The point of Halloween is to look proper scary, right? And I think we can all agree that, with maybe the exception of the gang in Andy’s room, toys coming to life is among the creepiest things in life. Especially the ones that wield kitchen knives. *shudders*
That’s right, it’s Chucky. And I don’t mean the nice one from Rugrats. You can bring one of the greatest horror villains of all time to life with nothing but dungarees, red pen and a whole load of hairspray for your ginger hair.
Here are some tips on how to create the perfect Chucky doll Halloween costume for redheads…
Usually you can find all manner of stripy tops in Primark, or your nearest budget clothes store. If not, this one from Forever 21 comes in at £8.50.
Red laced sneakers. Converse, Vans, anything like that will work. In the New Look sale right now you can get these flatforms for a mere £4. You’re welcome.
Depending on how dedicated you are to achieving an authentic Chucky doll costume for Halloween, you have a few options.
There’s the full face of make-up, with prosthetics and contact lenses or you can go for a quick fix with a red Sharpie. We found a cool in-between video tutorial on the ‘tube, with minimal tools and fuss.
Grab some hairspray and get backcombing on that ginger mane. Straighten if necessary.
And to finish it off…
Grab a kitchen knife (blunted, please.) and VOILA: you’re transformed into the most twisted, perverted and repulsive of all the Halloween villains. Congrats.
