The Perfect (Easy!) Halloween Costume Fix For All You Lazies

We understand if not everyone is as into Halloween as we are. Well, actually we don't understand, but if you need a no-hassle costume, we can help you out. Downtown shop Screaming Mimi's, typically known for its insane selection of by-the-decade vintage, is also home to some beautiful masks that anyone can pull off, come the, uhhh, witching hour. From eye-patch to full on Venetian masquerade, the pieces are all designed to flatter the face, while keeping some (always needed) mystery. Plus, check out the half-face mask that's kind of Phantom of the Opera, kind of Lady Gaga. And sure, they'll set you back $60 to $188, but these things are so timeless and so well made, they're bound to last you for a few more All Hallow's Eves to come. Click through to peep the looks and choose which you'd wear to wow your friends without any effort.
