Casey Anthony Rubber Mask Is Scarier Than the Real Thing

It isn't even September yet, but already Halloween lovers can get their Casey Anthony mask on eBay for the low, low price of $175, though it will probably go up. After all, it's a rare find and who doesn't want to be Casey Anthony -- the most vilified former defendant since OJ Simpson -- for Halloween?

Hmm ... I can think of a few people, myself included, who actually think it's a bit too soon. Personally, I would be afraid to wear it in public, especially when people are being attacked for just looking like Ms. Anthony.

The mask is pretty terrifying, too. Those blank eyes, the dead lips. It looks a lot like the real Casey Anthony. And it's all hilarious and cute to dress as Anthony until you realize who she is.


Let's face it: inappropriate Halloween costumes are pretty standard. I once had a pregnant friend dress up as Laci Peterson while her husband wore a fake rowboat and went as Scott Peterson. Yes, it was poor taste, but he was at least convicted.

Murderers are scary and they're perfect for Halloween. Think Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees, and Freddy Krueger. But they are all fictional. There are some costumes that are just inappropriate and bring the party down.

No one would show up as Adolf Hitler and expect big laughs unless they were A.) crazy, B.) drunk, or C.) all of the above. The same is true for Casey Anthony. Most of us believe that she got away with the murder of a young child, her own no less, so that she could party and live it up.

There is a time and a place to dress up as real news people, and that time and place isn't now. In fact, if you wear this mask in public, you do so at your own peril. Better to wear an Obama mask or Sarah Palin mask. At least people who hate you politically will only use their words.

If you want to be Casey Anthony in public, then wear it at your own risk. Even Casey Anthony herself wouldn't be caught dead with her face as she is likely planning to make some alterations to her real face.

And if she wore her face, dead might be where she ends up.

Do you think this mask is inappropriate?
