Can you believe we were nearing the middle of September all ready? With time flying, it is time to start thinking about Halloween.
Although there is still a way to go, you can never prepare for Halloween too early. Costumes can sell out quick, so avoid disappointing your little one by securing their fancy dress costume early.
Here are a selection of the best, and the scariest, costumes for your little monster this year…
Witches and Wizards
Nothing screams Halloween more than a witch or wizard costume.
There is a great range of witches and wizards costumes on the market this year, but make sure you finish off the look properly. Black and purple stripy tights are a must for all wicked witches, while your wizard can’t be without his wand, which sometimes isn’t included in the costume pack.
If your child is Harry Potter mad, paint a red scar on their forehead and find some round spectacles to transform them into the Hogwarts legend.
As a witch’s sidekick, the black cat is a simple but effective costume.
Dress your child all in black, and paint on a black nose and whiskers. Complete the look with ears and a tail, and you’ll be left with a scarily fab feline.
The cat costume works great if you have two children, as one can be a witch and the other can be a cat, making a terrifying twosome.
You can find a great cat costume, as well as a host of other children’s fancy dress, from Frojos.
If you want to do Halloween on a budget this year, dressing your child as a zombie is the way to do it. You can create a believable zombie costume simply by cutting up your child’s old clothes.
Making the costume will be a fun way to spend quality time with your children, while getting creative too.
Invest in some fake blood and scars for a gore fest that will have your kids and their friends mesmerised.
However, be warned – fake blood has a tendency to go everywhere. If you should get any on your non-zombie clothes, this website offers some great tips for removing the fake blood stain.
