Answer:

Hmm depends what you’re looking for.

They’re very cheap ( Uk price is about £1) but they’re a bit small as they’re made for kids. But the blank, soulless eyes and blank or creepy smiles work well for creepy costumes and photo shoots.

Rubber masks vary from about £20 to upto £100+ for very high detailed, light up and furred masks. They tend to be easier to find around the holidays but you can pick them up anytime online.

You can get these in Halloween stores and fancy dress shops. Or online.

However, if you wanted a very detailed, robust mask you could commission an artist.
