Halloween is a time for adults to indulge the kid inside. Why not dress up and have fun with a “Seven Deadly Sins” themed party? Getting inspiration from traditional views on cardinal sins, hell or the film Se7en can make a party that will be the talk of the town.
Fancy Dress Costume Ideas for Seven Deadly Sins Theme
There are different methods of representing the seven deadly sins as a theme for a Halloween party. Try a fat suit or pig costume for “Gluttony”. A Scrooge costume is fitting for “Greed” or dress in luxurious fabrics with many gold chains and bundles of fake cash. For “Pride” keep a mirror to admire your reflection. Or wear a gown, sash and crown holding a trophy. An all-green outfit and contact lenses can symbolize the “green with envy” proverb. Try a dressing gown and slippers for “Sloth”. For “Wrath” dress as the devil with red horns and trident or a movie gangster with a gun ready to kill someone. Remember that acting is an integral part of pulling off a deadly sin Halloween costume!
Seven Deadly Sins Halloween Party Decor Ideas
It may be a good idea to have a room or area of the home decorated to represent each sin. Here are some tips for decor that should provide inspiration:
Gluttony – Have a chocolate fountain and plenty of nibbles on a small table for people to gorge on.
Greed – Set up a poker and roulette game with fake money and gold coins.
Lust – Try red lights, silky fabrics, strip club music, lacy lingerie and lipstick on a mirror
Pride – Flattering blue lights, plenty of mirrors or reflective foil means guests can enjoy their vanity. Have a selection of beauty face-masks for people to use.
Envy – Cover a wall with fake green vines and eyeballs to represent the green eyed monster
Sloth – Comfy area near the TV with blankets, pillows and food.
Wrath – Put up pictures of serial killers in an angry stance and news clippings about revenge. If you want to go all out create a crime scene complete with chalked outline of victim, blood splatters and evidence to prove it was an act of rage.
A sign with the name of the sin can make the section a little clearer. Save money by borrowing items when possible and getting what you need well in advance from thrift stores, garage sales and online at Craigslist’s free section. Ideal things to borrow include mannequins, chocolate fountain and karaoke machine.
