Red Head Costume Week: Chucky – Child’s Play

Oct 31, 2012 | 19 Comments

I’m a horror movie addict, so with my new hair, I just couldn’t resist a little Child’s Play action.  There’s nothing better than the all the scary movie marathons that go on all month.  A little Friday the 13th mixed with some Turner Classics for good measure (The Body Snatchers!) makes me a happy camper.  Oh, but obviously not one at Camp Crystal Lake :)

It was fun to make a creepier costume today, and all my costume components came from Goodwill!

Vintage Striped Shirt, Check!

I found a striped shirt with all primary colors which was the key element to getting this outfit complete!  I stitched it up to make it more fitted and then paired it with these guys…

Hello overalls!  Want to see how the whole costume came together??

Oh, and I needed a knife, er, glow in the dark weapon (per the packaging) to complete the scary look!

With my outfit and prop together, I played around with some eyeliner to make scars and used some different shades of red lipstick for blood, before trying to pin/spray/tease my hair to make it Chucky-esque.

My look was complete!
