It's the many possibilities to have fun on bank holidays like Halloween and carnival that we all enjoy so much. It's easy to turn into something strange, freaky, sinister or funny and behave just crazy. A chance we don't have very often in our everyday life. (neighbours and collegues surely would look askance at you and consider you mad!) On Halloween though, we're allowed to do all that and, if we're lucky, we'll even be praised for having managed to turn into someone completely different.
To reach this target, we recommend you take a look at our selection of Halloween Horror Masks. They will help you to turn into a completely different person and emphasize your costume. Halloween Horror Masks and especially movie star masks are a great opportunity to turn into someone special or into a celebrity.

The use of masks during ceremonies, rituals and festivities has its origins in ancient pagan traditions. All over the world you will find the use of masks and often they are considered to have magic or religious powers. In religious ceremonies masks are used to create a mysterious atmosphere. It is interesting to see that not only the traditional use of masks is the same in lots of different cultures, but also the physical properties of the masks.
Nowadays masks are associated with movie characters, films, art, theatre or with halloween and carnival. And although the modern use of masks quite differs from the old traditions, they still create an exciting and mysterious atmosphere for the person who wear it and the audience. Even though the traditional use of masks has changed, our use of masks during carnival and Halloween origins in the same need to escape everyday life.
