American Horror Story Costumes

American Horror Story is one of the best shows for the last few years.  Each season focuses on different characters dealing with new situations.  The episodes can be quite sinister and definitely keep people itching for more excitement!

You can do so much with costume ideas from this show.  Costumes could be made based on any of the show’s popular characters.  For example – Twisty the Clown is pretty creepy and a good scary clown face is sure to attract attention!

You can find some costumes based on his character that have the same attention grabbing, adrenaline pumping reaction as when he first appeared on screen.

Some of these costumes come with a latex mask that’s such a replica of his face, you’ll easily win the scariest costume at any Halloween party if there’s such a category.

Most of these costumes that have the masks feature his wild three tuffs of hair. Some fans think the two side tuffs are meant to resemble horns. With some choices, all you get is the mask for the costume, but with others, you do have the entire clown outfit included.

These are all usually white. The costume is mainly a pair of pants and a shirt with the colorful pom pom balls of three down the front of the shirt. You can find some of these costumes with gloves, but not all of them have those.

The show also brought fans the character of Larry Harvey. When you look at him, it’s clear to see that his face has been burned. This character with his dark motives became one of the must see storylines.

You can find some of the Larry Harvey costumes with the facial mask that shows the burns the character has. Some of these even have the same strange eyes that make the character stand out.

You can get his costumes in sizes that are suitable for adults or older teens. One of the other cool characters on the show is Pepper. This character struck a chord with fans for the ill way that she was treated due to her facial features.

When the character was framed for a murder she didn’t commit and sent away, many fans hoped Pepper would find a better life than the one of ridicule she’d faced.

You can dress as this intriguing character. Some of the costumes you can find based on Pepper will feature many of her well known facial features like the ones that show her protruding teeth that stick out from her wide gums.

You’ll also notice the mask portion in some of the costumes features the characters’ bald head and small portion of hair. There are many American Horror costumes to choose from – just make sure you order online and early to get your favorite pick and size!

Frozen Halloween Costumes – Anna, Olaf, And Elsa

This past year, Frozen was one of the most popular movies for adults and kids alike. Frozen Halloween costumes are going to be some of the hottest costumes for teens and younger kids this Halloween!

Elsa is one of the few main characters of the movie and the Elsa costume is a great one. She wears a really nice light blue dress that is covered with white snowflakes. It looks quite a bit like the dress she wore in the movie while singing “Let It Go”! Any teenage girl will look like a queen since the dress is regal and quite flowy as you move.

To finish out the costume you’ll need a few accessories (that shouldn’t be too costly). Start with a tiara for their crown. Then you’ll want to get some sparkly shoes and some tights in a blue color. If you want to go all out you can find a wig that looks just like Elsa’s hair!

Another of the main characters teens will want to dress up as is Anna – Elsa’s sister. The Anna Halloween costume is pretty easy to find. It’s a really nice dress (just like Elsa’s). The blue dress is darker than the one Elsa wears. For the complete look you’ll need a cape (which comes with the official version of the costume, thankfully). The cape helps the teen or young girl stay warm while trick or treating or going to a Halloween party with friends or family.

You may want to consider a tiara for Anna’s costume as well (though it’s not necessary). There are some nice wigs that match Anna’s hair really well.

To really go all out and finalize both girls’ costumes there are a lot of options for jewelry in the Frozen theme. Amazon has a ton of bracelents and such to choose from.

Olaf is another great character from the Frozen movie. Teenage boys or girls could really dress up as Olaf this year. The Olaf costume is easy to figure out. You’ll need a white jumpsuit with a full hood. Wear either a brown or white t-shirt (with long sleeves) underneath the jumpsuit. You’ll also need some white boots, slippers, or booties to complete the look.

Progressive Insurance Flo Costume For Halloween

Every now and then a commercial will feature a character that stands out and everyone just loves that character. Flo is the adorable, upbeat host of many of Progressive Insurance’s commercials.

She’s a fun costume pick for any Halloween event and you can look just like her with a few simple accessories. The first thing you’ll want to work on is capturing Flo’s hairstyle.

It’s often described as perky and it fits her personality. Style your hair so your bangs part to the side and give your hair some extra volume in the back. For best results, try using a volume styling hair insert.

Once you’re done with that, add a simple navy headband and you’ll be well on your way to looking just like Flo. If you don’t want to style your hair like Flo’s or if you don’t have time to, you can opt for a wig that’s already styled and just add a headband to it.

Once you’ve finished with styling your hair, you’ll need the clothing part of the costume. For this, you’ll want to wear a white polo and white pants. Next, grab a white apron.

There are actually official aprons with Progressive’s logo available or you can use a heat transfer to put the logo on your apron if you want to do it yourself. For shoes, opt for blue sneakers. If you want to match Flo exactly, wear Navy Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers.

