Disturbing Costume Ideas

If you want to go for realism and gore, Halloween is the best time of the year to try out your most disturbing costumes. It's time to not only scare the heck out of your friends, but to emotionally scar them for life.

Duct Tape / Barbed Wire Costume



Duck tape body rap looks like a mummy or a crazy person. This costume can be made at home using lots of silver color duct tape. Wrapping duck tape haphazardly around your mouth, eyes and body defiantly looks strange and disturbing. (If using duct around your face be sure to use caution.)

A barbed wire body is another costume with a disturbing appearance. For this costume wear a tattered white shirt with realistically looking blood stains. Rap fake barbed wire rope around your body and your good to go. To make things more disturbing, wear a realistic zombie mask with a fierce looking barbed wire around the head.

Pig Mask



Have you seen American Horror Story: Roanoke? It's a story of torture, cannibalism, and human misery. It's an extremely disturbing show and it's certainly not for everyone. This is what makes it perfect for an extremely dark and disturbing Halloween costume.

You don't have to look too far these days to find masks that represent all of the freaks from this popular series. In lieu of an actual pig's head, find a grotesque pig mask, especially one that has some tusks hanging out.

Next, throw on a shirt and a scarf. Smear yourself with fake blood. You're a country bumpkin cannibal on the lookout for sweet human flesh, so you need to look the part. Look hungry.

Psycho Ax Killer



There's something about primal human fear that makes the idea of a killer a good basis for a disturbing costume. Many folks have a strange fascination with this fear, which is why people are so interested in seeing manifestations of pure evil during Halloween.

For example, you can be part of this interesting psychological phenomenon by dressing up as a psycho ax killer. If you really have a flair for the morbid, research some actual real-life ax murderers and base your costume around them. At any rate, you can find some pretty convincing-looking fake axes these days. Make sure to buy lots of fake blood, too.
