Zombie Conventions To Die For!

Friday, July 11th, 2014

Good news for zombie fans this year as many of the horror and sci-fi conventions are featuring a Walking Dead reunion theme with past and present actors from the show ranging from the top billers to the men and women who regularly feature as various different zombies. There are plenty of other attractions to get excited about as well including many other celebrity guests, special effects workshops and costume competitions.

MonsterCon – Greenville, SC (July 18-20)

The largest three day multi-fandom and pop culture convention in South Carolina features plenty of celebrity guests but is far more than just an opportunity to get some autographs. MonsterCon will have a special effects workshop with RJ Haddy from SyFy’s FaceOff, a film festival as well as a costume contest. The competition will be pretty stiff so if you want to stand a chance then you better get some zombie contact lenses to perfect your costume. There are plenty of great tutorials online on how to make a great zombie costume as well.

However, if it’s your first cos-play attempt then don’t be intimidated by all the cos-play experts you will run into. MonsterCon welcomes the veterans and the newbies equally and there will even be a special event on the first day to help new cos-players and show them that absolutely anyone can take part in this awesome hobby.

Of course, don’t spend so long sorting out your costume that you miss the special Behind the Scenes of The Walking Dead Q & A with plenty of cast members including several who play multiple different zombies, such as Sonya Thompson (who was also in Zombieland) and Michael Koske who has played more zombies on the show than anyone else. You’ll also get to see Savana Jade Wehunt who played The Governor’s daughter Penny.

Monster-Mania Con – Cherry Hill, NJ (August 15-17)

The Crowne Plaza Hotel plays host to the semi-annual horror film and memorabilia Monster-Mania convention this year, which will include a guest panel of Walking Dead stars including Lawrence Gilliard Jr (also of The Wire), Alanna Masterson (Tara) and Steven Yeun who plays everybody’s favorite geek, Glenn.

There are plenty of non-zombie guests to get excited about too, including fan convention stalwarts and original Batman and Robin, Adam West and Burt Ward. You will also get to see the T-1000 in the flesh as Robert Patrick makes an appearance along with actors James Remar, Kenny Johnson and Verne Troyer.

You can also meet wrestling legend and occasional action movie star Rowdy Roddy Piper, and look out for Bill Moseley who played Otis in Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects.

Scare-A-Con – Verona, NY (September 12-14)

One of the best horror and sci-fi fan conventions of the Northeast incorporates a film festival, a special film makers’ meet and mix gathering, their own awards ceremony and a psychic fair. There are plenty of themed parties as well including Saturday 13th’s ‘Zombie Massacre-ade Costume Party’ which will feature live entertainment.

There are loads of celebrity and horror-themed guests booked for Scare-A-Con over their three days at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino, including two of the actors who have portrayed the iconic Leatherface in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre film franchise, C. Thomas Howell and the always awesome Chris Sarandon – he of original Fright Night and The Princess Bride fame. Plus gentlemen of a certain age who were falling in love with Baywatch babes long before Pamela Anderson arrived on the scene will be pleased to note an appearance by Erika Eleniak.

Zombie fans are in for a celebrity treat as well as Scare-A-Con will feature both Lew Temple and Vincent Ward who played Axel and Oscar on The Walking Dead, plus you will also get to see Eugene Clark who played the legendary zombie Big Daddy in George A. Romero’s Land of the Dead.

Walker Stalker Con – Atlanta, GA (October 17-19)

This convention is the pick of the bunch for Walking Dead fans, and what better place to have it than in Atlanta. Walker Stalker has the most cast members and crew attending as guests, including currently alive characters and those who have long since been eaten by the undead and/or shot by their friends and/or family.

Jon Bernthal and Sarah Wayne Callies will be in attendance alongside their equally perished pals Michael Rooker and Laurie Holden. Among the actors portraying currently alive characters are the increasingly awesome Chad Coleman (Tyrese) and Josh McDermit (Eugene). Melissa McBride has also recently been added to the guest list and there may be more additions yet. Also keep your eyes open for the actors who played Michonne’s pet zombies, though they’ll probably have their arms and bottom jaws attached so you’ll need a keen eye.

Greg Nicotero and Jay Bonansinga will also be answering questions and more than likely revealing little tidbits about the next season. And who knows, attend in an awesome zombie costume and you just might get noticed by the show’s bosses and hired to eat somebody’s face before taking a hammer to the head!

Zombie Walks

If conventions aren’t really your thing but you’d still love to zombie-up with like minded folks then you need to get involved with the zombie walk phenomenon. Movements like the Crawl of the Dead have swept across America and have gone worldwide with people from all walks of life dressing up in their best zombie costumes and coming together to create their own wandering horde of the undead.

There are so many nowadays that I won’t simply pick one and publicize that, but there are plenty of websites which document and advertise up coming zombie walks and you should be able to find one near you. And if you can’t then you can simply organize one yourself!

Some of these zombie walks even have competitions for the best costume, so you’ll want to do a bit more than splash some fake blood on your face and wear a torn t-shirt. Get some zombie costume advice from some of the many online tutorials (there are also plenty posted on our blog) and perfect your costume with something like these white contact lenses to give yourself the creepiest appearance possible. Then just get out there and help bring the zombie apocalypse down upon your own home town, all the while screaming BRAAAAAAAAIIIIINNS!

How to Achieve the Ultimate Vampire Look

Monday, June 9th, 2014

It’s so easy to create an awesome vampire costume that I’m surprised more of us don’t go about our daily lives dressed as the immortally cool horror icons. Even if we do have sensible jobs that prevent us acting out our fantasies every day, there’s no excuse when it’s comes to costume parties. The best thing about dressing as a vampire is you can pretty much wear whatever clothes you fancy as it’s all about your face. Though it is indeed a good idea to dress appropriately according to the type of vampire you are, so before anything else you need to decide what kind of vampire you want to dress up as.

Choosing Your Vampire

Take some time to decide what kind of vampire you want to be as there are quite a few different styles out there to draw inspiration from. Do you want to be all teeth and crazy eyes like the vampires from TV’s Supernatural, or a sparkly Edward Cullen? You could become a vintage vampire by recreating Christopher Lee’s Dracula from the English Hammer Horror franchise of the 1960s, or maybe mimic Gary Oldman’s version from the more modern rendition of Bram Stoker’s classic.

And don’t forget the Interview With A Vampire characters, excellently played by Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise; although dressing up as one of those involves only about 5% vampire costume and a good 95% of old fashioned dandy. One of the easiest things to do is to create your very own vampire style, taking a little inspiration from a few of the bloodsucking characters that have gone before.

Vampire Make-Up 1

Transform Yourself Into A Vampire

Easy Vampire Make-up Effects

Follow this five-step guide to turn yourself into an awesome vampire for relatively little cost. You’ll need access to some make-up of course, though most of what you’ll need will be in the average lady’s make-up bag, while anything not there won’t be expensive.

1. Create a pale face base using the lightest shade of foundation you can find. Theatrical face paint can work too, but it tends to be smeary and will look very obvious and more comedic than sexy or threatening. It’s a good idea to moisturize your face before applying the make-up as well as otherwise it can become caked when too dry. Be sure to apply the make-up to your neck and any exposed chest area as well so it all matches up, then dust a light amount of baby powder to reinforce the slightly decaying but still sexy skin look.

2. To give you a slightly gaunt and ghoulish appearance, you’ll need to apply some dark eye shadow underneath your eyes and on your upper eyelid, either grey or you can experiment with some purple or violet tones, Don’t go too crazy with this unless you really know what you’re doing as it’s better to under-do it then overdo it.

3. Break out the eyeliner now to accentuate your eyes and your lips. Try it first on just the upper eyelid as you will probably find this is enough. Now use the eyeliner to outline your lips, going heavy if you are wearing red lipstick or light if you aren’t wearing any. Another option is to wear black lipstick if you can find some or are willing to buy it.

4. Now your make-up is almost complete barring a few optional effects, it’s time to choose what crazy color eyes your own personal vampire has. This is an important step as the type of color contact lenses you choose can determine how your vampire is interpreted. Dark blood red eyes are a sexily subtle touch, while bright yellow contacts have a fiercer edge to them. You can always go ghostly with some pure white contacts or get some Cat Eye contact lenses to give you that beastly reptilian look.

