Can you believe Halloween is less than a week away? If you’re still looking for costume ideas be sure you’re subscribed to my YouTube channel and check out my Halloween videos. My latest Halloween video is a Bellatrix Lestrange costume tutorial. I don’t know about you, but I’m a big Harry Potter fan! I’ll admit, I got into Harry Potter a little later than most, but I still love it just as much as the next.
Bellatrix Lestrange is such a fun character, while at the same time being so deranged and evil. If there was ever a perfect casting, it was Helena Bonham Carter for Bellatrix. Spot on!
What I love about this costume is how easy it is! It’d be really easy to throw together over this next week and the makeup is very simple. It’s all about creating shadows and making yourself look a litter worse for wear. Plus, it’s kind of fun to have crazy messy hair and not worry about a nicely styled look.
I also just want to take a moment here to say that I am a Hufflepuff, so shout out to all you honey badgers out there! What house are you all in?
Finally, I talk about it in my video, but if you’re ever in Orlando and/or London you need to check out both the Harry Potter theme park in Islands of Adventure and the Harry Potter Studios tour outside of London. Both are so amazing! I think I liked the studio tour a little more, but the rides at the park are really fun too!
