I know there’s a lot of craziness going on out there, but if you’re one of those people who dresses up for Halloween and want to be as scary as you can be, this year, a Los-Angeles-based artist has you covered.
While scary is a must, it’s also a good idea to go with something topical. You know, something, or someone who is relevant. And nobody has been more “relevant” during this crazy 2020 than “Karen.”
Heck, Time magazine even named Karen it’s “Person of the Year.”

“She’d like to speak to your manager,” Time said, and boy would she.
Karen is, after all, in charge of everything in America, from masks and social distancing, to your misbehaving children, to fast-food workers messing up her drive-thru window order, and more.
Several “Karens” have made national headlines this year, including Central Park “Karen” Amy Cooper who went viral after calling the police on a black birdwatcher in New York City, and San Francisco “Karen” who called police on a man who was writing a Black Lives Matter sign in chalk in front of his own home.
Without “Karen,” America could not function as a proper society — and she never misses an opportunity to remind us exactly of that.
Welp, as Los Angeles-based artist Jason Adcock sees it, Karen is the “scariest thing you can be on Halloween,” this year.
As reported by WFLA, Adcock is capitalizing on Karen’s infamous notoriety with two versions of his “Karen” mask on Etsy.
The masks are made with latex and feature a “personal paint job, styled hair and lashes,” Adcock wrote in the description.
“Sculpted, molded, cast, painted and finished myself. Vision slits above the eyes and and additional vents in mouth, nose, and ears. Mask is one size, fits most (I have a large head and fits me). If mask is too big you can glue a bit of sponge to the inside top.”
One “Karen” is covered in warts.

“2020 is the year of KAREN! Scare all ur friends with ur big hair and narrow mind,” wrote Adcock.

Adcock says his “Karen” masks portray “the real monsters of 2020.”

And if you’re really not into wearing a mask, but want to avoid that lady, this lady came up with an idea that works for her.
At any rate, if I don’t get a chance to say it, later, have a safe and happy Halloween. Oh — and do watch out for the Karens, won’t you?
