What Is the Demogorgon?
If you’ve heard your teen talk about it or watched the show but still don’t know what exactly this creature is, here’s a brief description. According to the official fan page for the Netflix original series, the Demogorgon is a monster from a parallel dimension that recalls a dark reflection of the world.
It became so popular that Netflix started implementing it in other series, like Sabrina, for example. Similar details can also be found in The Fall of the House of Usher, Fate (The Winx Saga), and Riverdale. So here’s how to recreate this popular antagonist.
DIY Demogorgon Costume
It is not very difficult to create this creature yourself. It’s very recognizable, so just add a few details to let neighbors know there’s a Demogorgon in the neighborhood. You need an all-black outfit and a red carnivorous flower made from paper or foam. Here are 2 easy ideas.
Halloween Costume for Adults
Michele made this costume with a black bodysuit, but you can also use leggings with a t-shirt and gloves. For the head, you can use a ski mask. To make the flower, use craft foam, because it is light and easy to modulate. Paint the petals red and use a hot glue gun to add dozens of white teeth. If your petals are too big, glue wooden popsicle sticks to the back to support them. The details of the costume, such as the ribs and nails, are also made of foam covered with hot glue to create relief. Stick them on the costume or use double-sided tape.
Demogorgon Costume for Kids
Grab some wanze pajamas for your little kid and the costume is almost complete! Use foam again to make the flower, but this time make it cuter. Make drops from white cardboard and glue them. You can also draw them with acrylic or fabric paint. To make things easier, you can glue the top petal of the flower onto a cap. Clever, isn’t it? Remnants can be added to the costume using self-adhesive Velcro. Your kid can wear the pajamas even after Halloween has passed!
