If you happen to be looking at this product description then one of the following things is certain: either you are a fan of the Deadpool movies starring Ryan Reynolds and you thought having a Deadpool mask would be pretty cool; or you’re looking for a costume for Halloween or a comic convention and dressing as Deadpool seemed like a no brainer given how popular the character is right now; or you need a nerdy gift for the special someone. Whatever the case, you came to the right place.
Though Deadpool as a character has existed on the pages of comic books since the early 90s, he recently experienced a resurgence in popularity in the 2010s alongside many other comic book characters when the movies based on superheroes and villains started growing in number and doing well in the box office. Ryan Reynolds portrayed the ‘Merc with a mouth’ in 2016 and the rest was history. His ability to convey witty banter and emotion with his face hidden behind a near expressionless red mask sold Deadpool as a character to a wholly new set of fans and made merchandise like this Deadpool mask fly off the shelves.
So, if you are looking for the perfect headpiece to compliment your already existing Deadpool costume that you bought, then look no further. This mask is based on the design of the Deadpool costume from the movie but still bearing a strong resemblance to the classic Deadpool from the comics will be perfect for you. Made from textured latex material, the mask is flexible enough to fit most head sizes whether male or female. The material is also rigid enough with the right contours to give you that Deadpool look from the movies. And do not worry about your eyes showing through the front of the mask because the eyeholes are covered with a white mesh material that gives the mask an authentic look while still allowing you to see out of them.
Regardless of what you want to use this mask for, you should bear in mind that wearing it for long periods of time can be uncomfortable because the latex material can make you hot and sweaty. Also, the color is more of burgundy than red so bear than in mind when choosing a costume to go along with the mask.
