Reader: James Holmes Halloween mask in very bad taste

Would you pay $500 for a mask of James Holmes? One was offered last week on eBay for $500.

And then would you wear it out in public?

Says Jevan:

Of course in America, leave it up to us to leave no opportunity alone to make a few bucks at any cost. Very bad taste.

What do you think of this James Holmes mask? What's the worst Halloween costume you've ever seen?
