Johnny Depp has his own signature look consisting of a generous approach to accessorizing, a fedora and at least one piece of clothing that looks like it has been in his closet since the 1992. He has also played a lot of characters with iconic looks. There’s the Mad Hatter, Edward Scissorhands and everyone’s favorite pirate Captain Jack Sparrow. It is rare that you will go to Halloween party and not see someone dressed up as one of his characters. He has given us endless cosplay inspiration throughout his career.
Whether you’re looking for a costume party idea or you just love makeovers, check out the makeup tutorials on how to recreate Johnny’s most beloved characters:
1. Mad Hatter, Alice In Wonderland
The Cheshire Cat is a popular Halloween costume, but you can’t go wrong when you dress up as the Mad Hatter. The green contacts complete the look but if you do the makeup and wear a jaunty top hat, they aren’t necessary.
2. Jack Sparrow, Pirates Of The Caribbean
They’re making a new Pirates Of The Caribbean, so you should perfect this look before everyone is doing it again. Even if you don’t want the facial hair, you will still want to know how to create the perfect Jack Sparrow smokey eye for everyday.
3. Edward Scissorhands, Edward Scissorshands
Edward Scissorhands is one of our favorite goth icons. Who else looked as beautiful in leather and dark lipstick as him? If you’re dressing up in the full Edward outfit, don’t choose anything too sharp to recreate the hands.
4. Sweeney Todd, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street
Lots of people want to copy Mrs. Lovett‘s look but did she have the black and white hair that Sweeney Todd had? Nope. Once you’ve mastered the makeup, learn a few of the film’s songs.
5. Willy Wonka, Charlie And The Chocolate Factory
Willy Wonka is one of the more subtle transformations. They key to nailing this look is getting your accessories right.
6. Barnabas Collins, Dark Shadows
Another Tim Burton movie, another Johnny Depp character whose look we wanted to copy. If you’re going to copy more than one character on the list, you might want to consider buying the white face paint in bulk.
7. Johnny Depp
If you don’t want to be Edward Scissorhands or Captain Jack, you can transform yourself into Johnny. You may not be able to make a living as a Johnny Depp impersonator, but at least you can bring out your fedora again.
