Be Like Mike: Halloween 2018 Edition

With Oct. 31 right around the corner, we’re sitting on our bloodstained little hands NOT to include any spoilers in this quick-‘n-dirty Michael Myers costume tutorial. (We’re not THAT mean.)

Instead, we’ll take what you probably already know, even if you haven’t caught the Halloween 2018 release yet. We’ve got you, boo! Here’s how to grab your own killer gear so you can look just like the 2018 version of Mike.

Enjoy…and stay scary!

The Mask

You’re just not Mike without the mask. Buy the officially licensed one if you’re short on time.

Otherwise, get a standard Halloween makeup kit or use makeup you already have (you may not have the palest colors; we recommend Dollar Tree). Here’s an incredibly cool tutorial:

 

The Coveralls

These are iconic too. They’re a bit cooler-looking for the new movie, partially because they’re more weathered and realistic.

Grab any old pair of work coveralls from your local Goodwill or thrift shop; if they don’t have front chest pockets, draw these on with dark-blue magic marker. (Yes, really. In the dark, it makes one cool effect.)

Turn the collar up in the back and you’re done.

Coveralls look TOO good? Here’s How to Weather Them:

Now That’s a Knife!

Make your own quickie knife with the tutorial below, or simply cut out cardboard and cover it with aluminum foil. CAREFUL: don’t crinkle the foil too much. You want it smooth and super-shiny.

That’s it, folks – so easy! Now grab a trick-or-treat bag and start collecting body parts…err, candy. But first, here’s the trailer we promised you. Enjoy…and have a killer Halloween!
