This frightening chicken skin mask by Etsy artisan Electra781 may haunt your dreams this evening. The disturbing disguise is made from stitched chicken skin and accented with removable teeth, eyes and a nose ring.

Surprisingly, the chicken skin mask has a name, according to its creator: Eleanor Rigby. The disguise is just large enough to fit a petite woman's face, and the chicken skin has been preserved with Borax and sand for posterity.

We've seen a wave of unusual, artistic and sometimes downright scary masks in recent months. While this may be due to consumers' whimsical attitudes, mainstream society's increasing preference for personalization has caused designers to release creations that let niche markets explore their interests, whether they be beautiful or bizarre.
