3 S&H). E-mail her here to get your name on the list.
Big Bonus: Proceeds will be donated to Children International to help Mexico fight the swine flu epidemic.
