In the movie ‘The Purge’ there are some mask people who attacks a home. This mask is very famous for Halloween costume. The masks are really very creepy and gives a chill sensations when you look at it. 

There are basically different type of mask in which my favorite is the mask with no permanent structure. This masks has eyes and a mouth but it’s creepy because none of them is fully structured. It feels like they have been melted down and the white color of the mask gives it pure horror element. 

Other mask is the one which has creepy smile on its face. It has two big closed eyes and a big smiling mouth. The color of this mask is also white.

You can also wear purge anarchy Halloween costumes mask which has a cross on its forehead and addition boundaries around its eyes.


  1. A simple black hoodie:

Believe it or not a simple black hoodie can become a perfect purge costume for Halloween. Buy a full black hoodie from any store or any online stores. It would be better if you buy the hoodie’s size one size larger than you usually. It will make your look more insane. 

Also you must watch for any kind of prints or letters on that hoodie. There must not be any prints as it will eliminate the whole effect. 

And on the bonus point just torn your hoodie from some places and burn it from some places. These burnt holes will make it absolutely horror.


  1. An Axe for the purge Halloween costume:

With the above two style if you carry an Axe, it would add one darker layer to your personality. This axe is a very simple modern axe. This does not have any element of horror. It neither has big metal parts nor does it have big wooden handle and it is also medium in size. It is painted in red on its sides and it shows its metal blade. 

If you are playing with some kind of horror elements, being brutal and mysterious can be a great option and axe looks creepier than having a gun.


  1. The Purge uncle Sam costume:

Uncle Sam came in the Purge: election year. This movie came in the theaters in year 2016. The Uncle Sam costume includes a three piece set for men. This costume includes a pant designed as American flag, a blue suit and a gun. This purge costume also includes an automatic gun colored in American flag and a creepy mask.

  1. Red stained white shirts and socks:

When you are dealing with scary things, blood stains can work like miracle. Blood stains are a sign of killing or insanity.  It also increases the intensity of the scene. 

A white shirt having blood stains or long socks full of blood stains can really be a very scary costume for the day. In bonus if you use fake blood on your body or on your face it would be a great advantage. Only your look will be enough to kill anyone.