5. The last step is about the optional effects you can add to finish the vampire look off nicely. A little bit of blood trickling from the corner of your mouth can look really cool, and you can make your own by mixing a little corn syrup with red food coloring, adding a tiny dash of blue food coloring to give the fake blood a realistic appearance. You can also add a couple of fang marks on your neck, or even apply some sparkly skin lotion or shimmer powder to recreate the sparkly vampires of the Twilight films.

Homemade Vampire Fangs

I don’t recommend buying fake fangs from a costume shop as you’ll probably only wear them once when you first arrive at the party and then you’ll have to take them out to talk to people. If you really want some fangs for your first appearance though, you can try cutting the head off of a plastic fork and removing the inner prongs, then inserting the remainder of the head with the two outer prongs under your top lip.

Other options for fake fangs include using fake fingernails or making an entire row of teeth out of the base of a Styrofoam cup. If you get the make-up and the vampire contact lenses right though, people will be too impressed by the rest of your costume to worry about where your fangs are. It’s not like you plan on biting anyone anyway, right? Right?

How to Achieve the Ultimate Avatar Look

Friday, June 6th, 2014

When Avatar arrived on the silver screen in 2009 it was a huge hit in the cinema, dubbed as the “greatest adventure of all time.” The incredibly realistic animation in the film meant people around the world went crazy, feverishly replicating the movie’s characters. If you fancy going down the little less conventional route at a Halloween or fancy dress party, dressing up as an Avatar is guaranteed to be well-received. So how exactly can you replicate James Cameron’s Avatar with authenticity and depth?

Neytiri Avatar Halloween Tutorial

Neytiri, princess of the Omaticaya clan and second-born daughter of Eytukan and Mo’at, is one of the most recognizable characters of Avatar. This informative tutorial describes how you can look like Neytiri in a few simple steps.

The video begins by advising watchers to braid their hair, put yellow contact lenses in and put on foundation. You then paint your face a shade of bright blue, draw in the infamous avatar eyebrows and ‘re-create’ your eyes with ample black eye shadow. Black stripes are then drawn on the forehead and cheeks, with white dots following the stripes. You then put fake eyelashes on the top and bottom lids to augment those alluring Avatar eyes.

The video then advises to cut out the ears from hard paper, color them the same shade of blue with black stripes and stick them in your hair with a hair pin. Then put feathers on your ears with another hair pin. And there you have it a wonderfully authentic and cost-effective Neytiri Avatar look.

Avatar Contact Lenses

Of course Neytiri would not be Neytiri without her wild, yellow eyes. You too can have eyes this invitingly golden by wearing a pair of Avatar Contact Lenses. Escape to Pandora with these stunning yellow contacts, which will bring a new dimension to an Avatar costume. Whether it’s the classic movie look you aspire or a more subtle Avatar glare, these lenses are available in brighter colors and more natural designs, ensuring you can achieve your desired Avatar look with ease.

DIY Avatar Costume for Under $20

Look like an Avatar for less than $20! All you’ll need for this Avatar costume is are brown leggings or a brown bikini bottom, a brown t-shirt, tank top, bikini top, or fabric, chunky necklaces and bracelets, and a waist-length black wig. For the make up you’ll need cutips, black eyeshadow, light blue and dark blue eye shadow (or face paints), white face cream and large amounts of blue body paint. As you can imagine, this Avatar costume technique involves plenty of rubbing blue eye shadow or face paint into your face and body. For full instructions visit and let the fun commence!

How to Achieve the Ultimate Zombie Look

Monday, May 5th, 2014

Whether it’s for Halloween, to a fancy dress party, for a part in a play, or perhaps as a dare, going out dressed like a zombie can be a lot of fun. In fact out of all the deadly creatures of the night dressing like a zombie is one of the most terrifyingly theatrical. There’s plenty of accessories at hand to help you perfect your zombie look, the trick is knowing about them. Take a look at the following ways to achieve a zombie- semblance that would make Ash in the Evil Dead look like Cinderella.

