The spooky season has officially begun, and Halloween is here.

If you are heading out this Halloween, whether it is for a house party or a frightfully fun night out, you’re probably wondering what costume to wear. We have worked with Uni Crew to bring to you some of the best Halloween themes to inspire you this spooky season!

Everyone loves a good movie, so why not pay homage to some of the most iconic movie characters in cinematic history!

Looking to for a show stopping solo costume? We don’t blame you, Halloween is the one night of the year where there are no rules. It sounds like goth girl Lydia Deetz is calling your name.

If you need a costume but are also planning on dancing all night… we have the answer with this instantly recognisable Georgie costume, from IT Chapter 2. It’s lightweight and completely fuss free!


2) Low Cost Costumes!

We get it… you’re a student and the majority of your budget for Halloween is allocated to the actual night out, not the costume. So here are some options for those that want to make sure they’re not limited at the bar!

3) On Trend Costumes

David and Victoria Beckham

Everyone is obsessed with David and Victoria Beckham right now because of their recent Netflix documentary. They have so many iconic looks from over the years… their all leather, all denim ensembles are really easy to get together, just by digging around in your own wardrobe. Grab these Posh Power Wig and Boy Band Wig to add some comedic effect and you’ll be the best dressed at any event you attend.



Do we even need to say anything else…Why not add a little pink to this year’s Halloween costume. Everyone loves Barbie & Ken it wasn’t the biggest trend of the year for no reason! Plus, barbie and Ken makes an absolutely iconic couples costume that anyone will love.



If your plans include a big night out for the 31st October, you may want a costume that’s a bit more risqué and stylish. That’s where our Fever Collection of costumes comes to the rescue!

These cheerleader costumes are perfect for a girl gang looking to stir up some trouble on a night out together!

If you are looking to keep things a little more traditional, choose one of these stylish costumes for many of the classic Halloween characters.
