Outfit Inspiration for Halloween

Halloween is officially a week away and I can't wait! When I was a kid I used to love going trick or treating even though I was a massive wimp (still am) but hey the sweets were worth it. I have always loved fancy dress too and Halloween is the best time of year for it so me and the boyfriend always try and wear couple costumes for example in 2014 we went as pirates and last year we dressed as zorro and elena.

For the pirate costume I just ripped a black bodycon skirt, purchased a cheap waistcoat on ebay and cut up some red fabric plus I already had a white shirt. The Elena costume was off ebay and I admit I didn't look very scary.

This year I am going to dress up a skeleton as Johnny Loves Rosie kindly gifted me this Skeleton Face Tattoo £12 which looks fab and so easy to apply, no faffing with loads of make up. Along with this I am going to wear a black chocker also from Johnny Loves Rosie, black leggings and top with a white t-shirt, tie this skeleton tinsel around me from pound land and wear a black headband from New Look. If you don't want to spend too much money on an outfit like me just have a rummage through your wardrobe.

More Halloween Inspiration

Here in the UK shops selling Halloween outfits and accessories has really increased over the years including supermarkets and online fashion websites so there is lots more to choose from and at a decent price too. Below are some of my favourites all under £12!

What are dressing up as this Halloween?
