To dress like Elvira for Halloween, you'll need the following:

1. Fake, long nails painted black.

2. A long black "Elvira" wig (not just any old wig will do, you can get a wig with a big white stripe)

3. Long, false eyelashes

4. Light powder to make skin appear white

5. Eyeliner, eyeshadow and mascara.

6. Dark red lipstick (not a bright cherry red, but a much deeper red)
