This post is all about How to a DIY Black Swan Halloween costume.
One of my favorite DIY costumes to date is the Black Swan which was super quick and easy to create. Below is a side by side of the inspiration image and the DIY Halloween costume I created.
The hardest part was the makeup but I included the youtube tutorial for you to follow. The first step in the process is to order all the resources from Amazon to recreate this costume yourself.

When my friend Karla suggested I be the Black Swan for a Halloween Party I fell in love with the idea.
Naturally, I googled and YouTubed “How To” DIY my Halloween costume.
I found a makeup tutorial online and also a YouTube video.
How To Make A Black Swan Costume:
1. Black Crystal Tiara
There are many key pieces to the Black Swan Halloween costume. One of the most important pieces is the Black Swan tiara which is a signature piece of the design.
Make sure you have a black rhinestone crown so you get the full effect of this sleek Halloween costume idea.
2. Feather Shrug Shawl
There are two ways to approach the feathers at the bust of the corset. You can either give the illusion of the look by wearing this feather shrug shawl.
The other option would be to get creative and sew the shawl pieces at the top of the corset.
For the costume, I created you can see I attached feather trim at the top edge. If you don’t have sewing skills don’t worry because it was done by hand so you can totally do it!
Below is a closeup of how that came out.
3. Shapewear Body Briefer
For the bustier top, there are also two options here. You can go for the full-body shapewear or the crop top bustier.
Either one will get the same effect it just depends on whether you want to full coverage or a more sexy vibe.
4. Bustier Crop Top
Here is the more sexy bustier crop top for those after that look. The bustier top I made was technically a crop top but with the tutu’s and shorts, I did have full coverage.
The great part of this costume is the bustier is very flattering and slimming.
5. Yoga Shorts
Depending on whether you want to invest in your shorts or not there are two options. The yoga shorts are less expensive than the Nike shorts below. If you are wearing them once go for these.
Personally, I like to wear spandex shorts under dresses and skirts. Either one will do the job of giving you the coverage you are after.
6. Nike Performance Shorts
Our family is definitely a fan of Nike pros which can be a bit pricey. The game shorts above are in between the price of the yoga shorts and Nike pros.
7. Black Swan Tutu Bubble Skirt
This tutu is longer than the layered tulle tutu skirt below. In the costume, I designed I actually wore two different tutu’s which is why it looks so full.
If you need tutu’s in other colorways there are so many to choose from in this style.
8. Layered Tulle Tutu Skirt
This is a shorter Black Swan tutu style so I would definitely wear the spandex shorts underneath. This is a must-have for the black swan costume to be authentic so make sure you have a tutu in your design!
9. Ballet Shoes
In the movie, the Black Swan has ballet shoes on so these flats will help recreate that look. Remember it’s all about the illusion and vibe of the costume not being exact.
One bonus to this costume is your feet won’t hurt during the long night of dancing with these bad boys.
10. False Eyelashes
Fake eyelashes are another must to recreate the look of the black swan Halloween costume. Get the lash adhesive so your lashes don’t fall off during the party.
11. White Eyeliner
The white eyeliner is used to add the whisk lines to your eyelids. Be sure to watch the youtube tutorial for helpful tips.
12. Mac Lipstick
Red lipstick is part of the vibe of the black swan costume. Make sure you complete the look with this red mac lipstick!
13. White Cream-to-Powder Foundation
You’ll need to make your face white to get the full effect. This goth white cream to powder foundation will do the trick.
If you have sensitive skin like me just wash it off as soon as you get home from the party!
14. Black Gel Eyeliner
You’ll need a black gel eyeliner to recreate to eye makeup look. Don’t be nervous just check out the black swan makeup video linked below.
15. Black Liquid Eyeliner
You may have your own version of this black liquid liner which can be used. If not the link above will help you complete the look.
16. Opaque Tights
Even though the tights are opaque I still wore the black shorts over them. Personally, I feel more confident knowing I’m fully covered.
Black Swan Makeup Tutorial:
Here is the black swan makeup tutorial I mentioned above. I literally watched this the night of the party and was fine recreating the look.
You can practice but it is probably not necessary at all.
Below are both sides of the way my makeup came out. As you can see I was able to get the vibe of the costume.
I tried to follow the move cover as much as possible. If you have a friend it would be helpful if they applied your makeup for you. I did not have that luxury so I did the black swan makeup myself.
Not bad considering I just went for it without a practice run. I put my hair in a bun, threw on the black tiara, and ballet flats to complete the look.
Honestly, the hardest was the makeup and that was pretty easy.
Here’s a picture of my husband and me during the Halloween Party.
Bonus Robber Halloween Costume:
If you need a super easy Halloween costume for men this is it. My husband was a robber which is so easy to recreate. If you have a pair of black pants that is one less item you will need to purchase.
Robber Costume DIY
You will only need 5 items to recreate the look of this fun Halloween costume for men. The only prop you will need is the loot money bag.
For the robber costume hat you can choose between the newsboy or skull options. Either one will give you that classic robber vibe.
The zorro mask is a must-have for an authentic Halloween robber costume. The last two components are the stripe black and white top and the black pants. If you already own the pant just use what you have.
That’s all you need. Super simple right?!
That’s a wrap on this quick DIY Halloween costume post. I hope this gave you ideas and inspiration for your next Halloween party.
Have an awesome day full of Unicorns and Rainbows!
