Purge Halloween Costumes | Entertainment

It’s time to start brainstorming some ideas for the perfect Halloween costume, and believe us when we say that nothing is scary like “The Purge.” Ever since the chilling horror film series burst onto the scene in 2013, the pop culture phenomenon has become a Halloween staple year after year.

In case you missed the initial hype, “The Purge” movies and TV series revolve around one day each year when, in a 12-hour period, all crime (including murder and dressing in white after Labor Day) are legal in a dystopian America. . The horror franchise is a huge success both critically and financially and is an easy, affordable and creative theme for many Halloween costumes.

For the past several years, Halloween goers young and old have used “The Purge” franchise and its iconic, creepy, Instagram-worthy masks as their spooky inspiration for the season. In a 2018 interview with the Film Association, “The First Purge” costume designer Amela Baksic discussed the origin of the franchise’s masks and the secret to making a perfect Purge mask. “Gerard McMurray, our director, and Sebastien Lemercier, our producer, pointed me in the direction of Cajun Mardi Grass, which has a number of very unusual and inventive masks,” she explained. “I’ve also looked at Haitian carnival masks, which incorporate images of bulls, and have inspired the bull mask used in the Purge party, which appears on many posters… The key to creating a successful Purge mask is [a] a certain simplicity and DIY quality, without seeming too finished or too designed”.

Get inspired by these terrifying Purge costume ideas ahead of you.
