Conan The Barbarian Halloween Costume

Updated on February 7, 2016

How To Make A Homemade Conan The Barbarian Halloween Costume

Conan the Barbarian is just one of the more well-known Barbarian Halloween Costumes you can make yourself at home. The DIY barbarian costume isn't difficult to put together with clothing you can find in your house. Most of it anyway. There are plenty of barbarian looks to choose from if this is your costume choice. They released a new Conan The Barbarian movie in 2011, it starred that hunky actor that also plays Drogo from Game of Thrones, Jason Momoa. This is another place to look for some great barbarian costume ideas and accessories.

It would seem Jason Momoa is responsible in part for a renewed interest in barbarian costumes thanks to his Game of Thrones character Khal Drogo and his Dothraki tribesmen. Jason's character, Khal Drogo, is the barbaric yet handsome and fair husband of Daenerys Targaryen. We also get to see the transformation of Daenerys Targaryen from exiled princess to Khaleesi, queen of the Dothraki people and a beautiful Barbarian women costume model.

Oddly enough, very good looking actor Jason Mamoa plays both Conan the Barbarian and Khal Drogo. That means Jason, along with the original Conan Arnold Schwarzenegger, will be the role models for this fun costume look for men, women and children! One thing both Conan characters have in common is their muscle. They are both big and brawny and this "Muscle Factor" might create a challenge for making your own costume, but don't worry, there are ways to get around the fact that your muscles aren't quite as big as Conan's and that makes this an easy homemade costume to make!

Conan The Barbarian Costume Makeup Ideas - Create The Pefect Look For Conan

Barbarians usually look pretty gross, after all, they are barbarians! Their hair is a mess, they aren't the cleanest guys on the block, so you can have some fun with costume makeup to create this look. Make yourself look dirty, unshaven, messy hair and even some blood will help make this look. You could also use some makeup tricks to help you look more muscly than you really are. Start with a good layer of fake tan the night before. When it's time to get ready for the party, use body or face paint to add more defined muscle lines to your bare chest. No, it doesn't look quite like the real thing, but it's fun for a Halloween costume! There are some easy to use Halloween makeup kits available, and there are also some beards and mustache accessories you can use...or just don't shave and let your version of Conan have a sexy 5 O'Clock shadow. Here's a big picture of the Conan barbarian wig and in it you can see the makeup ideas this company used to create a wild, barbarian look. You can also see the unshaven look close up.


Barbarian Costume Ideas

Like any barbarian Conan is a warrior. One thing that most warriors have in common is their scars. Plan on creating scars with makeup or halloween prosthetics for this warring costume idea. Barbarians are brave and since they are primitive warriors they usually don't wear much armor. So you don't have to worry about making lots of armor for your homemade Conan costume. That makes it easy to create a costume at home without too much difficulty.
