Have you ever not been prepared at all for Halloween. For example, it’s the first of October and you are like yay its Halloween at the end of the month. I will think about that later though as it is not too important right now. Then next thing you know it’s October 31st and you are there like where did the time go? No? Well, I guess that will be a fun year for you then. Anyway, let’s presume that this year is that year. The year that we completely forget about a particularly scary holiday. You have like a week left and you need a costume. Unfortunately, it’s too late to order one online and there are none in the shops near you. I have a few tips and tricks for you. So let’s get cracking
Snapchat is always changing their filters and you are guaranteed to find at least one you will love. So how about for Halloween you just recreate it. You could choose any of them. For example, you could go around with a very upset and sad expression and say that you are that particular filter. You could go all out on your makeup and then say you are that one. Find some random dog ears and paint your nose then spend the entire evening with your tongue out and you will be the dog one. The possibilities are endless. So if you need a quick fix for a costume then use Snapchat as your source for inspiration.
If you either haven’t got Snapchat or you would rather not pretend to be one of the filters, then maybe you should dress up as a doll. A doll’s outfit is pretty simple. Take a puffy dress (look in charity shops if you don’t own one) and wear that with little ballet shoes. The makeup can also be pretty simple. Firstly, take white face paint and mix it with a tiny bit of your foundation. You want your skin to be pale but not white. Put that all over your face then using a translucent powder set your foundation. Take a cream blush and a small brush and draw a perfect circle on the apples of your cheeks and fill that in. You can then set that with some powder blush or you can leave it without. Fill in your eyebrows and then apply the biggest and longest fake lashes you can find. The longer the better. Finally, colour your lips in with the foundation mixture and then make a small circle of red lipstick on them in the centre. There you have it. An easy doll makeup look to scare people this Halloween season. For your hair, you can literally do whatever and it will look normal and intentional. The more perfect and immaculate your hair the creepier you will end up looking and the more people you will be able to scare.
I think that will be it for this year’s last minute costumes posts. That doesn’t mean it will be the end of all Halloween posts, though. Nope, I am not finished yet so stay tuned people.
As of Saturday 22nd of October it is:
- 8 days until Halloween
- 63 days until Christmas
- 124 days until my birthday
