If you're a big enough fan of American Horror Story: Freak Show, you might be interested in owning a prime example of this season's terrifying costumes. One of the most recognizable costume items from AHS: Freak Show is Twisty the Clown's mask. After Twisty died, Dandy adopted the perma-smile, and replaced his predecessor as a serial killer. Sure, Twisty's mask is almost synonymous with murderous rampage, but for the AHS super fan, it doesn't matter. Whether you're looking ahead for a Halloween 2015 costume, or just want to have a terrifying clown mask sitting around, you're in luck, because you can actually buy Twisty's mask online.
Twisty's mask had a very interesting backstory. Twisty, who was a rejected and ridiculed clown from the circus, tried to kill himself but instead blew his jaw off, leaving him to cover up his mouth with the mask. The mask, which is always smiling, definitely added to the creep factor of Twisty as a serial killer — not to mention it's a creepy component of clowns all together. So where should you go to buy Twisty's — and now Dandy's — signature killer mask? Here are three handmade replicas to get you through the rest of American Horror Story: Freak Show's season.
Option one is a leather Twisty the Clown inspired mask that you can buy on Etsy. It's kind of Jim Careey-esque in The Mask, because of the jaw. It's $158.29, which isn't cheap, but for fans of the show, that might not even matter. Got to represent Twisty, right?
The second option is probably the best/ most realistic option, and one of the most affordable options. At $80, you can own this replica Twisty the Clown hard resin mask from Etsy.
The least expensive Twisty mask, at only $25, is a handmade option — which you can see the making of here. It's certainly a great replica of Twisty's mask, and if you're not ready shell out big bucks, definitely the most practical option.
Last, but certainly not least, this Twisty the Clown mask is your best bet if you're looking for the entire look. The mask isn't sold separately, you buy the entire Twisty the Clown custom-made costume when you throw down the asked for $1,200 on eBay.
