Sexy Freddy Krueger DIY costume

1. SWEATER – We start with his instantly recognizable red and green striped sweater. This accessory already comes lightly ripped but we recommend – carefully – cutting some additional holes to make it just a touch more revealing.

2. GLOVE – Of course, any Freddy outfit needs his signature murder weapon; a homemade glove with knives affixed to each finger.

3. HAT – This dedicated brimmed Freddy hat is already worn and beaten from haunting your victims’ dreams.

4. FISHNETS – We have to wonder, if Freddy looked this good in a pair of fishnet stockings, would things have worked out differently for him?

5. BOOTS – This costume is perfect for a pair of heavy-duty boots. Freddy was a janitor, after all.

6. MAKEUP – Optionally, the officially licensed Freddy makeup set can really ramp up the horror side of this look, at the expense of that more sexy-chic aesthetic.

7. FAKE BLOOD – Finally, apply some fake blood to your face and sweater. That’s it girls, time to haunt them dreams!



Freddy Krueger is the main antagonist in the “A Nightmare on Elm Street” horror franchise. Created by Wes Craving, the original movie was released in 1984 and has spawned multiple sequels, spin-offs, and remakes.

Freddy was originally depicted as a child killer who escaped justice before being burned alive by vengeful parents seeking revenge. In late adaptations, Freddy was shown as a peculiar though innocent man who was wrongly targeted.

He prefers to torture his victims by infiltrating their dreams and killing them there. And as everyone knows, if you die in your dreams, you die in the real world.

Distinctive for his homemade knife glove, which he uses as his main murder weapon, and severely burned face, Freddy Krueger is a classic costume idea for Halloween.
