UPDATE, 11:17 AM: The listing for this mask has been removed from eBay
DENVER — “Shock everyone you know!” reads the description on the eBay page. The masked face staring back appears sure to do that.
With Halloween months away, someone has created a hauntingly-realistic mask of suspected Aurora theater gunman James Holmes, and is attempting to sell it on eBay for $500.
The seller’s profile on the online auction website was created on Sept. 2, 2011. This is the first item that has been listed from this account and the bidding on it expires a little more than a week from Friday.
“There is nothing more scary than crawling into James Holmes mind and wearing his face,” the listing reads. “His ‘soul penetrating eyes’ and ‘The Joker’ orange hair makes this mask the most disturbing object you will ever own.”
FOX31 has sent an email to the seller. We will let you know if we get a response. The full description of the item is listed below:
Halloween is only a month away. SHOCK EVERYONE YOU KNOW! He was referred to as “The Joker”, “The Dark Knight Shooter,” “The Ilama,” “The Extraordinary Gifted” but his real name is JAMES HOLMES! There is nothing more scary than crawling into James Holmes mind and wearing his face. His “soul penetrating eyes” and “The Joker” orange hair makes this mask the most disturbing object you will ever own. Imagine owning the mask of supposedly the most dangerous mass murderer in US history. This is a high quality latex rubber mask which was custom designed for a private collector overseas. I won this mask playing high stakes poker tournament when I was in Europe. I guaranty you that this is the only mask in the world and it is practically priceless because it was used in the production of the most controversy documentary which will come out in 2013. This mask is sold as is and there are no returns. If you have 0 feedback and you are interested to bid on this item you have to contact me first. I will ship the mask immediately after I receive the payment. Good luck!
