1. Spider Queen

Transform into a creepy spider queen with this dramatic look.

Start by using a blueish-grey colored face and body paint to give skin an icy, icy hue.

Add striking yellow sclera contacts to make the eyes appear inhuman. Paint lips black or use a deep plum lipstick to complement the cool tone.

Glue thick, spidery false eyelashes along the lashline and extend them at the outer corners.

Use eyelash glue to attach a couple of plastic spider rings or small spider toys to the chest to look like they are crawling on you.

Finish with a silver spiderweb necklace.
