Putting together your PocaHAUNTus (Goth Pocahontas) costume

Step 2 Attach red and black suede or faux suede to your costume around the neckline and attach several rows towards the bottom. Use fabric glue to tack it in place

Step 4: Put on a pair of boots with fringe on them.

Step 5: Add a light coat of white cream makeup to your face and any exposed skin,

Step 6: Add grey shadow beneath your eyes for a hollowed out effect and to the hollows of your cheeks for an “undead” effect. Step 7: Smear some fake blood onto your arms in a tribal pattern, add some to your legs, and put on some red lipstick.

Step 8: Strap a toy hunting knife to your leg and smear it with blood.
