Red and blue don't really fly with me personally, I'd say black bottoms or black frame and you're about set. But do what you like, it's your mask

The 2 golden rules to mask building:

1) Black soft ears are key
2) No Two tone colors in which one isn't black. Two color's never looks good.

As a general rule of thumb I would say if you have a choice, get colored frames and black bottoms, not the other way around but thats my opinion.

fixed

So, after lerking around here for a while now, here's what I've learned
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Golden Rule of Mask building according to: FOTM,XYZ,ABC,YADA,YADA,BLAH,BAAH:

1 - ninja ftw
2 - softears only come in black, right?
3 - no masks that match your strap (unless your strap is black)
4 - no theme masks
5 - only colors tolerated are HB or Boston
6 - no masks that match your jersey (unless your jersey is black)
7 - if in doubt - use black
-------------------------------------------------------------------

so, how can I improve this mask?

Practice non-conformity! Practice non-conformity! Practice non-conformity! Practice non-conformity!

Well you broke the rule of no pictures over 800x600.

Honestly locking it in the closet is the best way to improve that beast.

What would match better, HB Pink or EPS Pink frames? Lens is going to be smoke as well.

Leave it as is - the EPS pink matches better, but is just not that 'pretty' - HB Pink is more fuscia, so I don't think it matches the pink plaid as well

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
EDIT:
HB Pink-Pink Plaid - don't have pink frames

Mirror lense is on the way. Just bought it the other day. Would be up to dying it since its white and i could get any color to turn out well... Just looking for some advice. I was thinking maybe dying the frame purple leaving white pin stripes?

You can't really do much with Flex8's imo...

I'd keep the frame the color it is.
