Faun Halloween Costume Ideas
Fauns are legendary creatures that hung out with nymphs and had a merry old time in the woods of Ancient Greece. Here are some ideas on how to put this costume together:
• Horns, Ears & Hooves
Since fauns are half human, half goat, the first thing you will need are your horns and goat ears. You can buy a pair of horn prosthetics and get some latex goat ears. Alternatively, you can also buy a goat mask to wear over your face. Hooves can be hard to do, but you can buy shoe covers that are made to look like hooves.
If you're already wearing a mask, of course this is unnecessary, but if you opted for the separate horns and ears, it would be a good idea to buy a costume makeup kit. They sell dedicated animal makeup kits at costume stores. If you can't find one that will turn you into a goat at a brick and mortar store, there are plenty of options online.
Fauns are typically hairy, especially on their legs. If your a hairy guy your fine, but if not, you can buy fake fur to adorn yourself.
The fauns of legend didn't wear much clothes at all, but if you're not into running around naked, a loin cloth might be in order. Just make sure that it looks natural; fauns represent the forest and all of its organic pleasures.
Make your clothes out of simple leather or plants. You might also use fur to cover yourself and make it look like your own body hair.
