Wizard Dress Up

Here at The Wall, we love Halloween! More than that, we love dressing up. We REALLY love dressing up.
We've gotten into costume a few times this past year, making the most of every opportunity. So if you're looking for more ideas for group costumes, we have you covered!
We dressed up in Star Wars gear for May the Fourth Be With You (is anyone else OBSESSED with Star Wars?), wizards and ghosts for Harry Potter's birthday, and the emotions from Inside Out this Halloween. I wasn't kidding when I said that we love to go out in costume!
Our favorite costumes so far are those from Harry's Birthday. And with Halloween coming up, I thought we would share our ideas for dressing like wizards!

Our manager, Ashleigh, was our favorite as Bellatrix Lestrange. Look how much she loves Voldemort!

For her makeup we used a thick white base, with contouring around the nose and cheeks for a more severe look. We also used false eyelashes and red lipstick. She's wearing a black lace dress with a black wizard's cape, and black riding boots. Her wig was little bit tougher. We curled the entire wig using a 1/2 inch wand curler, then teased and tousled each curl for a messier (and more authentic Bellatrix) look.

Devin and Lindsey dressed as Nearly Headless Nick and Moaning Myrtle! Devin wore a white collared shirt paired with a gray striped doublet and tunic, and white tights! We darkened his eyebrows with a brown paste, used a thick white makeup base to make him more ghost-like, and darker makeup was applied to hollow out his cheeks. We then glued on a bushy mustache and goatee, and drew a scar along his neck to finish.

For Lindsey's Moaning Myrtle costume we simply dressed her in black wizard's robes with a Ravenclaw tie, with Coke bottle glasses and a brown wig. Her makeup was done very similarly to Devin's, with a white base and some contouring. Before we pinned her wig on, we combed it out and split the hair into two low ponytails. After the wig was pinned on, we adjusted the ponytails a little for a better fit. And we can't forget the toilet lid around her neck! Her Moaning Myrtle costume wouldn't be the same without that touch.

Let us know what you think of the costumes below!

Happy Halloween, everyone!
