    In these days of quasi-quarantine and social distancing, personal presentation has really taken a hit—there seems hardly any reason to change out of your pajamas or comb your hair, let alone strive for fabulousness when you’re out and about (whatever that means now). 

    But the situation doesn’t have to be quite so…basic. To wit: Sure, you can fashion a protective mask from that generic old bandana you’ve had lying around, but why be a faceless (as it were) schlub? We’re here to help you literally put your money where your mouth is and stay safe—and cool—out there with this selection of pop star-themed protective gear.*

    Is there a more iconic, and intriguing, classic-rock image than the Fab Four’s single-file traversing of Abbey Road? This one’s available in a few varieties, but we love the stark simplicity of a black-and-white silhouette.

    If your tastes run darker and more obscure, here’s one that only fellow disciples of the legendary post-punkers will recognize. That artwork? It’s a graphic rendering of signals from a radio pulsar by Peter Saville.

    Whether you’re a casual admirer or full-on fanatic, you’re likely to consider Costello’s 1978 album, This Year’s Model, his masterpiece. Turns out the same can be said for its still-stirring cover art, reproduced here in all its creepy, glaring glory.

    Of course, there’s that other Elvis, for those of you with more old-school, down-home taste. Hard to beat this beautiful-in-its-simplicity rendering of the King. Isn’t he just dreamy???

    Shop it: Elvis Presley, Music Legend Mask, $12, redbubble.com

    The Police

    Sure, you won’t see the words “Police” or an image of Messrs. Sumner, Summers, and Copeland on this mask, but instead something cooler: an in-the-know reference to one of the ‘70s-‘80s trio’s greatest singles…which just happens to be timely as hell right about now.

    Ramones

    There are few more merchandised—or awesome–bands than The Ramones, featuring a mind-bending array of choices, but the first and best graphic tribute to the peerless punks is their official, absurdist “seal.” Gabba Gabba Hey!

    Shop it: Ramones Mask, $14, redbubble.com

    Brian Jones

    Sure, you could go with the trademark lips-and-tongue logo, but bone-deep Rolling Stones fans might want to opt for this trippy tribute to the band’s late lamented founder and guitarist Brian Jones.

    Speaking of ‘60s drug casualties, check this full-throated (heh) tribute to the rock’s inimitable six-string genius. This bandana mask also offers a comfy alternative to those who can’t abide rubber bands digging into the back of their ears.

    Steely Dan

    This one’s just too goofy to ignore—combining a devotees-only allusion to the cover art of the Dan’s 1980 album, Gaucho, its AOR-staple single “Hey Nineteen,” and our present predicament. 

    Shop it: Hey COVID-19 Mask, $12, redbubble.com

    Grateful Dead

    Also hilarious: This Grateful Dead-themed mask wordlessly, and beautifully, alludes to the cover art for an album called Steal Your Face. Get it? It’s a mask? It steals your face?? Oh, never mind.

    Shop it: Grateful Dead Mask, $14, redbubble.com

    Lou Reed

    Take a walk on the protected side sporting this iconic image from the cover of Reed’s masterpiece, Transformer. Wanna go a bit deeper into Sweet Lou iconography? There’s a mask honoring the most famous banana in Pop Art history…and the cover of the Velvet Underground’s debut album.
