When you are a teen its hard to buy ready made costumes because you are to big for the children's costumes and too small for the adults costumes. Some stores do teen or tween costumes but we did not want to spend £40 on a Halloween costume that might not be worn again.
We were in our local Wilkinson and noticed that they had a teen range of costumes but were disappointed as I wanted to be different and witches, vampires and dark fairies are so popular. I loved the dress for the dark fairy the top was a corset design with a rag skirt but it had wings attached. We decided to buy the costume anyway and were thrilled to discover that the wings could be detached. It was only £10!
My brain pondered over what to dress up as, I searched for inspiration on-line coming across a lovely rag doll costume similar to the teen Lolita costume I loved. I decided I wanted to be an evil rag doll so we traveled to a wool shop and bought some blue and black wool.
We twisted the wool around my hair that was in bunches creating wool extensions that matched the dress. I also got some fake tattoos from Claire's accessories and some lace gloves from prim-ark to add affect. I did my eye-shadow up to my eye brows and very doll like make-up. I used fishnet tights and long black socks and wore school shoes.
I live for Halloween! And every costume I attempt to create a whole walking scene. So nothing is creepier than a porcelain doll collection, a lot of them. I wanted to be conveyed as collection come to life. I got a few dolls and took them apart and put them back in different ways. I hand painted and cracked their faces. The one doll I made out of different parts from other dolls and gave her creepy eyes.
I secured the dolls on sticks attached to my back (bruises to show for it!) The other two were tied to my wrists. I wanted the illusion of my face coming apart to reveal the doll coming to life. So I cut and shaped plastic and reshaped to the contours of my face along with make up and spirit gummed them to my face. And painted the mask.
Found the doll-esque dress at a vintage thrift store, curled my hair like my buddies and creep deville! The reaction was more than fun, people ran from me through the streets of Hollywood, some people could not even look at me due to their fear of dolls! I stayed in doll form and movement-even on the dance floor all night! Such fun, my job to creep was a complete success!
Coolest Creepy Doll Costume - makeup with added lashes
I did the makeup of this Creepy Doll costume following a YouTube tutorial and added fake eyelashes.
The dress was a kids dress. I cut away the sleeves and re-attached to a black short sleeve shirt, then cut away the shirt part of the dress leaving the bib area and pinning the bag into a bib part so it would just slip over my head. The bottom half I added a black tutu under it for volume .
I used nude panty hose and red paint on my hands to make bloody hand prints on my legs. I got a doll, glued black hair to it and used the scraps to make a look alike dress and added the mouth part with marker.
I also took the voice box from an old doll and sewed it on the inside of the front dress so that when you pushed it, it would make mama and crying sounds.
I helped my daughter make this creepy doll costume with inspiration from the great costumes on this website. I made the rag doll hair by attaching bundles on yarn, tied in the centre, to a dollar store black hat. This kept my daughter's head very warm on a cool fall night. The dress was an old one we already had. The apron was easily made from a white, eyelet skirt from a thrift store. The leggings and sleeves were also dollar store finds.
The makeup was fairly easy, white face with some black stitching added to complete the look. This costume was a big hit with her friends and some people didn't even recognize her. She did not have the knife with her but just had to hold it for the pictures. This Creepy Doll Costume was a lot of fun to make and was really very fun.
My daughter wanted to a Stitch Doll Girls Costume.
We bought a toot-toot, leggings, a turtle neck and some felt squares at the local craft store. Also purchased some puff paint. I then cut squares out of felt and hot glued them to the turtle neck. when they were glued we added puff paint to make it look like it was stitching. I also cut out a heart and added it to the turtle neck with hot glue.and put a pin through it.
I added puff paint around the arms and sleves to make it look like stitching. I used regular everyday make up painted her face. Black eyeliner for the stitching around her face. Purchased a headband and attatched a bow.
