Sexy costumes for women easily win costume contests in every bar and club on Halloween night. With many contests that offer thousands of dollars in gift cards and prizes, entering can be lucrative as well as fun. To win, the costume has to have a certain edge that other costumes just don’t have. Here are some tips on how to win best costume.
1. Choose a Unique Sexy Costume Theme
While sexy costumes for women are real winners in costume contests, there is no shortage of them at Halloween. To stand out in the best costume, choose a costume that is relevant to social trends but won’t be overdone, something that combines a sexy costume with a bit of DIY ideas. The more unique the idea and theme, the more the costume will stand out in a large group of contestants.
2. Go as a Duo
Couples costumes are a sure-fire way to stand out in a large group of single entries. They’re fun for you and the significant other as photo opportunities and accessories become endless. It also solidifies you as a group together. Two heads are better than one in costume contests.
3. Accessorize the Costume
Use accessories to give the sexy costume original flare. Add thigh-highs, matching shoes, a petticoat, wigs, gloves, and jewelry when possible. If going with a historical theme like a flapper costume, look into 1920s fashion and find accessories that match, such as cigarette holders and small feathered hats. For pirates and cowboys, weapons are a must. Doing some research into the costume’s theme will also help when choosing accessories.
4. Check Out Hair and Makeup Tutorials
The biggest thing to remember when learning how to win a costume contest is hair and makeup, which can make or break a costume. Wigs can achieve perfect curls for dolls or steampunk costumes or wild colors like pinks and blues for ravers. For Renaissance costumes, long hair is preferable on women, while dark, gothic hair is best for vampire costumes.
For makeup, watch tutorials online. For mermaids, try making shimmering scales with makeup. For zombies, the more gore, the better. Michelle Phan has a great tutorial on princess Barbie makeup and zombie makeup. Check it out in one awesome Halloween makeup tutorial video:
