My month of DIY costumes shot in front of the actual shooting locations continues!! Day 23 is here and it's a Halloween horror classic. Today’s costume comes from:
I feel like I catch this movie each year during all the Halloween marathons on TV.
So, the actual house from the movie is totally in my hood! It looked like this...
..and like this in the movie...
...but in real life, how lovely is this house!! Movie house = nightmares. IRL House = dreamy.
But, the best part of this movie...JOHNNY DEPP!! Love the horror movie starts for celebs. (Hello Jennifer Aniston in Leprechaun!!)
So, to complete a Freddy costume from Nightmare on Elm Street, here are the main elements you'll need:
2. Glove (I had a "Wolverine" glove that I used but there are Freddy gloves everywhere. Plus the real deal glove scares me to death!)
I put on my thrifted striped top, grabbed my plastic glove, and donned my hat for the easiest DIY costume to create.
Freddy's got some moves!
The red door matched the sweater so nicely!
This to me was one of the scariest things I saw when I was a kid.
Nightmares at slumber parties? Check!
As much as I've matured, if someone wore this and creeped up on me, I'd still lose it! I get scared over everything.
Twenty-three looks down, 8 to go!
