Carrie Costume – Carrie
You really could not ask for an easier fancy dress to make yourself than a Carrie fancy dress. The basis of this halloween costume is taking a prom dress and covering yourself in fake blood. Below we have listed everything that you will need to make your own Carrie costume.
|Your Carrie costume will be made around the dress you will need.
Here you should be looking for a simple prom style dress. The dress you choose should be a light color and preferably light pink, white, or light grey.
|On your head you will need to wear a tiara when making your own DIY Carrie costume.
This can be quite a cheap plastic tiara made from plastic which looks like it is actualyl silver with diamonds.
|What will really make your DIY Carrie costume look awesome is the use of fake blood.
You will need plenty fake blood as your dress will need covering in it as will your neck, chest, arms, and face.
|A really nice touch to your Carrie fancy dress is a bouquet of flowers.
You can use artificial flowers or real flowers. We would recommend using artificial flowers as they will be harder wearing.
Carrie Hair – Carrie Wig
