Or if you fancy something a little bit different we reckon we can help you find the perfect outfit for the occasion, from horror movie characters to twisted fairytale favourites, we’ve got it all.
Fancy Dress for Girls
For little girls, friendly pumpkins, cats and witches work well. As they get older accessorize costumes with wigs, make-up and accessories to make them freakier. For the very young, a simple tutu will make them feel part of the dressing-up fun. Devils and lady vampire costumes are great for older girls.
Fancy Dress for Boys
For toddlers and little ones, costumes that are easy to move around in, which aren’t too terrifying and don’t have too many elements are perfect. Think skeleton suits or vampire costumes for younger boys, or even something familiar yet unrelated to Halloween, such as a Pirate. Choose ghouls, werewolves and zombies for older boys as these can be altogether scarier. Perhaps they want to dress as a particular character, in which case The Joker, Frankenstein and Voldemort are ideal.
Teenage Fancy Dress
At this age, their friends can probably stand a bit more spooking, so costumes for the boys are more likely to include creepy masks and gloves. Meanwhile, the girls want to look good in teen witch, teen devil and zombie pop star looks, paired with lots of make-up and hairspray or wigs.
Women’s Fancy Dress
It’s time to let your imagination run wild. Adult fancy dress means getting completely into the spirit and consequently the costumes have more detail to them. There are load of different witch looks to choose from, from the pretty to the pretty ugly, depending on your preference! There are plenty of ghostly-bride looks on offer, as well as devils and Vampires.
