In some seriously weird news,Â a latex mask modelled after the face of acquitted murder suspect Casey Anthony has launched a $25,000 bidding war on eBay. The Casey Anthony mask is described as a prop sculpted for a parody video and there is only nine of them in existence.
The eBay description for the Casey Anthony latex mask, which features slightly bulging eyes and a pouty bottom lip, says it was created by “enigmatic pop artist/sculptor Torro.” Casey Anth0ny wasÂ found not guilty earlier thisÂ month onÂ charges she murdered her two-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony.
“Halloween is only a few months away,” the description reads. “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.”
The seller, who goes by the eBay ID prophunter and has a 100% positive feedback rating from over 350 users, says the mask is “in excellent condition and it is numbered 6 0f 9.” The description concludes: “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.”
Bidding on the Casey Anthony mask has already reached $25,100 at the time of this post. However, such items as these in the past have been known to have had false bids put in to manipulate the price upwards. We’ll be interested to see if someone really is crass enough to pay over $25,000 for this creepy reminder of a terrible crime.
