The designer joked that the mask is made for people who wore glasses, and that the temperature of the ramen would depend on how misty the user’s spectacles are.

Based on the pictures, the mask seems to be made from a soft velvety material.

The mask is mostly red, representing a typical ramen bowl.

The upper portion of the mask is ‘adorned’ with generous portions of liao like pork belly, chives, and fish cake.

Many might chose to remove the bamboo shoots from their ramen, but the ones here look so realistic that they’re almost impossible to hate.

Not available for sale as of now

Sadly, the ramen mask appears to be only a design for now.

However, the designer appears to have an online shop of his own, selling a myriad of handicrafts from mask cases to earrings, and even brooches.

Nonetheless, MS News has reached out to the designer to enquire if the ramen mask will ever be available for sale.
