This is one of the easiest costumes to make because all you need is an old bed sheet.
What you need to do: Get a white sheet, and cut out two holes for your eyes. Be creative and cut holes in your sheet to be a “holy” ghost, or dress the sheet up with some makeup. Put blush on your ghostly cheeks, and smear lipstick where your mouth should be.
Make a statement by dressing up as one of America’s cultural icons who is also a symbol for feminism.
What you need to do: Get a long-sleeved denim or blue top, and roll the sleeves past the elbow. Pair it with jeans. Then put your hair up, and tie a red bandana around your head. Finally, pouf up your bangs and apply 1940s makeup.
Impress people with some gypsy magic and have fun walking around telling fortunes of your friends.
What you need to do: Get a head scarf, sparkly top, long skirt, and a shawl to drape over your shoulders. Wear lots of gold and flashy jewelry. Create a couple of fun fortunes for your friends and family and walk around with a serene, mysterious smile on your face.
The mime costume is for you if you want to give your voice a break for the night and want to express yourself through your actions.
What you need to do: Get some cheap white face paint, and paint your face with it. Wear black clothes or a striped white and black top if you have one. White gloves will complete the outfit, but they aren’t necessary.
