Tips for Recreating Purge Movie Characters
The Purge film series is an American dystopian action horror collection based on the fictional concept of a 12-hour American holiday where all crimes, including murder, are legal. The Purge has also been adapted into a TV series.
These films and the TV show have introduced several iconic and creepy characters that have become synonymous with the series. To recreate some of these eerie Purge movie characters for your next costume party or Halloween event, follow the instructions below for each mask and corresponding outfit:
THE STRANGE CONE MASK GUY FROM THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR
This character is part of Uncle Sam’s team, and their peculiar mask is one of the most memorable aspects of the character. To create this look, pick a Captain Nose Masks and get a blue jacket to pair it with. Alternatively, you can customize your captain mask by adding details like paint or other embellishments. Keep in mind that blue signifies support for the Purge tradition, so incorporate the color into your costume as much as possible. To complete the look, consider adding military-style pants or accessories like gloves or boots.
THE DEMON MOUTH FROM THE PURGE: ANARCHY
This character is a biker gang member and requires extra effort to achieve the eerie appearance. Begin with the Blank Fantasma mask. If you don’t have one, you can settle for a plain Fantasma. Use face paints to paint the open mouth all the way down your neck. The painted mouth should resemble a demonic, terrifying grin. A white vest and leather jacket makes for an authentic biker look. Add biker gloves, a bandana, and dark jeans or leather pants to complete the ensemble.
THE CLOWN FACE GIRL FROM THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR
Select a frightening clown mask that features exaggerated makeup, a sinister smile, or other creepy elements. Pair it with any Halloween outfit suitable for a masked ball, such as a black dress or suit with red accents. To fully embrace the character, go all out and wear a full clown costume, complete with oversized shoes, a colorful wig, and perhaps even a prop weapon to add an extra layer of terror.
The Two Skipping Girls: To recreate this duo, you need a friend and two full-face Joker masks. Dress identically in any outfit, such as matching dresses or jumpsuits. Add accessories like matching wigs, gloves, or stockings for a truly unified look. For an added touch of horror, consider carrying prop weapons or incorporating fake blood into your outfits.
The Guy in the Hoodie: This character is simple but effective. Simply wear the purge mask and a hoodie for an easy Halloween costume. Opt for a dark-colored hoodie to enhance the creepy factor. You can also add accessories like gloves or prop weapons for a more menacing appearance.
The Hipster Lumberjack: Pair a lumberjack shirt with the smiling face Joker mask for a modern, yet unsettling twist on a classic character. Complete the look with jeans, boots, and a beanie or hat. To take this character to the next level, consider adding a prop axe or other lumberjack-inspired accessories.
The Polite Leader: This character is one of the most iconic figures in The Purge series. To create this look, wear your work suit with the Volto Joker mask. Make sure your suit is formal and clean, as the character is known for being well-dressed and sophisticated. Add a tie or a bow tie to complete the outfit. To make the character even more menacing, consider carrying a prop weapon or incorporating fake blood into your costume.
THE CANDY BAR GIRL FROM THE PURGE ELECTION YEAR
This character is initially seductive but ultimately disturbing. Start with the Blank White Bauta mask as your base. To decorate the mask, you can use red and black paint or stage makeup. Draw black teeth on the mouth, add red paint around the mouth and chin, and write “Kiss Me” across the forehead to attract potential victims. Wear a corset, tutu, stockings, and knee-high boots for a sinister yet alluring Halloween ensemble. Add accessories like a choker necklace, gloves, or a prop weapon to complete the look.
THE WAVING GOD FROM THE PURGE: ANARCHY
This gang leader mostly stands in the background, creepily waving at people. To achieve this enigmatic look, use the undecorated white Volto mask, face makeup to add rosy cheeks, defined eyebrows, and pink lips. Use a marker pen to write “GOD” across the forehead. Complete the look with a hooded cape or a hoodie for your Halloween costume. Opt for dark colors to emphasize the mysterious nature of the character. Add accessories like gloves, a prop weapon, or even a scepter to give the costume a sense of authority and power.
