The Perfect Last Minute Halloween Costumes

The Perfect Last Minute Halloween Costumes


Ok, own up. Who’s left it last minute to organise a killer Halloween costume? Well, call us your fairy god mother if you will, because we’re here to help, and lucky for you, these Halloween outfits don’t suddenly change after midnight. In fact, that’s when they’re at their spine-tingling best….


We’ve picked out three of our absolute favourite Halloween characters, and pieced together the foundations of an outfit form the Nobody’s Child range to get you going. And what’s more, these particular characters will not only have you looking scarily stylish, with their fashion forward get-ups, but will guarantee you don’t end up having a Lindsay Lohan Mean Girls moment…


Lydia Deetz, Beetlejuice


Lydia Deetz, from cult nineties film Beetlejuice, is the quintessential ‘Nobody’s Child.’ She’s smart, sexy and confident, and definitely ‘ain’t scared of no ghosts.’


Typically dressed head-to-foot in lace, she’s the perfect excuse to rock this season’s must-have ‘co-ord’ look this Halloween, with our Black Lace Pencil Midi Skirt and matching Lace Turtle Neck Top


All that’s left for you to do then, is throw on a pair of black tights, black gloves, black sunglasses and a black fedora hat, or in other words, all black EVERYTHAAAANG, and your Halloween costume’s good to go! But whatever you do, don’t say Beetlejuice – well, not three times anyway…

Cruella De Vil, 101 Dalmations


As the Disney song goes, ‘Cruella De Vil, Cruella De Vil, if she doesn’t scare you, no evil thing will.’ Pretty apt for Halloween if you ask us. And we’ve got to hand it to the fashionable old bird, she’s absolutely bang-on-trend. From the LBD, to the fur jacket, to the #GreyHairDontHair, she could definitely give Anna Wintour a run for her money!


But as well as being timelessly stylish, Cruella also makes for an incredibly effective yet ridiculously easy Halloween costume. Take our Black Bodycon Dress, our Ombre Shaggy Fur Free Jacket, and chuck on a pair of red high heels and there you have it. Not only ready for Halloween, but for the fashion catwalk, too. And what’s more, no puppies harmed!

Bellatrix Lestrange, Harry Potter


We’d be lying if we said there wasn’t a small part of us that wanted the ever stylish Bellatrix to come out victorious from the whole death-eater/school teacher showdown.


From the crazy back-combed hair, to a set of eyebrows that would rival Caras, we love everything about Bellatrix, but it would have been nice if she could have spared poor old Sirius…


But what’s done is done, and all that. She rocks the goth-luxe look, and with our Black High Neck Lace Bodycon Dress, you can, too. Simply accessorise  it with some laddered tights, long gloves, knee high lace boots, and a wand, and you’ll look positively…bewitching!
