If you’re looking for a scary Halloween costume this is the one for you! This fierce AF bear costume comes fully stocked with all the bloody details for a dramatic wild animal effect. Dressing up with your S.O.? Turn this into a couples costume and pair your not-so-cuddly bear with Leo from The Revenant.

DIY Bear Halloween Costume

You’ll need:


1. Mix various shades of brown, black, and white face paint to create the snout. Paint a brown base to forehead and cheeks, and accent eyebrows with white strokes to add definition.

2. Line eyes with black eyeliner and apply mascara to make lashes look fuller.

3. Have a *bloody* good time with your red face, painting around the mouth. Then, just put on gloves, grit those teeth, and let out a good roarrrrr!
