Very cute or you can spend less and get a plain orange wooden or plastic bead and put your own face on it. These are nice in that they hand down long enough to be seen even being worn by some one with long hair. I made a pair but did not put a face on them so I could wear then at Thanksgiving. I will post a picture. I guess I could have applied a face with black tape cut outs and then peeled them off after Halloween.
