If you like to spend your Halloween sending chills up the spines of strangers, taking your costume to the next level each year is a competition in itself. If you have yet to take on the shape of some reptilian monster, going as a lizard man is a sure way to make your friends scream in delight - or fear.
It's time to get scaly. While you, unfortunately, can't turn your skin into that of a reptilian, there are some ways you can achieve the same illusion. With a generous supply of dark-green body paint, you can easily make your face and torso nearly unrecognizable (you can also use a sheer long-sleeve instead).
next, you can mimic scales' appearance by using a black mesh shirt as the top layer and slapping on a small amount of glitter.
A pair of green color contacts will turn your costume from scary to straight-up bone-chilling. Of course, the most critical step during your transition into a full-blown lizard man depends on your fearsome horns. You can make these from clay, craft foam or masking tape, and attach them to your back and shoulders using a body-safe prosthetic glue. With your costume complete, it's time to slither over to your next Halloween party and take your place as a terrifying creature of the night.
