True Vampire

It wouldn’t be Halloween without a vampire or two – and True Vampire is definitely one of the most iconic Halloween looks you can get. Complete with a vampire cape, all you need is a set of fangs and some fake blood trickling down the side of your mouth to finish off this chilling look.

Zombie convict

Zombies are always on our list of best Halloween costumes – you can zombify pretty much any outfit with some fake blood!

An easy costume that doesn’t need a lot of time for getting ready, make your zombie convict costume extra gruesome with fake blood and special effects wounds.

Deadly Nun

Heaven can’t help you if this deadly nun is after your head! Scary nuns are a staple of any Halloween costume, and this one can be customised a few ways – pair with some fangs for a vampire nun, an inverted cross scar for a possessed nun.

Enchanting Cat Witch

Why choose between cat and witch when you can be both in one? This sexy witch outfit has a cute cat design and comes with a witches hat, but you could up the ante with some more witchy accessories and a toy cat for your familiar.

Black and Bone Catsuit

The skeleton catsuit is an incredibly versatile costume that works just as well on its own as with accessories. Make yourself a skeleton cat with cat ears, add a Day with the Dead hint to it, or take to the skies as a skeleton bat!

Don’t forget the face paint to finish your look.
