How to make your own Doctor Who ghost costume for Halloween

Give your Halloween costume a cosplay twist with the ghost make-up from Before the Flood

We already know that fancy dress shops really don’t ‘get’ Doctor Who, so dedicated Who cosplayers are going to have to do all the work themselves this Halloween.


The good news is that this series has given us a great twist on the standard ghost costume. Forget cutting eye-holes in a bedsheet – instead, why not try recreate the Doctor Who ghosts from Under the Lake/Before the Flood?

The BBC make-up and choreography departments have put together this video of how they brought the eerie phantoms to, uhh, ‘life’, from the way they walk to those deadly deep-set eyes.


Roll on 31 October…
