Leather Welding Apron
Whether you’re Leatherface (always a classic) or a Keeper of the Fiery Pit, this Split Leather Welding Apron is an effective, inexpensive touch to your nefarious ensemble. At just $10.99, the rugged leather apron is double-stitched, adjustable for comfort, and comes with four pockets to store devices of death or Fun Size Snickers. As my yuppie zombie neighbor would say, “It’s a no-brainer!” Incidentally, the Leather Welding Gloves, at $4.99, coordinate fabulously.
Industrial Face Masks
Nothing is as unsettling as being confronted by someone wearing a respirator. Especially when they say stuff like, “I AM the League of Shadows!” or “Are you going to eat your steak fat?” Needless to say, they are cool apparatus to have as part of your villainous costume. This Gerson Dual-Cartridge Respirator gives off a menacing look that’s sure to enhance your malevolence and will certainly come in handy if the party hostess burns the bacon-wrapped dates. And at only $15.99, it’s a far cry less expensive than that Groot mask you’ve been eyeing. Another way to go is the Neoprene Dust Mask. Throw on a pair of black tint wraparound Oakleys and a Motley Crue wig with this bad boy and call yourself an interplanetary blue ninja assasin. Or Bane’s cousin… Blaine. Or throw on a half helmet and be an off-road zombie. Face it, it looks badass enough for a number of costume ideas, and for only $23.99, it’s a great accessory to keep in the costume drawer for future incarnations.
These awesome steampunk Welders Goggles come with both permanent and flip-front darkening lenses, and an elastic band to secure comfortably to your melon. They’d also go great with any of the aforementioned items to add that Tim Burton-esque touch to your getup. You don’t even have to wait for Halloween to wear them., they’re so swank. And for just $5.99?? I can’t believe we’re even having this conversation.
If the retro Mars mission motif is what you’re going for– or maybe this year you want to be Hazmat Guy– look no further than Harbor Freight’s Abrasive Blasting Hood! This intergalactic chapeau offers full head and shoulder coverage with a hard hat inside. It also provides ample air circulation to stay cool and comes with a wide, impact-resistant viewing window for easy navigation of the party or neighborhood. Comes in snazzy red and is priced at a mere $19.99.
Our long Rubber-Coated Blasting Gloves make a great addition to the Steampunk Mad Doctor, the Misunderstood Texas Butcher or the Alien Life Form from Another Planet Whose Sole Intention is “To Serve Man” (props to those who got that reference). It’s industrial strength and is made for easy dexterity of hands and fingers. At $6.99, you might as well get two pair– one for taking over the world and the other for pretending you’re taking over the world while you clean out the septic tank.
Another nice, and extremely affordable, touch for a number of Halloween getups is Harbor Freight’s popular Swivel Headlamp. Buy two and make them robot eyes shining out of a silver head. Strap one on your pooch’s noggin and they can be the Bionic Bowzer. Have your toddler wear a toy hard hat with one of the headlamps and– voilà!-- a Minor Miner! The Swivel Headlamp can be adjusted 90 degrees up or down and is lightweight, so it wears comfortably on the head. Only $2.99!
