It's October, so naturally it's time to begin your Halloween costume planning. This might be a good place to start — if you're looking to give your friends the creeps.

Some may dress up as something topical, such as Barb from "Stranger Things" or Zombie Sandy from "Grease." Maybe you'll dip a toe into the political realm and go as one of the presidential candidates. Or maybe you keep it classic and pull out your old ghost or scarecrow costumes. The possibilities are endless. But if you really want to scare your friends, these giant cat masks should do the trick.

These intricate creations are the work of Japanese artist Houseto Sato and while we've got to respect the craft and dedication that goes into a work of art like this, do we really need massive, ultra-lifelike cat head masks floating around out there in the universe?

According to Lost at E Minor, each individual cat head takes three months to complete and will run you $5000. You can adopt an ACTUAL cat for about 50 times less than that.
