A Halloween mask, also known as a Hallowe'en mask or a h'ween mask, is a holiday item that was introduced on 31 October 2002 as part of the 2002 Hallowe'en event. The Halloween mask comes in three colours: green, blue, and red. A Halloween mask covers the entire head of the wearer, similar to a full helmet.
Historically, the Green halloween mask has been the least expensive of the set. The Red halloween mask is the most expensive in recent history, although at times the Blue halloween mask is more expensive. In addition, the prices of these masks tend to rise during the month of October because of Halloween. During the spring and summer, the masks can drop in prices (varies accordingly) before a quick rise in price during the months of September and October. Interestingly, the ascending price order of the masks (green, blue, red) corresponds to the order of increasing combat level of dragons. The colours in the order are also the colours of the three major RuneScape gods (blue - Saradomin, red - Zamorak, and green - Guthix). Another possible connection could be made with the ascending levels of metal armour (green - adamant, blue - rune, red - dragon). The three melee skills also have these three colours, with green representing Strength, blue representing Defence, and red representing Attack. Although these are not official connections, they are notable. Recently, Halloween masks have been rising 2-3 million every 2 days, due to wealthy players buying them out of the grand exchange. However, it is common knowledge that rares (namely H'ween masks and Santa Hats) crash after their respective holidays.
After the Free Trade and Wilderness were re-instated, the prices of all wearable rares skyrocketed as a lot of users had returned to the game and wanted rares, or have staked and made a lot of money and wanted to invest in rares.

- At one time the price of the red h'ween mask surpassed that of the red partyhat. This happened approximately 1 month after the Halloween masks were released.
- Before the release of the dragon full helm, the red halloween mask would often replace the dragon medium helm as the helmet in a full dragon armour set (in fashion terms), because the dragon medium helm was too common.
- Originally, Halloween masks could be sold to General stores, but this is no longer possible due to the personalised shops update.
- On 24 April 2009 (as a hidden update), Jagex updated the way Halloween masks appear in players' chatboxes when they are having a conversation. The masks now look more evil and demonic than before.
- On 9 June 2010, the Court Cases update caused all halloween masks to appear red, regardless of their actual colour. This issue was fixed with an update within around 2 hours.
- In RuneScape Classic, the H'ween masks were just masks with strings on the back (To hold them to your face.) In the switch to RS2 they were changed to cover your entire head and neck.
