The Masks From 'The Purge' Are Still the Easiest, Most Terrifying Halloween Costumes You Can Get

lifestyle, the masks from 'the purge' are still the easiest, most terrifying halloween costumes you can get

Who could have guessed that, when The Purge came out in 2013, it would end up spawning a franchise that lasted five movies and a TV series — with a possible sixth movie coming sometime in the future. And some might say its success is due in part to the instant iconography, also known as all of those scary Purge masks.

When it comes to Halloween costumes, there’s a reason those masks endure. They’re immediately identifiable — as soon as you see those light-up Xs over the eyes, you know that the Purge has begun. They’re easy to wear, since all you really need is a mask and a hood, and you’re basically good to go (plus or minus a few bloody embellishments if you’re in the mood). And, most importantly, the costumes are scary as hell!

So, even though there wasn’t a new Purge movie this year, we’re still unsure when a sixth movie might be coming and the show (with its many, many Halloween masks) was canceled in 2019, these Purge Halloween costume ideas still feel fresh.
