Ashley Todd is the frugal choice for this year’s Halloween costume this year: All you need is a bloated, glassy-eyed stare, some lipliner, and an unsteady hand. These masks of Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, on the other hand, are a little steep at $79 a pop, especially for the recently laid off. Which means odds are there won’t be so many people wearing them. They’re guaranteed to scare — or at least be kind of a downer. [Ben and Hank via DealBreaker]
