I first went as this costume in the fifth grade when I had to come up with something for school that wasn’t my “sexy pirate” costume. (It was 5th grade appropriate, don’t worry.) It’s been kind of a last-minute go-to ever since, and it remains an all time fave. You can use fake blood or plain old lipstick, and mix up your blood spatter to explain your final moments.
If you’ve got five minutes, you’ve got a costume.
