So October 31 is coming up. And, as we do every year, we’re buying candy corn, carving pumpkins and wondering what we’re going to be for Halloween.
Frankenstein? Dracula? John McCain? (Eek. Too scary.)
Here’s one costume we won’t be wearing: a mask from Real U.
Because, in our opinion, cotsumes should be obviously that: costumes. You know, impress your friends with your inventiveness. Real U masks look like something you’d wear to a bank robbery, not a Halloween party.
But they are pretty striking. And they should be. The people who run the company spent six years working on them. (They might have even skipped a Star Trek convention or two.)
The secret of Real U masks is that they’re made of silicone. They flex and fit so well that it’s hard to tell it’s not your actual face.
There are five models to choose from: the Sarge, the Elder, the Gangster, the Player (who’s black) and the Inbred (pictured above). They cost around $700 each.
Sheesh. For that price maybe you should wear one to rob a bank.
