Teen Halloween Costume Ideas
Selecting a Halloween costume is a personal choice. Age and gender are some of the main factors that will determine what type of Halloween costume is best. Different teens like different things so I've created a short list of popular Halloween costumes.
Skeleton - Now here's a Teen classic. Both younger and older teens like the skeleton costume because it's scary and fun. A typical skeleton costume includes a completely black jumpsuit with painted skeleton bones on it. A wicked looking skeleton mask will complete the outfit. If you want to make a more realistic costume you can find fake bones and attach them to the costume.
Zombie - It seems that zombies have reached the highest level of popularity in the last few years. So, if you choose a zombie costume you will definitely be trendy. Making a zombie costume is quite easy and you can choose many different types of zombie costumes – zombie doctor, zombie road worker, zombie hunter, zombie teacher – the list is endless. All you need is regular clothes that you won't wear again because you need to make them look dirty and ragged.
Ghost - Nowadays, just wearing a plain white sheet over your body doesn't quite cut it in the ghostly department. Instead, you're going to have to be a bit more creative.
A good question to ask yourself is this: What sort of person was your ghost before they died? This will help bring some variety to this often over-done costume. Were they a painter, a chef, a soldier? Even better, you can combine two kinds of creepy costumes. For example, you can be the ghost of a scary clown, or the restless spirit of a machete-wielding maniac. There are lots of possibilities.
The key to turning these characters into ghosts will depend largely on your clothes and your make-up. Go with a ghostly pale appearance. If you find that your outfit is too bright and lively, you might consider getting a pre-made costume of the particular ghost that you're trying to embody.
Vampire (Sexy Vampire) - Nothing scares some people more than the prospect of having to watch Twilight. Trigger these deep-rooted fears of teen vampire novel-based chick flicks by dressing up like Edward Cullen. All you have to do is make your face look slightly too pale and have the same brooding look on your face all the time.
Wearwolf - The most important here is the headgear. Create werewolf's mask or headgear using fur-like material. Give him fierce teeth and sharp eyes. Werewolf's gloves are designed with claws at the tips. Werewolf wears a checked shirt that is torn at the ends and torn pants as well.
Mummy - Strips of white cloth will be ideal to complete this costume. Dress up in white then wrap the head in a white scarf. Cover the rest of the body in bandage-like white strips of cloth. The body does not have to be carefully or neatly wrapped in the strips of cloth but can be done in a careless manner. Ladies can wear a white dress then cover their bodies, including legs and arms, with strips of white linen or cotton clothes.
In addition, you can also spray some fake blood on them. What is important about the zombie costume is your skin which must look grayish. You should also pay attention to the mouth and use some fake blood around it.
Witch - It is believed that witches come in different forms, but the most famous one is the dark witch. This is why it is the best idea to come up with a dark witch costume. Use a dress that comes in dark colors (black is best). The dress shouldn't be tight and fancy.
The other important element is the hat which should be pointy. It is a good idea to add some spider-web around it. If you don't have long black hair use a wig. Finally, don't forget the broom which is one of the most important accessories when we talk about witches.
Grim Reaper - The term Grim Reaper for this depiction of death was first used in the middle of the 19th century. Halloween is a holiday in which people usually wear scary costumes and we can agree that there are only a small number of things that are scarier than death itself. This means that wearing a well-designed Grim Reaper costume for Halloween is a awesome idea.
