If you are just joining us, welcome to #FrightFemmes! Our annual Halloween makeup & costume collaboration. If you missed our introduction to this series, you can find it here. We've been hard at work coming up with five haunting looks this year so we are kicking off Halloween 2022 with Monsters!

A Witch, a Mummy, and a Candy Corn Monster. Three very different takes on classic monsters. That's what I love about our prompts, we each have our own vision of what we would create with every given theme. Caro scares us with the Grand High Witch, Laura enchants us with an Ethereal Boho Mummy, and I charm you with a whimsical Candy Corn Monster.

My Inspiration

Candy Corn! The signature candy of Halloween. Despite its horrible taste, it is the most aesthetically pleasing of them all. I got the idea to create a candy corn character from Disney's Wreck-it Ralph and the show Human Resources; two shows with imaginary characters but entirely different audiences. Please DO NOT watch Human Resources with children. You've been warned. (It's hilarious tho)

If you are not familiar, in Wreck it Ralph, there is a game called Sugar Rush, a land made of Candy where they race cars made of candy. The candy racers are all named after different candies and look so colorful and cute. I got the idea to have candy corn in my hair from Vanellopy von Schweetz. In the show Human Resources, there are creatures assigned to assist humans with different traits. Love is managed by the love bug, addiction is managed by the addiction fairy, and hormones are managed by the hormone monster; a perverted but hilarious character (I got the idea of the horns from this character). Take the candy racers, the hormone monster, and candy corn and you get my idea for a candy corn monster.

I think this is a whimsical and glam costume that is perfect for trick or treating! It's so fun and just screams Halloween. I think this will be my costume of choice if I ever get invited to a kid-friendly Halloween party or for passing out candy! I actually love dressing up in something fun to surprise the kids when I open the door. This might be my go-to look on Halloween night.

Costume Information

For the outfit, I figured this character would be fun, fashion-forward, and quirky. I can totally see this character dancing to disco music and drinking fun sugary cocktails. As with most costumes, I either make them or thrift them. I decided to go the thrifting route for this one.



  • Arda Wigs | Nicki Classic | Fire Orange

  • Candy Corn Beads (glued onto the wig with a glue gun) | JoAnn Fabrics


  • Polymer Clay | Orange, Yellow, & White

  • Headband

  • Elastic - I attached a piece of elastic behind the headband to help keep the horns in place.

Makeup Information

This year I decided to share my makeup charts and make them available for purchase on Etsy. I used my charts in conjunction with Laura's digital planner. It was very helpful working on the makeup chart next to the mood board I created for this character. Things changed a bit in the process of applying my makeup, but it made the application much faster knowing I took a lot of the guesswork out of the way.

Hi! I just finished reading your entire blog and I enjoyed it very much. I found it by coincidence as I was looking for examples of the Butterick corset, but I'll definitely add it to my favourites and come back! With love and admiration, Emmy
