Freshly carved pumpkins are slowly starting to pop up in windows across the world, random kids have started knocking on your door for sweets but you only have a half-empty bottle of wine in the fridge or various types of painkiller and you’ve already been invited to more fancy dress themed events on Facebook than it’s physically possible to attend. Soon it will be Halloween and once again, you haven’t got your outfit sorted.
Here are our spooky ideas to try out last minute so that you don’t have to be that guy who tries to persuade people that they came as “an evil version of myself” or “a psychopath, they could be anyone, you can’t tell by looking” whilst dressed in their ordinary clothes. That ploy wasn’t funny the first hundred times. Trust us, even the slightest bit of effort will go appreciated.
Surely every female identifying human being has a black dress in their wardrobe and even if you don’t, we have you covered. Top it all off with a black wig, and a corpse bride kit from our stores or a deluxe rose headband.
Skeleton costumes take minimal effort and an all-black outfit is deemed the best backdrop. Use Google Images to find some creepy skull references before attempting to draw one onto your own face, or if in doubt just buy a mask in one of our stores. Pick up some Grim Reaper gloves in store or online to save time painting your hands!
There’s a reason that you see so many girls dressed as a cat every Halloween and not just because they can’t think of anything else. It’s pretty much the easiest costume to pull off and would usually take less than a minute to execute. All you really need to do is wear all black, procure some liquid eyeliner or black face paint and carefully dash three lines across each cheek and colour in the end of your nose. We have a super easy cat costume kit that includes some pointy ears available in store.
Becoming a zombie for Halloween is arguably the easiest to pull off, all it takes is a little brains. Dig out your most worn looking outfit from the depths of your bedroom, rough them up a bit more and then do the same to any visible flesh. Darken the bags around your eyes using some makeup, finishing the look off with some fake blood and latex scars from one of our stores.
Here’s one for those who don’t want to be overly gothic this Halloween. Whilst this white rabbit look may be cute to some, it’s terrifying for the most of us! The key to this look is wearing as much faux fur as possible. Hop along to one of our shops for one of our realistic looking masks to complete the transformation.
