About Scarecrow Masks
Something dark and spidery creeps between the rows of ripening corn, its face a rotten burlap sack crudely embroidered with human features. A scarecrow mask trades on the uncanny valley effect produced by the almost-human qualities of the scarecrow. It makes for an ideal Halloween mask with its loose fit, unpolished appearance, and quietly terrifying aspect. A typical scary mask is made of burlap or some other coarse or rough material in order to enhance the sense of authenticity and to conceal that the wearer is human at all, but latex imitations of film props are another popular option among film buffs and costume enthusiasts. These include the warped psychiatrist Jonathan Crane, also known by the moniker Scarecrow, from Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy and many other iconic movie monsters and madmen. Together with a ragged ensemble made up of torn clothing and graced with a bit of straw, corn husks, or other cornfield detritus, it makes for a convincing effect. You can find a scarecrow mask in the vast inventory of costumes available on eBay.
