Freddy Krueger is the main character in the series of movies called “A Nightmare on Elm Street” in which he kills his victims in their dreams so that they also die in real life. He has a simple yet distinctive costume that makes it a favorite for Halloween. The main part of the costume requires a disfigured face mask with twisted, burned looking skin and a brown fedora hat. The costume is completed with his famous bladed glove and a striped black and red jumper or t-shirt. This costume is also great for women simply by using a black and red striped dress with the glove and hat, preferably with the dress ripped in parts as though the glove has slashed through it.
