In the following, we will show you how to create a convincing Candy Girl The Purge costume. Have fun!

The candy girl costume is a fun one you get to wear a tulle skirt, a pretty white corset, and an assault rifle. That’s certainly an interesting combination of props, right? If we wish to take a peek under the costume of the candy girl, we meet Kimmy. Kimmy is played by Brittany Mirabile, and her story is quite interesting.

Exploring the Symbolism Behind the Candy Girl’s Outfit

Costume and Mask - Kimmy in the 2016 dystopian horror movie The Purge Election Year.
Kimmy (Brittany Mirabile) was a minor villainess from the 2016 dystopian horror movie The Purge: Election Year.

Kimmy used to be a regular teenage girl with a few vices, and one of them was candy. She tried to steal some from Joe Dixon’s store, and then offered immoral services to get away when she got caught. This rebellious stance of hers is shown through her costume, as she wears provocative clothes and uses her feminine attributes to earn mercy points.

When the annual Purge begins, Kimmy grabs the chance to get revenge and equips herself with weapons. She goes back to the store, confesses her previous killings, and enters a bloody conflict. Her faith was tragic, but so was her story, which is great for the costume, as it gives us more of a dramatic flair.

Candy Girl Hair and Mask

Kimmy’s hair is tied into two space buns, and she wears a big, white mask with distorted eyes and mouth openings. Her famous “KISS ME” mask is a great DIY project you can embrace for fun.

On the YouTube channel Cocoa xchella, we see a great reenactment of the candy girl costume from The Purge. You can find some great advice here!

Our best advice is to keep the make-up relatively minimal, as you’ll be wearing a mask anyway. Get a white corset, a white tulle skirt, some white stockings, and make sure to bedazzle your mockup rifle. You can customize it with spray paint! Have fun being the candy girl but, you know, not too much fun.
