Need a time-consuming but simple last minute costume? Cover your face in googly eyes. I saw the concept executed recently in a Facebook video and was inspired to look for tutorials. This one from Koolnoodles24 covers the topic pretty thoroughly. Googly eyes are inexpensive and come in a variety of sizes, and you can find them everywhere from the dollar store to the craft store. All you have to do to attach the googly eyes is use liquid latex. It will take a while — and will probably take a while to remove them too — but the look is creepy and perfect. You could pair it with an entire costume (a dress covered in googly eyes would be amazing) or just a black dress or suit.
