Halloween Masks: Frightful or Funny

Halloween masks come in all types and sizes. They can be painted on with a skillful hand, bought in online stores, made by hand from latex, foam rubber latex prosthetics, cut from paper, or made from paper. Whether you choose fun clowns, evil clowns, or a monkey face, the look you want is not beyond your reach.

Halloween masks that cover the eyes, but can slip, are dangerous, and can hamper vision, putting your little ghost or goblin at risk for an accident from stepping into a hole and taking a fall, to stepping in front of a moving vehicle. Anytime you can use make up or a mask made of a non-slip latex prosthetic, it is much better. Safety should never be compromised by a mask that slips and blocks vision.

Halloween masks can be made very inexpensively with makeup and things you have around your house. The only limitations to these are your imagination. Very complex, somewhat expensive ($50 and up) foam latex prosthetic mask kits can be ordered online. These Halloween masks come preformed, so all you have to do is apply a little baby powder to your face, use skin glue, apply them to your face, and apply the make up according to easy to follow directions. Another alternative is to make your own Halloween mask using make up and a few ‘props’ made at home or purchased from any department store. One thing I cannot stress enough is to put powder on the faces of anyone who plans to use skin glue.

Halloween masks can also be whatever you want them to be. Use your imagination and be creative. Go to the craft store and let your mind do all of the roaming that it wants. You get to be the creative genius in who or what you want to create.
