Dark Halloween Costumes
Art Class Halloween Costume Ideas
If you think about it, creating your own Halloween costumes is undoubtedly a form of artistic expression. Why not turn the idea on its head and actually dress up as members of an art class? Here is how to splash the colors together:
For this costume, you want to aim for a stern, strict persona. This art teacher knows all there is to know about art but would never be caught with a drop of paint on them - they are ALL about business. To start, wear professional shoes (ladies, heels work just fine, for men, black dress shoes will do).
Next, wear black business pants, a white button-down shirt, and a black tie. Complement the outfit with a pair of large glasses and hair styled to your desire. To accessorize, be sure to carry around some art supplies that you'd see at a studio - a ruler, a package of pastels, a paintbrush and canvas set. Luckily, there is a lot of wiggle room with this costume and you can get as creative as you would like.
Every art studio has that one student that just falls in love with the process and seemingly cannot keep the paint on the canvas. It inevitable ends up all over their body and clothing. For this costume, you want to lay an oversized t-shirt on top of some newspaper. Make sure you have a wide variety of paint on hand and get to work.
Spill blots of different colors all across different areas of the shirt. As you allow the shirt to dry, now its time to get a little dirty yourself. Smear various colors of the paint across your arms and neck, suggesting that you are such an enthusiastic art student, you can't even keep the paint on the canvas.
It is entirely up to you how much paint you want to spill on yourself. Once the shirt has dried completely, put it on and you are good to go. Be sure to accessorize with art supplies as well.
The anal art student is in many ways the opposite of the expressive art student. This person takes their work seriously and is entirely committed to creating the best work possible. For this costume, wear beige, tight-fitting khaki pants, a white t-shirt, and a beret of your color choice. It is okay to spill a little paint on your outfit, but again, this student is more focused on the painting.
This student always seems to have a paintbrush in hand and is hard at work creating the next masterpiece. You can get creative in the ways you wish to express the "anal" side of the art student, but this general guideline is a great start. If you and your friends show up to the next Halloween gathering as members of an art studio, you'll certainly be the talk of the weekend.
