Get a Lion Face with Face Paint

Once you have bought your lion Halloween costumes for family, you will want to know how to finish off your lion look.

The best way to do this is your paint your face lion-style.

Of course, some lion costumes come with a face mask or cover part of the face, but if your costume does not, then it’s time to get the face paints out and get creative!

How to Begin

You can do the kids’ faces first, then your own in the mirror. Sponge on some white face paint down the nose and on the upper lip, then bring it out to the sides.

Use a sponge to apply beige or gold face paint to the cheeks, eyelids, and forehead, then paint black from the corner of the nose down to the outer corner of the lip and repeat this on the other side.

Finishing Off the Design

Paint the nose tip in black and make some whisker holes in black too around the mouth.

Paint curves on the outside of the face using black or dark brown paint, the underline the eyes with a dark-colored paint and sweet the lines out to the sides.

Use white paint to highlight some individual hairs and paint the lower lip red. Add white face paint to make pointed teeth.

Different Costumes to Choose From

Because there are so many types of lion costumes, you need to think about what type you are looking for. First, are you shopping for a baby, a child or an adult? If you want a costume for a small child, you will need to ensure you choose something suitable.

Babies should not wear anything with tiny buttons or parts which can come off and present a choking hazard. Some costumes are much thicker than others and if Halloween tends to be chilly where you live this can be a bonus since it will keep your child warm while outdoors trick-or-treating.

There is a wide range of adult lion costumes too, and you can go for a sexy look, a comical look, an arty look, or even combine your jewelry, accessories, and shoes with your costume to come up with something unique.

Halloween might usually be about witches, ghosts, and zombies, but why not introduce some fun in the form of a friendly lion? This would make a non-scary outfit for the kids or a fun one for yourself.

If you usually recycle the same costumes year after year, throwing a sheet over yourself to make a ghost or dressing in your favorite skeleton outfit or witch costume, then bring the fun back into Halloween this year and get one of these fun lion costumes.

You could even get them for the whole family and be a ‘pride’ of lions which you can certainly be proud of!

Interesting Lion Behavior

If you are going to dress the family up as lions this Halloween, you might like to learn a few lion facts to impress the kids.

Did you know, for example, that female lion do between 85 and 90% of the hunting while the males protect the pride and patrol the territory?

Lions like lots of contacts while they rest, with plenty of head rubbing, purring, licking and touching, although fighting and arguments often happen when there is food around. The males eat first, then the females, and finally the Cubs.

Lions spend up to 20 hours a day asleep, and the rest is spent courting, hunting or patrolling their territory.

They can roar so powerful it can be heard from 5 miles away. A ‘pride’ (family) of lions usually stays together until other males kill the males, and then the new males take over.

Nomadic Lions

Young male lions leave their pride when they reach maturity and travel as nomads for a few years before they are strong enough to take over their pride. Some keep wandering and never join another pride, but this is the more difficult option since they will not have as much time for resting.

The territorial males in pride are the fathers of the cubs. Lions usually hunt for large prey at night, although they sometimes hunt during the day too.

The lions will hunt together, as this yields a better success rate. When doing this, the lions will fan out in a semicircle shape and then stalk their prey.

They will then all run at the prey and try to knock one down. They kill it with a bite to the throat or neck and have success about half the time when hunting.

Express your interest in this fascinating animal by wearing beautiful lion Halloween costumes for the family this year and become your very own pride of lions.
