V for Vendetta Guy Fawkes Mask


Do you long for vigilante justice? A chance to strike at the power elite? This molded plastic V for Vendetta Mask gets you into character, concealing your identity behind the blank expression of a Guy Fawkes mask, as seen in the “V for Vendetta” movie. No danger of slippage during your deft sword displays: V for Vendetta Mask is anchored by an adjustable elastic headband. The Guy Fawkes mask is a stylized depiction of Guy Fawkes, the best-known member of the Gunpowder Plot. The plot was an attempt to blow up the House of Lords in London on 5 November 1605, in order to restore a Catholic head of state. The use of a mask on an effigy has long roots as part of Guy Fawkes Night celebrations. A stylized portrayal of a face with an oversized smile and red cheeks, a wide mustache upturned at both ends, and a thin vertical pointed beard, designed by illustrator David Lloyd, came to represent broader protest after it was used as a major plot element in V for Vendetta, published in 1982, and its 2006 film adaptation. After appearing in Internet forums, the mask became a well-known symbol for the online hacktivist group Anonymous, used in Project Chanology, the Occupy movement, and other anti-government and anti-establishment protests around the world. This is the officially licensed mask from the movie V for Vendetta.