Wear Plenty of Make Up

You  won’t look like a zombie unless you have deathly white or gray skin, period. The quickest route to a pallor complexion is through ample use of make up.

  1. Apply the lightest shade of foundation or concealer you can find to your entire neck and face. Go over the foundation with a generous application of baby powder to give you a real deathly look.
  2. Brush generous amounts of black, gray, green or even purple eye shadow to your eye sockets and cheek bones in order to accent the sunken areas of your face. Make it look as if your eye sockets have shrunken to almost non-existence by applying darker make up towards the corners of your eyes.
  3. Create a dramatic color contrast by using a subtle amount of red lipstick. Apply this’fake blood’ to your lips, or even down your cheeks as if blood is dripping from your eyes.
  4. For the ultimate zombie make up tutorial, check out this video below on YouTube. With some tissue paper, fake blood, liquid latex and colored contact lenses, you can go from looking like Barbie to looking like a zombie who’s been dead for the last 50 years in less than 11 minutes!

Choosing The Perfect Contact Lenses

When it comes to replicating the most horrifying of characters don’t underestimate the power of contact lenses. Let’s be honest when did you last see a zombie with green, blue, brown or other ‘conventional’ eye colors? To craft an authentic zombie look you’ll need a pair of pale zombie contact lenses. Such colored lenses will transform your look creating a spooky, dead-like and dramatic effect which will definitely make you stand out from the crowd.

Don’t Neglect the Costume

Now for the costume. You’ll need to decide what type of zombie you want to be. For example, school girl zombies tend to work well with their ripped shirt, blood-stained knee-length socks and back combed bunches generating a terrifying look. Zombie nurses are another costume not to be reckoned with, just make sure the nurse’s uniform has plenty of blood splattered over it and your looking perilously menacing with a blood-tipped syringe in your hand. Though we have to admit, the best part of dressing like a zombie is you get to pass out anywhere!

The Scariest Movies Achieved Through Contacts

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

They say terror can be seen in the eyes. Terror can also be crafted through the eyes, by means of colored contact lenses. Asides good acting, horror movies and videos rely on lavish theatrical costumes to help create terrifying characters and nail-biting scenes. We only have to think back to Michael Jackson’s Thriller video, when flamboyant yet scarily realistic costumes augmented the thrilling authenticity of the video out of sight. Colored contact lenses are increasingly becoming an almost imperative accessory in a horror movie’s attire. Take a look at the following four scariest movies achieved through colored contacts.

Interview With A Vampire

Interview With A Vampire

When Interview With A Vampire arrived at the big screen in 1994, the Gothic vampire horror helped secure the careers of Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise forevermore. It has to be said that as well as the fantastic acting and utterly unique script, Brad Pitt’s unmistakable eyes helped propel the movie to make history in terms of being an epic horror thriller. The vampire’s glowing yellow eyes set against a gaunt face of pasty makeup, helped craft a really terrifying look, thrilling audiences around the world.

The Exorcist

The Exorcist

While colored contact lenses have really taken off in popularity in recent years, the theatrical enhancing capabilities of these accessories have been exploited by horror movie directors for quite some time. One of the most striking early examples of colored lenses in movies was in The Exorcist. A pair of deathly gray contacts really helped transform the sweet little girl Regan into an unnerving possessed puppet of the devil.

An American Werewolf in London

An American Werewolf in London

The early penchant for implementing colored contacts into the attire of horror films continued into the 1980s. In 1981 An American Werewolf in London scared and amused audiences with its atmospheric plot, setting and costumes. In fact so acclaimed did this widely popular movie’s special effects become that American special effects artist Rick Baker won an Academy Award for the revolutionary special effects make up for American Werewolf in London. The spellbinding costumes in the movie included the werewolf wearing devilish yellow eyes to enhance the creature’s horrifying look.

