This morning in NYC, the "realfeel" temperature was an absurd 9 degrees Fahrenheit (that's about -12 for you Celsius-heads, and by that I mean the rest of the world). Coming back inside with my dogs, it felt like my face was going to fall off and shatter on the floor.
Thanks to bank robbers and their merciless fashion co-opting, I can't really wear a ski mask without some social repercussions. Ditto for bandannas and balaclavas thanks to mujaheddin and ninjas. I've poked around for ways to keep my face warm, but everything I find just looks frightening, like this ColdAvenger facemask:
You walk into any New York establishment wearing this thing and people will start lying down on the floor, holding their cell phones, jewelry and wallets up in the air while studiously examining the tiles. Can someone please design a friendly-looking face-warming device, or is the very nature of something that obscures your face an impossible design task?
Also, hint: Let's not put the word "Avenger" in the name and/or emblazon that on the side in white lettering.
