Carnival Freak Show Costume Ideas

If your a big fan of carnival freak shows, or love American Horror Story: Freak Show, what better way to wow the crowd at this year's Halloween party than to show up a carnival freak show performer. Let's get started on our list of freaky costume ideas.

Ring Master

Ring Master Halloween Cosutme Ideas

To start, you'll need a combination of black and red pants and a dress jacket. If you go with black pants, choose a red jacket (and vice versa). A white dress shirt will finish off the main part of your costume. The only thing that's left is to accessorize with a boots, a bow tie, a top hat and most importantly: a ringmaster's whip and plenty of pizzazz!

Tattooed Man

Tattoo Man Costume

If you'd like to join the freak show as a tattooed man (or woman), your best bet will be one of the many "second skin" costumes now available in shops and online. These costumes are made from polyester and covert your body in a way that's similar to tights. Your regular skin will disappear beneath the costume, giving the illusion that you're covered in tattoos. Pair with the circus attire of you choice and get ready to perform.

Bearded Lady



As with the ringmaster costume idea, the bearded lady works for either gender. If you're a guy, you'll obviously need to grow your facial hair out a bit pre-party. Girls will need a bit more help with a fake beard.

Once you're bearded up, you'll need a fabulous dress that would be suitable for performing under the Big Top. If you can't find anything laying around at home, stores that sell dancewear have glamorous, sparkly attire that will look great. Top off your look with some lipstick and you're ready to go.

Strongman

No freak show is complete without the strongman. For this costume all you need is some weights and a retro style outfit. A real or fake old fashion mustache will complete your look. So, there you have it, what better way to wow the crowd at this year's Halloween party than to show up a carnival freak show performer.
