Need mask suggestions *not* for halloween

Just lost the eye mask I purchased from an airport Brookstone
years ago. My last purchase was due to necessity. This time, I would like to do my best to make an informed choice. Also, to get me through the next few nights, what piece of clothing will be the best substitute?

A few years ago I purchased the eye mask referenced above and have started sleeping with it nightly, as I've grown to like the darkness (it is my ally) for sleeping. I just emptied my bags and found I've lost it in my travels today. So, I have two questions:
1. What should I be looking for in a sleeping mask? The one I had was okay, but I don't really have any idea what I might be missing. Any particular suggestions? Bonus points if I can find it in Frankfurt, Germany without treking out to the airport (I was *just* there and would have bought the first one I saw if I knew it was missing ARG!); super bonus points if near the Suedbanhof.
2. After assessing the blinds in the place I'll be staying for the next two weeks and finding them completely inadequate for complete light blockage, what are your strategies for blocking the light for sleeping?
