You’ve left it to the last minute but you need a Halloween costume. STAT. You can become Zipperface faster than you can run to the store to buy a costume. An easy last minute halloween costume.
Someone invited you to a Halloween party didn’t they? And you don’t want to go because you’re sitting on the couch and the weather is kind of gross and you *just* went out 4 months ago. PLUS you don’t have a costume. Well. I may not have the solution to the comfortable couch thing but I do have a solution for the costume thing.
You’re at home with no plans to go out for Halloween or to a Halloween party when suddenly … you are. You’re very popular. People want you to go places. You must make a mental note to be less charming in general.
If you don’t happen to have a wardrobe filled with suits of armour or Edwardian bosom pushing dresses, this easy Halloween costume should get you out the door in an hour or so – depending on how long you have to look for stuff around the house.
1, 12″ zipper ( skin toned is best )
Red face paint, or Vampire blood
2 way tape or spirit gum.
Don’t have these things around the house but wanna do this immediately? See if you have an old sweater or something you can steal a zipper out of. Make fake blood using one of these recipes.
Don’t have an old sweater or the ingredients to make fake blood? Rip the sweater off of the first person walking past you. With any luck they’ll also punch you in the face. Win, win. Extra win if they punch you in the nose which always produces magnificent amounts of blood.
Your best choice is to buy the fake blood. I got mine for $1 at my local Dollar Store. They sometimes sell zippers as well.
1. Remove the backing from one side of the two way tape and press it onto either side of the opened zipper. If you have spirit gum it’s the MUCH better choice.
2. Smear your nose, mouth and chin with “blood”.
3. Remove tape from other side of two way tape and gently press onto your face, taking care not to smear the blood onto it. If the two way tape is really strong press it against your shirt or pants until it catches enough lint to make it less sticky. Just enough to stay on your face, not sticky enough to rip half of it off when you remove your face zipper at the end of the night.
4. If the zipper isn’t close enough to your skin colour, rub it with foundation (makeup) (and also put the foundation on your face).
My niece asked me “If you’re at a Halloween party and someone asks what you are, what do you say? ”
You say “Awesome“.
