Are you a fan of the popular video game, Splatoon? Do you want to dress like a skilled player from the game? Well, look no further, because we’ve got you covered! Whether you’re attending a costume party or just want to show off your love for the game, here are some tips and ideas for creating the perfect Squid-tacular costume.
Embrace the Ink: Tips for DIY costumes
Making your own costume can be a lot of fun and it allows you to get creative with your look. To create a Splatoon-inspired costume, start by choosing a base color, such as pink, green, or blue. Then, using fabric paint or markers, create a pattern of ink splatters, squiggles, or stripes on a plain white shirt and shorts or leggings. Finish off the look with a pair of matching sneakers or boots.
You can also create a costume inspired by your favorite Splatoon weapon. For example, if you love the Roller, create a costume that looks like a giant paint roller by attaching foam rollers to a cardboard box or backpack. Add details like a handle and paint splatters to complete the look.
Splatoon Inspired Costumes
If you want a more authentic Splatoon look, there are plenty of costumes available online. You can find costumes that look like the Inkling Boy or Girl, or even the Octoling Girl. These costumes come with everything you need to look like you just stepped out of the game, including a wig, hat, and eye mask.
Octopus-y Fun: Creative Costume Ideas
If you want to switch things up, why not dress up as an Octoling? This is a great option if you want to stand out from the crowd. Create an Octoling costume by wearing a black bodysuit and adding tentacles made from foam or fabric. You can also add a headband with an Octoling ear and goggles to complete the look.
Accessorize like a Pro: Squid-tastic details
No Splatoon costume is complete without accessories. Add a backpack or messenger bag to carry your paint supplies, or wear a necklace or bracelet with ink droplet charms. You can also wear a Splatoon-inspired hat or headband to show off your love for the game.
Make a Splash: Eye-catching Makeup
To really bring your Splatoon costume to life, don’t forget the makeup! Use bright colors like pink, green, and blue to create a unique and eye-catching look. You can also add a few ink droplets around your eyes or on your cheeks to complete the look.
Ready, Set, Go: Dressing for the Game
If you’re attending a Splatoon tournament or event, you’ll want to dress the part. Wear a Splatoon t-shirt or hoodie to show off your team spirit, and add a pair of matching sneakers to complete the look. If you’re feeling really bold, you can even wear a Splatoon-inspired wig or hat.
Costume Party Planning: Invites & Decor
If you’re hosting a Splatoon-themed party, make sure to invite your guests with colorful and fun invitations. You can also decorate your party space with Splatoon posters, streamers, and balloons. Set up a paint station where guests can create their own ink art, and have a Splatoon tournament to see who comes out on top.
Don’t be a Squid, Be a Kid: Kid-friendly Costumes
If your child is a fan of Splatoon, they’ll love dressing up as their favorite Inkling or Octoling. There are plenty of kid-friendly costumes available online, or you can create your own DIY costume using fabric paint and markers. Add a pair of colorful sneakers and your child will be ready to splat!
Squid Squad: Group Costume Ideas
If you’re attending a costume party with friends, why not dress up as a Squid Squad? Each person can choose a different Inkling or Octoling costume, and together you’ll look like a formidable team. You can even carry matching weapons or wear matching hats to really stand out.
No matter what your style or budget, there’s a Squid-tacular costume out there for everyone. So embrace your inner Inkling or Octoling and show off your love for Splatoon with a fun and creative costume. Happy splatting!
