I went with Hitchcock’s Psycho for my Halloween Costume this year.
The costume is going to be great. I am having a party at my house Saturday night and for the party, my beau and I are going to do Psycho. And the whole house is in on the costume.
I will be Janet Leigh, which makes me wish I still had my blonde hair, but oh well. A blonde wig will have to do. I picked up one of these short marilyn wigs and will get the hair wet and gel so it looks wet all night.
I ordered a unitard in nude and will put slash marks on it. And am adding a white towel for modesty with BM embroidered on it for Bates Motel. And then beau will be wearing a granny wig and dress and carry a plastic knife. I haven’t actually talked to him about that yet. It better be plastic. There will be kids at this party.
Now for the props! The bathroom that everyone uses will have this shower curtain in the tub, probably only half hanging, since Janet Leigh pulls it off the rod as she dies her untimely death. And beau, who has mad technical skills, is going to create a sound machine that makes the screeching murder scene noise every time someone passes through the bathroom door.
And to top it off, Baby, my ’56 Buick Special, gets to get in on the action. She is a very similar body style to the Ford Janet Leigh drives in the movie, so we are going to park her out front with the trunk popped. In the trunk I am going to put my vintage suitcase and a rolled up newspaper hanging out a little. Maybe I will even try to get some fake money to have laying out like the money she stole and hid in the newspaper.
I always like to know what interesting ideas people get for Halloween costumes. Leave me a post with your costume ideas!