After you have Flo’s outfit and hair done, you’ll want to get a few accessories to complete the look. The first accessory to look for is an ‘I Heart Insurance’ pin. This badge is usually pinned to Flo’s apron on the top right side.

On the left side of the apron across from the badge is Flo’s nametag. Her nametag is white with two blocks of color above it. The first block of color is orange and the second one is blue. Flo’s name is typed in all caps using a plain font.

You’ll want to purchase a watch that’s small and has a brown leather band to match Flo’s if you don’t already have one like it. Finally, don’t forget the auto insurance box that Flo carries. You can create your own insurance box or you might be able to find one to purchase that you can use as a prop.

Now all you need to do is add some bright red lipstick and your Flo costume will be complete. If you want to match Flo’s lipstick exactly, then opt for MAC Lady Bug lipstick since it’s the official brand she wears.

Sheldon’s costume is basically made up of clothing that a student would wear. He likes brown pants, a long t-shirt with a short sleeved t-shirt layered on top and a pair of brown lace up shoes.

A fun example is the word “Bazinga”.

Howard Wolowitz Halloween Costume
Howard likes to think of himself as a ladies man and his clothing is a little over the top.Most of his costume can be found in second hand shops that have a seventies vibe.

A very popular look for him is the turtleneck worn underneath a plaid shirt. This is then tucked into a pair of pants that are a little bit too tight for him. As a babe magnet, he also wears a leather belt with a oversized buckle so that the ladies can zone in on that particular area.

Howard’s choice of footwear is a pair of tennis shoes that colour co-ordinate with the pants that he is wearing.

Howard has the worst bowl cut hairstyle ever. This can be replicated by getting a short dark brown wig.

Alex wears the tan coloured prison outfit. It is the same style as Piper’s orange scrubs. Again, you could check out the fancy dress stores or see if you can find a set in the nurse’s uniform section of the store.

Best Game Of Thrones Halloween Costumes

Game of Thrones is an American Fantasy drama series. The story is based on a collection of fantasy novels. The show is set in a medieval land that is populated by a host of kings, queens, love, war and a lot of violence.

The show has made stars of the actors and two fantastic characters that you could choose as inspiration for your Halloween costumes are Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drago.

Daenerys Targaryen Costume
Daenerys Targaryen is a major female character in the show. As she is the last remaining survivor of King Aerys II Targaryen, who was ousted from his throne by rebels, she believes that she is the rightful queen of the Seven Kingdoms.

The Royal Blue Dress
There are a few dresses that you can choose from, depending on the style that you prefer. If you want to go for a formal look, then you might like the royal blue dress that she wears with the long blue cape.

The Dothraki Khaleesi Costume
If you prefer the earthy tones and you are happy to show off a little more flesh, choose the outfit that consists of a brown bustier top with a brown leather and suede skirt that sits low on the hips. Add a pair of leather fingerless gloves and knee high boots and your look is complete.

The Hair
Daenerys has long white blond hair. This is not the natural colour for the majority of women but it is fairly easy to locate a beautiful wig. It is a good idea to buy a basic long wig and style it yourself. You can add the waves and ringlets and the little plaits at the side to hold the hair back. Fortunately there is a great blue dress that comes with a quality wig that will work well for Daenerys

Khal Drogo Costume

If you are going to a Halloween party as part of a couple, then the choice of a Khal Drogo costume would be perfect. He was married to Daenerys but was killed in the first season of the show. The character may be gone but this is still a very popular choice as a Halloween costume.

Khal Drogo’s Outfit
This costume consists of a high waisted belt-like top made from leather and suede fabrics that are cut into different shapes and sewn together. These are worn over a pair of brown leather or suede pants. Add a gold metal belt or a leather apron on top of the pants.

If you can not find a specific Khal Drogo costume, you can create your own by customising a male warrior or gladiator costume.

As a warrior, Khal Drogo has many weapons. You can choose to accessorise your Halloween costume with a set of daggers or a large fake sickle. Add a pair of leather arm guards and a pair of sturdy brown boots and you will be all set.

The Hair
Khal’s hair is long and brown. You can choose to leave it loose or tie it back away from the face. He also has a moustache and a long beard which is tied into sections. Use colourful elastic bands or embroidery thread to re-create this look.

As well as the dark facial hair, Khal’s eyes are outlined with thick black eye-liner and eye-shadow. This helps to make him look like even more of a fierce warrior.

The Tattoos
Khal Drogo’s body is adorned with tattoos that feature prominently on his back, shoulders and they also decorate his pec muscles. The tattoos are like his warrior armour. This can be added with body paint using a pale blue shade.
