Karen masks and wigs are a big Halloween trend: 'The scariest thing you can be on Halloween'

Pennywise? Yawn. Chucky, Jason and Ghostface? Puh-lease. If you really want to send chills down someone’s spine this Halloween, your costume has got to be Karen.

So says Kamoras Costumes, the Etsy retailer which bills its new — and fast-selling — latex rubber “Karen” mask as “the scariest thing you can be on Halloween.” Retailing for $180, the handmade mask is a riff on the viral “Karen” archetype — typically, a white, middle-aged woman who wants to speak to the manager or call the police — that’s picked up steam over the past year thanks to a series of highly publicized incidents involving anti-mask protests and complaints against Black people. This “Karen” sports the trademark choppy haircut, with yellowed teeth caught in an angry snarl and eyes reddened to a monstrous effect.

It’s one of two masks created by Kamoras Costume designer Jason Adcock, the other (now out-of-stock) dubbed “Karen-19” and featuring a sickly pallor and what appear to be fiery boils — a dig at those decrying mandates to wear face coverings in public.

“She thought she was slick calling you all sheep and look what happened,” Adcock — who has not yet responded to Yahoo Life’s request for comment — wrote in an Instagram post of the COVID-19-stricken character.

And while what happens this Halloween is anyone’s guess as the pandemic puts the kibosh on activities like trick-or-treating and spooky shindigs, it’s pretty clear that Karen is poised to be one of this year’s most popular costume trends — and could even edge out Joe Exotic.

Amazon has T-shirts emblazoned with “I Need To Speak To The Manager” alongside a name badge marked Karen, along with spiky, asymmetrical blond pixie cut wigs branded as “classic minivan Karen mom.” (One wig style, from the retailer Rubie’s, appears to have been repurposed from its original life as a tribute to TLC star and mom of eight Kate Gosselin, whose former hairdo is often associated with the Karen meme.)

Those clamoring for a couple’s costume need look no further than the “I’m With Karen” T-shirt, or the “Karen 2020: America Needs a New Manager” style.

Should you want to commit to the full Karen latex mask experience, you’ll need to act fast; Etsy lists the item as “low in stock.”

DING DING DING R6 the twisted racist loser has hit the racism jackpot here.

1x multiplier: Reversing the roles of hostile racists as the being the real victims.

2x multiplier: Employ racist Shaniqua trope that's been sitting in the back of your warped mind for some reason

3x multiplier: Connects being black with arson.

by Anonymousreply 909/15/2020

R6 is unfortunately right. The fact that white women like herself can no longer have black people forcibly removed from public spaces or murdered without criticism shows a worrying anti-white (supremacist) trend in our country.

The people that bitch andmoan that this is "racist" are the same people that see nothing wrong with costumes that incorporate blackface and Native American headdresses, or are based on sexualizing non-White females (e.g. the sexy Japanese girl costumes). Take that same advice you dish to 'the others' and stop being so sensitive and easily triggered.

This is the same shit that was thrown at Hillary Clinton by Obama bros (yelling "iron my shirts" at her during the Dem primary) and later Bernie bros. There is nothing political about a "Karen". She could be any type of voter. The lefty psychos are pretending she is "racist and republican" as an excuse for their lowlife misogyny.

Where is the "Karen's husband" mask? Where is the "Log Cabin Gay" mask? Plenty of right-wing types to pick on, but let's go ahead and pick on a woman, and since she's white, so much the better!

by Anonymousreply 4509/16/2020

^ Yet another Karen having an episode wondering what the commotion is all of the sudden about thousands of videos and experiences being shared of middle aged white women being racist, threatening and in many instances homicidal towards minorities.

Using feminism as a shallow veneer for your racism is unfortunately not going to cut it this time.

Of course, the real issue to R45 seems to be that this deep rooted, centuries lasting racism that continues today is being brought to light and not that it's actually happening.

Screaming 'misogyny' and white middle aged tears won't get you out of the spotlight should you decide to do something foolish like trying to have a black family kicked out a swimming pool because you don't like the sight of them or intentionally phoning the police hoping they'll murder a black person on your behalf.

This is what we're talking about. This is the racist violence you're issuing excuses for and denying. No more. We've had quite enough of racists and those that cover up for them.

R58 The epidemic of racism in this country that has spanned hundreds of years that you're just now being forced to acknowledge as a white person is not a "foreign operation to divide." You are a denialist that uses the pretense of "unity" to dismiss the reality of racism.

The racist white LIBERAL counterpart to the foaming-at-the-mouth racist conservative Malcolm X warned about.

You want to sing Kumbaya and stick your fingers in your ears without acknowledging there is a problem to begin with. It's akin to Holocaust denialism.

by Anonymousreply 61Last Thursday at 12:16 PM

I believe there's a strong theme of misogyny in this karen trend. Are there a ton of videos showing bitchy white women? Sure the Hell are -- but there's tons of assholes in other demographics NOT being recorded and shared because it's rare that anyone is going to stand close to men, gloating about recording, when they're losing their shit.

Same with recording people of other races, because it would look suspiciously racists (which yes it would be.) So we're left with it being safe to record white middle aged women because contrary to what's insinuated, it's for the very reason that they are NOT a threat, as it's being made out to be. If people felt in danger by these women acting out, they wouldn't be chasing them down, or openly in their face recording. Notice the lack of physical contact.

I don't blame vulnerable demographics for having a back up with camera evidence, but the absence of harrassment from anyone else but "Karens" should be considered before pretending that's the biggest threat in America. There's an entire system ruining the lives of minorities, but we're not supposed to look beyond the curtain.

No, what you believe is that because women are marginalized in society as well it gives them a pass to be as racist and homicidal as they'd like to be. What we're talking about here-- white women calling the police on black people or yelling "GUN!" when there's no gun in order to have black people assassinated is not the sanitized "bitchiness" you've conned yourself into believing it is-- it's attempted murder. It's racist violence. Violence that you think white women have no responsibility to own because sexism exists.

Emmitt Till was tortured, mutilated and killed on the words of a white woman that knew the power she wielded over both men and women who are black and brown in society. You do NOT get to blame the patriarchy or mental illness for the cornucopia of racist women that are now being filmed as the technology to DOCUMENT these crimes becomes more readily available.

That mask looks like a meth addict, not a Karen. Karen have perfect white veneered teeth and meticulously cared for skin and hair. Part of their entitlement is they've had access to the best of everything and they're STILL not happy.

by Anonymousreply 66Last Thursday at 1:39 PM

When these women filmed are identified they are 9/10 either business owners, occupy high skilled level jobs, or are otherwise fully functioning members of society. White Liberals diagnosing them over the internet baselessly with no qualification or evidence at all in order to abjure them of any responsibility for their actions is a racist coverup and it is NOT fooling the tens of millions of people that live this reality day in and day out.
