Six Kick-Ass Adult Halloween Costumes

Don’t leave all the dressing up to the kids this Halloween! The most chilling night of the year is the perfect excuse to throw on some horrifying glad-rags of your own and let your hair down, whether you’re heading out to a Halloween party or swapping your usual date night for a binge on scary movies. For some inspiration, we’ve picked six of the most kick-ass adult Halloween costumes on the market.

Ladies, you can’t go far wrong with a slinky little witch’s dress if you want to turn a few heads this All Hallows’ Eve. This dress and hat combo from Asda is ideal for parties or even the school Halloween do.

Hot on the back of the successful (re-)release of IT, clowns, jesters and jokers are going to be huge this year (if they ever fell from favour). From TopMan, this men’s classic horror clown outfit is about as creepy as they come.

For a chilling spin on a classic, women might like to don this lovely blood-spattered Zombie Malice costume from Morphsuits – Alice in Wonderland this most certainly is not, with wings, headband and blood-smeared apron all thrown in for a truly nightmarish look.

Lying somewhere between light-hearted and downright terrifying, this men’s headless horseman costume from Escapade could either raise a few laughs from your mates or raise the hairs on the back of their necks.

For something a little more on the risqué side, Escapade also have this red devil costume, which features a sequinned dress and tutu combo with devil horns and a very retro choker to complete the look. With a lick of scarlet lippie, you really could paint the town red this Halloween!

Finally, head to Very to embrace the Mexican Day of the Dead theme with this seriously spooky Señor Bones outfit. It’s available in a range of sizes, and you can pick up a face-painting kit while you’re at it to really complete the transformation.

This is probably the one night of the year when you’re completely allowed to go wild with the dressing-up box, so don’t let the kids have all the fun. Pick up one of these ghoulish get-ups and really go to town this #Halloween!
