In our country, Halloween is not quite a holiday, but more of a reason to have fun. You can even say terribly fun, in every sense of the word – creepy costumes for Halloween 2021 are one of the main attributes of this day.
The year among the Celts, who inhabited a significant part of Europe, was divided into two parts: light, good (from May to October) and dark, evil (from November to April). They were separated by the holiday of Samhain, which falls on October 31. It was believed that with the onset of night, an invisible door to the world of spirits opened. Through her to visit the descendants came the deceased ancestors, but with them could slip and evil spirits. To scare her, the Celts burned fires, offered sacrifices to the gods and put on animal skins.
Halloween costumes for girls
The flight for fantasy in terms of choosing a Halloween costume is really big. In our country, to create images, dark shades or combinations of bright colors are most often chosen. You can choose a costume yourself or seek help from a stylist. Female images on Halloween are not only costumes of a witch or nun. We bring variety and look for new options to create an unforgettable atmosphere at the holiday.
1. Witch costume
The dress can be chosen in any style and not necessarily black, for example, with a colored underdub. Or on any colored (but preferably monochromatic, and then the witch’s costume is easily confused with the costume of a gypsy) outfit is enough to wear a black vest, cape or wide belt. If the dress is short, pick up unusual gaiters, stockings or tights – bright striped, in a large mesh or with holes, with any patterns.
A witch is usually depicted riding a broomstick, but carrying her with you all evening is not very convenient. Replace it with a magic wand, poke or skull. And be sure to buy a pointed hat. Also well complement the image of long false nails and a large number of large jewelry.
2. Nun costume
Girls can use any black dress from their wardrobe, complementing it with a white collar stand and / or white manishka and a special headdress. It is easier to buy or sew than to try to build from improvised means.
Additional accessories that will be needed are a large Catholic cross, rosary or “prayer book”: any small monochromatic book or notebook will fulfill its role. Makeup should be pale, with a black accent on the eyes. Lips should be smeared with white foundation and draw with a dark brown sharpened pencil longitudinal cracks on the lips.
3. Cat costume
The classic version of the costume of a cat on Halloween is completely black. In addition to it comes makeup in dark shades and accessories in color. In stores, you can find solid cat suits, consisting most often of tight leggings and a tight top: T-shirts or longsleayva. You can diversify such an image with tulle or tulle: they make an excellent tail, bracelets on the wrists and even ears.
An interesting option is the costume of a cat woman. A tight suit is accompanied by a black mask, sometimes massive shoes or high boots. Complements the image of makeup: the ideal option would be makeup with an emphasis on the eyes. But do not forget about the expressive cat’s nose and small mustache.
If the black cat costume is too gloomy, you can try to dilute the image with orange. Or even make a tricolor fawn suit.
4. Doll costume
To create an image, you will need a bright wig and expressive makeup. No less important in this case is the costume. You can choose an option with a porcelain doll, malvina, Barbie doll, Voodoo doll.
To become a porcelain doll on Halloween, you need to find a lush dress, preferably with ruffles. Particular attention will have to be paid to makeup: bleached skin and summed up eyes will give the image a special charm. You can supplement the dress with accessories: add a bow for hairstyle and a handbag in color.
To the usual hair of the blue color of Malvina, you can add makeup in similar shades. Dress is better to choose a neutral color. It will be interesting to look “broken” makeup: it is done with the help of aqua makeup.
For the image of Barbie, you will need a white wig and bright pink lipstick in the color of the dress. The face can be slightly whitened and put on colored lenses: bright blue will look best.
5. Pumpkin costume
An interesting solution is to create a costume in two colors: orange and black. They can be alternated with each other: for example, give preference to a strip. Or make the top bright orange and the bottom black. An orange lush dress with a skirt made of tulle will look good: after all, you can create a pumpkin volume with the help of this material.
If you choose the option with a face mask in the form of a pumpkin, then in this case the main suit should look more calm. For example, completely black with orange accessories: jewelry, handbag.
6. Bride’s costume
The choice of dress color is not always obvious: you can buy not just white, but peach or light blue shade. It can be issued independently. A popular technique: leave blood stains on the tissue. This can be done with the help of special acrylic paints. For high-quality spraying, aerosol is usually used.
Where is the bride without a veil? It is most often sloppy, has an uneven cut and looks quite voluminous. Of the accessories, you should pay attention to the bouquet: you can make it from dried flowers, and tie it with a black ribbon.
7. Nurse costume
On a white background, red blood spots look very frightening: they can also be made with special paint. The basis will be the costume of a medical worker, it is better to choose white.
Accessories in this image do not just complement the costume, but create a basis for it. It can be bloody with the help of dyes syringes or scalpels, phonendoscope or bandages. Makeup can be done in red tones: bright lipstick and emphasis on the eyes. And red lenses will give the image even greater danger.

