Halloween costumes and makeup ideas, Halloween music too!

Here is some last minute Halloween inspiration for those of you who plan to make a day and night out of it.

We dealt with Halloween food, Halloween decorations and pumpkin carving and now it’s time for some Halloween costumes ideas, spooky nails and Halloween makeup and even some Halloween songs to get you into the mood for creepy.

Before anything else, here’s my Halloween music playlist – it was hard to choose 20 favorite Halloween songs - these however can be listened anytime and have wonderful dancing beats – a great Halloween party involves crazy dancing:

Superstition by Stevie Wonder
Thriller by Michael Jackson
I put a spell on you by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins
Monster Mash by Bobby "Boris" Pickett & the Crypt-Kickers
Trick or Treat by Andrew Gold
Toccata and Fugue in D Minor by J S Bach
Ghostbusters by Ray Parker Jr.
Somebody's Watching Me by Rockwell
Halloween Mary - PF Sloan
Welcome to my Nightmare by Alice Cooper
Werewolves of London by Warren Zevon
This Is Halloween by Marilyn Manson
Witchy Woman by Eagles
A Nightmare on My Street  by D.J. Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince (Will Smith)
Hungry like the Wolf  by Duran Duran
Dinner with Drac, Pt. 1 by John Zacherley
Moon Over Bourbon Street by Sting
The Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley
Halloween by Grant Lee Buffalo
Lies of the Living Dead by The Minus 5

Some spooky fairytale characters to help a heart attack!
 Some blood lipstick anyone?
Haunted Castle?! Yes please! I'll take two of those!
A bit windy, isn't it?

We're kicking things off with a bunch of inspiring Halloween makeup ideas to build your Halloween costume around - I personally think that's an easy way to end up wearing something amazing and original!

Absolutely stunning Halloween makeup - evil forest fairy! And how about that headpiece mask?!

  Yet another great and popular Halloween makeup idea -  be a witch! The secret is the eyes makeup - they hold the magic !

A cool Halloween costume idea for all the pop culture lovers is dressing like a comic book character! Here's the make-up to match!

The ever so popular zombie/skeleton Halloween make-up!

Some inspiring Halloween makeup pictures for evil/good fairytale princesses!

...and the creepy Lana Del Rey nails to match!

 Dia De Los Muertos make-up and costume! These are utterly spooky!

 The white queen!

I couldn't exclude the Halloween vampire makeup because, let's  face it, we all want eternal life and extraordinary beauty (that's the promise according to Twilight and The Vampire Diaries:))))

The next section is a visual list of the best Halloween costumes I've seen lately! When it comes to adults Halloween costumes, I'm obviously attracted to something creative or at least something that makes you/me look hot without being too sluty and graphic! That being said, here is what caught my eye this year around the World Wide Web.

Firstly we have a very intriguing  Half Man - Half Woman costume!

...and a seductive mourning widow!

If you're into sexy Halloween costumes then an evil Snow White version in mustard over the knee tights and a lace body suit is the way to go! I love the red bow headband and huge knife as accessories. I'm also in love with this fairytale queen mask makeup - flawless!
If you want to include actual fashion trends into your Halloween costume try dressing up like a baroque doll at Deadman's Ball!

 Another easy and fashion forward Halloween costume that doesn't compromise your hotness is an eye goddess!

The best life sized Victor Van Dort from Burton's movie Corpse Bride (which I'm obsessed with by the way) I have ever seen!

 And how about a truly original Halloween costume - dress as Harley Quinn, Joker’s Bitch!

I don't have kids and don't plan on having any time soon, but these kids Halloween costumes are so adorable, I couldn't help it! Kids have the best time on Halloween when even the grown ups resort to games, candy and magic!

 Cute owl tutu dress and headband!

The most beautiful mini Little Red Riding Hood in the world and an unbearably cute ladybug baby Halloween costume!

More kids Halloween costumes - Ariel, the little mermaid and a very energetic rocket boy taking off!

 Alice in Wonderland - the extra sweet variety!

 My heart can't take the amount of adorable in this picture: you can't really blame the wolf for trying to eat Little Red Riding Hood if she looked like this, can you?!

Iva said...

OMG... The one with the black pupils is so frightening ! A really good idea :D


miss pleasant said...

Do you have any ideas where to get a Harley Quinn costume like that? All the Harley Quinn costumes I see are catsuits but I would really love a dress version like the picture you have in your blog.

Alice in vintageland said...

@miss pleasant - I don't really know where you could get one, I think maybe improvising one yourself would be possible if you have some sewing skills: you could look for a black and red dress and add the ruffled details yourself! :)

Googled into page okay but, when we scrolled down to the SnowWhite animation, my wife collapsed.

Please NEVER use high-frequency flicker, as this may trigger seizures. Remember that flickery Anime episode in Japan that hospitalised thousands of kids ??

Thank you.

Artsygirl said...

Um, one of those isn't Alice in Wonderland, its Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. Unfortunately Harley isn't very original anymore - and most of them are little kids who are Suicide Squad fans and don't have a clue about Classic Harley -_-
