It would not be Halloween without scary costumes. For many years children and adults alike have enjoyed dressing up and frightening people. With a little imagination, you can make scary and original costumes that are sure to be the hit of the party.

Scary Surgeon Costume

To make a scary surgeon costume, purchase a pair of green scrubs from a local thrift store and a green mask and latex gloves from a local chemist. Smear red fabric paint on the scrubs and mask. Splatter face paint on your face. Add additional accessories such as a toy stethoscope, a doctor bag, old CD hot-glued to elastic for a head mirror and toy knife.

Homemade Skeleton Costume

A skeleton costume is a scary costume that both children and adults can make themselves. All it requires is a skeleton mask, black beanie cap, black gloves, black and white tennis shoes, black socks, black pyjamas or a black sweat suit and white glow in the dark paint. Use the white glow in the dark paint to paint the skeleton bones on to the black pyjamas or sweat suit.

Voodoo Doll Costume

For those know how to sew, the voodoo doll costume is a cool, scary costume. Buy enough burlap material to make a one-piece jumpsuit and add a top that covers your head. Add a red felt heart on the chest, mittens, shoe coverings and dark eye shadow around your eyes. Spray paint bamboo skewers silver and sew them into the costume for the pins.

Homemade Baby Vampire

This vampire makes a scary costume for a baby, toddler or young child. Use a pair of black trousers and a white dress shirt. Make or buy a cape and purchase a pendant from a Halloween store. Add a vampire Billy Bob binky for a baby or vampire teeth for a child. Make-up the faces of toddlers and children.
