How To Dress Like Ghostface
What is Scream?
Scream is an American slasher film franchise created by Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven. Starring Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette, the series grossed over $604 million in revenue worldwide.
Ghostface is the name given to the character who wears a white mask with a stylized black smiley face in the Scream franchise. Ghostface has been featured in all four films, as well as the novels Scream, Scream 2: Haunting Hour, and Scream 4: Haunting Hour. The character was portrayed by Matthew Lillard in the first three films and by Roger L. Jackson in the fourth film. In each film Ghostface usually calls or texts his intended victim to taunt them before attacking them, or leaves a message on their answering machine. Ghostface’s phone calls are usually answered by a generic artificial voice like “leave your name after the tone” or “call back later” or “the person you have called is not available” but sometimes it will be answered by his victim before he kills them. Ghostface tends to appear suddenly and kill his victims with tools close at hand; usually weapons from his home (knives, scissors) or the weapon of his victim (gun, baseball bat). He wears a black cloak and hood to conceal his identity, and tends to murder his victims in gruesome ways.
Ghostface has appeared in four films: Scream (1996), Scream 2 (1997), Scream 3 (2000) and Scream 4 (2011). In the original film, Ghostface is revealed to be Mickey Altieri, Sidney’s cousin. In the sequels, Ghostface is revealed to be a copycat killer who uses the legend of the Ghostface Killer as a guise for his murders. In 2011’s Scream 4, it is revealed that Andy’s cousin Jill Roberts has been orchestrating a series of murders based on the films.Check Price on Amazon
Ghostface Style in Scream:
The Ghostface costume was designed by Randy James based on a drawing by Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven. The mask is made of a latex skin over a foam latex skull. The mask is full over the face, with an opening for the eyes. The eyes are hollowed out, and detailed with acrylic paints. A zipper runs from the bottom of the mouth to the top of the forehead; this allows for easy removal of the mask, but also allows for it to be laced up at the mouth and chin (lacing up being one of many features copied from Hannibal Lecter).
The costume is accompanied by a black cloak, worn over a dark hooded sweatshirt. The costume also includes a butcher knife or other long bladed object which is used as the murder weapon.
Ghostface’s ears are very prominent in Scream as they stick out of his mask when he comes down from his hiding place in order to commit his murders, which usually involve stabbing or shooting. His ears are seen sticking out because they are so large that they have no choice but to be seen! Ghostface’s ears are so large that they dwarf Charlie’s head! We do not know if his ears are big in order to hear better or if they are big because his face is so small.

Black Hooded Cloak
This black cloak is worn over the victim’s face by Ghostface before he kills her. The cloak features long sleeves and has a hood that covers the face and neck of the victim. The cloak is made from a thick, black fabric that makes it difficult to see through. You can use this as part of your costume or you can purchase it at a Halloween store.Check Price on Amazon
Fake Kitchen Knife
This fake kitchen knife can be used to complete your Ghostface costume. The knife is sharp and features a wooden handle and a plastic blade that has been painted silver. This knife is used by Ghostface as his weapon of choice when he goes on his killing spree in Scream . It is not recommended to use real knives during your Halloween costume because they are dangerous to have around children and other people. Fake knives are safe for children and other people who may come in contact with you while wearing your costume. Another option would be to get plastic knives at Wal-Mart for $0.98 each.
