Many people love to attend Halloween events and parties every year. Part of the fun and excitement is dressing up and being as scary as possible with costumes and masks.
Of course, we have all seen the popular masks worn by those looking to frighten people. This includes masks such as Michael Myers, Jason Vorhees, Freddy Kreuger, and other horror icons.
Well, it seems that this year there could be a whole new – and somewhat unexpected – trend for Halloween. Introducing the new ‘Karen’ Halloween mask, which is designed to really give people the fright of their lives!
So, Who Is Karen?
Clearly, there is no horror icon around called Karen, so who exactly is this Halloween mask based on? Well, many of us have heard the name Karen banded around more than ever before this year.
The name is a stereotypical one given to middle-aged women who have been seen behaving in certain ways in the news and social media. This includes women who act in a racist way, complain about everything, and act totally unreasonably.
Of course, it is a little unfair because many women called Karen are perfectly lovely. However, thanks to ‘Karen’ memes and posts, and GIFs, the name has now been tarnished.
This is something we have seen more and more of over recent months. Unjustified as it is, the name Karen will never be looked at in the same way again.
To many people, the name Karen now brings up images of a middle-aged battleax. As such, an Instagram user has come up with the idea of the mask, enabling Halloween revelers to become Karen for the night.
The name Karen has become linked with negativity because of the type of a person it is commonly associated with these days. The mask depicts someone who looks not only negative and angry but also downright frightening.
According to the description, 2020 is the ‘year of the Karen.’ With its big hair, bulging eyes, and narrow-minded vibe, this is a mask that is sure to make you stand out.
Be Unique, Be Karen!
So, if you plan to go out this Halloween, be different and look unique. Forget about the usual horror icon masks that everyone will be wearing.
Instead, choose the Karen Halloween face mask and give your friends and family a fright and a laugh at the same time. All you need is a little narrow-minded attitude to pull off your scary costume perfectly.
