Halloween is upon as yet again. It is a time to celebrate this strangely diabolical holiday that glorifies a fascination with all things creepy and accosts us with morbid yet fun props and costumes. Be a sport and join in the fun. You do not have to go all out and ball out on a fancy costume or ghoulish props. I have the perfect last minute DIY costumes to get you in the party mood. Everything from Heroes and Villains themes to Horror Costumes and Creative Pop culture ideas.
This is a simple, horrific costume that always scores with party goers. Get yourself some bandage gauze and wrap it around yourself very untidily from head to toe. Leave part of your face exposed for seeing and breathing purposes. We don’t want you actually becoming a real mummy. Once that’s done, stain the gauze with dirt or if you are a germ freak, use cocoa powder to give it that ‘i just rose from the grave’ look. Remember the parts on your face you left uncovered, smear some ketchup on them for a gory flesh resemblance.
Be a walking trick or treat with this party favorite. Get a bunch of candies such as gummy bears, haribos, hard candies, lollipops and whatever else you can get your hands on. Put them in a lock zipper bag and break them into half their original size. Get an old brightly colored t-shirt and carefully using glue, stick the pieces of candy on the t-shirt to form a fun shape.
Man of Steel
Everyone’s childhood hero was Superman. I mean, everyone that was a cool kid. Why not dress up as your favorite super hero. This is how you do it. Get your sisters or girlfriend’s favorite pair of blue tights. Do not be ashamed. Support the cause against evil. LOL! Pick out any blue t-shirts from your wardrobe and make sure it is tight fitting. Print out the Superman emblem from the internet and slap it on your t-shirt using some glue. Find a long red fabric e.g. bed sheet and tie it as your cap. Proceed to overtly gel your hair and make sure one loose strand unassumingly falls on your face. Then walk out of a telephone booth ready to save the world.
Easily the easiest and laziest or most innovative costume EVER. Potaytoe Potato kind of argument. This costume has made an appearance at every single Halloween party for the past millennium. It is the gift that keeps on giving and we love it. Get an over sized white plain fabric, throw it on yourself and then color the eye areas BLACK. Yep! It’s done. You will look like Casper’s best friend, the friendlier ghost.
This is the best costume if you don’t want to talk to people. Release your inner introvert. Wear a black and white striped t-shirt and match it with black pants and white or black shoes. Get white gloves and a pair of suspenders to accessorize then apply white make up on your face. For the rest of the party remain silent and irritate the hell out of people by getting in their faces and gesturing.
