7 deadly sins costume

My sophomore year of college, my friends and I wanted to do another group costume. I came up with the idea of The 7 Deadly Sins since there were 7 of us living in a house together. After researching what each sin really was about, we assigned one to each of us and made our costumes ourselves. This is a great Halloween group costume idea for groups that have distinct personalities. The photo above is lust, pride, wrath, greed, gluttony and envy acting out their sin’s personalities. As you can see, there are only 6 sins in this photo. Sloth was too busy sleeping and being lazy to make it into the photo, but she appeared in the one below.

Here is a breakdown of our looks and how to make a 7 deadly sins Halloween costume yourself:

wrath halloween costume Nasty Gal Rebound Dress  /  Devil Horns , Tail & Bow Set  /  Stila Cosmetics Smudge Pot

Wrath: For a wrath costume, there are many options you can choose. Wrath is known to be dark and angry, so you could wear devil horns, paint your face a menacing color, etc.- just make sure you have an angry look on your face the entire night.




greed halloween costume Forever 21 Hundred Dollar Tank  /  Topshop Sequin Pencil Skirt  /  Forever 21 Money Sign Necklace 

Greed: For the greed costume, I bought a cheap nightgown at Macy’s and then decorated the top and bottom with fake money. I found some tacky and glittery dollar sign earrings at Spencer’s to finish the look.




pride halloween costume ASOS Sequin Prom Dress  /  Tiara with Crystal Heart  /  MAC Lipstick in Candy Yum Yum

Pride: For a pride costume, wear your best pageant gown and tiara. Extra points if you  carry around a mirror to check yourself out in.




sloth halloween costume Vanity Fair  Nightgown  /  Target Luxury Sleep Mask  /  MUK LUKS Scuff Slippers

Sloth: Since sloth is known for being lazy and sluggish, my friend who dressed up in a sloth costume wore a nightgown, sleeping shades and slippers. Act tired the whole night for extra points.




gluttony costume ModCloth Retro Apron  /  Betsey Johnson Cupcake Earrings  /  Spiral Lollipops

Gluttony: For her gluttony costume, my friend bought a cheap apron and decorated it with all types of candy. This is one of the easiest and most fun costumes for Halloween since you can eat your costume if you get hungry!




lust costume Lavish Alice Patent Skater Dress  /  Black Hana Heels  /  NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick

Lust: For a lust costume, pick up the cutest bustier and lacy shorts in any lingerie department (if you dare). Opt for smoky eyes and a sexy red lip and don’t forget the heels!




envy costume Topshop Draw Waist Dress  /  Fergie’s Black Cruel Heeled Boots  /  MAKE UP FOR EVER Eyeshadow in Iridescent Lagoon Green

Envy: For an envy costume, make sure you wear some green- the ultimate color of envy. Wearing a plan or simple green dress gives you an easy way to be “envious” of other’s costumes, too. My friend had the creative idea of taking a piece of everyone’s costume and trying to make it her own- which is something someone who was envious would totally do! Follow everyone around all night and act crazily jealous- just pretend some girl is hitting on your boyfriend or something.

*Tip* Since sometimes it takes a while for people to understand what you are (or if you will be separated from your group during the night’s activities), wear a badge or sash with your sin’s name on it to make your costume easier to understand.

      Thanks Giovanna! This was from back in college when group costumes were easy to pull off. Now my friends are scattered all over, so it’s harder!

    This is so creative! Pulling together group costumes can be so hard, a bunch of friends and I went as Wizard of Oz last year and we had to work hard to pull it all together. This is fun and not something you see every Halloween, wishing I had a big group this year to recreate this with!

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS! Some girls I was friends with in college did this theme and made their outfits out of silky colored fabric and did crazy zombie like makeup! It was amazing and so is this!
