HALLOWEEN IN STYLE

Even if the mere thought of a pair of flashing devil horns makes you contemplate life as a recluse, there are no excuses on 31 October. Halloween is the one time of year when you have to dress up, so here’s our guide to getting it right.

Faithful Fashionistas
Off-the-rack costumes won’t do – you  want an outfit that’s accurate, polished and makes you feel great. For inspiration, look to haunted style icons of the past like Marilyn Monroe and Courtney Love (in her Kurt Cobain era) or pick from the plethora of Lady Gaga fantasma. Then head to Uniqlo, New Look and H&M to find the right clothes and accessories without breaking the bank. But avoid dressing up as a Playboy bunny, super hero or schoolgirl – it isn’t sexy, no matter what Britney thinks.

Horrorphiles
This is your favourite time of year, so the scarier and grosser the costume the better. Good fake blood is at the top of the list and a quick Google search throws up hundreds of great recipes. The edible varieties that require food dye and chocolate are likely to go down best. Ripped T-shirts and shorts with a good splattering of body talc on face and limbs are the basis of a homemade zombie. Then consult a Youtube tutorial on making fake cuts and scars.

Reluctant Revellers
No matter how humorous your wit, you’ll be a social pariah if you don’t dress up for a Halloween party. Embrace the madness and it won’t be so painful. The easiest option is to remember what you wanted to be as a child and hire that outfit from a costume shop. This will ensure the least attention but also stop you from committing a serious Halloween faux pas.

TOP TIP:
Plan two weeks in advance. Last-minute costumes look last-minute for a reason.

If all else fails, rent!
