“What a strange thing it is to wake up to a milk-white overcast June morning! The sun is hidden by a thick cotton blanket of clouds, and the air is vapor-filled and hazy with a concentration of blooming scent. The world is somnolent and cool, in a temporary reprieve from the normal heat and radiance. But the sensation of illusion is strong. Because the sun can break through the clouds at any moment. What a soft thoughtful time.

In this illusory gloom, like a night-blooming flower, let your imagination bloom in a riot of color.” – Vera Nazarian

The determined haze reflects Nazarian’s words acutely, as we look out of our windows for the past three days and wonder if the haze here to stay. In any case, we recommend you to mask up for the haze – and no one said that we can’t do it without style and a contest.

Grab any old mask and emulate your favorite character from any book/movie/television series.

All you have to do is three simple things:

  1. Design it
  2. Wear it
  3. Instagram it and tag us! Caption it as: “name of character from name of book/movie/television series @popspokenpix #instamask #sghaze” Example: Walking out now looking like Joker from The Dark Knight! @popspokenpix #instamask #sghaze

Top entries stand to win personalized watches from Moment Watches! Contest opened till 12th July 2013, or until the haze clears (whichever is earlier).
