Balaclava as fashion
It seems that the balaclava is the hottest item in fashion. There are several advantages to this:
a) reduced cost of makeup
b) a level playing field for ugly or plain girls
c) harder to identify you if you commit a criminal act
One of the problems with being out of step with northern hemisphere season is that kiwi girls who adopt the practice will cook in the Auckland summer heat. More likely to take off in Wellington and will have the added advantage of keeping your hair in place in the wind. Maybe we'll see variations of theme in the weeks ahead. Paper bags with eye holes cut in. Burkas? watch for rubber gimp masks hitting the high street.
