One of the great advantages of being able to make your own Halloween costumes is you can add a little gruesome flair if you desire.
You can take an ordinary Little Red Riding Hood costume, for example, and pair it with make-up that makes you look pale and dead.
Add a few red make-up scratches on your face, arms, and legs so it appears that you didn’t get away from the wolf unscathed.
Along those same fairy tale lines, you could add a few extra touches to your Snow White costume, too. Pick up an inexpensive garden gnome at your favorite yard sale or store then use red pain to make it appear that he’s met a gruesome end.
If you have power tools, you can just remove the head and apply red paint along the edges. Make sure to add a few touches of red make-up to your costume and hands.
Invest in a fake machete as one of your Halloween costume accessories.
Halloween Scary Creatures
If you want to make your own Halloween costumes, you might want to focus on the animal kingdom. Spiders are a good example. Although they may seem like an awful complicated design for a do-it-yourself costume, you can make yourself into a human spider pretty easy. First, you’ll just need black clothes or leotards to wear.
Plain black is the most preferable choice. Next, you can purchase cheap pairs of pantyhose (in black, of course). You’ll need four pairs. Stuff them full of dark colored paper to fill them out so they look like legs.
Sew them shut and pin them to your other clothes in appropriate places (four on each side). You can add some dark make-up to your face and throw in a pair of fangs to cover your human teeth then you’re already to create your very own spider web.
When it comes to Halloween and fangs, no creature is scarier than a vampire. You can create this costume pretty easily as well as long as you pair it with the right Halloween costume accessories.
First, remember that most vampires are dark and gothic in appearance so choose appropriate clothes: a dark suit for guys or a black dress for women. You’ll definitely want some blood-tipped fangs to give you the hungry blood-sucker look.
Some make-up to look your skin look paler is also a nice touch, as is a black wig or modern vampire hair to top off the look. If you’re going as part of a couple, the non-vampire can have bite marks on their neck, as well as the white make-up.
Children and adults can both enjoy going to their next party as a bunch of grapes. Here’s an easy way to your own Halloween costumes based on this favorite of the produce department. Decide first if you want to be green or purple grapes then purchase matching a set of sweatpants and sweatshirt in that color.
Now get some green or purple latex balloons in that same hue and blow them up. Then attach them all over your sweats. Finish off the look with the appropriate shade of face paint. You’ll look positively delicious!
With the right Halloween costume accessories, you’ll easily be able to make any costume more creative.
Plus, when you make your own Halloween costume you’ll have the ability to make your scary or funny vision come to life.
Be sure to send us photos of the costume you create and share your fabulous ideas with others who need some creativity in their own Halloween attire.
