Photos: James Holmes ultra-realistic Halloween mask listed on eBay for $500

Big photos below.
No, it's not surprising that someone would create a mask of accused Aurora theater shooter James Holmes just in time for Halloween -- not given the continuing fascination with the man at the center of various James Holmes is Innocent Facebook pages.

But the item itself, seen from two angles in a still-active eBay listing that sets the initial bid at $500, is still disturbing, as you'll see in larger photos on view below.

The listing, which expires a little more than a week from now, features the following description:

Halloween is only a month away. SHOCK EVERYONE YOU KNOW! He was referred to as "The Joker", "The Dark Knight Shooter," "The Ilama," "The Extraordinary Gifted" but his real name is JAMES HOLMES! There is nothing more scary than crawling into James Holmes mind and wearing his face. His "soul penetrating eyes" and "The Joker" orange hair makes this mask the most disturbing object you will ever own. Imagine owning the mask of supposedly the most dangerous mass murderer in US history. This is a high quality latex rubber mask which was custom designed for a private collector overseas. I won this mask playing high stakes poker tournament when I was in Europe. I guaranty you that this is the only mask in the world and it is practically priceless because it was used in the production of the most controversy documentary which will come out in 2013. This mask is sold as is and there are no returns. If you have 0 feedback and you are interested to bid on this item you have to contact me first. I will ship the mask immediately after I receive the payment. Good luck!
No additional details about the documentary noted above -- and no bids thus far for the mask, which reflects Holmes's previous look, as opposed to the one captured in his most recent (and controversial) mug shot. Maybe it's even too creepy for Holmes obsessives. Or perhaps the price is too high -- in many different ways.

First off don't  to judge me because you do NOT know me. I do NOT agree in giving anyone the attention that has committed a crime. This is just wrong. That is your OPINION of the DA and Aurora police dept,  do not judge me on a simple comment I made because we are still trying to heal from this tragedy.

Its Disgusting, Absolutely agree & I hope this does NOT sell....However- Its rather Hypocritical of many you because there are Charles Manson Outfits/Masks/Tshirt Sales, Etc- John Wayne Gacy Clown mask, Art prints, Etc- MANY MANY Murderers/Killers...Um, HOW MANY TIMES do you See HITLER as a costume and this one is no different so why I agree its Sick its NO different from the others being glorified & used.

this is DISGUSTING and not even funny. My family has been affected by this by losing a friend of my daughters. I had several friends in that theater that night.  I hope someone takes action to get this crap taken down its not worth anything.

None of you would even bat an eye if it wrre a Ted Bundy or Charles Manson mask! Get over it, people have a sick nature to glorify psychopaths. So quit posting about this shit and giving the guy the attention he wanted in the first place.

I agree with Kelli...it'd be justification for at least a right hook to the jaw.

I would feel inclined to punch the person wearing that. Then say, "Wha? Too soon?"

Then by your account , they should be removing all policeman costumes as well .

Holmes isn't personally responsible for every single bullet fired that found human flesh . If you believe this , you'll fully trust ANYONE who is NOT personally involved ,

HANDLING THE MONEY !!!
