The Maze Runner tells the story of an unpredictable maze designed to kill. If you're looking for a Halloween costume that's both dark and deadly, the film offers a great option.
With its cast of mostly male characters clothed in plain, well-worn clothes, creating an awesome The Maze Runner costume might not seem easy. Yet, with dark makeup and a few lines, you can turn your face into the movie's crazy, ever-changing maze.
Youtuber xxmakeupiscoolxx offers a tutorial that's a cinch to replicate. With a simple maze mask and a few cuts and scrapes, you can become one of The Maze Runner's bloodied survivors.
With this tutorial, your mask comes together in just minutes. Adding the bloody wounds is a fast process, too, combining makeup and concealer to get a 3D effect.
If you have a little more time to prep on Halloween night, try turning your whole body into the frightening maze. Youtube makeup pro C0OK1EMONSTER offers easy-to-follow instructions that show how to extend your The Maze Runner costume.
It all begins with a series of straight lines—the goal is to make your lines as unpredictable as the movie's twists and turns, leaving room around the eyes for a mini makeup mask. Once your detailed maze is complete, it's time to add a bit of color and shading to create a mask.
Now, you're ready to turn yourself into a victim of the maze, or even the maze itself—and you won't spend too much time prepping on Halloween night.
