As we gear up for Halloween, I thought it a perfect time to round up all of the frightening masks we've featured at Trend Hunter. And boy, are there plenty to choose from. In the slideshow below, you'll see scary squid masks, grotesque surreal masks, chainmail-inspired face shields, and a shoe mask that looks like a muzzle.

What's perhaps most terrifying about these frightening masks is that the designers offer these creepy creations year-round.

Implications - Many consumers relish in being able to adapt different personalities or engage in particular fantasies. Businesses that create products that enable consumers to explore a wide range of traits and visions will likely see favorable returns amongst consumers with large imaginations.
