A Hairy & Scary Find

I found these Ben Cooper "Hairy & Scary" masks at a sale a couple weeks back.  These are similar to the ones I blogged about last year and were bargain priced at $2 each. First up is this orange haired...witch? shrunken head? shrunken witch head? Your guess is as good as mine, but you have to agree, she/he/it is creepy.

Next is the classic hobo clown.  This one with its orange skin and wild hair is particularly creepy.

And finally, this witch appears to be a later mask given the larger eyes for safety.

This one might not be from the Hairy & Scary line.  The tag inside reads "A Fun Mask" by Ben Cooper.

The final mask in this lot I bought, while hairy, is definitely not scary (except for the stereotyped imagery).

I believe this mask is older than the other three.  The material used for the hair is different.  I couldn't find any manufacturer's marks on this piece.

  1. the stapled/ringed-shut lips on the first one are the creepiest to me (aside from how shocking the last one is, of course). maybe it's an orange-haired witch doctor (in itself an embarrassingly racist stereotype)?
