17 Creative DIY Halloween Costume Ideas Based On The Purge

Even if you’ve never seen The Purge, or any of the sequels that came after it, you know what it is: a scary movie about a night when all crime becomes legal for 12 hours and no emergency responders will help anyone. I’ve never seen The Purge, because I’m afraid of everything and home invasion movies terrify me, but I did go in The Purge haunted house at Universal Studios in Orlando a few years ago, and it was quite horrifying. Like, one of the scariest haunted houses I’ve ever been in.

Anyway. The Purge has inspired years and years worth of Halloween costumes based on the movie. Most of the costumes seem like just an excuse to wear revealing lingerie, a lot of fake blood, and a creepy mask… which really, when you think about it, is what Halloween is all about. The costumes are popular because they’re easy and cheap to put together, they’re scary even if you’re not familiar with the film, and they always get attention. That said, they’re everywhere. So, maybe you’re looking for one that hasn’t been seen a million times before. The below costume ideas are definitely all popular, but there’s at least one you can find that’s perfect for you if you want to creep everyone out this Halloween. Check out these costume ideas based on The Purge and go get yourself a lot of fake blood. Disclaimer, though: I don’t recommend carrying around a fake gun unless it is VERY clearly fake. This just doesn’t seem like the best time for that!
