We all know there’s a million and one ways to do your make up for Halloween and Festivals of the sort, and we all have memories of flipping through the Party City Halloween Catalog, skimming and searching for something with the right balance of sexy, scary and creative.
However, I tried to think outside of the box with these ideas, in hopes it would spark the creative interpretations for all of us!
- Jeepers Creepers – They’re finally coming out with the third movie! An awesome film, a freaky mask, why not run around a festival pretending it’s a cornfield?
- Soul Walker – Most of the costumes I decided on make an easy (and cheap) preparation, however, this is the one that takes time, money, and crafty hands. But if I were to see one of these things walking around a Halloween festival, there’s no doubt I would think they’re about to suck my soul!
- Spirit of ’76 in Zombie Form – I’m sure we’ve all seen this painting somewhere, whether in school textbooks or in a museum, it’s quite famous. Dressing as a patriot with two of your best buddies, with a drum stick and plastic flute, you have the freedom to turn this into one scary rendition.
- Meep From American Horror Story – The strangest damn Big Bird around. A majority of us have probably seen AHS: Freakshow, and there’s plenty of amazing costume ideas you can use from there. Though I imagine most of us forget about Meep the Geek, all you need is feathers and you’re good to go! (And a squeaky chicken if you desire details.)
- 1930s Clown – Perhaps developed from AHS as well, there’s an entire generation of clowns that thought their make up and hair dos were perfectly normal, and in reality they were FREAKY AF. If I went to the circus and saw a couple of clowns looking like this, I would run. And quickly.
- Pac Man – Maybe I’m just mad I never got to do this with my friends, but it’s always been an idea. Imagine using the crowd as the maze and playing a game of tag with your Ghosts? Now that sounds like fun!
- Baby Monkey – Easy Peezy Lemon Squeezy. First, watch this video,Then buy a pig costume, and attach a stuffed monkey on your back. BAM!
- Pippi Longstocking – Why have we forgotten about our original childhood badass? Unless it was only me that looked up to her…this is such a simple outfit to put together, and there’s so much you can do with it to add your own twist, but remember the pigtails are mandatory!
- Disney Descendants – You probably don’t know what exactly I’m talking about, and that’s because it’s a new Disney show about the children of the various evil villains. With this hip, steampunk look, you can defy the normal Disney Princesses idea.
- Flo from Progressive, Geico Gecko, The General, Jake from State Farm, All State Dude, etc. – If your festival family has no idea what to do for Halloween and are trying to collaborate, here’s an awesome crew to dress up as!
