What is a LED Halloween Mask?

what-is-a-led-halloween-mask

A LED Halloween Mask is a fully-functional lighted mask. They typically have an RGB LED design that allows you to change colors, and potentially even faces.

The masks are normally battery operated or have a rechargeable battery. LED Halloween masks often have an all-day battery life for maximum usability.

In addition, many masks will have an option for Bluetooth-app control. This allows you to completely customize the mask using an smartphone app such as Shining Mask.

What to Look for in a LED Halloween Mask?

  • LED Display: Is the LED display bright, color accurate and high-definition?
  • Battery Life: What type of battery is on-board? Typically you either see rechargeable or disposable used.
  • Comfort: Is the mask comfortable to wear for extended periods? You can see battery lives of up to 12 hours, so you can expect to wear it for potentially that long!
  • Customizable: Can you use the Shining Mask app to customize what is shown on the mask?
  • Preset Faces: Are there a lot of preset faces included?
  • App-Control: Does the mask offer Bluetooth app control so you can connect via your smartphone?

How Much Are LED Halloween Masks?

LED Masks for Halloween typically cost under $100. You can find them in the $50-75 range (if you want one that’s Bluetooth app-controlled).

Additionally, you can find basic LED masks for under $30, but they won’t have customizable LED’s.

What is the Shining Mask App?

A shining mask uses the smart phone app Shining Mask, to control a LED display mask. It can adjust the LED’s individually in the app allowing for a suite of animations, faces, and different text displays that you can do!

The cool thing is that all you need is a Bluetooth connection on your smart phone to connect to the shining mask enabled face mask.

How to Use Shining Mask?

How do you use your shining mask? Basically all you have to do is download the application on your phone (iOS / Android). Then, connection your display mask to the Shining Mask app. Once connected you can easily scroll through the suite of animations and different faces.

The app can be a bit difficult to use at first. But, after getting past the initial learning curve, can be an extremely useful tool.

Are LED Masks Safe?

LED masks are very safe to wear. It is highly unlikely that an LED diode would cause any adverse event (source).

One of the biggest benefits of LED technology is it’s ability to stay relatively cool. This cool operating temperature not only means safer for kid’s and use, but lower risk of causing any fires in practical applications.

Additionally, the charging methods used by these masks have been around for decades now, and are considered very safe.

The masks use silicone or other skin-safe materials (read more) for the contact points. Because these masks can be worn for several hours at a time (some exceeding 12 hours), it’s important to have gentle contact points.

Can Kids Wear LED Halloween Masks?

From a parent’s perspective, you may or might not want your kids to wear them. However, from a safety perspective, they are very safe for a kid to wear.

The LED’s themselves don’t run hot, and the materials in the masks shouldn’t cause any irritation. Additionally, most of the LED masks will have adjustable straps that you can pull tight enough to fit a kid’s head!

Finally, for a kid’s Halloween, you can really elevate their costume by using one of these masks. For example, if your kid was going as the “grim reaper”, then they can use a spooky animation to really sell the costume.
