You guys…this is my SEVENTH Halloween costume of the year and I’m so obsessed with it. If you’re gunna do Halloween, the best way to do it is with a scary costume and you can’t go wrong with a little Nightmare on Elm Street and Freddy Krueger for Halloween! If you follow me on Instagram then you already saw a sneak peek of this over the weekend, but I knew if I was doing makeup this extensive, that I needed to share it with you!
I knew there was no way I was going to wear a mask when I decided to dress up as Freddy Krueger for Halloween, so I needed to find a tutorial to follow that looked amazing, but wasn’t too difficult. I also knew I didn’t want to use any latex or anything because I’ve never worked with it before and I wasn’t sure a Halloween costume that I was actually going out in was the time to experiment. Overall I’m pretty happy with the way this turned out. It doesn’t look as amazing as the tutorial I followed, but being that this is the first time I really did something like this it was great! And everyone loved it! Here’s the link to the Youtube tutorial I followed!
Here’s the link again for the Youtube video that I followed to create this look. Mine doesn’t look as good as hers, but I’m pretty happy with how it came out! I will say that you definitely need to give yourself a LOT of time if you do plan on recreating it. I would allot yourself two hours because the shading takes a good amount of time, and even when I was completely done I went back in and drew a few more wrinkles and darkened a couple of areas.
All the makeup I used to create this Freddy Krueger look were things I already had, so you more than likely won’t have to pick up anything new to do it!