The Evil Dead

The Evil Dead

Based on a groups of friends unwittingly summoning up demons living in nearby woods, The Evil Dead almost turned the blood cold of everyone who watched it as it dished out a level of gore that had been rarely seen in movie theaters before. The costumes and makeup of these utterly grotesque zombies left little to the imagination. Once again, a pivotal feature of the movie’s makeup were the eyes of these creatures of the night. The pale zombie lenses augmented an authentic deceased look and it is hardly surprising The Evil Dead zombie costumes have been recreated ever since. In 2013 a modern version of The Evil Dead arrived in cinemas and was touted as the “most terrifying film you will ever experience” – With those horrifically haunting eyes, who are we to argue?

Get the Dangerous Look with Biohazard Contact Lenses

Friday, February 7th, 2014

Sometimes, highlighting a certain color or changing the color of our eyes completely just doesn’t quite cut it. Sure, switching from brown to blue eyes or vice versa might be fine for a evening out at a restaurant or maybe even an evening in having a bit of fun with your partner, but when your destination is a rockin’ party that might just go down in legend among your friends, that’s when you need to push the boat out and go for something a little more memorable.

Create the Perfect Halloween Costume

That’s where Biohazard Contact Lenses come in. They feature various representations of the Toxic Waste symbol and are the perfect contact lenses for a rave that make your eyes extra special, attracting all the right attention and giving you the appearance of the ultimate raver. A couple of glow-sticks might be enough for some people, but nobody’s going to remember them unless they get naked and dance around on a table before falling off, cracking their head on the floor and getting stretchered off to A & E. You won’t need to get naked to attract attention if you wear Biohazard party contact lenses, though by all means go ahead and get naked anyway. I won’t stop you!

Toxic Waste Costume

Glowing Biohazard Lenses

The black and yellow color scheme has long been associated with hazardous warning signs and thus is considered extremely cool as a rave accessory and perfect for some hard partying. You can even raise the bar by choosing to buy Biohazard UV contact lenses which will glow under UV light. The i-Glow varieties still look awesome under normal light but will shine spectacularly under black light.

Biohazard contact lenses can also be incorporated into various costumes for fancy dress parties or cos-play. If it’s a superhero themed party, then you can guarantee there’ll be a whole host of Batmans and Supermans, so why not be original and go retro with a Toxic Avenger outfit. A bit of creativity with regards your clothes and headwear will give you his bulging green skin appearance, or simply pick up a rubber mask of his face. Then just wear these Toxic Waste Halloween Contact Lenses so people don’t mistake you for a leprous Incredible Hulk.

Biohazard Cosplay

You could even make an entire costume out of the whole hazardous warning motif by decking yourself out in yellow and black colors. Black trousers with a yellow top with the Biohazard or Toxic Waste symbol marked out in black would look absolutely awesome if worn with some face-paint in the design of one of the hazardous warning symbols and colored contact lenses to match. Alternatively, construct a barrel to wear with warning signs on it and have some bright green material tumbling out of the top. Accompany either outfit with some black boots and black gloves and you’ll be able to lay claim to the title of the most dangerous person at the party. One thing is for certain when you buy Biohazard contact lenses, you’re going to get noticed and nobody’s going to forget you. And isn’t that what dressing up for a party is all about?

Best Colored Contact Lenses for Men

Jude Law - natural blue eyes

Jude Law – natural blue eyes

It’s not just women who like to dress outrageously glitzy from time to time as men can also get the urge to pull out all the stops with a daringly flamboyant outfit from time to time. For example, they might be going to a costume party, a Halloween parade or perhaps want to dress to impress on a first date. Whatever the reason, colored contacts can be an equally as effective accessory to put the ‘icing on the cake’ of an impressive outfit for men, as they are for women. If you are a guy looking to complement a great party costume or simply want to augment your looks on a hot date, take a look at some of the best coloured contact lenses for men.

Blue Contacts for that First Date

Although we might not like to admit it, looks are important on first dates. Alongside your date’s charming personality (we hope so), men and women want to be physically attracted to their date. This is when colored contact lenses could come in handy. If you’ve not been blessed with stunning blue eyes like Brad Pitt or Jude Law you could always cheat as a means of captivating your date. Put in a pair of spectacular blue contact lenses before the date and you’re lucky lady friend won’t have eyes for anyone else.

