Halloween is right around the corner and if you’re still looking for the perfect costume then why not dress up like a spy? Just look at the advantages. You can change looks multiple times in one night because which means that means you can get candy from the same house without them noticing. If you really want to know how to dress like a spy for Halloween then acquire these necessary items:


Get a lot of wigs .Take a cue from our favorite spies Elizabeth and Philip and start hoarding wigs. You should have at least 3 to 5 hair pieces preferably in different colors and forms. You can have blonde, brunette, red headed, or an afro. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can also try a bald cap.

Make Up

Simple make up can improve your costume greatly. Spies are known to hide in plain sight, but they can also look stunning if the mission requires it. So before you head out, apply foundation on your face to have an even skin tone. Put eye makeup and lipstick, depending on the look you’re going for. You can also take it up a notch by applying a scar that would accentuate your appearance. You can also put a mustache, a beard, and a soul patch. Side burns are optional. Remember, the devil is in the details.


A spy’s number 1 objective is to always blend in with the surroundings. So if you’re going to a heavy metal concert, you should wear black clothing, apply fake tattoo, and have spiky hair. But since its Halloween you don’t need to blend in. You can wear anything you want as long as it suggests a hint of being a spy. Usual choices are trench coats with a hat, slacks, and leather shoes. You can also class it up by wearing a suit ala James Bond and holding a martini all throughout the night, an Ashton Martin can also help. For women, you can wear a black dress, a simple necklace, and nice stilettos. Or if you want something really sexy, put on black tight spandex and match it with black leather boots and gloves. You can also emulate Philip and Elizabeth by wearing 80s mom and dad clothes.

Mix and Match

As I said, the beauty of dressing up like a spy is you can have different outfits all throughout the night. You can mix and match certain clothes with wigs, mustaches, and different accessories like binoculars, toy pistols and what not. And lastly, have fun and go easy on the candy.
