Carrie is one of the most iconic horror films ever made and by far one of the easiest looks to recreate. A quick Pinterest search will give you dozens of ideas to achieve this classic. It’s one of those costumes that people just know regardless if they have seen the movie or not. When coming up with my list of 31 costumes for the month, it was the first one I wrote down.
If you want to go full out with this recreation, I highly suggest shooing outdoors, on a throw-away plastic tarp and near a hose. The fake blood is sticky, itchy and not meant to be around people at a costume party or bar. For those looking to take this costume on the town then I would use fabric paint or makeup that doesn’t smear (Ben Nye makes great fake blood makeup). I got the cheapest wig I could find ($9) because I knew I would be tossing it in the trash after the photos were taken. Same with the dress, I found a really inexpensive pink slip dress on Shein for $12 that I threw out after as well. I didn’t want my washing machine to be stained red and I don’t even think the dye would of come out of the dress anyway. Here is the fake blood recipe I used. I doubled the batch and wound up using all of it. You can also buy fake blood on Amazon and at Halloween stores. I’ve linked everything I used at the bottom of the post 🙂
