Halloween Goes From Spooky To Saucy!

AI Re-Imagines 13 Classic Horror Characters As Lingerie

Belle Lingerie19 October 2023

Spooky Saucy Skeletons!

Halloween is just around the corner and to celebrate our Horror and Halloween classical characters, we’ve taken advantage of the online AI art generator Nightcafe

 

Halloween has been a traditional part of human history for over two thousand years, and its origins can be traced back to the Celtic spiritual festival of Samhain. Samhain translates as ‘end of summer’, and that’s the time of year when folk from every circle would dress up in costumes and masks in order to disguise themselves from harmful spirits.

 

Since then, the celebration has evolved, with many new traditions being added over the years that now seem irreplaceable to us in the modern era. After all, what’s Halloween without trick-or-treating and pumpkin carving?

 

Nevertheless, dressing up in scary costumes is still very much a vital part of Halloween celebrations, so below are our top 13 spooky outfit ideas! Reader beware: film spoilers are included from here on out!

Alien

A futuristic interstellar take on a two-piece, this outfit draws from iconic spaceship designs from an array of sci-fi horror films - in particular the Alien franchise. 

This horror film series is based around humanity in the distant future encountering a parasitic alien species known as the Xenomorph. 

Freddy Krueger

Our generated look really takes inspiration from the gruesome gore associated with the horror series Freddy Kreuger originates from, A Nightmare on Elm Street. Regarded by some as the most evil Halloween antagonist, this twisted killer is a malevolent spirit who kills his victims in their dreams.

In the 2010 remake of the classic film, he is defeated, but not destroyed, by the film franchise’s heroine Nancy Holbrook, which has left the possibility open for him to return in another film adaptation.

Jason Vorhees

This look evokes the infamous fictional camp killer with an imposing red two-piece bikini. 

 

Another classic horror film character, Jason is from the ever unforgettable Friday the 13th franchise. Thought to have been the villain of the original film, it is later revealed that the killer in the first movie was in fact his mother. However, in the following two sequels, a vengeful Jason features as the main antagonist, reprising this role from the fifth instalment onwards.

Dracula

Based on the title character from Bram Stoker’s classic novel, this lacy look really emphasises Dracula’s animal representation: a bat. 

Often depicted as a villain in film and television adaptations, Dracula is a tragic character whose very nature leads to his isolation from humanity. His desire to exist amongst the living is juxtaposed against his predatory nature throughout.

Jack Skellington

This stunning set invokes the swirls that are synonymous with Tim Burton’s work, particularly the classic Halloween/Christmas film The Nightmare Before Christmas.

The movie features Jack Skellington, the mayor of Halloween Town, who becomes disillusioned with Halloween and decides to take over Christmas instead by kidnapping Santa Claus and taking his place. While it isn’t the scary movie some might expect from its title, this 1993 film is iconic and enduring, with the protagonist Jack continuing to be a character who resonates with audiences of all ages. 

The Joker

It isn’t Halloween without seeing at least one Joker or Harley Quinn! This corset draws its inspiration from the classic crazy comic villain The Joker. With a particular focus on the villain's colour palette, this outfit makes use of the bustier design often used in superheroine and villainess designs. 

The Joker first graced the pages of the first-ever official Batman comic book Batman #1 in April 1940. He was the criminally insane antagonist of the already established Batman who made his debut in Detective Comics issue #27. Since then the Joker has been a regularly appearing villain in both the Batman franchise and other DC Comics series. The character has ranged from a psychotic, sadistic criminal mastermind to a harmless prankster to a twisted, tragic, sympathetic villain and back again over the years.

Leatherface

This ensemble leans into the stitched leather aesthetics of the horror character it is based on, with a fishnet-inspired face covering to really bring out the character imagery.

Perhaps a horror villain with more sinister origins, Leatherface is from the The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise which was loosely based on the true events of the gruesome Ed Gein murders. This prominent feature of pop culture history has had nine films, a series of comics, a novel and two video game adaptations in its time. Its most recent film adaptation, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, was released in 2022.

Frankenstien’s Monster

This time, it’s not a killer but the undead who are the inspiration for this ribbed bralette and tied-bottoms two-piece! Stretch marks and scars are in style with this green set!

Frankenstein’s monster is known for being the original literary sci-fi “monster”. Mary Shelley’s iconic character has had many incarnations, from the creation of Victor Frankenstein in her novel of 1818  to the doubting dad in Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School to the curious but tormented “creature” in Penny Dreadful. As one of the central characters of the very first science fiction novels, Frankenstein’s monster is a character that has been continuously reinvented over the years and portrayed by a multitude of actors and voice actors.

Winifred Sanderson (Hocus Pocus)

Sometimes all you need is a little magic! This stunning one-piece is inspired by the ever-iconic Winifred Sanderson. In this sleeved bodysuit which emulates the 1600s-inspired costumes that the Sanderson sisters wear, you’ll just be waiting for a virgin to light the black-flamed candle on a Halloween with the full moon!

The Mummy

This wrapped one-piece look gives off the texture of ancient bandages, with the details of ancient symbols! Ancient Egypt feels like it’s one incantation away from waking up with this attire!

Before it was a comedic action-adventure film, The Mummy was a 1932  supernatural horror film. Mummies have played a part in literature since the 1800s, with the supernatural romance fiction The Mummy's Foot by Théophile Gautier. Since the debut of the 1932 film, mummies have also been an integral part of the horror genre.

Pennywise

This twisted clown of demonic origins has inspired this simple but chic pom-pom design. 

As the main antagonist from Stephen King’s infamous book It, Pennywise is a shape-shifting creature who preys upon children and adults alike in the town of Derry, Maine. A fearsome horror villain, Pennywise prefers to terrify his prey before killing and feeding on them before entering into a 27-year-long period of hibernation.

Morticia

This bodysuit draws style and influence from the ever-dreadfully iconic Morticia Addams. Based on the stunning and imposing matriarchal figure of the Addams family, this lacy bodysuit gives off a gothic and empowering feeling.

Morticia Addams’ first incarnation comes from a 1930s cartoon for The New Yorker magazine. She might not be a horror antagonist, but she certainly inspires spookiness and provides the perfect gothic aesthetic.

Jekyll and Hyde

This two-piece brings everything you need for a dark and decrepit look, with an emphasis on the dark and villainous aesthetics of Mr. Hyde as opposed to the clinical Dr. Jekyll! This outfit takes full advantage of the description of “wrong” used to describe the twisted second half of the good Dr. Jekyll. 

The critically acclaimed masterpiece by Robert Louis Stevenson, Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, introduces both the character of Dr. Jekyll, who is a well-respected and intelligent scientist, and his other half Mr Hyde, his equally intelligent but morally bankrupt alter ego. The iconic story was first told onscreen in a 1908 silent film and has since been remade in numerous adaptations of both the story and the characters themselves.


We hope these designs have inspired you and your Halloween costumes ahead of this year’s celebrations. Who knows, maybe you can create some of your own inspired looks using AI Art Generators!
