With Halloween around the corner, we dove into our closets to find quick and easy costumes to please all manner of costume and cosplay enthusiasts! Our focus today is on the sun goddess, Amaterasu, from The Wicked + The Divine.
Like a pop idol version of the Childlike Empress, the modern day version of the sun goddess Amaterasu from The Wicked + The Divine seems to be all about the bohemian life. But a famous goddess always has expensive tastes, so the theme of this DIY costume is finding the balance. We took some liberties with Amaterasu’s getup and found a long sleeved lace dress with just enough detail to look both easy and expensive at the same time. If you’re not used to accessories, for this Amaterasu Halloween costume, go gaudy. We chose a large gold statement necklace and paired it with a faux pearl hand chain. For the shoes, our minds wandered from festival staples like gladiator shoes and fringe booties before settling on another great compromise, suede heels with rhinestones for a psuedo expensive touch. Add a curly red wig with heavy bangs from your favorite wig shop, top it with a gold filigree headband, and you have completed your outfit!
The main staple of this costume is the multicolored eye makeup, so we chose Kat Von D’s Mi Vida Loca eyeshadow palette, which has a color wheel to help you achieve this look. Now that your eyes are on point, dab on some Obsessive Compulsive Lip Tar in the shade Radiate and go do just that! Want to take your Amaterasu Halloween costume to the next level? Add a toy microphone and black out contact lenses for the full effect of a rock goddess!
