Art History-Inspired Halloween Costumes

Art Stuff 25 Oct 2022

Spooky season is here and we know that all you gallerinas and fashionistas are looking for your costumes for Halloween.

Sometimes going as a sexy zombie or one of the Powerpuff girls just won’t cut it, and you want to let the world see your more academic, aesthetically-sensitive side. Time to get inspired by some of the art world’s Greatest Hits.

Two things we can recommend that you definitely avoid when putting together your dream art-inspired outfits: don’t go as Van Gogh with a bandaged ear (ableism is never a good look) and don’t dress up as Frida Kahlo unless you’re incredibly aware of what might constitute cultural appropriation.

So here’s our list of art-inspired ideas for your next Halloween bash:

• Roy Lichtenstein’s Crying Girl Spot Makeup
• Rene Magritte’s The Son of Man Mask
• Grant Wood’s American Gothic Couple Costume
• Damien Hirst’s The Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living Shark Costume
• Sarah Lucas’ Self Portrait with Fried Eggs Outfit
• Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe in Multicolour Face Paint
• Johannes Vermeer’s Girl With The Pearl Earring Outfit
• John William Waterhouse’s The Lady of Shalott Outfit
• Jackson Pollock’s Number 1 Splatter Makeup
• Mark Rothko’s Untitled Colour-Ombre Outfit & Makeup
