Michael Myers, the murderous star of the "Halloween" movie franchise, is a perfect Halloween costume. His face is all white, and there's nothing fancy about his outfit. Use a Myers photo as a guide, but if the face, hair and basic uniform are right, trick-or-treaters should be able to tell who you are.
Things You'll Need
- Navy mechanics suit
- Heavy work boots
- Fake rubber knife
Apply some stains to the mechanic's suit. Myers is usually seen in this suit, and the stains represent blood. Keep the knife in a pocket. Walk around in the boots to ensure you can wear them comfortably.
Use makeup to paint your face white. If you prefer to stay hidden behind a mask, paint any plain mask white.
Fix your own brown hair to stand upright. If you do not have wiry brown hair, wear a wig.
Perfect his body language. Michael doesn't talk. Tilt your head slowly to one side when someone is talking to you. Walk stiffly; Michael is never loose and never runs.
Tips & Warnings
- For special effects, occasionally play the "Halloween" theme song. Keep it queued up on a tape recorder hidden in a pocket of the jumpsuit.
