Up here in North Dakota, we milk the sun for all it’s worth the few months we’ve got it!  Bathing beauties can be found on every sandbar on the river and every shore at the lakes! But in China, some are going to extraordinary lengths to avoid getting sun with a new item of beachwear – dubbed the Facekini – causing something of a stir in the coastal tourist city of Qingdao, Shandong Province.

The masks completely cover the swimmers' heads, revealing only their eyes, noses, and mouths.

The styles and colors of the masks suggest a huge beach party attended by some lesser superheroes, Mexican wrestlers or perhaps a few bank robbers.

Oh I’m sure authorities and bankers just LOVE this new fashion!!
