Halloween Idea

Thursday, 29 October 2015

Halloween is upon us everyone.

And I can truly say that I love this holiday, as it's an excuse for fancy dress. I'm currently in my mid twenties, so the opportunities for fancy dress are few and far between. So you forget how silly and fun it can be to get stuck in.

Something I don't enjoy is spending lots and lots of money on one costume that will only been worn once and then put in the cupboard to be forgotten about.


If you are going to any fancy dress events or parties, have a look in your wardrobe and see what you have. You never know where inspiration may strike!

I found this old purple suit that I bought a few years ago, which reminded me of the late Heath Ledger's portrayal of the joker (The Dark Knight is a fabulous film, btw!).

All I needed was a green tie (sourced on eBay for £1) and some face paint (Pound shop). Then you just have to throw all the elements together. 

And ta-daaa!

I have a few other halloween events to go to and just through looking at what I already have, I'm able to create some amazing costumes and spend hardly a penny.

Wherever you end up this Halloween.. Have fun!
