By: Susanwest
For centuries people have donned masks for multiple reasons from masquerade balls to religious rituals to Halloween, or Samhain, parties. Across the world, in many different countries for many different reasons masks have become a way for people to transform into someone else for the day. In theater masks are used to change from one character to another. Masks can be almost magical and are appealing to many, especially on Halloween.

Choosing a mask is done in many ways. Some people like to choose a mask then build the perfect costume around it. Other people like to find a perfect costume then search for the right mask to finish off the look. Either way finding your perfect mask is an important part of accessorizing for Halloween. Choosing the perfect mask should be fun, that is what dressing up is about.

Halloween masks add both excitement and mystery to your costume while being wonderful accessories. However, while choosing the perfect Halloween mask you should know that some of the most realistic looking ones are the latex masks. When choosing a latex mask you can be just about anything from an alien, animal or insects. You may also choose from a wide assortment of Halloween masks that include your favorite television shows, movies and cartoon characters.

Such as Jason or Freddie masks as well as a large and wonderful assortment of goblins, ghouls, corpses and creepy clowns. Although, we should not forget the classics like Frankenstein, werewolves, zombies, ghosts as well as Presidents, goons, monsters and other masks of mayhem.

There are also witches, wizards, pirates and Mardi Gras masks. Old men and women masks are also popular as well as going to a haunted house wearing a Game Face sports ball mask. Although, you may also choose a Halloween mask that is not so frightful such as queens, kings, princess, angels, fairies, unicorns and dragons.

There are so many different masks available for you to choose from, all that is limiting you is your imagination. You can be anyone you wish for Halloween. Whether you choose to be scary, funny, or just different there is a perfect Halloween mask waiting for you to wear on October 31st.

Last year the most popular Halloween masks for children were the usual pumpkin, princess, pirate, witch, cat, and vampire masks along with Spider-Man, Superman, Power Rangers, and Disney Princesses. Adults enjoyed wearing Witch, pirate, vampire, cat, clown, fairy, and gypsy masks as well as ghost and ghoul masks. With a variety of accessories available for Halloween and a wide selection of masks you would think you can be just about anything you want to be. This is true if you get your costume early, if you wait too long the selection will be picked through and you will be left with the masks that no one else wanted. Edited by Glinda Zuladra
