COSTUME: Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
For this costume, I choose Johnny Depp's character Sweeney Todd from Tim Burton's "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street". It's a gruesome movie about revenge, murder, and meat pies...to sum it up. This again can be a unisex costume. You'll need black dress pants (pinstripe if you have them), and white dress shirt, a black vest, a dark printed scarf, fingerless gloves, low boots, a wig (unless your hair is suitable for this style, then just add the white stripe with a white hair spray), and of course a barber's razor. For costume safety, it's better to get a dull toy one. His makeup has dark eyes, cheek bone contouring and a pale complexion. For some added gore, a splattering of fake blood will do you. Warning though, it does stain clothing, so think about that before deciding to ruin your clothing. Make sure you sing when you speak, for added effect.
