Is it possible to hide or not even use mask in character creator for necromancer class in Guild Wars 2? If yes, how?

It's not possible to skip that step of the character creation as far as I know, but when you finish creating your character and get into the game proper, your "mask" is simply a regular head slot item that you can hide (or even remove) at will.

The same is also true for the Mesmer's masks.

I believe it is possible for all headgear, as well as shoulders. – SaintWacko Aug 31 '12 at 5:27
@SaintWacko: Indeed it is! It's also worth mentioning that, because the masks are treated as normal head slot items, they can be used for transmutation as well. :) – CloudyMusic Aug 31 '12 at 15:28
Yes, they can. The thief's hood is only available as starter gear, but I much prefer that look to the masks you find during the game, so in the last BWE I transferred the appearance of the hood along as I got new gear. – SaintWacko Aug 31 '12 at 15:31
