141. Monsters Like Leather Masks

Everyone likes putting together their Halloween costumes. Little kids dress up like their favorite Disney princesses and Marvel heroes. College girls try to find that delicate balance between skimpy and slutty. Grown-ups aim for humor, couples’ costumes, or just something creepy enough to frighten those pesky neighborhood kids from down the road.

And what good is a costume unless it has a mask? Everyone from Batman to presidential impersonators to masquerade queens will have one this Halloween.

Monsters LOVE putting together costumes, too. Especially the scary ones. But monsters are nocturnal, which makes it hard to get to the store before it closes.

Never fear! We’ve learned to make our own masks. And all we need is a little help from you…
