I'll tell you what's really really annoying about doing these pictures - that's getting all the kit on, mask on etc. and then finding that the batteries in the remote are dead - remove mask, trudge downstairs, locate batteries and then back upstairs.

Probably why the cravat is on the wonk........

I need to find a way to cover the eyeholes up - must locate some black mesh from somewhere as I do need to be able to see sometimes - although the position of the holes is totally useless and I have to pull the mask up a bit to see out of them.

Great shot. This is what all clowns look like to me, I've never liked them.

Please tell me that the door bell rang and you couldn't be bothered to take the mask off when you answered it.

Great shot worth the trouble finding batteries, reminds me of an old fear of killer clowns

Thanks everyone - I am rather fond of this mask.

I'd not even try walking down the stairs in this mask if someone did knock on the door - visibility is dreadful and I'd probably break my neck - which might not be a good idea!

Funnily enough the only kids I know think I'm kinda cool - must be the mannequin/skeleton/skulls/headless action men & barbies - they seem to like that kind of thing Smile

As for Halloween - the door will remain firmly closed to any trick or treaters - I'd not mind them so much if they made a bit more effort but on the whole they barely even try Sad

You have got a bit of overspill with your lipstick dear.

How about stretching some bits of old tights over the eyeholes?
If bank robbers can see through them I am sure you can.

Yep - a bit sloppy applying the make-up I'm afraid Smile

I'll have to root about and see if I can find some suitable legwear to chop up - I seem to recall putting a ladder in a pair of stockings recently so they'll do.

He's got balloons now - but whether I'll have time to do anything with them this weekend is iffy.....
