Hot Halloween Mask: Blago

By Marcus Gilmer in Miscellaneous on Oct 1, 2010 3:40PM

Hard as it is to believe, we're officially into October now and thus it's time to start planning our Halloween costumes. One shop has a pretty hair-raising suggestion that might or might not be all the rage this holiday: Blago. That's right, our former governor's visage may be a popular - and no less scary - option this holiday for the politically savvy party-goer. Fantasy Costumes had the masks made after apparently fielding tons of requests. The store's assistant manager Cathy Bunger told the Sun-Times, "We kept getting calls and calls and calls, and nobody had it; so we made something up." Of course, at a steep cost of $49, it'd better come with a Senate seat attached. But don't worry: Blago doesn't get a cut of any of the profits.
