These Free Printable Masks Are About as Lazy as Halloween Costumes Can Get

You told yourself you wouldn't be one of those lame people who throws on a mask and shows up at costume parties, but here we are a day before Halloween and you still have nothing. Unless you want to endure endless ridicule, you can't skip dressing up altogether, but if you don't want to buy a pre-made costume your options are pretty limited.

As long as you've got a printer, all hope isn't lost. Here are some free, printable masks so your Halloween costume is just a click away.

1. Traditional Halloween Creature Masks

If you want to go the easy route and be one of the tried and true cast of characters, Mr. Printables has a collection of six different creatures including a cat, skull, and spider. Each mask has a downloadable file in both color and black-and-white versions so you can custom color it yourself if you want.

2. Batman Character Masks

Batman and any of his friends or enemies are always safe costumes. Patrick Sullivan designed three print-and-fold masks for Vulture—one for Batman, Bane, and Catwoman.

Head over to Vulture for the download files.

3. Minecraft Steve Mask

If you've got a printer, cutting utensil, a cardboard box and some glue, making your own Minecraft Steve costume is simple. Really pressed for time? Skip the box and just print out the face to make a 2D version instead.

4. Mark Zuckerberg Mask

Since his usual attire is just a hoodie and jeans, a Mark Zuckerberg mask makes for one of the easiest costumes ever.

The full-size printable file is available over on Gawker.

5. 'Orphan Black' Clone Masks

If you're a fan of the new sci-fi series Orphan Black, the show's official Tumblr has a printable mask for each of the seven clones. These would make a great last-minute group costume if your friends watch, too.

6. Polygon Mask

Not concerned with dressing up as a recognizable character? Grab some glue and print out this easy DIY polygon mask.

If the plain white version looks too boring, use black paper and add some glow-in-the-dark tape to spruce it up a bit.
