Halloween is just around the corner, and every year we try to be more creative than the last one. This year has taken its toll on many of us, and after almost a year with the pandemic, we need to start relaxing and looking for ways to lift our mood up. When we celebrate the spookiest of the holidays, we want to be different, unique and we want to make the night or the day special for us and for those around us. In 2023 it is your chance to do something you’ve never done before and you can go as wild as you want to! We spend so much time planning out the outfits and looking for different masks, that we forget about the one thing that makes the whole thing come together – the accessories. When you choose your clothes and makeup, don’t forget to think about the jewelry and how it can bring the costume together.
To help you out with the whole thing, and to give you some inspiration for the jewelry and accessories, we created this article. Use it to get some new ideas, and to wake your creative side up. Know that the things you read here are just recommendations, and you can modify them as you please. This year, try something different and show the world that you are ready to forget about all the scary things that happened in 2023, and you are ready to start a new, better chapter of your life.
This is not for the faint of heart. You need a lot of courage to decide and try this out, but you are definitely going to wear a one-of-a-kind accessory. As the name suggests, you need to purchase or make a necklace out of cockroaches. You definitely won’t be using the real ones, because that would be just too much.
If you want to make it on your own, then you would need to purchase the plastic or silicone insects from the store. They can usually be found everywhere especially during this holiday, or you can look for a prank store that the young generations love to visit. The design is completely yours, but we suggest for you to layer them, in several rows, so you can get a bigger necklace that would look different. You can put them all-around your neck, or just on the front, in the shape of a grape.
Now let’s move to something that is a bit more acceptable. As you all know, body parts are a common theme for this holiday, and this year things are not going to be very different. In the past, we used to make eyeballs for the food appetizers, but in 2023, why don’t you put them on your ears?
According to BikerringShop, you can choose many different designs and incorporate them with the rest of your clothes, starting with a monster eyeball, up to designs combining claws and eyes. You can choose the eye color and the finish, depending on the rest of your outfit, and know that most of these are not too big. Because of that, it is better to combine it with a hair updo, so everyone can notice them. Know that there are a lot of similar necklaces and bracelets on the market, so if you want, you can put all eyes on you, literally.
This year something will be different than any year before, and we are sure to see a lot of Covid-19 masks. So, you should use your creativity to your advantage and create or purchase something that no one has ever seen before. You can choose to wear the mask as your necklace, or you can create virus rings or pendants that you can put on different types of jewelry.
You can even take things one step further and combine pumpkins and masks. Instead of just pumpkin accessories, you can put small masks on them and have something different and unique. Be different and be creative, combine the usual decorations with some pandemic themes, and you will be one of a kind. Instead of pumpkins, you can use skeletons, vampires, or even spiders with surgical masks.
You can never go wrong when you choose vampires or bats as an addition to your Halloween costume. Nowadays there are a lot of different types of jewelry with bats, and this year the rings are extremely trendy.
You can choose if you want them to be black, or you can go one step further, and combine sterling silver, bats, and a special gem. This gives you the opportunity to use different colors, and to easily match the outfit to the accessories. For example, if you are wearing something that’s black and red, you can choose a bat necklace with red eyes or a red gemstone. You don’t have to stick to bats only, you can also use fangs as a bracelet, or even a necklace.
Day of the dead
When you choose this type of jewelry, it will allow you to combine a lot of colors with skeletons. We are used to wearing two or three colors only for this spooky holiday, so why don’t you use your imagination to create and wear something different?
This jewelry is inspired by the Mexican holiday, and you can use roses, skulls, skeletons, and match them with bright colors. It is going to be easy for you to find some accessories with the form of a skull, and you can use some nail polishes or any other type of paint, to give them the hues that match your clothes. Once again, with this, you are free to be as creative as you want to be, and you should not hold back or stick to the usual red and black.
As you can see, there are a lot of different things you can use as accessories for the upcoming holiday and know that the spiders are a safe bet as well. You can even mix your favorite horror movies and current themes to create something different. Michael Myers, Freddy Kruger, and Jason Voorhees would look cute in surgical masks, don’t you agree?
