The Silicone Masks Ideas for Halloween


It will be a good idea to try your silicone mask before the finale of the Halloween party, if you want to scare the wits out of every one on the night of “Dead”. Try an old man’s vinyl mask full of wrinkles and freckles, the hair on each standing straight as if horrified by its own stance and a squint in the eye. You can alter the appearance with goggles and a hat. With a big Kentucky derby hat and sun glasses, disguise yourself and get freakier than ever. With a grotesque mask, make a sudden appearance from the corner or stream towards the room scaring your dog.

Some masks allow you to make facial expressions; with silicone masks it is possible to move your mouth. Use the correct size so that the holes fit into your eyes snugly and the slit perfectly over your mouth. A mask that completes your costume can scare the crap out of anybody, especially the kids. A high quality mask carrying a good skin tone that does not look out of place with the color of your skin and face. An exceptional mask that is designed skillfully to showcase a corpse, a skull, predator or Frankenstein can be a good idea. Take care that your costume matches the face. You cannot dress in a werewolf costume and display a mask of witch.


Which is the most scary Halloween mask?

Impact of Masks

You really do not have to spend time on makeup if you have found the right mask, what’s more if it is of good quality it can last more than one Halloween.


Characters such as Mad Hatter, Michael Myer have spookiness attached to them. The masks of such characters can be real terrifying.



Masks are generally stretchable, but still an adult mask cannot fit a kid and vice-versa. Choose the correct size, a drooping mask is hardly scary.
