How to Create a Dark Willow Costume For Halloween

Halloween Costume Idea: Dark Willow

The costume: Dark Willow
It's been 10 years since Dark Willow, the world's most powerful (and seriously P.O.-ed) witch, appeared on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but this Halloween costume is just as freaky now as it was then. It's a win-win choice from the Buffyverse, since fellow fans will get the costume immediately, and everyone else will just be impressed by your spooky look.

Hair and makeup: The key to this costume is black hair (if you need to, grab a wig!) and visible veins. Start by applying matte foundation in a shade lighter than your own skin tone. Next, use a damp eyeliner brush to draw on dark purple or black gel eyeliner as "veins." Fill in brows with black pencil or powder. Apply a dark red matte lipstick, then dab a bit of concealer on lips for a spookier look.

What to wear: Black, naturally. A fitted blazer and sleek black pants are very makeover-of-the-damned.

Take it to the next level: Go all out with black contacts, and you'll soon be one truck-driving magic mama.

As long as those costume contacts been out, I couldn't never bring myself to even look at the person too long. Looks like their soul has been eaten or something. *shudders*
