How to make a PocaHAUNTus (Goth Pocahontas) Costume
One of the most famous Native American princesses (who also got a Disney film of her own) is Pocahontas, daughter of Chief Powhatan. Put a gothic/spooky spin on this historical figure and make her ghost come alive with a scary version of “PocaHAUNTus.”

Putting together your PocaHAUNTus (Goth Pocahontas) costume
Step 1: Take the dark-brown suede or faux suede fabric and draw a simple dress design on the fabric, but make it with only one sleeve. The length should be no longer than mid-thigh. Cut the brown-suede fabric out, following your pattern.
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.
