Devil Costume Ideas For All Ages
When it comes to Halloween costume ideas, there's nothing more classic than a good old devil costume. There are a wide variety of devilish getups available in costume stores and on the web, but with planning, you can create your own unique do-it-yourself costume.
Kids Devil Costume
A red hooded jumper attached to a pair of pants for kids is an ideal devil costume. The pants can have yellow flames painted on them to depict the fires. Little black wings and a tiara of black horns complete the devil costume. A pair of red boots will look great on the child as well.
Another idea for kids this Halloween season is a monk's black robe with long, serrated sleeves. Black gloves and a face mask will complete this outfit. It will look like the evil one himself attended the party. Black boots will look great as well with this outfit.
Girls too can get into the Halloween mood by dressing up in a Halloween devil costume. A beautiful red dress with a black jacket will do. However, to depict the evil one, a tiara of horns and a pair of fangs will do to depict the devil. Black boots will complete the outfit. Props may include a tear done using red paint.
She Devil Costume
Who ever said that the devil had to be a man? If you're ready to rule the underworld in girlish style, then consider being a she-devil for Halloween. Here are some ideas on how to put it all together:
Depending on what kind of she-devil you are, there will be a different outfits to chose from. Generally speaking, the devil is seductive, so you probably want something a bit on the sexy side. Perhaps a black lacy skirt with fishnet stockings and a tight shirt. If you're not into that, you can always go the mysterious route and wear a dark trench coat or a leather body suit.
How mythical do you want your devil to be? If you like the fantasy element, then consider getting some demonic wings and maybe even a a pointed tail. If you want an even more elaborate costume and you're showing some skin, you might even want to draw on some scales or other demonic elements on your body.
Naturally, you'll want some kind of horned headpiece, or some horn prosthetics that you can attach to your head. How huge and elaborate they are is up to you, but they're basically a requirement or else you're not immediately recognizable as the devil.
Your face needs to be otherworldly, so you're going to want to give yourself a demonic makeup job or wear a disturbing demon mask. Again, how scary or ugly you make yourself look depends on the theme of your she-devil costume. If you're going the sexy route, make yourself look a little more human.
If you're trying to scare people, then feel free to make yourself unrecognizable. Ready to drag your friends into the fiery pits of Hell with you this Halloween? Try a she-devil costume and rule their condemned souls for the rest of eternity.
Men's Devil Costume
For whatever reason, the devil speak to some unknown fear in most of us. Even people who aren't particularly religious are often freaked out by supernatural dark entities.
To be a truly disturbing demon this Halloween, you will need to make yourself unrecognizable. Use prosthetics or a grotesque demonic mask to cover your face completely and erase any semblance of humanity. Ideally, your body should be covered in prosthetics or a dark cloak so that no patch of human skin is visible. Most importantly, you're going to need horns. The larger and more twisted, the better.
For an even greater effect, throw in some contact lenses that black out your eyes. Some large, dark wings like those of Satan from Dante's Inferno could further enhance your costume. The key here is to seem like you are channeling an otherworldly power, like you are stalking all the guests at the party and are intent on dragging them to hell with you.
