Halloween is, without a doubt, the best holiday of the year. But, getting the perfect costume that will not only wow, but doesn’t break the bank, is crucial. Here are our top spooky costumes.
We’re bringing you our top costume ideas that you can make yourself or re-wear, to save money, and have the best Halloween yet.
Film and TV characters
You can’t go wrong dressing as a popular character – not only are you instantly recognisable, but you’ll also be able to incorporate some of the pieces into your everyday wardrobe.
Try something contemporary to start conversations about your favourite show or film. Flick through Netflix or Amazon Prime to remember your favourite characters and get some outfit inspiration.

Again, a great option if you want to buy clothes that you can re-wear. It’s even a good excuse to buy yourself something nice and flashy for a Christmas party later in the year.
Even celebrities dress as other celebrities, so you can’t go wrong with this one.
Head to your favourite celeb’s Instagram for some iconic looks you can recreate for a fraction of the price.
Traditionally, Halloween is a time to watch frightening films and trick-or-treat in scary costumes. Just make sure to check the dress-code of any Halloween events before turning up in your most spook-tacular outfit.
