Vato Loco Halloween Costume Mask

Inappropriate Halloween Costume #20

From the 2006 Archives:

The gang-banging Vato Loco (crazy dude) Halloween costume Mask caused quite a controversy when it first hit the market as activists asserted, "This is an absolutely grotesque stereotype that represents some people's images of Latinos." and "What's disturbing is that this caricature is mixed in with ghosts, ghouls and demons and is pitched being among the most frightening of images - it denigrates Latinos to being frightening."  Way to be socially sensitive.

The Vato Loco Halloween Costume Mask is available from Fright Catalog.
