If you are looking for an instantly recognizable costume for Halloween season, you can’t go wrong with the cult 90’s hero The Crow, played by Brandon Lee in his final film. The goth-styled anti-hero has a dark look that is a great fit for many costume parties and events around Halloween.

Here is a look at how you can dress like The Crow for your next costume party or event.


How to Dress Like the Crow

The Crow’s signature look is all about black clothes and makeup.

Hair

In the film, the Crow has long, messy black hair. It’s often wet since he spends an inordinate amount of time hunting for vengeance in the cold rain. To get this look if you don’t already have long black hair, you will need get a premium black wig like this one:

Makeup

Next, add some goth makeup to create the iconic look from the movie. Start with a white base on your face, and then use black eyeliner and eye shadow to create a smoky, dramatic look around the eyes. You can also use black lipstick to complete The Crow’s look.

Accessories

Finish the look with some black gloves and boots. And don’t forget the most important accessory – the crow itself! I recommend getting a plush crow doll since real crows won’t be keen on hanging around. (They are extremely smart, you know!)
