Dexter and his Victim
|Costume type:||Costumes for Couples|
This homemade costume for couples entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Sharon, the 'Dexter and his Victim' costume creator:
We wanted to do something different and we are obsessed with the Showtime series Dexter! It's about a serial killer who wraps his victims in saran wrap and stabs them in the heart. He then takes a blood sample from their cheek to keep as a souvenir. So my boyfriend was Dexter and I was his unfortunate victim.
We used saran wrap, masking tape, fake knife, black fabric for the apron, and homemade blood from corn starch, flour, water, and food coloring. I wrapped the saran wrap around me and used some tape to keep it in place. Then mixed the ingredients to make fake blood and poured it around my heart area. I then cut the fake knife in half and used more tape and saran wrap to keep it in place. I cut black fabric and tied it in the form of an apron.
Everyone loved it! Even people who didn't watch the show thought it was very unique and creative. Halloween is my favorite holiday. It's a day when everyone lets their creativity run wild and that's exactly how I feel about this costume. It's not the typical devil and angel, or pirate that is seen time and time again. No one else had our costumes last night and I have yet to see anyone dress up like Dexter for Halloween. We put a lot of thought into our costume and I'm so happy with how it turned out. I hope the judges feel the same!
