When people hear the word Halloween, they think of scary characters. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case anymore nowadays.
Today, a lot of people get so caught up in trying to find a sexy, good-looking, funny, or clever costume that they forget the joys of a frightening, blood-curdling, and spooky Halloween costume.
However, when you let yourself embrace the disturbing, the wicked, and the gross, it is when the real fun starts.
Almost all spooky Halloween costumes take inspiration from the scariest horror movies. This includes films that feature zombies, deadly clowns, ghosts, and more that linger in our minds.
If you don’t have any idea what to wear for this coming trick or treat, you should not worry. We are here to help.
Keep in mind that there is a spooky Halloween look for everyone. It does not matter if you’re a kid, a teen, or an adult.
The Shadow Demon Costume
All you need to wear is an all-black costume that covers your body from head to toe. It should not have any other identifying details as well.
With this costume, you can easily blend into the darkness. This makes it more terrifying. You can also add a pair of demonic glowing eyes, gloves with pointy fingers, and some stealthy moves. You can attach these things with the help of a security tape.
This is perhaps one of your best recipes for pure horror as you creep up on your unsuspecting friends and scare the life out of them.
Dreadful Vampire Costume
If you wear a spooky vampire costume, you will be the talk of the town. You can also pair it with a scary vampire makeup look and you are good to go.
Don’t forget to wear fake fangs to make your costume more appealing.
Spooky Ghost Costume
You can have other people running in the other direction if you meet them on the streets by wearing a freaky, faceless reaper in a horrifying white rope and pointy black gloves.
You can also attach chains to your feet to add spooky noises every time you walk. If you think steel chains are too heavy for you, you can use plastic chain links.
For a truly spooky look, try to carry a light-up skull lantern as well.
Scary Mummy Costume
With a ghoulish mummy costume, you can truly get wrapped up in the Halloween spirit. However, we are not talking about wrapping yourself with toilet paper. This is for kids.
If you want to go all-out, you should try to wrap yourself with tattered and well-worn bandages. These bandages are more durable than toilet paper. You can also attach it to your jumpsuit.
This can make an excellent DIY Halloween costume for adults.
Frank the Bunny Costume
Have you seen the movie titled Donnie Darko? If so, you’re probably familiar with Frank the Bunny. He’s that scary bunny that appears in Donnie’s dreams.
You can easily turn some heads if you dress up as this scary rabbit. You should also try to tell a couple of scary Halloween stories that are entertaining and spooky if you really want to scare people.
Scary Clown Costume
This is perhaps one of the most popular costumes during Halloween. The key element to achieving a truly frightening clown look is the killer-clown mask.
However, you can make it more disturbing by adding slash marks in your outfit and carrying a deadly weapon. You’ve got a lot of options to choose from. This includes flailing spiked balls, bloody cleavers, and more.
Don’t forget to buy hand sanitizers and bring them with you when you go trick-or-treating.
The Scream costume is perhaps the simplest, yet most spooky costume you can use. When you wear one, you are also paying tribute to one of the most classic slasher movies.
Also, don’t forget to get a few screams when you wear this costume. The Scream costume is also an excellent last-minute Halloween costume idea since all you need is a black robe and the iconic mask.
Grim Reaper Costume
The Grim Reaper costume will do the trick if you are looking for a spooky Halloween costume idea for yourself or your kids.
If you want to add more details to your look, you can attach a pair of creepy glowing eyes. If you’ve got the time, it’s an excellent DIY costume for your entire family.
Chucky and His Bride Costumes
Everyone knows Chucky. He is that iconic killer doll that everyone loves and hates. He is the doll of everyone’s nightmares.
To achieve his look, all you need are fake stitches, a red wig, overalls, and a striped shirt. Also, if you’ve got a partner, you can ask her to go with you as the Bride of Chucky.
The Joker Costume
The Joker is always a good spooky costume. It does not matter which version of the Joker you will go with.
The Mom from Coraline Costume
Coraline might be a kids movie. However, we all know that it’s a spooky one. This is particularly true when we talk about the mom.
The key to achieving her look is the button eyes. Remember, don’t stitch the buttons to your eyes. Else, you won’t return to the real world. All you need to do is to glue them to a pair of glasses.
The Nun Costume
The Nun is perhaps one of the scariest movies out there. Thus, you should try dressing up as this demonic sister to increase your scare factor this Halloween.
To achieve her look, all you need is a Nun costume, black-and-white makeup, and yellow eyes.
If you know DIY tips, you can create the Nun costume on your own.
