With Halloween just three months away, chances are you're in the market for a new costume. With that in mind, would you be willing to shell out a hefty sum for your very own Casey Anthony Mask? Yes? No?


With more than 111 bids at midmorning today, the latex and rubber novelty is one hot item on eBay.

So far, the mask -- which eerily resembles the 25-year-old woman -- has currently drawn a top bid of $25,100.00, but there are still hours left until the auction closes at 9 p.m. EDT.

"Forget Freddy, Jason, Meyers, here's your chance to scare the *#&% out of everyone and win every costume contest with this amazing Tot Mom latex rubber mask, possibly the most frightening mask on the planet," reads the item description on the online auction website.

The seller, identified only as "prophunter," said he can "almost guarantee" it is the only Casey Anthony mask on the planet. According the seller, the mask is one of nine and was sculpted for a parody video by pop artist and sculptor Torro.

"This one is in excellent condition and it is numbered six of nine. ... No matter what your opinion of the trial is, this is still one heck of a conversation piece," the auction summary states.

On July 5, a jury of seven women and five men acquitted Anthony of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee. The jury did, however, find Anthony guilty of four lesser counts of lying to police officers about the disappearance of her child -- a decision she is appealing. Credited with good behavior and time served, Anthony was released from jail on July 17. Her current whereabouts are unknown.

"I bet Nancy Grace would love one of these," the seller wrote in the e-Bay listing, adding, "Let's never forget poor Caylee."
