The ghastly, the appalling, and the horrendous supernatural spirits have glorified the blossom of the night sky and the dark shadows and also have sanctified the relentless pain and suffering. Though, adventure lovers since the historical times have unmasked the mystified and ghoulish locations with hideous, untold, and undiscovered demonic entities around them.
The very appearances that have breached the norms of society and have refused to abide by heaven's rulebooks, thereby challenging the Trinity, are followed this day.

The practices such as the exorcism and purification of the soul though have surged high as compared to the past activities. Still, the Satanic dwellings have caused serious implications for death and disaster.
The Halloween's Day celebration represents the same, Halloween's origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in). The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago, mostly in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France. Therefore the countries like The United Kingdom, the United States, the Latin American and others such with the demonic inferences displayed through their turbulent history, frightening legends and the age-old castles, celebrate the festival religiously.
"The All Hallows Eve"

You all might have watched the Nun, and the film is a prequel to The Conjuring, which detailed the real case files of noted demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren. Those case files have also inspired The Conjuring 2, Anabelle and Annabelle: Creation, and the 1979 horror classic, The Amityville Horror. What was your takeaway from it?
Or The Pennywise for that matter??The Dancing clown?? Yes, and how could you forget the Doll named Anabelle?? Aren't you inspired by their costumes, their theatrical appearance, don't their very look and growl terrify you? Well, if you say that you haven't been frightened by Valak(The Nun), or the doll named Anabelle or the Pennywise, then you have definitely wasted your bucks…
On the contrary, the inspirations have been so real that they have given the Fashion lovers their Halloween make-up ideas!! So now, let's discuss in detail these and a few more of those filmed characters and their make-ups.
1)Pennywise(The Dancing Clown)!
This is a character from the film named IT. This film circumscribes the clown and the seven young lads in Derry! The folks face their worst nightmare in the form of an ancient shape-shifting evil that makes its appearance every 27 years to feed itself on the kids in town. The bloodthirsty and the murderous clown deceives the kids with its joyously playful appearance, later making them its prey.
Outlining the devilish and the venomous appearance is the make-up, the clown's been adorned with! This gives a thematic idea to the fashion lovers, as they could now get themselves dressed, cloistered in a costume, as the clown is. The character has been successful in delivering a dreadful ambiance that could encourage not only the kids and young children but also the middle-aged men to dress in a similar fashion.
The sister named Valak from the movie the Nun has been instrumentally impulsive enough in motivating the paranormal resolute and a demonically resilient character. The Nun takes a toll on her own life in the sheltered abbey in Romania. The movie then follows the theme on how the Priest with a dreadful past and a novitiate are sent to investigate there, confronting the Nun. The malicious force of the inhuman spirit then makes them suffer till hell and their ways to deal and fight back, is what is revealed from the latter half of the movie.
Apart from this, the character has been dressed up for an aggressively fierce look. The blood-red eyes, the oozing drop of blood trickling down from her forehead and also from the side of her lips, signifies her past. The dress that follows the typical Roman Catholic and the Anglican consists of a tunic covered by a scapular and cowl with a veil. The paranormal presence sends a terrifyingly responsive message to the young and the middle-aged girls, revealing a theme that no standards can be compared to any other and is par excellence. This tells how they could symbolize the Nun in their own ways during the Halloween times.
3)Poison IVY-Batman’s enemy!
The Dc comic fans, especially the one's liking the Batman's enemies, have the obsession of the make-up, the cosmetics, and the costume of Poison Ivy. The character that is known to be affectionately dreadful. Batman's friend and partner Robin falls for Poison Ivy and attempts a kiss with her, undoubtedly falling into her trap!. What happens as a result defines the deadly, deceitful, and devastatingly rogue nature of the Poison girl. Robin goes unconscious and is later found lying in a helpless and distressing situation.
Through the series of conflicts and confrontations with Poison IVY, the witnesses(especially the females) find the mysterious nature and falsehood in character really appealing. Some of them are so over-captivated with the hypocrisy and duplicity of the character that it might top the list of their preferential dresses for imminent Halloween!
4) Zombies have served as favorites forever!
Also termed as the walking dead, the zombies have instilled the real colour of fear, apathy and the horrific essence into human society. They have been the evergreen servers of terror and fright. Symbolized to express the plight of the saddened and depressed creatures of the society, the zombies signify the spread of anger, hatred, and maligne amongst human beings. The Zombies have stirred the symphony of what can be said as the abnormality in eternal life.
Though they have been the first chosen ones when it comes to getting dressed for Halloween! The kids, the young children, the age grouped in adolescence and the elderly section of the society, have all been the prisoners to their cynical appearances.
5)The Abraham Lincon look!
The most dynamic and prolific President's ghost seems to haunt the White House! The ghost of Lincoln was witnessed quite often at the time of the administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt; This happened when the country was under an extremely critical and clinical phase. It was a devastating degradation of the United States as the country was facing a war-like situation or was in a war authorized ecosystem. When Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands was a guest at the White House during that period, she was awakened one night by a knock on her bedroom door.
Though the presence of Abraham Lincon was sublime in itself! The ghastly appearance took the heart of many, so much so that most of them made this look of his, their primary choice for the Halloween times. The look of the President enchanted vows of valour, the dignity and the heroic presence of his. This picture below explains how bronzer and highlight to transform someone into this prolific President.
These demonic appearances and their mystified glory replicate the inhumane spirituality and the degree of possession they may have over the "spiritually most vulnerable" people taking them to their world. The cry, the pain, the agony and the scorn of the paranormal world has surpassed the positivity of human beings to the extent that they are amongst us or maybe within us representing themselves through our costumes, our make-up and our festivity and more often our brutality towards the humankind.
