Five Nights at Freddy’s Costume Ideas
The wait for Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 is over! Originally slated for a tentative release around Halloween 2015 (it is a survival horror game, after all), one-man development team Scott Cawthon surprised everyone by releasing the game on Steam early.
In the original game, the premise is that the player is a new night shift security guard working at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, a children’s theme restaurant complete with animatronic mascot characters. Freddy Fazbear and his friends Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy are left turned on at night to “prevent their motors from locking up.” Seems like an easy gig, but if one of the characters finds a human during the off-hours, it tries to stuff it inside one of the robotic shells, killing the victim.
So, the object of the game is to survive, literally, five nights at Freddy’s. The game and its two sequels have become viral cult hits on the Internet, thanks to YouTubers and Twitch streamers recording their gameplay and, naturally, exaggerated jump-scare reactions.
How to make a Five Nights at Freddy’s Costume
With the fourth and final (or is it?) installment of the game available, Five Nights makes a great theme for Halloween costumes. To make your own DIY Freddy Fazbear costume, there are a few key components to keep in mind:

Freddy and the other animatronic animals typically don’t wield axes or other weapons, but an eyeless demon teddy bear costume will get the point across well enough either way. Or, just go for the mask.
For an even easier DIY Five Nights at Freddy’s costume, pair this teddy bear hat with the bow tie and top hat accessories listed above. Use some black eye makeup to create the creepy, sunken-in look of Freddy’s robotic eyes; some black face paint on your nose and cheeks will help you look like a cute teddy bear (that wants to murder people).