Halloween costumes for men
A memorable image can be yourself or buy a ready-made suit in the store. The main thing is not to forget to fantasize and implement the most interesting ideas.
1. Dead Man Costume
To begin with, decide how long ago your dead man died. Based on this, any outfit should either be filled with “blood” (special fake or ordinary red paint), or aged as much as possible (cut, stained with gray paint to simulate dust, pour bleach, thicker fabrics can be rubbed with sandpaper or an ordinary kitchen grater).
2. Skeleton costume
There’s one spectacular way to make a skeleton costume for Halloween. To do this, you will have to sacrifice a T-shirt. Holes are cut on it, repeating the contours of the ribs and spine. Templates for the front and back side are also free to download. If the T-shirt is white, under it you need to wear a black T-shirt or T-shirt, if black – then white.
3. Vampire Costume
If you want the dead to look presimpathetic, give preference to the image of a vampire. Its advantage is that you can do without a suit at all, because the business card of this character is fangs. Make light makeup and wear white or red contact lenses without diopters – and no one dares to approach you so as not to be bitten. By the way, the peculiarity of carnival lenses is that most often they are sold by the piece, you can “repaint” each eye in its own color.
4. Monk costume
It is better to buy a cassock of a medieval monk or sew it to order – an ordinary black hoodie with trousers will look unconvincing. In addition to it, you need a large cross, a rosary and a Bible.
Makeup for the tone of the face choose white, not flesh. Eyes can be summed up black, and on the lips to add cracks with eyeliner.
5. Ghost costume
In stores there is a large selection of this kind of costumes: a white cape with painted black eyes. This option is quite suitable and you can make a suit yourself. But if there is a desire to diversify it, it is worth thinking about additional details.

6. Zombie Costume
Zombie is one of the most popular characters on Halloween. Green skin, torn clothes and bright lenses: all this will help to reincarnate into a corpse that has risen from the ground.
As a basis, you can take ordinary clothes: a T-shirt and jeans. But you will need to try to work on their design. With the help of soil diluted in water, you can apply prints to the fabric, and add paints with the help of special dyes. If the simple image is too banal, choose the costumes of a cook, a doctor, a pilot. Any of them could become a zombie, that’s the beauty. It is possible to stain the skin not completely, but in separate areas. Makeup is better to apply in advance and check it in business: how firmly and for a long time it can hold.
7. Monster Costume
A monster can be a dinosaur, Frankenstein, and the Night Demon: the choice is really big. In stores there are ready-made options with masks, and individual details of costumes. For example, voluminous capes or arm pads made of bandages.
To make a monster costume yourself, you need to decide which option is most suitable. It will be easier to buy a mask, and the costume itself is made of special materials. In the course will go tulle, dense fabric, models to create false paws (if you choose the option of a dinosaur).
Shoes are better to choose massive, makeup is not necessary if there is a mask. You can abandon the mask and make aqua makeup using feathering. The image of the monster will look frightening.
8. Costume devil
Black jumpsuit and red horns will make you a cute devil. But if you want to add piquancy to the image, you can make another pointed tail, add wings and a trident.
Black and red tones are used for makeup. The base can be chosen red, and supplement it with black. The emphasis is on the eyes: light blue lenses will look perfect. It will be interesting to look thematic drawings, both on the body and on the face. These can be flames or pentagrams.
With a suit, gloves up to the elbows will look good. They can be manually painted with fabric paints.

10. Joker’s costume
You will have to arm yourself with a green red for hair in the form of a spray or crayons and be patient. For the face you will need white paint, the lips need to be painted red, and the eyes should be summed up with a black liner. In the image of the Joker, everything is verified and even slightly elegant: a classic suit with a butterfly or a wide trench coat. And you can not forget about the golden massive chains.
Paired Halloween Costumes
Going to Halloween together is much more fun than going to one. And paired costumes will make a indelible impression on guests: get ready to receive compliments.
A great option for Halloween costumes of the bride and groom, who have just risen from the dead. Or two doctors in gowns with “bloodstains.” If you prefer superhero themes, dress up as Batman and his girlfriend, or the Joker and Harley Queen.
