From Denver's very own Cyanide Stitches comes the perfect face-cover for spring days that don't require the heavy-duty facial protection of the Beard Head, but still cry for a complement of faux facial hair (as pictured on creator Amber Glenn here). Or fangs. Or bad teeth.

Each Insta-Face Bandana is embroidered with an instant facial feature of some kind or another. They're a sizable 22 inches by 22 inches, made from 100 percent cotton, and they'll keep your face warm and at least quasi-protected from the elements for the spring. And they're hopelessly goofy -- in a good way.

More photos and whatnot after the jump...

Amber says she was inspired to make her first Insta-Face Bandana last fall after riding her bike in the cold: "I didn't want something that made me look scary or was as bulky as a scarf."

Her catalog copy is pretty funny, too. From her shop at Etsy.com:

Ever wish those pearly whites sitting atop your gums could be a luxurious pearly yellow? Tired of having too many teeth crowding your mouth? Fret no more!

All you need is this strange but amazing Bad Hygiene bandana! It features a big black smile with a few crooked and mangled yellow teeth hanging out, just waiting for their turn to break off and be forgotten!

Insta-Face Bandanas normally cost $15 to $18, but right now Cyanide Stitches is running a $10 special at her Etsy.com shop. Amber says the sale will run until about March 25, so don't dawdle.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
