Shock is identified by her purple dress and green mask. Now, if you happened to have a long sleeve purple dress, that’s great! In my case, I opted to create just a purple tutu and mask to complete the look.

I’ve got something, listen now
This one is real good, you’ll see

We’II send a present to his door
Upon there’ll be a note to read
Now, in the box we’ll wait and hide
Until’ his curiosity
Entices him to look inside
And then we’ll have him
One, two, three

Shock Costume

You will need:

Lock costume (Witch Tutu)

  • Black Elastic (about 2 – 2.5 feet)
  • Black tulle (roughly 4-6 yards, depending on how much volume you want.)
  • Glossy purple fabric (2-3 yards)
  • Needle and thread

Complete the costume with:

  • Witch hat ($3 at Walmart)
  • Lock Mask
  • Black long sleeve shirt
  • Purple costume necklace
  • Black Leggings & heels

Instructions:

1. Start by measuring out the elastic for your waist and sewing it into a circle. Using the needle and thread, start stitching the tulle to the elastic, working your way around the elastic. The more tulle you add, the more volume your skirt will have.

2. I found this gorgeous purple fabric that has a bit of a green sheen to it in the light. Wrap the purple fabric over the top of the tulle and inside the elastic, then stitch into place.  Overlap the fabric every few inches to give it a pleated look.

3. Pair this with a long sleeved black t-shirt, purple costume jewelry, black leggings and heels, and Shock’s mask to complete the look.

Hello!

Hi! I'm Alyce.
Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!

  • One last look at this (insightful? Revealing?) makeup! I actually really loved the eyes by themselves, and they took a good 2 hours themselves. A good challenge in trying to make a flat art of round objects translated on a curved surface! #eyeseeyou #eyeball #eyes #makeupartist #inspiredbyart
Inspire by art by @xsullo
  • Eye see you! I also understand I’m not funny, it’s ok. 😂
This was actually a fun challenge, eyes are really complex and took nearly 2 hours to get them where I was happy. Of all of this, I’m really proud of the detail I was able to get in the irises of each eye, and my blocked eyebrow almost completely disappeared! This actually looks amazing compared to the first time I blocked them out. Yay for progress! #eyeseeyou #eyeball #horrormakeup #horrorart 
Inspired by art from @xsullo
  • I love finding inspiration in new places, and when @bearded_horror shared artwork by @xsullo a week or so ago, I knew I had to give it a try as a makeup! Seriously, such amazing art. I hope I did it justice! Check out their profile to see even more incredible works and compare to the original.
  • After this photoshoot im not sure how to go back to my plain black background... I mean if there isn’t ominous fog in the background, does it really even count?!?! #fogmachine #clownmakeup #scareactress #hauntlife #evietheclown
  • This is my level of excitement right now! The love I have gotten for Evie over the past few days have been amazing, thank you all so much! #clown #clownmakeup #clowns #hauntlife #scareactress
  • That’s not a Wiley grin, that’s me clamping my teeth together so I stopped chattering. This spring was BRUTAL in SD, and it was in the 30s when we shot this in an unheated parking garage. #clowningaround #clownmakeup #scareactor #scareactress #hauntlife
  • Evie is probably my favorite full-costume character I’ve created to date. It’s so fun to think a practice look I made for haunt last year will be a fully fledged character come haunt season next year! Also, I NEED these light bars @jibclimmer used in this shoot. If anyone has a few hundred dollars to donate to the cause just let me know. 😉 #clown #clownmakeup #hauntedhouse #hauntlife #makeupartist
  • If only @grave_digger_the_clown would learn to share, Evie wouldn’t have to steal his shovel! #justclowningaround #clown #clownmakeup #hauntlife photography credit goes to the incredibly talented @jibclimmer
  • Hey guys! It’s been a hell of last few months, but trust me, I’ve been busy! I’d like to introduce my newest character, Evie the Clown! Thanks so much to @jibclimmer for these incredible photos... more to come very shortly. #clown #clownmakeup #hauntlife
