Many of our talented affiliates have gone as far as adding contour makeup to their looks so that they will look like the actors from the film for their Sweeney Todd cosplay. Check out their amazing work below.
For fans of the Sweeney Todd movie, the Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter casting will be the most familiar but this stage musical has featured many famous faces in its time leaving you plenty of options when it comes to creating a Sweeney Todd and Mrs Lovett costume.
@hollymurraymakeup captures the moment in Sweeney Todd when he is reunited with his barber’s tools - ‘At last my arm is complete again’. This Sweeney Todd-inspired look has an extra creepy twist thanks to the White Blind Colored Contact Lenses that Holly has opted to use for this SFX Sweeney Todd costume.
Holly’s Sweeney Todd costume, inspired by Johnny Depp is even complete with one of Mrs Lovett’s gruesome pies in this awesome video featuring Holly as Sweeney Todd and Mrs Lovett! Who needs the rest of the cast when you could have Holly playing all the parts?!?
As you can see the White Blind Colored Contacts are back for an encore in @hollymurraymuakeup’s Mrs Lovett makeup as well as one of her famous pies. No need to buy a costume when you have amazing makeup skills like Holly! As you can see, she has painted every element of this Mrs Lovett cosplay herself and has completed the look by ruffling up her own hair and drawing attention to those creepy white out eyes.
@fx_freak’s SFX makeup is so convincing that at first we didn’t realise her Mrs Lovett costume is actually painted on! In contrast to Holly, @fx_freak has paired her shadowy eye makeup with a pair of Black Halloween Colored Contact Lenses to give even more depth and mystery to her eyes.
Sweeney Todd and Mrs Lovett Costumes
Sweeney Todd costume design usually includes black trousers, white shirt, and a black waistcoat with cravat. To complete your Sweeney Todd transformation, add a white streak to your hair or wear a Sweeney Todd wig. The final touch is the ghostly makeup and a pair of colored contact lenses. There are many ways to create Sweeney Todd costumes - search in your own wardrobe or purchase a fancy dress costume, ready for your next party or event.
To create a Mrs Lovett cosplay, you will need a brown Victorian-style dress and lace gloves. Again, you can opt for a wig or style your own hair into Mrs Lovett’s curls. Finally, add your makeup and colored contact lenses.
