There’s niche Halloween, and then there’s REALLY niche Halloween. With the penultimate of this month’s Halloween warm-up instalment, I decided to go for the latter and become The Nightman (ah ah ahhhh)
I fully understand that some of you might not know who The Nightman is, and are staring at your screens like WTF M8, but I’m totally going to explain myself, I swear. Always Sunny in Philadelphia is HANDS DOWN my favourite comedy, of all time. I’ve watched all 12 seasons around 10 times now, and I never go a week without watching at least one or two episodes. It’s way too funny and I’m annoyingly starting to quote it in my everyday life, much to the irritation of my boyfriend (sowi). But would Halloween really be Halloween without a dedication to one of my fave characters Charlie Kelly’s imaginary creation, The Nightman?
While on a glue high (yes, you heard me right), Charlie is attempting to tackle a musical endeavour when he is visited by friend Dennis, who helps him write the song The Dayman,which talks about the character and his nemesis The Nightman. Later on in the fourth season (the last episode to be exact!) Charlie creates a play called The Nightman Cometh, in which Mac takes on the role, donning all black with cat eye lenses and elaborate black make up.
So, of course I wanted to create that- I haven’t stopped singing the song since I first watched the episode! I used my normal face routine before using a liquid liner to re-create the eye make up. It’s the perfect unisex look and with no mascara and minimal effort required, this one is perfect if you’re looking for something abstract yet easy.
Well if you hadn’t already figured out I’m a weirdo, I’m pretty sure you’ll know now, hehe! Niche Halloween can be super fun and a great alternative if you aren’t a fan of classic looks. I like to try them out from time to time to try something different. My tip for this look is make sure you lightly draw out your outline and make sure you’re 100% happy before filling it all in.
If you haven’t seen Always Sunny yet, shame on you, it’s on Netflix and there’s a full 12 seasons to feast on, off you go then….
And if you haven’t even heard the Dayman song, MY GOD! here’s a wee clip.
Do you like Always Sunny? Have you ever dressed as something niche for Halloween?
