How to Make Slipknot Halloween Costumes
A Slipknot concert is a fun way to experience the band in person. (concert image by BlueMiniu from

Established in 1996, Slipknot is a band known for their hardcore metal music and shocking appearance. Due to their dark, gruesome nature, dressing up as a member of Slipknot is a popular option when Halloween rolls around. You can create your own Slipknot costume at home by combining a red or black jumpsuit with a Slipknot mask and hair styled to resemble one of the band members. Slipknot masks can be purchased online to make your costume as authentic as possible.

  1. 1

    Purchase a Slipknot mask. While this will give your costume the most authentic appearance, you can also use facepaint to recreate the look of your chosen Slipknot mask.

  2. 2

    Dress in a black or red jumpsuit. While Slipknot jumpsuits are also available for purchase, you can recreate the look with a long-sleeved red or black shirt and long red or black trousers. Add black shoes to the look.

  3. 3

    Purchase a wig to match the hair of the Slipknot member you have chosen to emulate. Alternately, style your hair in a similar fashion or use temporary hair colour to achieve the look.

  4. 4

    Adorn your jumpsuit or clothing with Slipknot patches and pins to finish the costume.

Tips and warnings

  • If you are using temporary spray-on hair colour, apply it in a well-ventilated area.
  • Exercise caution when applying patches with an iron.
