If you are looking for the perfect Halloween costume for this year’s parties, but need some inspiration on how to incorporate the very essential aspect of a mask to keep things safe, then these Halloween costume ideas are perfect for you!
Pick A Spooky Or Creepy Theme For Your Outfit
For an easy addition to any ensemble, choose a theme such as bats, spiders, pumpkin, skeletons, or anything else spooky. Then buy a related mask and where any Halloween clothes or colors you have. Blacks, purples, and oranges work best. This is simple if you aren’t looking to buy a whole Halloween costume or already have an outfit in mind that just needs a little extra style! If you are looking for other small and fun additions, try a pair of colored contact lenses. Some pairs even come in designs, making your eyes look like stars or other fun shapes. Explore your options to find easy components for a casual outfit.
Escape As A Runaway Mental Patient To Show Off Your Crazy Side
If you happen to already own any bondage equipment, such as handcuffs or ropes, this look will be even easier to achieve. Pick out long-sleeved white clothes to mimic a straight jacket or try a white, blue, or other pale neutral-colored robes for a hospital patient look. Add any straps and restraints you can to make the occupancy seem forced and tatter the clothing for an extra effect. As far as your mask goes, a simple one time use disposable mask will work fine, but masks that give the appearance of a muzzle are also easy to purchase online.
Add Another Dimension To The Standard Skeleton
The traditional skeleton outfit has been done time and time again. For an easy to incorporate look, pick any base skeleton outfit and then add a mask showing the bones in your jaw to add to the illusion. For a comfortable, warm, and reusable purchase, buy a skeleton onesie from Target or Walmart. You will have long sleeves, pockets, and a hood. With the addition of your mask, only your eyes and hands will be uncovered, so feel free to add some eye makeup to really stand out and add to the effect.
The Screaming Face Mask Is An Old Classic
Add to any outfit or mimic the Scream movie franchise – the choice is up to you. The benefit of a simple mask such as this is that it gives you a lot more freedom and creativity with your clothing as that will be the main focus piece instead of the mask.
