The Tell-Tale HitThere are so many reasons to love the classic “master of horror” Edgar Allan Poe. Where would we be without this author? Without the hit, “The Raven” that is read in grade schools throughout the world? That would be such a boring, cheerful world where Halloween readings are centered on orange pumpkins and silly skeletons. This poet has been influencing authors that have provided us with spine tingles for a healthy century now. From The Pit and the Pendulum to The Mask of the Red Death, Poe captured the dread that lies dormant in all of us that is waiting to escape. Better to vent that anxiety while reading a story than while you’re driving in morning traffic, right? So, this Halloween, it’s time to pay tribute to the godfather of gothic, the father of fear: our man, Edgar Allan Poe. Product DetailsWith thick, black locks molded from a flexible, movable material, this mask fits over your head, letting you instantly transform into the distinguished author. You won’t even need to write a classic to be recognized as the haunted genius of the macabre that everyone knows and loves. With a contemplative expression and a black and gray color theme, this mask has the look of the ghost of Mr. Poe, visiting our world for one last reading of The Raven. Something Worth “Raven” AboutThis costume is perfect for library events, Halloween parties, and even ghost tours. Want to make this a look no one will ever forget?

A boring Halloween costume that fades into the ordinary? Nevermore.