Terminator Contact Lenses

The Terminator

Want to impress the girls with your Arnie-like muscles by dressing as The Terminator to a fancy dress party? Well enhance the costume further by wearing a pair Terminator Contact Lenses. With the words ‘The Terminator’ around the top and bottom of the lens, these silver contacts celebrate the iconic sci-fi movie in style.

Cannabis Contact Lenses

If you’re heading to a party or perhaps a festival with a hippy kind of vibe, a man wearing a pair of cannabis contact lenses is likely to be met with approval. For example, these cool Cannabis Leaf Contact Lenses, which are predominantly white but have a crisp black cannabis leaf inscribed on them, will definitely get you noticed at a party, festival or any kind of event with a bohemian, carefree atmosphere.

Zombie Contacts

Zombie Contact Lenses

Zombie Contact Lenses

We have to admit that with a myriad of witch, vampire, she-devil and naughty nurse costumes on the market, it’s quite a bit easier for women to dress up for a Halloween party than men. That’s not to say men can’t look as frighteningly fantastic as women to such occasions.

Attending a Halloween party as a zombie is a sure-fire way to get noticed and create a stir at such an event. But if you want to go that bit further, men should put in a pair of Zombie Contact Lenses, for a truly freaky look.

Time to Party Hobbit Style

Monday, December 23rd, 2013


Did you ever find yourself acting very differently at a costume party? Interesting isn’t it how putting on a costume,mask ,war paint or even bright colored contact lenses turns people into someone else, with a bit of help from a tipple or two. Not only is it good fun but it should be classed as therapy. Confidence floods through veins and the Average Joe becomes an uninhibited party animal.

The renewed interest on the big screen in J.R.R.Tolkien and his epic fantasy The Lord of the Rings, and now The Hobbit, which was compulsory reading for every student at one time or another, has led to an interest in a whole series of characters, Frodo, Bilbo, Sam, Gandalf and not to forget poor old Gollum, amongst many others.

It’s a hot topic at the moment so what better way to dress up and act out a fantasy than as a Hobbit, Dwarf, Troll or Elf?

The face is always the point of visual contact, Elijah Wood who played Frodo has naturally large eyes, and it’s difficult to tell if he has blue contacts in or not, but they are powerful enough to attract anyone’s attention. (Elijah Wood Photo)

Azog the Defiler

However, Orc chieftain and all-round bad egg, Azog the Defiler, played by Manu Bennet, has a frightening pair of peepers. Certainly a great character to impersonate with a fake six pack (unless, of course, you have the real thing) and a stunning pair of red cat eye lenses.

Here are a couple of little tips about your costume. Firstly consider your stature; mind you there are no rules to this game, so there’s no reason why you can’t have a tall Hobbit or a diminutive Troll. Cut your old trousers at the knees – don’t worry about frayed ends – and apply spirit gum to your toes (but not superglue!) and stick two pieces of shaggy carpet on them. Definitely effective – at least you will have warm feet!

Still stuck for ideas? Here are some fan-tastic fan favorite character ideas for your fancy dress Hobbit party:

  • Evangeline Lilly, who appears as elf, Turiel, sports very sexy contacts and a rather Spock-like pair of ears, which looked good on her anyway.
  • In the eye department the bad guys definitely have it over the Dwarves and Elves, who seem to rely more on exquisite eyebrows or plaited beards and bulbous noses.
  • Gollum, played by Antony Serkis, displays beautiful mix of emotions – greed, fear, rage and sadness – in those extraordinary eyes. Take a look at these bloodshot contact lenses and perhaps turn yourself into Gollum, complete with tortured soul.
  • Smaug the dragon would be one heck of a party outfit. Adding a tail, claws, and sharp teeth may prove a little bit of a headache, but with a frightening pair of dragon lenses your look is half way there.
  • So it’s up to you, do you fancy being an Elf, all noble and elegant and not a bad shot with a bow and arrow, or a childlike Hobbit with an average height of three foot six inches? Why not have your own Hobbit themed events, but just watch out you may end up with a room full of lookalike Bilbo Baggins unless you organize it well. There is a lot of scope for invention, so take a leaf out of the serious fans of the films, who turned up at premiers in costumes worthy of any Props department.

