Did you know...

The whole 'dressing up for Halloween' thing started back in ancient times, at the pagan Celtic festival of Samhain, when people danced around in costumes to scare away ghosts and evil spirits. Nowadays we dress up as the actual ghosts - as well as other spooky characters - for our 31st October parties and activities, though it's more about fun than frightening. The modern-day tradition of wearing fun costumes on Halloween is said to have started in Ireland and Scotland, where it's known as 'guising'.

Glow-in-the-dark Unisex Skeleton Costume (1-6 years) - £8

If you're scratching your skull wondering what to dress the kids up in this Halloween, this glow-in-the-dark skeleton suit is a real party piece. They're lurking in the shadows of our seasonl aisle for just £8.

Mortifying Make-up
Add a spoonful of white flour to your white face paint mix, to make the face paint thicker and less transparent, also making it last longer without rubbing off.

Family Frighteners By Nutmeg

The whole family can go Trick Or Treating as the Boo Crew in these jumpy Nutmeg jumpers. After Halloween, they're also great for adding more 'spook' to games of hide and seek in the dark at home.
