James Holmes Halloween Mask?

Of all the terrible Halloween costume ideas of all time, perhaps the worst ever is this mask of accused Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooter, James Holmes, that has gone up for sale on Ebay. To say that this mask is in bad taste is to put the issue mildly. Just what possessed someone to make this item in the first place? Ebay did remove the listing. But, that doesn’t end the weird story behind the item.

Apparently, the item was custom made for someone, however he offered the item as payment in a high stakes poker game, and the guy who won the item didn’t want the item so offered it on Ebay. But, apparently Ebay found some new reason to ban the item, although the item didn’t appear to be in violation of any of their existing selling rules.

Regardless, this is a very strange item, and perhaps the worst Halloween item so far this year.
