    My daughter is dressing up as a Cinder Witch… cross between cinderella and a witch, in the hunt for finding her a costume that fits her I havent looked for anything for myself. Being almost 3 she seems to fall smack between the baby themed stuff and things that are just to big. I guess I am going to have to hit the shops tomorrow or wednesday to find something a we bit spooky!

  3. Stacy Ward says:

    I’m going to be dressing up as the most scariest thing I can think of… my mum when she’s angry! It will either scare the bejesus outta you or make you collapse in sticthes from laughing!

  4. Selina Rowse says:

    I love Halloween! The kids are dressing up as Ghosts and I’m dressing up as a Ghostbuster. We are having an 80s themed Halloween party. We are making ghosts targets, bt using cardboard and spreading them around the garden. We are then getting loads of dart/ nerf guns and having a shoot the ghost contest.

    I don’t care if I look silly. Haloween is an ideal time to dress up and be peter/ patricia pan even if it is just for one night!

  5. Kuraire says:

    This will be my first time dressing up for Halloween. I’m going to go as a Pirate’s wench, My boyfriend is going as Jack Sparrow (He’s grown out his beard to give it the full effect, he has the mannerisms’ perfect already. An my Boyfriend’s brother is going as a werewolf.

  7. PAUL MARSHALL says:

    This Halloween, I am going to dress up as a zombie chav with the Burberrry cap, hoodie, bling and a load of ultra pale face paint and blackened out eyes and see if the local hoodlums get the joke, or worse still I might just blend right in! Tongue definitely in cheek there : )

    we’re having a halloween party this year, I’ve managed to pick up a grufallo costume for my 3yr old (major obsession!) a really cute bumblebee for my 2 year old (he has autism, anything too scary was out of the question) my partner will be an evil clown… he scared himself looking in the mirror, it’s a particularly freaky costume, my little boys gonna be keeping away from his daddy that night!
    And for myself, the corpse bride. I’ve managed to pick up a second hand wedding dress from a local charity shop, it had the veil with it too, i’ve used fake blood here and there and muddied it up a bit snd it looks fab. just need the perfect scary makeup now to go with it. i’ve a feeling my kids won’t think too much of this one, they’ll just think I got dirty doing the garden, lol.

  14. Jane Adair says:

    Im dressing up as a lunatic because its the only time of the year I can actually be how my family and friends think I am !

  15. Kunai Shah says:

    I’m going as Edward Scissorhands – but obviously not with real scissors/metal blades but substituted with metal kitchen utensils like a spatula and potato masher etc. Can’t wait..

  16. Phoebe Barnett says:

    im going as a ghost, with a long floaty dress and deep purple eyes! im also covering all exposed skin with white face paint which could go terribly wrong, but hey, you have to commit right? im going to practice ‘floaty’ walking to have the full effect!

  17. Laura says:

    🙁 I haven’t got a party to go to this year. My kids have a few though 🙂
    It’s homemade all the way for us this year! My daughter is going as Cruella de Ville! We will be trawling the charity shops tomorrow for something resembling a white coat for her that we can draw spots on. My son is going to be a ghost. The job for today is making a big chunky chain out of cardboard and silver spray paint; it’s all fun!

  18. Sue R. says:

  23. Claire stewart says:

    my daughter will be dressing up as medusa this year. I have attached some pipe cleaners to a headband and i will wrap her hair around them so it stands on end and then spray it witgh green hair spray, we have made some snake heads to attach to the ends. Her main outfit will be a simple long green adult size t shirt that i will fray aroun the bottom. She has green tights anf black shoes. She has a belt that we have decorated with a plastic snake. She will definately not look like just another witch!

  24. Denice says:

    Having a party and we are all dressing up as the Addams family, costumes and decorations ready to be done, so looking forward to it, I’m probably more excited than the kids. Fingers crossed this would finish party off brilliantly.

  27. Stacey Webb says:

    I was thinking of doing a Lady GaGa meat dress as apparently that’s all the rage this halloween, but I didn’t think they would stock enough bacon in tesco to cover me up so I’ve decided to go as a pumpkin instead!

  28. Rhydian Prismick says:

    Me and my partner are dressing up as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. As we are going to a party with children we don’t want to scare anyone too much, so we thought we would go as the Tweedles so we can be silly for the night.

  29. MICHELLE EVANS says:

    I am thinking of dressing up as a blow up doll (achieved by cutting the valve off of a beach ball or a swimming arm-band and attaching it to the back of my hand). The thought of me parading around in my underwear with a valve attached to my hand would undoubtedly leave everyone at the party feeling pretty horrified! LOL!!

  30. Tina Young says:

    I am going to dress up as freddie Kruger. Im going to use gelatine that will set on the face and look like burns , and paint blood in the creases! I have a stiped top, and Im going to make a glove with silver card board blades. Iv done it before for my step dad! It looks very effective. Iv just got to remember not to look in the mirror and scare myself!!!! Happy Haloween

    I dress like Elvira the rest of the year, so for Halloween I’m going as a Fawn (cloven hoofed fantasy creature).. I have the antlers sorted, hand made and ready to be stuck with spirit gum, as well as the pointed ears and the furry hoof-legs… just got to figure out what to do with the top half as I don’t think I have seen any fawns with boobies!

  42. Anne-Marie Dixon says:

    I am dressing up as a ‘Headless Man’.
    I am wearing an extra large collarless shirt, the collar stuffed with paper painted blood red. A wire coat hanger placed side ways with a sponge for my head will hold the shirt out. Four paper doilies folded and sewn in a horizontal line from the collar to give the impression of frills.Tears made in the shirt behind the frills to enable me to see,splattered with fake blood to futher disguise the holes. The underarms have had to be cut to give me room but I can still fasten the cuffs. Worn with black trousers, black boots and carrying my head which I have made out of paper mache with a fake wig.

  43. Anne Thompson says:

    I shall just be myself and open the door and dish out lots of your lovely sweets, to all those kids that come calling.

  50. HEATHER K says:

    We have been working all week on my daughters Halloween Costume, as it is half term. She is mad on spongebob square pants, and refused to be a witch or a cat, instead, she is Spongebad! We have decorated a large square box, painted it yellow and cut out holes, like a sponge. Spongebad has nasty sharp teeth dripping with blood and some bolts through his holes, and horrible wart on his nose. Scary, but its kept her amused all week.

  51. Elaine says:

    I’ll be dressing as myself….it’s usually good enough to scare the kids away! lol My own kids will be dressed as witches with the noses, nails, hair…the lot, ready to answer the door to all the trick or treaters….and we get loads!!! lol

  52. Alison says:

    I’ll be at work but we still get to dress up. I’m thinking a hairy Werewolf or something – it’s only appropriate since we’re the night shift and it’s all dark and scary 😀

  54. Goriami says:

    We’re having a zombie party, and my OH has been preparing his costume for about a month – including putting his clothes in a saucepan with cabbage so they smell awful! I will be dressing as cousin It (from the Adamms Family) as I’m not sure a baby bump goes with being a zombie so i thought i would be something which covered it?! I just hope i don’t overheat!

  55. lianne mcmurray says:
