At Halloween time, everyone wants a fun and unique costume. During this time, many people are throwing parties and attending festivities. Often, there are costume contests too. Having a good costume can make you the life of the party and can help you to win awesome prizes. No one wants to have a boring or lame costume. Everyone is tired of witches, ghosts, and Scream killers. A good idea for this upcoming Halloween season is to dress as Casey Anthony. Finding clothes for this costume is easy; it is the mask that is harder to get a hold of.
If you do decide to dress up as Casey Anthony, you will need to be prepared for others to be offended by your costume choice. Since she is thought to be guilty, by many people, for killing her daughter, this is a risky costume to wear. Some people will find it funny, while others may not. You should be ready to explain your choice of costume to those who may question your taste.
The first part of the costume you’ll need is the clothes. You want the costume to look as authentic as possible. Thrift shops are a popular place to find Halloween costumes. For a Casey Anthony look, you will need to dress as white trash as possible. You could wear a skimpy tank top with your bra showing and denim cut-offs. Or, you could wear something that resembles an American flag like she once did. There are many photos of her in this attire online.
If you don’t naturally have dark brown hair then you will need to either dye your hair or buy a wig. You can buy or rent a wig from either a party store or a costume shop. If you chose to dye your hair, make sure to use dye that isn’t permanent. Make sure not to skip this step because it is a crucial part to the look of this costume.
The next thing you will need to buy is a Casey Anthony mask. These are somewhat hard to find, but if you look around, one can be found. You also need to be willing to spend a lot of money because the masks are expensive. The best place to look for a mask is on eBay.com. The auction website has several masks up for bid ranging from $10-$500. Since there is such a range for prices, it is best to do some research before buying one or placing a bid.
In addition to the items mentioned above, you can also add accessories to the costume. One idea is to carry a roll of duct tape with you. This will add to the overall look of the costume. Another idea is to carry a suitcase because her daughter was found in one. This might be taking the costume too far, but it would be a good idea if you are entering a costume contest. Make sure to get all of the details right and you will have the best costume at Halloween.
To be honest a Nancy Grace mask would probably scare the neighborhood kids more than Casey Anthony. A fun group dress-up would be for one person to wear Grace and the other to wear the accused mother.
