Continuing on with my creepy, Halloween appropriate costumes, I have today created a Lord Voldemort, He Who Shall Not Be Named, costume. I know that I’ve already done a Harry Potter costume this month with my Bellatrix Le Strange costume, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to show you how easily you could create this nightmarish costume.
Literally all you need is makeup, a bald cap and two large garbage bags. That’s it. To make the robe split two large trolley bin garbage bag down one side, then tape the two bags together on one side of the cut. It’ll take you around 10 minutes total and was the basis for my Maleficent costume earlier this year. After you’ve made the robe, throw on the bald cap, plaster on some makeup to hide your eyebrows and create dark red shadows around your eyes and you’re done!
