Today I’m excited to give you a behind-the-scenes look at Opposite of Far, a super fun company based in Bloomington, Indiana, that sells handmade masks and tails for kids. Whether you’re planning a birthday party or are looking to make everyday story time extra awesome, you’ll want to check out these Opposite of Far goodies. And I know you’ll enjoy taking a look at where the magic happens, too!

Let’s get started!

  • Lion Mask 1 of 15

    As a former nanny and preschool teacher, Opposite of Far founder Jessica Near knows all about the importance of play and the encouragement of kiddos' creative imaginations. Kids are going to have a blast dressing up as their favorite animals and characters.

  • Zebra Mask & Tail 2 of 15

    No kid should have to wait for Halloween to roll around to enjoy a good costume. Each of these masks are made from layers of durable eco-felt to ensure hours and hours of fun all year long.

  • New Butterfly Mask 3 of 15

    This new butterfly mask is perfect for celebrating spring. Show this to your kiddo, ask them to pick out their favorite colors, and order you custom design. So easy and fun!

  • Turtle Power 4 of 15

    How about this turtle mask and shell set? The straps for the shell crisscross across the child's chest, so each is made custom to your child's measurements.

  • Springtime Barnyard 5 of 15

    Now your kiddo can have a complete set — a tan rabbit, a pink pig, a white duck, and a little white lamb — to welcome spring. Invite some friends over and put on a farmer's production!

    These customizable superhero masks are perfect for birthday parties. Pick your colors; you can even request a custom fit.

  • Mix & Match Play 7 of 15

    I love the idea of having bins or baskets filled to the brim with masks and tails. Sometimes a plain old animal doesn't cut it; you want to be a turtle-fox for the day.

  • Mask of the Month Club 8 of 15

    One of my favorite Opposite of Far offerings is the mask of the month club. You can choose a zoo, barnyard, or woodland collection and have a mask show up at your door every month. How fun is that?

  • Masks With Eyelashes 9 of 15

    When ordering your mask, don't forget to add on the eyelashes. Love!

  • Living the Dream 10 of 15

    It's so exciting to see people taking their creativity to the next level. Jessica knew she wanted to make her living through the handmade and started by making and selling dolls. Now she's her own boss, working in her own space, making the things she loves, all while helping to support her family!

  • Opposite of Far Studio 11 of 15

    This is where Jessica, with the help of her husband, makes the magic happen. Like many in the handmade goods market, Jessica got her start on Etsy, after taking some time off work following a back surgery. She launched with two designs and now has over 50!

    Any DIYer would be envious of this organized and inspiring studio! Who wouldn't want to be surrounded by color and texture all day?

    I love the quality of these masks and that Jessica favors eco-felts. Just one look at the craftsmanship, and it's clear Jessica takes her time with each mask made.
