Halloween Icon Mash-Ups

In making a demon witch prop for my yard haunt this year, I've inadvertently started a heated debate with some of my ghoul fiends. The argument arose over whether I should "pick a lane" and either make a demon or a witch, but by merging two icons of Halloween, I am bringing disorder and dishonor.

After some brief research on my favorite mask shop (Trick or Treat Studios), I came across these Halloween mash-up masks that seem to combine at least two big concepts. It seems to me that mash-ups when done right are quite spectacular. (Don't even get me started on Steampunk which is the very definition of a mash-up.)

Frankenstein meets Skeleton:

Leatherface meets Clown:

Dia de los Muertos meets Zombie:

Ghoul meets Pumpkin meets Candy Bag
