Aunt Sponge Mask

The Aunt Sponge half mask reflects the lazy, gluttonous and selfish woman that she is.  She shares equally with her sister in her joy of torturing James.  Sponge plays a good game of support for her sister but in the end acts only in her own self interest.

This half mask is one of disdain and has become a favorite in the classroom.  Sponge loves to hate things.

Aunt Sponge:  I look and smell, I do declare, as lovely as a rose.  Just feast your eyes upon my face, observe my shapely nose.  Behold my heavenly silky locks, and if I take off both my socks, you’ll see my dainty toes.

Aunt Spiker: But don’t forget, my dearest Sponge, how much your tummy shows.
