Rick Sanchez full mask — EasilyUsed

Shaman mask — Alejandro

Need a mask to tie together your shaman or wendigo outfit? This full fox skull is just the trick — albeit this is one of the larger prints in this list. The two-part jaw with a fully articulated jaw is definitely worth the filament you’ll burn through, though!

Are you a fan of the Bioshock series, bunnies, or creepy half masks? Then this print has you covered with an unnerving upper-half masquerade-style rabbit face.

Dark mask — bq Labs

This two-piece mask is perfect for tying together any generic scary murderer costume you have laying around. The hinged jaw also allows for you to keep drinking while you’re spooking!
