Picking out the perfect Halloween costume can be tough. It takes more than accessorizing and bringing out your goth makeup A-game to make a costume spooky. However, if you want to keep things simpler, and you just one to focus on one element – say a Halloween mask – then there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. Often, scary Halloween masks does the trick. This is why I’ve come up with a list of these masks for you.
Freddy Krueger and his movies are the stuff of nightmares. Who could forget having their dreams haunted by this character only to wake up in cold sweats as a child? I know I still couldn’t, no matter how hard I try. This is why his name has become synonymous to horror. One look at his decaying flesh, his menacing smile, and his finger knives and you’re sure to relive the nightmare all over again.
I’m also sure that this scary Halloween mask is going to win you more than a few frightened stares, mostly from the folks who have had the misfortune of watching his films. Well, if this isn’t really your cup of tea, then you can check out this list for a sexy Miss Krueger version.
The 1978 Texas Chainsaw Massacre has all the elements of the ultimate horror flick. It has the perfect setting, an eerie musical score, and a great villain. If the name ‘Leatherface’ doesn’t scare you, I’m not sure there are a lot of things that will. What’s even scarier is that it was supposedly a loose adaptation of real-life murderer, Ed Gein.
Bring back the good ol’ memories and scare the living daylights out of your friends with this Leatherface Halloween mask, somehow made even more sinister by the makeup. Your friends would probably steer clear of you because of how scary you look, but hey, that’s what Halloween is all about, right?
R.L. Stine sure knows his way around scary characters. It’s even hard to imagine that he started out as a writer for a humor magazine. One such scary character is Slappy the Dummy, and this is why I have a growing fear of ventriloquists. You gotta watch out for those dummies. As Slappy, play the role of a dummy that has come to life and terrorize the streets this Halloween.
This scary Halloween mask has all the Slappy elements that make him tick. Those huge, unblinking eyes, the prominent cheekbones, and the thick, ginger eyebrows will earn you bewildered reactions – and fright. People will try to fight the urge to keep staring at you, always wondering if they actually saw you blink? No? Could be their imagination, then.
Okay, if you see a clown beckoning for you, your instincts better tell you to run the other way. I’m sure there are other reasons as to why a lot of people find clowns scary, but Stephen King certainly pulled the trigger on that with his well-known bloodthirsty character, Pennywise the Clown.
This author certainly has a knack for making seemingly innocent and playful objects or archetypes become absolutely terrifying. If you’re the type of person who likes to toy with people’s fears, then this scary Halloween mask is the perfect choice for you. Unless, of course, you’re afraid of clowns, too! Just by looking at it, you’ll immediately realize that the longer you stare at it, the scarier it becomes – that toothy grin will be the death of me. Proceed with caution.
We all should have listened to Ned Stark. Instead, we were too busy fighting over who’s going to sit on the Iron Throne. It won’t mean much when the Whitewalkers take over Westeros, though. If you’re a huge fan of A Song of Ice and Fire, then you might be interested in dressing up as the Night King.
His glowing blue eyes and wrinkled, horned face will be enough to turn this autumn ice cold. Gather your army of the undead and head on to the nearest Halloween party wearing this scary Halloween mask to show people that winter has indeed come, and they better run because you’re not taking any prisoners, only more soldiers to strengthen your army.
If you ever see someone turning their head a full 360 degrees, be wary. They might be possessed by a demon. This time, the Ghostbusters might not be equipped to handle it. You better call an exorcist to do the job. Possessed Regan is probably one of the scariest movie characters to ever exist onscreen.
For starters, going down a flight of stairs that way will live on as one of the scariest moments of the movie! If you haven’t seen the movie and don’t know what I’m talking about, Google at your own risk. With this mask, you get to display Regan’s less flattering features – her messy hair, rotting flesh, decaying teeth, and extra spooky eyes. Those who have seen the movie at your Halloween party will surely recognize who you’re dressed as right away.
Conspiracy theorists know what’s out there. The Loch Ness monster, Bigfoot, Area 51, you name it. There are theories that might seem too kooky for you, and then there are those that are downright terrifying. Imagine walking alone and suddenly ending up someplace else without any memory of the past couple of days. It’s either a really bad hangover or you’ve been abducted by aliens!
I’m sure you’ve heard – or read – that story more times than you care to remember. Is it true? We don’t really know. However, with this scary Halloween mask, you can attend a party as a scary alien straight out of science fiction. It has the signature big, mosquito-like eyes and extra big head. This easy-to-wear mask will give you an excuse when you don’t want to talk to certain folks at the party. Play the part well and just act as though you don’t understand human language!
