This week I’m going to stray away from my weekly reviews about anime episodes. As much as I’d love to share my thoughts on Zombieland Saga I want to talk about Halloween.
Halloween is one week away from today! If you’re like me and are super lazy you probably wait until the day before to decide on a costume. You want something simple – you want something that can probably be assembled with items in your closet. At this point, you’re probably half committed to the idea but don’t want to look like an idiot.
If you’re an anime fan and want to look super kawaii I’ve got the costume idea for you!
Here are three EASY Halloween costumes from popular animes:
- Cells at Work! – Red Blood Cell
All you need is a lot of red. You’ll need a pair of jean shorts with a red belt, a black t-shirt, a red jacket, a red and black hat (a red beret can probably work), white gloves, black socks and red shoes. If you wanted, you could even colour your hair red at this point.
It’s an easy costume to assemble. Majority of the items are easy to find in your closet, from a friend or at like a regular clothing department.
All you need is a blue ¾ sleeve cotton dress, a red bow, red flats, a brown side bag and a broom! If you have a black cat that will complete the outfit.
It’s a classic look. If no one can guess who you are, just remember that you still look cute.
This one requires a little DIY and a little imagination. So, get your arts and crafts ready! You’ll need an over-sized grey t-shirt, and preferably grey leggings to match. You’ll need to cut out the tummy and markings out of construction paper and attach it to the shirt. To make the ears, you can use a headband and cardboard to cut out the shape of the ears. I suggest using a hot glue gun to make sure that everything stays in place. You can also make the little leaf umbrella with construction paper and a stick. To finish off the costume you can use makeup to draw whiskers and a nose.
Like I said, this costume requires more effort – but it can be done well if you use the proper materials to create the added designs like the stomach and ears. If no one gets it, at least you tried, right?
Last minute anime costumes can be so cool if you have a majority of the elements for the costume. You can be as creative as you want or you can put in minimal effort. It’s Halloween so have fun with it!
