Scary Scarecrow Halloween Costume

Scary Scarecrow Halloween Costume

I was originally going to be the Scarecrow from the Batman movie. But a suit with a piece of burlap over my head didn't seem like an exciting costume. So I kinda went with a traditional Scary Scarecrow Halloween Costume.

The head’s a piece of burlap, that I used some polyurethane on to keep the folds and creases stiff. I airbrushed it, so that it wouldn’t look like a sack with two holes over my head. I made both the pants and the tunic using patterns that I found online, and then put some patches (using leftover burlap) and some stitching detail using twine to make them look more authentic.

Then I found an old straw hat, and got a pair of buckskin gloves and painted them brown to match the costume. From there I just added some raffia in that hat to give the effect of hair, and used some natural fiber rope to tie around my hands, ankles, and waist – along with making a noose to hold the mask on. I also used an old scythe that I found at a yard sale for a prop.

DIY Scarecrow Halloween Costume Idea

DIY Scarecrow Halloween Costume Idea

This DIY Scarecrow Halloween costume idea came to me when I saw Halloween decorations. I thought it would be different from regular costumes. This costume was very easy and fun to make.

First I found a hat at a garage sale for $2. Then I took fake hay from another scarecrow and cut it off. Then I stapled it to the inside layer of the hat (you can also hot glue). After that I found a pair of overalls and cut patches from other old cloths and hot glued them on. I also hot glued some hay to the patches to make it look better. I used gloves and cut the tips of the fingers off.

I went on YouTube to find a video on how you can do your makeup, here it is:



It is very easy and simple. The video shows step by step on how you can do your makeup for a scarecrow. I used black and brown eyeliner which was very cheap.

Coolest Homemade Tim Burton Inspired Scarecrow Costume 24

Homemade Tim Burton Inspired Scarecrow Costume

Homemade Tim Burton Inspired Scarecrow Costume

For my Halloween costume I decided to be a scarecrow. I was mostly inspired by Tim Burton's movies. I did not want it to be cute!

I bought a plain dress at the thrift store and had material for the patches. The dress, gloves and hat took me around five hours to complete. I made my hat by weaving straw into it and gluing on fall items. I spent an hour and a half painting my face to match my dress. I applied buttons with spirit gum to my cheeks and a zipper to my chest for the hood look.

This Homemade Tim Burton Inspired Scarecrow Costume cost me around $15 to make and I had a blast wearing it. It held up well even after a night of dancing at a great rock concert. None of my friends recognized me. I make my own costume every year and so far this has been my favorite.
