Mask Maker is an NPC in Hollow Knight. Mask Maker is a large bug who specializes in creating and painting different kinds of masks.
Mask Maker Information
The Mask Maker's location can be found at the northwest side of Deepnest. You'll find this mysterious carpenter sitting behind a table full of masks of all shapes and sizes. He continuously works on the masks while he mumbles to himself in a voice muffled by his mask. The Mask Maker questions if a mask is needed to define, to focus, and to exist one's face. If a player executes a Desolate Dive or Descending Dark, it will destroy his mask and reveal the "true" face of the Mask Maker with grey colored skin and twirly eyeballs, startling him.
- Location: Mask Maker Can be found at Deepnest
- Combat: Players may not kill Mask Maker.
A wonderful thing to have, a face. Not a thing with which we all are blessed.
For this kingdom's faceless, I shall provide.
A mask! A face! Does it need one? Does it not? To define. To focus. To exist.

I personally think his unmasked face is absolutely adorable, along with his ceaseless babbling voice as he busily works. Love his kooky swirly eyes like Fawful, and his hilarious reaction to having his mask utterly vaporized by the Knight. Then he just continues his work and muttering as if nothing in particular happened. Mask Maker is an endearing character, really - he has Quirrel-like vibes for some reason. Another character who I wish had a bigger role in the story (and an actual name) aside from a minor appearance providing a teeny, tiny bit of “lore”. It would be awesome if he was a merchant who allowed the Knight to change his mask’s appearance, or something along those lines. Underrated fellow - just giving him a bit of love here.
