How To Make Your Face Mask Part of Your Halloween Costume

With the Covid-19 regulations making face masks necessary, they have to be a part of your Halloween costume this year. However, that doesn’t mean that your character has to just wear a bland face mask. Instead, why not use this as an opportunity to get even more creative?

 

Nurse

Get an ordinary face mask and some scrubs to celebrate the NHS and their work this Halloween. Maybe even dye your hair the different colours of the rainbow to fully embrace the 2020 ‘Clap for the NHS’ spirit.

Alternatively, go in the opposite direction and splatter some red food dye on the scrubs and face masks. This will make for a regular Halloween spooky nurse.

 

Snow White

To make a Snow White costume all you really need is a deep blue top, a yellow skirt and a red headband that has a bow on it. Though, you can get Snow White fancy-dress costumes. The favoured face mask for this outfit is one with an apple-theme. Etsy and Redbubble have some really nice masks with apple designs which will be perfect for any Snow Whites this year.

 

Winnie the Pooh

This is a relatively easy costume, but will still look really cute. All you need are mustard trousers, a red t-shirt (preferably a loose one), a long-sleeved mustard top (wear the red one over this) and a cloth mustard face-mask. Pair the outfit with some cute mustard bear ears and you’re all set to go.

An alternative is that you get a long-sleeved top, bear ears, cloth face mask and trousers in a plain brown colour, to go just as a normal bear.

 

Vampire

You can buy a Vampire costume or just make one by either getting a black suit and a red frilly shirt or a black dress. Get a plain black face mask and use stencils to make a mouth by drawing on small triangles that look like fangs, then paint these fangs with water-based, non-toxic paint or red food colouring to look like blood.

 

Pumpkin

Quite possibly the easiest of all the ideas, dress in orange clothes or a ready-made pumpkin costume. The face mask you need is orange cloth. You can either go simple and quick, leaving the outfit just like that or using non-toxic glow-in-the-dark paint, create a face so it looks like your actually a carved pumpkin.

 

Pirate

You will need a red bandana, a white shirt/blouse (or a red and white striped t-shirt), black shoes and black trousers/skirt. Grab a red scarf and tie it around your waist. You can complete the look with a fake plastic sword, if you really want to go all in. Get a face mask that has a skull on it and you will be able to say, “Ahoy!”, with safety and style.

 

Witch

Get a black dress, black boots and a witch’s hat. Using a cloth face mask (any dark colour will do) and using the silver star stickers that you can get from craft stores, put these on the mask. The great thing about this is that once Halloween is over you just take the stickers off and you’re left with a plain-coloured mask that will be appropriate for everyday use.

 

There are heaps and heaps of ideas that you can use to embrace the Halloween spirit, mask and all. Just because it is a little different this year, doesn’t mean that you can’t still have fun. Dress up, get some sweets and gather your household round to watch a scary movie.
