Using material which is usually reserved for traditional Lucha Libre masks and costumes, a former CMLL wrestler is now producing Luchador themed face masks amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
In an interview with ESPN Mexico,El Hjio de Soberano began producing face masks after sales of wrestler costumes declined.
“Last week we had a very difficult time, there were no sales at all, and my wife says to me: ‘Why don’t we make face masks ?’ So we made some, but using the material we had for the costumes. We use the lycra and the fabrics that are used in the wrestling suit makings, they have double stitching, fabric reinforcement. It is the same as a wrestling mask, this is how we are making them”
