Roy Lichtenstein Pop Art

All you will need is a white eyeliner, black eyeliner, a pop of red lippy and some blue eyeshadow. Let all be honest ladies we are bound to have most of these on hand or can easily grab one from most supermarkets or beauty shops the night before. Simply scatter your face with white dots on a grid-like system. Use the black eyeliner to define your cheeks, jaw, hairline, nose, eyebrows and lips. Draw on a tear line and single tear, colour with blue. Put on your lippy and highlight with a drop of white. Pop on your favourite black dress and woolah you are done.


Who doesn’t love wearing all black? If you don’t have cat ears or the time to pop into a fancy dress shop then simply grab a few bobby pins and sculpt them out of hair. Use your eyeliner to create a cat eye, draw in your nose and whiskers. Meoooow, you are now the cats’ pyjamas. 


So put on a white top and trousers, empty out your first aid kit of all your bandages. If your first aid kit is clean out of bandages then just use loo roll with the odd safety pin to secure in place. Wrap it around to create that layered look. If you have some face paint opt for a deathly white face with black to create that Skelton look.


All you need is a black and white striped top, some black braces, a beret or a bowler hat and some face paint. There a few different ways to achieve the mime look, check out our Halloween fancy dress ideas board to see some of our favourites! It’s simple and effective.

Where’s Waldo

Get out that red and white striped top, dig out that red beanie, pop on your jeans and those glasses. If you don’t have a spare pair of specs lying around, push the lenses out of your 3D cinema classes and they will do the trick. This is also a great group hen party fancy dress costume!

wednesday adams halloween costume idea

Wednesday Adams

Who doesn’t like wearing a little black dress and pair it with a cute white collar? Plait your hair and bingo your Wednesday. Remember her statement RBF face, no need to smile and a great excuse to give everyone the stink eye. 


This is an easy last-minute costume, grab that black and white striped top. Pair it with some black jeans, gloves, hat and shoes. Make an eye mask or draw one on with eyeliner, then it’s time to make a quick swag bag out of a pillowcase! Get into character as rob some friends of some treasures! 

Mean girls – she doesn’t even go here!

Mean Girls is a classic, so it’s ok to be a little obscure with this fancy dress costume as at least a handful of people in the room would have seen it the movie over 10 times! Got a baby blue hoodie? Perfect, pull the strings tight, grab a piece of cardboard black marker and write “She doesn’t even go here!” then put on some sunglasses and the look is complete.  Or if you are a group of 4, all wear pink, mock up a burn book and say fetch a few times to complete your plastics look. After all “On Wednesday we wear pink”
