Who is Carrie White?

Carrie White is the main character of the 1976 film, Carrie, which was adapted from the eponymous Stephen King novel.

Dress up as Carrie White this Halloween! 

In order to slip into the role of the infamous Carrie White, start with a long blonde wig. You will then need a long pink dress to mimic her prom attire, as well as a flowy pink shawl. Slip on little golden heels and a pink flower corsage. To feel like a true prom queen, remember the glittering crown and prom queen sash that will complete the look Carrie wore that fateful night… 

Sounds cute, right? Wait… something is missing: 

Don’t forget to then drench yourself in fake blood! This will replicate the pig blood that was dumped on Carrie’s head and lead her to unleash her powers. You really want to squirt the red liquid all over your head and let it stain your pretty dress to emphasize the horror of the moment. The iconic look was created by costume designer Rosanna Norton, who chose the pale pink prom dress in order to make the blood splatter stand out even more in the end.

A simple pinkish prom makeup is also a good idea when trying to turn into the tragic character of Carrie. Apply foundation, concealer, a slight blush and rose lipstick. The point of this costume is to make it all look pretty and innocent, like virginal Carrie was, then absolutely destroy all that hard work with large amounts of fake blood. This October, you’re sure to draw blood-curling screams from your friends at Halloween with this terrifying Carrie White costume!
