Ghoul Halloween Costume Ideas

Maybe you've just crawled out of a puddle of radioactive waste after an atomic apocalypse, or maybe you just need a fresh cup of iced coffee. Regardless of the reason, looking like a ghoul is usually never a good thing - except on Halloween, of course.

The Face

This is the only night of the year where what’s outside is more important than the inside. As such, you'll need to make sure your makeup is on-point to match with the rest of your ghoul Halloween costume.

A generous supply of black eyeshadow should circle the area around your eyes to give it a sunk-in look (think raccoon, but bigger). Afterward, the rest of your face should be coated with a pale foundation or powder to achieve a skeleton-like appearance. You can also apply some of the eyeshadow to your cheeks, nose and forehead to make your face look even more ghoulie.

The Outfit

No ghoul shops at Forever 21! You have a bit of creative freedom here, as ghouls can come from nearly any time period. As an idea, you can tear up some old, grey clothes and throw on a dusty pirate hat; or you look like you just crawled out from a deep-sea shipwreck. With your ghoul costume complete, you can stager over to your next Halloween party with all the confidence of a long-dead creature.
