Get somebody you know to dress in. Hang out with them for a minute dressed up, then get them to take the head off in front of you. Maybe that would help?

First, think about WHY you are scared. It could be a traumatic incident as a child, etc. Then, think about your fear as though you're watching from the sidelines: is it really scary? Or can you see how it's not actually scary? Those are just a few starting tips. Hope it helped!

i know how you feel, but with me its just with any sort of costume where you cant see the persons face underneath. to conquer your fear you need to try and hug one or stand near it, even though it might sound scary but it might be your only option, hope it helps :)

If you can not face your fears alone, get professional help. Meanwhile, don't tell any teenagers about your phobia... even the ones who intend to help will usually hurt you instead.

The only way to get rid of your phobia it's to wait till you get 15+
