Masking fears of Halloween



I know, Halloween is still a few weeks off, but it's never too early to get ready. You can buy these delightful masks for your kids at the local party store right here in Ocala!

Trick or treat!

If somebody showed uP at my door looking like that, they could have all the candy in the house and pretty much anything else they wanted.

This is a first in my comments: these are awful!
Not your fault and I understand it's the way they have to be.

Tell us the truth, these are really the masks you bought for Lois and yourself for the Halloween party that you are throwing.

Oh goody! I am running to the store now.

when I was about 10 a mean old neighbor lady said I didn't need to wear a mask. I was crushed---But rose above her mean remarks and now am a world renown beauty. hahahaha!!!!

Go enjoy! MB

Masks? Looks just like my second and third grade teachers.

Rob said...

I think delightful is the right word indeed! Very nice!

Jacob said...

@ B Squared - Very funnee! Was that school in Mishegan or Forte Lowderdell?

Jacob said...

@ Small City Scenes - I've seen your granddaughter so I'm quite sure that last statement is right on!

Jacob said...

@ VP - They really are pretty bad, aren't they?

Jim K said...

Cool masks. I am hoping to get out to our local haunted house this year.

Bibi said...

Masks for my KIDS? Nope. I'd like to have one all for me!!!

Jarart said...

Yikes!! Very frightening! But I guess that's the idea. The photo treatment made them even more spooky. Good work!

Don and Krise said...

Yikes! I've seen that in the mirror first thing in the morning.

OMG. Are you OK?

Lois said...

Fabulous shots Jacob and you are right, it's never too early! My grandkids have had their costumes for a couple of weeks already and have been wearing them around the house--Tinkerbell and Batman.

You did a very good job with my portrait! Thanks Jacob!

I wonder if some "night creme" or Mary Kay cosmetics might help the bad skin?!

Just back from a 4 day business trip to Los Angles! Play time in Malibu, Ronald Reagan presidential library in Simi Valley and Rotary club lunch meeting in Santa Monica. Back at home, we had snow this morning . . . more forecasted for tomorrow! Drats!

These faces of horror are capable of scaring off people! I wonder if you guys have a higher heart attack rate on Halloween night?

Marie-Noyale said...
