5 Creative Halloween Costume Ideas

Halloween is only one week ahead. I’m so excited for this holiday, because we don’t celebrate this holiday in China. Though we do have Halloween theme parties at bars and clubs, it’s still not that a big deal. I’ve always been wondering how it real looks like in America. I’ve already seen some interesting decorations outside some apartments, which made me feel even more curious about this holiday. So I’m planning  to join a party, and visit a haunted house next week. And I also decided to get a costume for myself! But I’m still looking for cool costume ideas and trying to figure out which one should I go with.

Here I’ve found some real creative and inspiring costume ideas.

Jack and Sally

These costumes are both handmade; and the mask is made of papier-mache and filler.

Half Sweeney Todd, half Mrs. Lovett

This one is so brilliant, that I don’t think everyone can accomplish a costume like this. This one is from a burlesque performer.

Pride & Prejudice & Zombies

This amazing jaw which was made of latex was also made by the performer. The teeth actually moved with her mouth.

René Magritte’s The Son of Man

This effortless costume is so resembled to the original painting.

Zombie Audrey Hepburn

This makeup artist did a lot of zombie looks. This one is the most “elegant” one.

I have to say these costumes are all super professional. As I’m not that talented at makeup and handicraft, I’ll probably just get a costume from the store. 😉

    Love the theme of Tim Burton movies and zombies, in my opinion I think that’s going to be a pretty popular and common theme next weekend.

      I love the theme of Tim Burton movies, too! There’re so many different crazy and dramatic characters from his movies. People can always get Halloween inspirations from his movie.
