Halloween is just around the corner and Minecraft is the perfect game for that. Not only does it have certain aspects that are downright scary (the deep darkness and abandoned villages, for example), but it’s also a great game for costume ideas.
Mobs, biomes, characters, and more fit right in with Halloween costumes. However, some are a bit more difficult than others. For example, it would be difficult to dress like a Relieve since they are small and fly.
Still, Minecraft is full of amazing costume ideas to use on October 31. These are some of the best examples.
Minecraft Entities That Make Great Halloween Costumes
Villagers may be the most iconic mob in Minecraft. Everyone knows what these mobs are and the best thing about using them for a Halloween costume is that there are so many options.
You can dress up as a librarian, cartographer, blacksmith, bricklayer, or any of the professions. You can even dress up as a fool or an unemployed villager. Going further, some of the biomes have different styles for the villagers, so there are plenty of options.
Zombies are popular Halloween costumes during the spooky season. Many horror movies focus on them, which is why they have become an iconic monster. However, the Minecraft version of the monster is more specific.
It would be very similar to a Steve outfit, as the zombies resemble the protagonist’s outfit. In fact, the blue pants and light blue shirt that one might wear for a Steve outfit could be used to make a stellar zombie Halloween costume.
To finish the costume, simply paint the exposed area green and you’ll look like a zombie.
There may not be a mob that represents Minecraft more than a climbing plant. It’s in the logo, after all, and it’s the most recognizable mob in the game. The difficulty with making it into a costume is simply that the mob shape doesn’t lend itself to the human body.
Still, that can be fixed. The design is quite simple and there are costumes you can buy that do a good job of molding the creeper into human form.
Perhaps the most fear-inducing hostile mob (with the exception of the Guardian) is the enderman. They are terrifying, especially thanks to their behavior. However, its design is also quite scary. Dark skin with purple eyes is disturbing.
Fortunately, this is a relatively easy costume to remake. Just wear a black skin suit or completely black clothing (including a mask of some sort) and black eyes. This can be replicated with purple lenses or something else, although blocking the eyes can be a bit dangerous.
1) Steve or Alex
Both Steve and Alex, whichever default lead look you prefer, can do wonders for a Halloween costume. For starters, they are both very recognizable. Pairing the blue shirt with dark jeans is a classic look and you’ll instantly look like Steve. Brown hair will complete the outfit with ease, but it’s not required.
To enhance the outfit, add a diamond pickaxe or sword. These can be made quite easily from cardboard, but there are some for sale that are legitimately made if you’re interested in authenticity. Either way, this will solidify the outfit as one of the best Minecraft Halloween costumes and one of the best costumes overall.
