The Babadook Costume for Cosplay & Halloween
The frightening thing about Mister Babadook is not what he looks like (although that’s also creepy in its own sense), but what he represents. He is your fears manifested into a physical form. He doesn’t try to kill you outright which is what typical monsters would do.
Instead, he makes you second-guess yourself and slowly help you succumb to insanity. Babadook strips away your humanity until you do inhumane things that you would typically never do.
The Babadook loves lurking in the shadows, and his appearance just makes it almost impossible to discern him in the dark. The Babadook wears an all-black ensemble. He has on a black trench coat, black pants, black top hat, and black shoes.
Plus, he sports long black hair and equally long black fingers. Here’s everything you need to look like the Babadook.
