Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live a life of crime? Everyone probably considers it at some point, but most of us are too afraid of doing hard time to pull it off. But there is one time a year where a little bit of mischief can be a good thing, and that’s of course Halloween. Wearing a criminal costume gives you just a little taste of what it might be like to be a jewel thief, mobster or criminal mastermind.
You can decide whether you want to be a successful criminal or one who’s been caught. A criminal who’s been caught of course has to wear a prisoner costume. Prisoner costumes could be black and white stripes with a ball in chain or a more modern orange jumpsuit. Criminals who haven’t been caught can take on a number of different appearances, although usually they wear some kind of mask. Black ski masks that cover most of the face are popular, as well as black masks that just cover the eyes. Black is the preferred color for thieves and other criminals who tend to skulk around at night.
A generic thief costume made up of all black with a mask can be turned into a specific type of thief with some costume props. For instance a jewel thief might carry a large diamond, while an art thief would have a painting. Bank robbers on the other hand carry large bags of money. Adding these types of accessories to your criminal costume can make it much more interesting.
