Working with masks

I am thinking of giving a character in my novel a mask to wear – a mask made of human skin. It may be that (s)he wears the mask for so long that it becomes welded to the face and can never be removed.

Meanwhile, I wear my mask of calm and jollity and wonder how long it may take to grow in, become irremovable. And whether the result counts as reality or monstrosity.
