In each case he was wearing a white paper mask of a type used for cosmetic facials, a black hoodie, blue jeans, gloves and white tennis shoes, possibly Nike Air Max, with blue laces.

He was armed with a small blue steel revolver that resembled a starter’s pistol.

The mask is form fitting and has holes for the eyes, mouth and nose.
