If you’re into cosplaying cult classics, be sure to consider Mr. Charles Lee Ray or as he’s more widely known, Chucky. You remember him, The Lakeshore Strangler trapped inside a Good Guy Doll. If you’re interested in creating his murderously adorable look, follow this costume guide.
Chose a pair of Denim Overalls over a Striped Long Sleeve Shirt. A pair of Red Adidas Shoes will complete the clothing portion. We finished his look with a Chucky Latex Mask and a Fake Knife.
The late 80’s gifted us with the introduction of Chucky. Six movies later, and he’s more than secured his spot in horror history. To emulate his look, there are a couple of options for his face, but we’ll get to that. The costume portion of his signature look requires a pair of overalls and a long-sleeve striped shirt. Red sneakers of any kind will suffice. Accessorize with his trademark weapon of choice, a large knife, and you’re more than halfway there.
As far as Chucky’s face, you can go the easy route and pick up a mask from a local costume shop, or if you’re a more creative type you can recreate his butchered look using makeup. Looking up an online tutorial is super helpful. If you’re attempting a group cosplay, our first suggestion is Chucky’s beloved wife, Tiffany. Other options are Andy or Father Frank. Be sure to check out our featured pics for more style ideas. We welcome your submissions too . . . show us your look!
Chucky is not just every parent’s nightmare; he’s pretty much everyone’s nightmare. Granted, that should be expected when the spirit of a serial killer possesses a child’s toy. Where do we begin? Despite the outside features of a charming doll, his personality is that of Charles Lee Ray, a.k.a. The Lakeshore Strangler.
Having been shot by police and most likely afraid of where he would end up if he died, Charles Lee used Voodoo to transfer his soul into a Good Guy Doll. The doll, whose name just happened to be Chucky, goes on a murderous rampage seeking revenge on those responsible for his demise. In future movies, Chucky goes on to get married and have a son, which does nothing to curb his murderous appetite. A permanent cult classic figure, Chucky is a fixture of the horror scene. With a 2017 release of yet another movie, he will no doubt remain on the forefront of his genre.
