Rubber Bungee Robber Spiders

This is a hat with eight dangling elastic cords. Each cord is adjustable for length, and has a dull hook at the end. It’s worn as a kind of disguise, probably for bank robberies.

Two cords grapple a person’s mouth, one on each side, to pull a wide grin. Two more are for the nose, to stretch the nostrils upward. The last four cords are hooked to belt loops, to keep one’s trousers up.

       Surely another pair to work the eyelids?

       Amos, you're barmy.

       That'll baffle security. It's a bit like dazzle painting for humans.

       This is one of the weirdest things i've seen for a bit, and it made me laugh. if that's not a reason to bun, i don't know what is.

       Stop that or your face will freeze that way!

       At least you'll keep a stiff upper lip.   

       ... excuse me? Is the purpose of this ostensibly to shock bank clerks and innocent bystanders into submission, instead of with the threat of a weapon?   

       For added surprise, you could add some sort of solenoid device to the armatures and have them comically work your various dangling parts up and down and to and fro for that extra bit of jittery fun.

[MB] Did you mean "local" instead of "village", or is this intended for construction workers, highway cops, sailors and Native Americans?

Most likely, [qt75rx1], but it might give a crook pause if the bank clerk and all the bystanders were wearing these.
