Classic Halloween Costumes

When you want to ditch contemporary versions like ‘Harley Quinn’ and modern-day superheroes, you should go for more traditional Halloween costumes like pumpkins, witches, and jokers. So if you want to reminisce about the past, here are our top picks for the best classic Halloween outfits:

  • Pumpkin Costume

Pumpkins have been the classic depiction of Halloween ever since the festival got famous around the globe. And it’s damn easy to create as well.

Simply take an orange T-shirt and use a black pencil to draw triangles and straight lines along its length. The triangles are the eyes, while the straight lines represent the ribs of the pumpkin. You can also buy the costume online without having to shell out a large amount for it.

You can also take it a notch higher with some black lipstick, face painting, and a fake pointed nose.

Clowns have been the depiction of both amusement and horror from the earliest portrayals.

To dress like one, all you need is an oversized colorful T-shirt suspended to oversized pants and white face paint and red for your nose. You can also add props here, like a colorful tie and hat. Place eyelashes and some red color on your brows, and you will look like an evil McDonald’s ready to serve doom.

To do the mummy look, cut some silts at the side of the white fabric and tear slits from the cuts of the fabric throughout its length. Next, cut some bandages and stick them along your T-shirt along with the strips. Your DIY mummy look is ready-to-go.
