Best Horror Costumes to Cosplay

Grim Reaper Costume

The grim reaper is definitely one of the spookiest characters you could ever dress up as. This outfit is very easy to make; all you need is black clothes and some fake blood.

For the scythe, you will only need a few supplies: an old broomstick, coat hanger wire, 2 plastic tubes, orange electrical tape and PVC pipe glue. Other than that, you will only need some fake bones to finish off your look.

Is it just us, or does this grim reaper looks very uncomfortable? We seriously wouldn’t want to run into him in a dark alley.

Zombies Costume

If you are looking for a really creepy character to dress up as for this Halloween, why not try being zombies?

Zombies are definitely one of the most classic horror characters ever. This costume is better suited for people who want to dress up as a zombie couple. All you need are some old clothes, fake blood and white face paint.

For the female costume, you will need an old shirt and ripped jeans, while the male costume would consist of torn pants and a buttoned-down shirt. You can also wear sunglasses so your eyes won’t look too dead at the party.

Zombies might be old news by now, but that doesn’t stop people from dressing up as these undead creatures every single year.

Witch Costume

For adults and children alike, a witch costume is always in high demand during this time of the year. There are many different ways to dress up like a witch, but we’ve put together our favorite one for you.

There’s no need to spend days making homemade costumes since Halloween stores already have some really great witch ones out.

You can choose whether you want to wear a black dress or pants with high boots, which is always an option if rain is in the forecast. To make your outfit more colorful and eye-catching, you can add a colorful cape, hat and wig.

The witch costume is always a great choice for those who want to dress up as something simple and easy-to-do.

However, there’s no reason why you can’t make it more complex by adding some shoes or accessories to your look. We wouldn’t recommend wearing heels if you choose to go with this costume, though.

Vampire Costume

The vampire costume is without a doubt one of the most classic horror costumes. This outfit is very easy to make. All you need are some clothes, fangs and fake blood.

If you want to be an easy-to-do vampire, simply dress up in a black outfit and add a red ribbon to your hair.

If you want to add a more flamboyant touch to your vampire costume, you can add things like feather boas and other accessories. However, we would recommend not going overboard since it could look tacky.

Monstrous Costume Ideas

Monsters are another classic horror characters that never get old. We’ve put together a few of our favorite monster costumes so you can dress up as something different this year.

The Frankenstein Costume

If you want to dress up as Frankenstein, all you need is a black turtleneck and pants, which should be pretty easy to find at any Halloween store. You can also wear boots or shoes with leather straps.

To make your look more realistic, you can add suspenders and a belt to your outfit.

Frankenstein is definitely a classic Halloween costume, one that has been used over and over. For those who are looking for something more elaborate, you can try to find tights with torn ankles or shoes that have stitches on them.

If you want to take this look up another notch, all you need is some fake blood.

The Werewolf Costume

Just like Frankenstein, werewolves are another ancient Halloween character that never gets old. To dress up like one, simply wear clothes that allow you to move freely.

Also, nothing too elaborate is necessary since werewolves are not known to be overly fashionable.

If you want to make your look more interesting (without adding too many accessories), then we recommend wearing gray pants with a dark brown shirt that has ripped sleeves.

To top it all off, you can add a belt with some silver studs. You can even wear a wolf mask that makes it easier to see, but that’s not necessary if you don’t want to wear it.

The Mummy Costume

Last but not least, we have the mummy. You can find a lot of different variations in stores this year, so you should definitely be able to choose one that suits your needs.

There are some costumes that come with bandages, which look very neat when put together. However, if you want something simple, then just wear white clothes and add some fake blood around the eyes, mouth and hands (similar to what you would do for a vampire costume).

We hope you enjoyed this article on horror costumes you can cosplay. It’s not too late to get yourself a costume if you haven’t found one yet.
