‘The Karen’ will be the most popular Halloween costume of 2020

With Halloween 2020 less than two months away, many Americans are starting to plan current outfits to celebrate the occasion.

And while there is no shortage of new celebrity figures in the year – from Tiger King’s Carole Baskin to Doctor Anthony Fauci of the White House Task Force Coronavirus – it seems many will just dress up as a nondescript white woman in a suburb.

According to an article published in Vice on Wednesdays, ‘Karen’ costumes will be the hottest Halloween outfits of 2020.

‘Karen’ has recently been used as a slang term for a white woman seen as justified, demanding, or racist.

This year, dozens of videos have gone viral on the internet in which ‘Karens’ called the police for black people and yelled at supermarket clerks about face masks.

According to an article published in Vice Wednesday, “Karen” costumes will be the hottest Halloween outfits of 2020. Los Angeles-based artist Jason Adcock has started selling custom Karen face masks on his Etsy page for the price of $ 180 (pictured)

“The scariest thing you can be on Halloween !!!!” Adcock’s custom masks feature Karen’s face contorted in a fit of anger, with yellowing teeth, red eyes and blotchy skin

Los Angeles-based artist Jason Adcock has started selling custom Karen face masks on his Etsy page for the price of $ 180.

The product description reads: ‘The scariest thing you can be at Halloween !!!! Full head latex mask with hair. Sculpted, cast, cast and painted. ‘

The masks feature Karen’s face contorted in a fit of rage, with yellowing teeth, red eyes and blotchy skin.

‘I was at home in quarantine and wanted to make a new mask. I just started sculpting, and Karen came out, ”Adcock told Vice about how he came up with the idea for the masks.

“I’ve worked in the cosmetics industry retailing for most of my life, so I’ve seen countless Karens in their natural environment.”

Adcock says he has received some hate mail about his controversial creations.

“I’ve gotten a few death threats, a lot of people say it’s racist, or that I should disgust myself,” he said.

“But if all that’s bothering you right now is an angry lady’s rubber Halloween mask, you should wake up!”

Each mask takes up to four weeks to complete, so those who want to wear one on October 31st will need to place their order soon.

However, there are a number of other retailers that sell items to turn partygoers into authentic looking Karen.

It is likely that thousands of Americans will also dress up as White House Coronavirus Task Force doctors Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx.

Dr. Fauci is equally known for his signature eyewear, while Dr. Birx is famous for its range of silk scarves, which means the medics will be easy to imitate on October 31st.
