Circus and Halloween Masks via Flickr



Flickr has a seemingly endless collection of vintage masks,  from The Wizard of Oz to creepy 1950s pulp-fiction looking characters. Those Dick Tracy comic strip faces are downright outsider-art weird.  

Above are Gomez, Lurch, and Uncle Fester from the Addams Family (yikes!). The Addams Family masks were used by the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus.  (Thank you to Brechtbug)

Other factors come into play when choosing a Halloween mask, as well. In warm climates, full head masks may be uncomfortably hot, so a partial mask or decorative face painting may be better options.

Looking for any awesome, scary, funny or weird makeup ideas but sure these Halloween Mask are great options too. Just in time, I found your blog which is very interesting. Thanks for sharing and I do hope I could pin some nice photos on my Pinterest boards. Good day! :D
