We are picking up the thread here with another set of WIZARD OPTIONS (that was an echo effect, by the way).
|It's all about options or the agony of having them as the case may be|
I'll tell you why not. Look at those sad bastards up there. Seriously, you'd end up sweating and breathing your own candy scented breath and it would get all weird in there. And where are the bloody eyeholes? The virtue of these masks is that you get the beard, you get the very tall hat and a bonus crooked wizard nose (see witches for more information). The doom of these mask, aside from the aforementioned breath-cum-latex funk, is that these wizards hardly look capable of a simple cantrip, much less fathoming the mysteries of the universe.
If you have a red bathrobe, big brown shoes and a sense of humor, item three, the Sorcerer's Apprentice hat with the Mickey ears is a great costume choice. Almost instant recognition. Doing it with some evil facepaint for a really nice effect is just gravy.

Much like the classic Halloween witch costume you have options for being a wizard, but you must be recognized as a wizard for the costume to work. Robes, hats, beards, staves, occult paraphernalia of all types are the keys to being recognized or you can go with an evil wizard. Heck, you can go high concept, get some undead makeup and combine it with any of these costumes (preferably the evil ones) and be a LICH. The choice is yours, wizard.
Of course there is always Merlin...
Have fun and keep your pumpkins lit.
