Since early October, supermarkets have been selling wide-brimmed "witch" hats and ready-made costumes for Halloween (which is celebrated on the night of October 31 to November 1). For example, you can dress up with a horned devil for about 3000 - 5000 rubles. The same will cost a costume of a vampire, a fallen angel, a dead man, a black raven, a monk and other traditional Halloween characters. Sorry for the money - for one night? The costume can be made on your own, quickly and at no cost.
Changing clothes quickly
In haste, you can create a mummy costume: it will take several wide bandages and fifteen minutes of time. One of the most common options.
Another traditional homemade halloween costume - "ghost" from an old sheet with large slits for the eyes and a painted smile. You can complement the outfit with a hat, tie a scarf, wear sunglasses or beads: the ghost will be the original.
It's easy to make a carnival costume if you have a white robe. A little red paint, a saw or some other threatening tool in your hand - and you turn into a maniac doctor.
Any variation on any workwear theme is good. For example, a HellRaiser plumber or a devilish electrician. Details play a huge role in such transformations: "dead" makeup, false fangs.
It is a little more difficult to organize the costume of Caesar, Caligula or the Roman empress. A toga can be made from the same sheet: it needs to be wrapped around the body, as in the picture in the history textbook. Don't forget summer sandals and a laurel wreath. You will have to tinker with the latter, attaching the lavrushka with tape to the hair hoop or sewing it to the braid.
Another cheap and fast halloween costume - the vestment of the spider. This will require tight-fitting black clothing and a few rolls of clothesline. Spread the "web" artistically on the floor and secure it with knots or sewing threads. It will be just great if you plant rubber flies, beetles and other insects in some places (dummies of insects can be found in toy stores and markets). Then the finished "web" must be attached to the suit in such a way that when you wave your hands, it stretches and everyone can admire its magnificence.
Halloween is Marilyn Manson's professional holiday. Think about rock stars, sex idols and popular characters.
“I was Marilyn Monroe and had great success last Halloween - I danced all night in a white dress among devils,” says Olga, a 21-year-old Muscovite, a lover of masquerades. - This year I still think who to be? Maybe Marilyn Manson? It will not be difficult: women's clothes and makeup will be used.
Experience shows that on Halloween, the costumes of Elvis Presley, Andy Warhol, Amy Winehouse or the pirate Jack Sparrow are especially successful. Creating these outfits is not so difficult if you revise not only your wardrobe, but also all family members. Make-up, hairstyle and accessories will play the main role in the transformation.
Once upon a time, Russia had its own Halloween - Erofeev Day, October 17. At this time, our ancestors accompanied Leshy into hibernation. Before going to bed, Goblin drives animals into holes, knocks down old trees and does other household chores. And all the forest and water spirits help him in this: kikimors, mermaids and even Baba Yaga.
- Making the outfit of Baba Yaga or kikimora is not difficult at all! - says Anastasia from Reutov, 24 years old. - I rummaged in the dacha things, grandmother's supplies - from the category that cannot be worn, but it's a pity to throw it away. Very quickly I found a skirt, a jacket and even something like a cap. She shredded all this with scissors and flew to the club with a broom in her hands! True, I hooked my nose with a hook already in place, I was afraid that I would lose it on the way.
Nastya says that there were witches in the club, but Baba Yaga is alone. Therefore, it recommends repeating her experience.
Do you like masquerades?
|I don't know, I've never been to them.|
There are tons of tragic literary heroes whose images are very close to Halloween themes. This is Desdemona, Juliet, the shadow of Hamlet's father. And, of course, we must not forget about the achievements of Russian literature. Let us recall the heroes from Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita and Gogol's Evenings on a Farm Near Dikanka. From the realistic tradition, one can mention Anna Karenina and even the dog Mu-mu.
- Behemoth the cat is my favorite character. - laughs Irina from St. Petersburg, 27 years old. - And, of course, I did not miss the opportunity to reincarnate in him. It is very good that I took a book with me and carried it under my arm: everyone immediately understood that I was not just a tomcat, but a famous literary character.
One of the environmental youth organizations held a Halloween themed trash nightmares. The guests were dressed up in Halloween costumes from plastic bags, empty bottles, beer cans and even boxes of household appliances. If you want to make the world cleaner, you can adopt progressive experience. After creating such costumes, there will be no garbage left, at least in your apartment.
“I took out an old gas mask and a military raincoat. So in a matter of minutes I got a costume of a Chernobyl victim. - says Vera, 18 years old, a biology student from Moscow State University. - I do not blaspheme anything! This is the nightmare of our time - it can also be remembered on Halloween!
