This Homemade 80's Camp Counselor / Jason Voorhees Victim Costume is actually my 2009 Halloween costume. It was the first year I didn't have a costume planned, but at the last minute a friend and I decided to go out. I already had a cheap Jason Voorhees mask laying around, so I wanted to incorporate that somehow, but I also wanted to look cute. It took about 20 minutes to think of and make this costume, so although it isn't as polished as I would have liked, I think it's pretty original. I definitely didn't see anyone else wearing anything like it, and it was a great conversation starter with horror movie buffs.

I grabbed an old T-shirt, wrote "Camp Crystal Lake" on it in Sharpie, and splattered some fake blood on it. I put on some denim shorts, a red jacket that I thought looked outdoorsy, and summery wedge heels. I put my hair in a side ponytail as an homage to the 80's (The decade that made all of the best "Friday the 13th movies!) and applied my makeup as usual.

I splattered some cheap fake blood across my shirt and neck before realizing that I had a leftover jar of coagulating fake blood left over from the year before. So I applied that as the wound, but I still had the other stuff dripping down my chest. DEFINITELY get the kind that dries up, it looks so much better and is a lot less messy.

Finally I strapped the Jason mask to my belt, because I would never be the kind of horror movie character to go down without a fight!

Coolest Freddy Krueger Costume

Homemade Freddy Krueger Costume

Homemade Freddy Krueger Costume

This Freddy Krueger Costume is very simple to do.
First, find a striped Krueger look-a-like shirt "red and black, orange and brown, orange and black, or red and brown" any of the following combo will do.

Next the Krueger hat. I used a hat I would typical use on a night out, however most hats will go well just as long as it is either black, brown or something close to that.

Then the "Krueger" signature hands to top it off of course. As for bottoms, for this costumes I cut a pair of old black pants, you can go really short like I did and be "sexy Freddy" or you can do long pants for a more conservative or family friendly look.

Hope this helps, HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!
