I realize that the early 1960s were in many ways a more innocent time. . .
. . . but I still can't fathom that there could have been any era in which these ski masks didn't strike instinctual horror into the hearts of all who saw them:
I mean, seriously-- EEK!
In my quest for a decent photo of these monstrosities (from Easy-to-Make Fashions: For the North South East West), I came across this "nightmare ski mask" and an even more horrifying selection of ski masks.
Feel free to blame me for the nightmares.
