Costume Ideas: Reign Supreme This Halloween!


It’s that time of the year. Ghouls, goblins and the latest teen-vampire movie cast are roaming the streets. And why aren’t you among them? If it’s the age old excuse of not having anything to wear then you’re in luck! We’ve prepared a fool-proof guide to costuming, ranging from the simple to the more elaborate.

You’ve seen it done, like how it looks, but don’t dare try it! Why not? It doesn’t have to be difficult, honest! In fact it can be gosh-darned simple…

And be sure to scroll through the galleries for examples from Lomographers who know just how it’s done!

Simple: “Like stealing candy from a baby”

Fake blood
If weeping statues can convince, so can you!

Give your human parts a break and switch them with…who “nose”!

Face Paint
Draw on some whiskers and get your inner feline on!

False Teeth
It may be hard to talk like normal but you’ll sound more like Count Dracula that’s for sure.

And for those of you out to take home the grand prize, all you need is patience, or a friend who does, and an imagination!

Difficult: “You’re going to need a bigger boat”

Movie Makeup
If you look like you’ve just walked off the set of The Walking Dead, and you are as stiff as a zombie from the hours spent doing your makeup, then you deserve a gaping wow!

Timeless Characters
Maintaining character all night long will no doubt be challenging but in return for a scream or a laugh, we say it’s worth it.

Getting into it are we? Literally stepping into a full body suit, sure, you’ll take home the prize for most photogenic. But with no hope of escaping it till the dancing is done, brace yourself for a sweaty evening!

Imitating a Police Officer
Be aware of the laws in your area as donning an officer’s uniform or that of a firefighter for that matter could land you face-to-face with the real deal!
