October has arrived, which means that Halloween is right around the corner! This year has been fairly zany in terms of social media filters, new apps, and movies, so there is no denying that the list of potential costume ideas has grown immensely. What better person to not only provide her viewers with the unique ideas but show them how to make them than YouTube personality, Wengie? The beauty blogger used her whacky creativity to craft some epic costumes for the 2016 holiday, most of which can have you get your squad involved.
Basically, everybody is going to be Harley Quinn this year, but they will be spending quite a few dollars to make their costume look authentic. Wengie is all about saving money, so she did a DIY tutorial that showed the perfect way to make your own Suicide Squad costume. By simply spray painting jean shorts to mimic Harley’s, airbrushing her iconic logo onto an old t-shirt, doing her eye makeup as messy as the crazy character’s, and adding a few key accessories, beautiful Wengie became insane Harley and the only thing better than the overall look was the fact that it was virtually free.
Another iconic character is Katana and her costume is incredibly simple to mimic. The blogger took a plain white mask, cut it in half from the below the nose, and elongated the eye slots to mimic a cat’s eyes. She used some bold black makeup to sit underneath the mask, tossed on a short black wig, and got her katana ready to use. Aside from the paint and perhaps the plastic sword, Wengie’s costume probably cost her under ten dollars.
After using cardboard to make her crescent moon, the next steps for the blogger surrounded applying bold black makeup, messing up a long black wig, applying some charcoal to her teeth, and perfecting her scream. Using a black outfit that she already had, Wengie invested in the iconic necklace worn by the character and matched it with rows of black beads to complete this spooky look.
