• The Veil
Just as the black widow probably wore a veil when she got married, she'll be wearing a black veil when she's mourning her murdered husband. If you're having trouble finding a black veil, look for some black tool (the kind they use to make crinoline) at the fabric store and make your veil out of that.
Make your face look pale and underfed. If you're into obvious metaphors, you could also draw a little spider on your cheek for good measure. If you want to freak people out, then glue on a plastic spider and put cob webs in your hair.
Better yet, carry a handful of fake spiders and throw them at people.
You could also carry around the knife / gun / nuclear warhead that you used to kill your husband. Cover it in fake blood. Want to give your husband the kiss of death this year? Hint at your potential murderous betrayal by dressing up as a black widow!
Pumpkin Head Costume
Harvest Moon - By Jack Mann
Jack-o-lanterns aren't just symbols of the season, they can make a great costume, too. Have you considered taking on a creepy appearance and trying out a pumpkin head Halloween costume? There are a few different ways to go about this classic look:
• Traditional Jack-O-Lanterns
Wear a plastic pumpkin on your head (or a real one, if you can stand the smell) that's carved out to look like a jack-o-lantern. Think of it as a mask that covers your entire head. For the rest of your body, you can wear regular clothing splashed with blood, or a traditional scarecrow garb. Both concepts are easy to make; all it really requires is old clothes which can be purchased at a thrift store.
Maybe you want to go more for the "crazed killer who happens to wear a pumpkin as a mask" theme. In that case, you can either carve out a pumpkin with a mean smirk, or you can buy a surreal plastic pumpkin head with a more elaborate expression.
The clothes are up to you, but something common and mundane might make the costume more unnerving. After that, choose your weapon: a machete or a scythe might be a good choice since it fits with the whole harvest season. You could say that you're a reaper of human beings.
Add a splash of fake blood if you want further realism. Really, there are so many things you can do with a costume like this. So if you want to celebrate the harvest with a vegetable (or is it a fruit?) on your noggin, consider wearing a pumpkin head Halloween costume this year!
Invisible Man Cosutme
Can U See Me? - By Mike Johnson
There's also something really creepy about seeing a set of clothes walking around with no one in them, so being invisible makes for a great Halloween costume. Here are a few different approaches on how to put your Invisible Man costume together:
One method you can use to make yourself appear invisible is to wear an outfit that covers you from head to toe, including a dark hood. Inside the hood, where your face would be, you can wear a mask that makes your head look invisible in the dark.
These masks usually have some kind of reflective material on them, so of course they're not really making your face invisible. In broad daylight, the effect would probably be lost, but at night you will look invisible from far away.
While this is harder to do, you might look more convincing if you build a costume that allows you to hide your hands and head, so that you look invisible. It's sort of like a headless horseman costume, where your shirt comes up over your head, and your collar is raised, but contains no neck. You would also wear long sleeves that hang past your hands, or put gloves on.
Finally, you can just do the traditional Invisible Man from the old horror movie and wrap your face in bandages, while wearing gloves, sunglasses, and a trench coat.
People will usually immediately know who you are because this iconic image is so recognizable. Are you the kind of person who prefers to go unnoticed during Halloween? Hide in the shadows with an Invisible Man costume!
The Evil One - By Silvia Platt
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. However, if you want to show some skin make sure its all red. 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.
