Create the vampire effect by putting on makeup. Choose a foundation that is one shade lighter than your skin colour. Put on fake fangs and complete the effect by smearing ketchup around your mouth. There are many vampire shows where you can look for inspirations.

Mary Poppins is another character that you can easily recreate. Don on a long black skirt, a white buttoned down shirt, black pantyhose and a red bow. For props, you will need a black umbrella, black hat and white gloves.

Want to predict the future? Show up as a fortune teller. Put on a head scarf, wear a shimmery dress with a matching shawl, don on lots of jewellery such as necklaces, rings and bangles and walk around with a magic crystal ball and a stack of cards.
