Masks in Mysticism

I guess I’m a week late on this topic, but whatever …

Every year when Halloween rolls around, I get to thinking about the spiritual significance of masks or costumes. There’s the obvious aspects of transformation and concealment, and then there’s the question of what we chose to dress up as, and why.

I personally haven’t ever worn a costume for spiritual reasons, but I can easily see how it could be. Has anyone here had experience with something like this?