    Best Celebrity Halloween Costumes

    Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

    Celebrities have a lot more time and money on their hands than the rest of us, so when it comes to dressing up time, we expect a lot more from them than we do ourselves and our mere mortal friends. Luckily, the vast majority of them don’t let us down and there have been some absolutely awesome costumes and outfits spotted at some of the big celebrity Halloween gatherings.

    The charity UNICEF recently held a Halloween Bash where there were plenty of celebrities lining up to be snapped in their costumes. Some of the best looking outfits of 2013′s Halloween season have often be those commemorating Mexico’s Day of the Dead festival, and fashion designer Patrick Cox showed his nous by teaming a stylish Mexican-themed outfit with some truly terrific face paint.

    The Best Halloween Costumes

    British pop singer Lily Allen went for a more eye-catching outfit at the same event and probably spent a little bit more on the body paint. With the right accessories you can really make a fun alien costume come to life as Lily has with her head-band antennae. You could even take it to the next level with some cool Green Contact Lenses to really make yourself stand out (you know, if being painted bright green isn’t enough).

    Mike Meldman’s Casamigos Halloween party in Beverley Hills usually attracts plenty of stars dressing up for the spooky night’s entertainment. My favorite of the attendees this year has to be supermodel Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber teaming up to dress as infamous havoc-wreaking rockers Axl Rose and Slash. They hilariously nailed the classic 1980s image of the Guns ‘N Roses musicians perfectly.

    Another rocker Ozzy’s famous daughter Kelly Osbourne attended Glee actor and entertainer Adam Lambert’s party in West Hollywood nightclub Bootsy Bellows dressed as the Stephen King horror heroine Carrie. If you get the right liquid to use as blood (corn syrup can be perfect) then this can be a really easy but awesome outfit to shock and impress your pals with.

    Have You Chosen Next Year’s Halloween Costume?

    Adam Lambert wasn’t about to be upstaged at his own party though. Focusing his costume on his head and face, he used some theatrical make-up, some Devil Eyes Contact Lenses and an awesome pair of horns to impersonate Beelzebub himself. This kind of outfit can often be the best at a party and yet really he’s just wearing ordinary clothes (barring the shoulder studs). Using make-up and colored contact lenses is often the way to go for a simple but still amazing costume.

    Jonathan Ross, the British TV host known for his inability to pronounce his Rs, is also well known for throwing an awesome celebrity-packed Halloween party every year. Supermodel Kate Moss and her husband Jamie Hince, front-man of indie rockers The Kills, got into the Mexican Day of the Dead mood as well with their awesome Mexican and Spanish-themed outfits finished off with some clever skull face paint. This kind of thing really was the outfit of choice for the cool kids this year.

    Hit-Girl Chloë Moretz also showed us how it’s done at the same party with this awesome combination of face paint, Gothic costume and outrageous hair accessories. It’s not that surprising that she went for something a bit fancier and less horrible, as having recently starred in the remake of Carrie she was probably getting a little tired of being covered in blood.

    The best celebrity costume of this year’s Halloween party season though is a tie, shared equally between British actor Simon Pegg (Scotty from the rebooted Star Trek franchise) and honorary American Hugh Laurie, better known as the grumpy genius Dr House. All that limping practice must have really paid off when he turned up in this awesome zombie outfit, with both he and Pegg making good use of White Contact Lenses to give them that eerie dead-eyed stare.

    Still, I’m not sure if the fantastic zombie looks will ever be enough to dethrone the reigning champion of celebrity costumes, the Skinned Body outfit worn by Heidi Klum in 2011. You could probably argue that Lady Gaga has come close to besting Klum’s skinless wonder on several occasions, but to be honest, this is meant to be about costumes and Gaga’s insane outfits are just her normal clothes. Klum’s costume consisted of a body suit and matching face paint, finished off with some blood Red Contact Lenses. It’s crazy enough to look at her from a distance, but when it gets more realistic the close you get, you know you have one of the best Halloween costumes ever created. You can find cheap Halloween costumes online or on the high street to replicate these awesome celebrity costumes.
