Fans of the Dark Ages know the terror inspired by the Black Plague, the pandemic that absolutely devastated the European population. This dark, gruesome period of history has come to be represented by the idea of the Plague Doctor, iconic for their outfits. Plague doctors wore a specific plague doctor costume, including a beak mask that made them resemble giant crows or ravens. Plague doctors would stuff the beaks of their avian masks with aromatic herbs in an attempt to ward off contracting the plague themselves.
Today we don’t have Plague Doctors roaming the world anymore. However, the Plague Doctor mask has become the iconic piece of costume head gear that calls back to that tumultuous time. What began as a way to ensure they weren’t infected with the plague themselves soon became a universally-feared outfit and costume. Dressed head to toe in black and with their faces hidden behind a gruesome mask as they tended to plague victims, plague doctors were mysterious figures that would only mean that death from pandemic was near. Today, the plague doctor mask is part of a costume, but the image of a cloaked figure wearing a plague doctor mask has become a part of our collective unconscious.
