Happy Hallow-month! It’s the most wonderful time of the year. It’s time to hoard candy, carve pumpkins and most importantly dress up. Do you get costume anxiety? No worries, we’re here to help you. Whether you’re looking for a low-key costume to wear to the office or an extravagant costume to win first place at a party, we’ve got you covered. We’re starting off with a low effort suggestion this week to ease you into it. Here’s how to rock a demon costume.
Just Wear Horns
Horns are great. You can wear them with jeans and a shirt and it’s still obvious that you’re wearing some kind of costume. Which makes them perfect for the office or if you’re going to a Halloween party that didn’t specify if you should wear a costume. It’s the lowest amount of effort with the greatest reward. They also make a good starting point if you want to step up your costume a bit. For example, wear your yoga pants and a workout top with your horns and voila, you’re an exercising demon.
Horns are a great start to realizing your demonic potential but if you really want to sell your look then we suggest adding contacts. The 17mm contacts make your pupil and iris look bigger which really helps to sell that creature from the underworld vibe. If you want to stick with ‘normal’ sized eyes then yellow, red, black or white will help make everyone around you feel a bit uneasy. You can unnerve your friends without having to really wear a costume. Although, if you’re going to stick with jeans then we suggest pairing a metal band tee (or Taylor Swift shift if you’re feeling sassy) to bring home those demonic vibes.
Wear Whatever You Want
The great thing about demons is that they don’t really have a set outfit. Want to where all red like devil? Go for it. Want to wear a tailcoat like Black Butler? We support you. Have you always wanted to buy a corset but never had the occasion to wear one? Fantastic, demons totally wear corsets. Let your creativity run wild. Give your demon a back story. Make up a fictional world and wear an outfit that makes you feel good.
Demon is a great costume idea and horns are an excellent addition to any tickle trunk. You have the freedom to make your demon whatever you want. Don’t worry if you can’t think of anything, you can always just tell people you’re from Buffy. Want more costume suggestions? Be sure to follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
