Casey Anthony Mask Sells for $999,900


If the world isn't plucking crazy enough... The current ebay bid for this mask is $25,100!!! What is it?
Halloween is only a few months away. Forget Freddy, Jason, Meyers, here's your chance to scare the *#&% out of everyone and win every costume contest with this amazing Tot Mom latex rubber mask, possibly the most frightening mask on the planet. And I can almost guarantee it's the 'only' Casey mask on the planet. Sculpted to precision for a parody video by enigmatic pop artist / sculptor Torro, only 9 of these film props were made for production and I got my hands on a few after the video wrapped. One of the best Halloween masks I've ever seen. This one is in excellent condition and it is numbered 6 of 9. I kept one for myself because I know these will be priceless. A significant piece of crime history. No matter what your opinion of the trial is, this is still one heck of a conversation piece. I bet Nancy Grace would love one of these. Fits most heads sizes comfortably. Let's never forget poor Caylee. Production used prop, item sold as is. Free shipping in the Cont. U.S. Feel free to ask any questions. International shipping, ask me for a price quote. Good luck.
Torro? Marco Torro, pop artist? Marco Toro* perhaps? Was he really involved in this sicko schiatt? Movie, what movie? Why only 9 made, why so many?

The seller appears credible:

So far this piece has generated 89 bids. Can this be serious? Do folks have so much money to piass around for what may well be a joke? America is nuts. Deficit, debt limit and default mean nothing compared to this auction.

To get a sense just how whack this auction is, take a gander at the Bid Retraction and Cancellation history thus far... The number and value of these adjustments is remarkable.

ebay is a microcosm of American lifestyle. Indeed it is and what a scary thought it is to view the CA mask presentation in its for-real context. It is with morbid fascination that all the red, white and blue crowd will await the FINAL sale price. OMG! ROTFLMAO!

Mr. Toro should have used this shot as the mask template. Casey looks so much more sanguine. But the teeth would have been a HARD reproduction, probably, right? On second thought, the real mask makes her look addled, pin headed and a bit Vulcan. Hmmm. OK, just a digression, then.
