ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Hugger head Leather Mask
Reminds me of the movie Alien
hmmmm….now that you mention it…
I’m going to assume that you’re not trying to be sarcastic, and that you really don’t know that H.R. Giger was the creator of the alien in Alien. And, that Facehugger was the name affectionately given to the alien (well, one stage of it, anyway). Check out this Alien Species Wikipedia page on it for more info: http://aliens.wikia.com/wiki/Facehugger
No not sarcastic, I’m just not as well read as you are.
Shit. You’re right!
ah, life with small children.
Like a cleaned-up version of Evil’s helm in Time Bandits…
As a fun add-on, I ran across the Museum Syndicate webpage. You can play with HR Giger’s works as puzzles! (There are also hundreds of other artists, of course.) http://www.museumsyndicate.com/artist.php?artist=561
Yeah, they’re doing it wrong. Mayhaps this would be better named as HeadHugger? What’s that thing from that videogame series, the one Portal spawned from? They had headhuggers a little more similar to this.
It’s nice otherwise. I wouldn’t wear it to a wedding, but it’s nice all the same.
You’re thinking headcrabs, from Half-Life.
Just wear a monocle so you don’t poke your eye out.
I’m running a sweepstake on how many of these Cory owns. Another for how many he’s allowed to keep at home.
You know, if you get any funny looks from RyanAir from wearing custom-tailored forward-pitching shoplifting^Wconcert festival vestments, wearing this ought to get you a pass. See if they confiscate your eggs over 3oz., though. (Tell me I have my fetish taxonomy right?)

I recently noticed that Jarritos [Twitter] became a sponsor on Boing Boing (you may well be seeing their ads here as you read this post).
Shain Erin is an artist who makes adorable dolls that any child would love to snuggle with. You can buy them in Shain's etsy store.
On September 20, 2011, "Don't Ask Don't Tell" will officially become past tense. More: Washington Post. Here's the document (PDF) memorializing the transition. (thanks, Gautam Ramdurai)
