Tim Burton is responsible for creating some of the best Halloween characters out there, and while many of them aren’t really considered sexy, you can shake his own ideas up a bit by turning some of his best male Halloween characters into your own unique sexy Halloween costume ideas. Characters like Beetlejuice, Jack Skellington, and the Mad Hatter may all be male, but with a little tweaking, they make great sexy Halloween costume ideas for women:
Beetlejuice – Beetlejuice may look pretty gross, but he’s actually one of my favorite Halloween costume ideas once he gets cleaned up a bit. Basically all you have to do is modify one of those sexy referee costumes with the big black and white stripes and short skirts. Add a short, green or white wig, a black or purple tie, some sexy knee-high black boots, white face paint, and dark circles around your eyes, and you’ve got one of the most simplistic but effective Halloween costume ideas for recreating this great Tim Burton character as something he’s obviously not: sexy.
The Mad Hatter – Johnny Depp is known for being sexy, but sexy he is not in Tim Burton’s new ‘Alice in Wonderland’ movie. However, the Mad Hatter’s look is one of Tim Butron’s most unique costume ideas, and you can turn him into a sexy Halloween costume of your own. You can get really creative with this one; the main item you will need is the oversized top hat with the Mad Hatter’s “in this style 10/6” card stuck in the hat band. Like many of the Halloween costume ideas on this list, you can modify other sexy Halloween costumes to work with this one. You could use a sexy beer maid or Little Bo Peep Halloween costume and add a few modifications like a big bow tied around your neck (you could use a colorful scarf for this), a fitted coat with white ruffles on the sleeves, some fingerless gloves, a red wig, white face makeup, knee-high white stockings, and some colorful high heels. This is one of the most versatile sexy Halloween costume ideas on this list; just hit up costume shops and thrift stores to put together your own unique version of the Mad Hatter.
Jack Skellington – Stick-figure Jack Skellington is not known for being sexy, and he’s one of the more difficult Halloween costume ideas on this list to pull off. To make him sexy, look for one of those sexy tuxedo bunny Halloween costumes with the white ruffle top. Wear a pair of black tights underneath it, a pair of sexy black boots or high heels, and some black gloves. You’ll need a black wig, plenty of white and back face paint, black lipstick, and black eyeliner to complete the look. Paint your whole face white and use the black face paint to make dark circles around your eyes. Now put on the black lipstick and use the black eyeliner to draw Jack’s signature smile on your face (look for a picture of Jack Skellington online to make sure you do it right). Of course this one of the Halloween costume ideas on this list that you definitely have to have the right body to pull off, and while you still won’t look Jack Skellington (which is a good thing), you’ll look like his sexy, healthier sister.
The Joker – Tim Burton’s take on the Joker is very colorful, so this is one of the sexy Halloween costume ideas that will really make you stand out. Wear a tight purple top or a tight orange top with a fitted purple jacket over it, a green bow tie, a short purple mini-skirt or ruffly skirt, a green wig, white stockings (you could look for some with green stripes), and purple or green heels. If you could find some colorful high-heeled Mary Janes, those would be perfect for a more playful look, and you could also accessorize with purple gloves. Now just paint your face white and complete the look with some bright red or hot pink lipstick. This is one of my favorite Halloween costume ideas when it comes to feminizing male characters.
Willy Wonka – Out of all of the sexy Halloween costume ideas on this list, this one is the most simplistic. Find a sexy black dress, either with a full, fluffy skirt or a mini skirt, and wear it with a black top hat, a fitted maroon jacket (one that’s velvet-like would be great), black stockings, purple gloves, and black high heels or boots. To capture Willy Wonka’s wacky hair, look for a short brown or red wig. This look could even be modified a bit to create another version of the Mad Hatter, and, like many of the other sexy Halloween costume ideas on this list, you can get a little more creative with it, if you like.
So whether you’re mad for the Mad Hatter or are a bit of a Joker yourself, I hope the sexy Halloween costume ideas on this list help you to create your own sexy version of some of Tim Burton’s greatest movie characters.
