20 Creepy Halloween Costume Ideas
In our country, Halloween is not quite a holiday, but more of an occasion to have fun. You could even say scary fun, in every sense of the word – creepy Halloween costumes are one of the main attributes of this day. Here are 20 creepy Halloween costume ideas from which you need to try at least one.
1. Witch costume
You can choose a dress of any style and not necessarily black, for example, with a colored petticoat. Or on any colored (but monophonic is better, otherwise the witch’s costume can be easily confused with the gypsy costume) outfit, it is enough to put on a black vest, cape or wide belt. If the dress is short, pick up unusual leggings, stockings or tights – bright striped, in a large mesh or with holes, with any patterns.
The witch is usually depicted riding a broomstick, but it is not very convenient to carry it around with you all evening. Replace it with a magic wand, pumpkin or skull. And be sure to buy a pointed hat. Also well complement the image of long false nails and a large number of large jewelry.
2. Nun costume
Girls can use any black dress from their wardrobe, complementing it with a white stand-up collar and / or a white shirt-front and a special headdress. It is easier to buy or sew than to try to build from improvised means.
Additional accessories that you will need are a large Catholic cross, a rosary or a “prayer book”: any small plain book or notebook will play its role. Make-up should be pale, with black accents on the eyes. Lips should be covered with white foundation and draw longitudinal cracks on the lips with a dark brown sharpened pencil.
3. Cat costume
The classic Halloween cat costume is all black. In addition to it, there is makeup in dark shades and accessories in color. In stores, you can find one-piece cat costumes, most often consisting of tight leggings and a tight-fitting top: T-shirts or long sleeves. You can diversify such an image with tulle or tulle: they make excellent tails, bracelets on the wrists and even ears.
An interesting option is the catwoman costume. A black mask is added to the tight-fitting suit, sometimes massive shoes or high boots. Complements the image of makeup: the ideal option would be makeup with an emphasis on the eyes. But do not forget about the expressive cat’s nose and small mustache.
If the black cat costume is too gloomy, you can try to dilute the image with orange. Or even make a three-color fawn suit.
4. Doll costume
To create an image, you will need a bright wig and expressive makeup. Equally important in this case is the costume. You can choose the option with porcelain doll, malvina, barbie doll, voodoo doll.
To become a porcelain doll on Halloween, you need to find a puffy dress, preferably with frills. Particular attention will have to be paid to makeup: bleached skin and summed up eyes will give the image a special charm. You can complement the dress with accessories: add a bow for hair and a handbag in his color.
You can add makeup in similar shades to Malvina’s usual blue hair. The dress is better to choose a neutral color. It will be interesting to look “broken” makeup: it is done with the help of face painting.
For the image of Barbie, you will need a white wig and bright pink lipstick in the color of the dress. The face can be slightly whitened and colored lenses are worn: bright blue will look best.
5. Pumpkin costume
An interesting solution is to create a suit in two colors: orange and black. They can be alternated with each other: for example, give preference to a strip. Or make the top bright orange and the bottom black. An orange fluffy dress with a skirt made of tulle will look good: after all, it is possible to create the volume of a pumpkin with the help of this material.
If you choose the gourd-shaped face mask, then the main costume should look more relaxed. For example, completely black with orange accessories: jewelry, handbag.
6. Bride’s suit

7. Nurse costume
On a white background, red bloody spots look very intimidating: they can also be made using special paint. The suit of a medical worker will be the basis, it is still better to choose white.
Accessories in this look do not just complement the costume, but create the basis for it. These can be syringes or scalpels, bloody with dyes, a phonendoscope or bandages. Makeup can be done in red colors: bright lipstick and emphasis on the eyes. And the red lenses will give the image even more danger.
8. Mermaid costume
Turquoise and blue colors will help create a unique image of a mermaid. Shells and sequins are perfect for decorating the costume, which can be fixed with glitter. Here you should not be afraid that both the suit and makeup will be in the same shade: this effect must be achieved. To create a beautiful and lasting makeup, you need to use face painting. With it, skin color can be made turquoise or purple. And don’t forget about the wig: the combination of white and blue colors will look advantageous.
