Terrifying image, isn’t it? That’s not a photo of the real James Holmes though. It’s of some guy wearing a James Holmes rubber mask that was recently put up for auction on eBay. Holmes’ mug is infamously known after footage of him looking blank and indifferent was shown after The Dark Knight Rises shooting in Aurora, Colorado.
eBay user realface13 set a starting price of $500 for the rubber mask, which he described as a truly creepy thing to behold. The listing read:
There is nothing more scary than crawling into James Holmes’ mind and wearing his face. His ‘soul penetrating eyes’ and ‘The Joker’ orange hair makes this mask the most disturbing object you will ever own. Imagine owning the mask of supposedly the most dangerous mass murderer in US history.
The mask didn’t get any bids though. eBay has since pulled it from the site explaining that the mask failed to meet their Offensive Materials policy. You can get a closer look at the mask after the break.
