Halloween Costumes for Redheads: The Red Queen

“Who’s been painting my roses red?!” The Red Queen knows what she wants and what she doesn’t want, so she’s the perfect alter-ego for any redhead at Halloween. Tune in to your inner sass and get demanding.

“Off with his head!”

Dressing up as the Red Queen from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland or the Queen of Hearts is certainly not the easiest option for a Halloween costume, but it is definitely one of the most creative and fun. Here’s how to get the Red Queen look…

Red skirt

A long and full red skirt forms the foundation of this iconic costume.



Pull&Bear at ASOS: UK £8.40, US $22

Chunky boots

Have a bit of fun with a loud and chunky pair of boots.


Blue eyeshadow and red lips are the staples you need. Follow this tutorial for the best way to apply.


Use curling tongs to create loose red curls and waves, then secure on top of your head and away from your face using bobby pins and a serious amount of hairspray.
