Bette Davis Baby Jane Costume

Bette Davis in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? Costume guide

For an unusual modern Gothic inspired costume, go as the macabre and maniacal Bette Davis in Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?

What you will need:

 

  • A blonde curly wig
  • White face paint
  • Red lipstick
  • Thick black eyeliner
  • Thick black lashes
  • Heavily rouged cheeks
  • A heart beauty spot
  • An old fashioned white dress with a pink ribbon around the waist.
  •  

    Optional:

     

    • A creepy life-size doll with matching hair and dress
    • Drink, lots and lots of drink

    Here's a really good video tutorial on how to achieve the Baby Jane look, although I think the foundation should be a lot paler, almost like clown makeup.

     
    This is what you are aiming for.
