Boo! Scary creatures and monsters designed to cast out evil spirits have people wearing spooky masks and costumes on Halloween. The costumes and accessories may be bought, rented, or hand crafted.
Halloween night may be celebrated at public functions, private parties, block parties, and in some neighborhoods children accompanied by adults will walk and knock on neighborhood doors announcing “Trick or Treat.”
Do you wish to make your own costume? Many people find that creating and designing their own costume adds to the fun of this creepy celebration. Arts and crafts skills and talents may include sewing, ironing, safety pins, iron-on bias tape, staples or fabric glue.
The supplies you will need will depend on your skills and purpose of the costume. Costume materials may include fabric, paper, scissors, sewing machine, glue, ruler, pen or pencil, other notions, and specialty tools.
How to Make a Sexy Costume
Open your closet and dresser draws and review which garments may be altered. A dress can be altered by cutting away unwanted fabric or stitch certain parts of the garment to help to emphasize or reveal your sexy or feminine curves.
How to redesign a dress for a sexy appeal:
- Cut away the neckline to reveal cleavage. The proper push-up bra will give the added lift.
- Cut the neckline in a circular fashion to create an off-shoulder come-hither look.
- Create a one shoulder and arm dress.
- Make a diamond cut in the midriff area and wear an attractive naval jewel.
- Make a one piece dress into a top and hip skirt and wear a chain to hang around a nude waistline or hip line.
- Cut a slit in the skirt to introduce a leg view. The cut can be either in the side or front. If the cut is made too deep, wear an attractive pair of glamour shorts.
- If you feel uncomfortable being “too bare” purchase a nude fabric body suit or wear dancers tights.
- Wear the appropriate hair style or wig. jewelry, gloves, and 3″ high heels will compliment the sexy glamour look.
- Create a beautiful face with your stash of personal cosmetics. This glamour costume is for Halloween so exaggerate your makeup. Use long eyelashes, much rouge, very bright lipstick, or if you wish, mimic the makeup of a famous glamorous celebrity and attend the party as her lookalike.
Create a Ghostly or Flowing Costume
Wear a white leotard with dancer tights. Connect as many sheer white or gray or dull yellow curtains which will fit your body and create a long flowing gown. To create floating as you walk, wear your gown 2″or 3″ beyond floor level.
Fold the fabric in half. Fold in half one more time. Place the tape measure on the corner of the folded corner. Mark your measurements at the edge of the gown. Cut away the bottom circle and cut about a 3″ circle at the tip for the neckline.
Open up the fabric, place your head into the smaller cut which will form your neckline and let the seamless fabric cascade and flow about your body.
If uncertain about these directions make a sample on a small sheet of paper to avoid making a large mistake. Folding the fabric incorrectly will result in multiple cuts which will require stitching. An instant substitute is a tattered wedding gown. Wear or create a mask of your choice.
A Headless Costume
Grab an old suit and shirt or blouse from the closet or take a trip to the attic and look into an old trunk.
The male can wear a necktie or bow tie. The female can wear a scarf or a necktie.
You may be able to pull both the suit and the shirt above your head and keep it in place during the time this costume is being worn.
But if not, construct a supporting structure from a cardboard box which will sit on the shoulder of the wearer. This form needs to be able to support the weight of the shirt and suit jacket.
The cardboard box cutout should be able to sit on the shoulder with ease. If the box does not balance, add straps which can be tied around the back and chest of the wearer.
The neck portion of this costume is worn above the head of the person. Make sure no hair is showing.
The necktie or scarf should be fastened narrowly to create the neck portion of the headless costume.
The individual wearing the costume should be able to see through the shirt or blouse. If not, cut holes in the shirt and create bloody-like stains with ketchup, red colored water paint, food coloring, or ink from a red marker pen. The holes will appear to be gunshot wounds.
Do not forget to wear the pants and shoes. Details are critical.
Wear A Mask or Makeup
Select a mask which represents a character of your interest. The mask can cover the eye part of your face, 2/3 of your face, or a full mask. Masks which can be purchased at party department stores will have supplies of simple eye masks, celebrity, political, monster, and more.
Masks are made of fabric, plastic, foam, paper, and rubber. If you do not wish to purchase decorate your own mask.
You can make your own mask with materials you have on hand, such as, cardboard, poster board. Or use an everyday facial cover such as a sports guard helmet, a gas mask is very popular, or an underwater diving mask.
Men may consider removing or adding a mustache, beard, eyeglasses, hat or head scarf, removable teeth, a cardboard box; let your imagination take over. Wear something which is out of the ordinary for your type of personality.
Are you creative and love makeup?
An inexpensive Halloween makeup kit is great to have on hand, but if you do not, use eyebrow pencils, eye shadow tints or powders, and lipstick.
Protect your skin by applying moisture cream to face. Use the eyebrow pencil to draw intended markings and fill large areas with eye shadow tints, rouge, or lipstick.
Halloween makeup kits will include most of the paints needed for facial decorating. Or you may prefer to purchase the white and black facial creams, artificial blood, and use personal cosmetic pencils and liners for refining markings.
