Halloween is coming up this month and you may find yourself struggling on what to wear. Look no farther because this year you can impress your friends by wearing a unique costume based on your favorite artists! Read on to get inspired:
If Van Gogh is your favorite artist a costume inspired by him can’t Gogh wrong (too cheesy?). With his creativity and moving imagery that everybody loves, you can bet that a costume related to Van Gogh will get you compliments all night long. You could be a painting such as Starry Night:
Or if you wanted to get dressed up with a friend you can always go as the artist and the artwork:
Or you could always just go as Van Gogh himself:
Gustav Klimt has an extremely distinct style that would be extremely fun to play with as a costume. Cover yourself in rich colors and golden fabrics and draw designs and patterns on your body to emulate this artist’s most famous style of paintings. His most famous painting (The Kiss) is perfect if you’re looking for a great couples costume!
If make up is your forte than this pop art style would be more than fun to create a costume around. Amaze your friends with your creativity and inventive costume making skills and show off the Benday dot style that Lichtenstein is so famous for!
American Gothic is a classic costume that is perfect for couples and is recognizable to many. You’ll get props on your creativity for a relatively easy costume to pull off.
If you’re a person who loves color and getting really creative with your costumes than Picasso is the artist for you. You can paint your face in fun, cubist and abstract ways and allow yourself creative reign over your costume.
The classic image of The Girl With the Pearl Earring is a painting that many people know and love. Bring this painting to life with a fairly simple costume that will still get you creativity points amongst your friends!
A fairly easy but still inventive costume takes after the works of unknown street artist Banksy. This costume shouldn’t require anything that you might not already have around your house but you’ll still look more creative than all the people that showed up as cats to the Halloween party. There are so many other costumes out there that can be inspired by your favorite artists/works of art so don’t be afraid to get creative with it and create a wholly unique costume that suits your personality!
