It’s not every day you get to shake off your ordinary identity for something spooky and grotesque. Apart from when you’ve got a hangover, of course. Lulz.
In fact, Halloween is the one day of the year when it’s socially acceptable to splatter yourself in fake blood and munch on an unearthly amount of confectionery, so it’s important to make the most of the opportunity by choosing unique, handmade costumes that’ll get you on the best-dressed list.
Here are three frightfully fabulous fancy dress looks for the Halloween party scene…
If you want to look genuinely gruesome for Halloween, pick some pop art-style accessories and then throw everyone off guard with a frighteningly realistic prosthetic zombie bite. Who’s hungry for brains?
Create your very own Frankenstein’s monster by combining a mishmash of peculiar body parts: from fangs to fur to extra peepers. You’ll need some fairly ferocious skills to hold onto your spooky-themed cocktails with those claws, though.
Forget the body glitter; for a truly terrifying vampire you need to look to Victorian gothic tales for inspiration- think lace, capes and high necklines. And if iPhones were around in the 19th Century, you can bet that Dracula would use this fang-decorated phone case.
