Top craziest Halloween costumes
There was a time when Halloween just meant buying a Scream mask, wearing a bin bag and smearing some tomato ketchup on your hands. Nowadays, Halloween costumes have become about more than just pound shop poltergeists, and keeping your outfit up-to-date and fresh is more important than ever. Here, Hallmark Hotels gives you some tips for Halloween costumes that will blow your friends away.
One of the most recognisable images from the last 12 months is undoubtedly the one that ‘broke the internet’. When Kim Kardashian balanced a champagne glass on her behind, she probably didn’t imagine it would be fair game for Halloween costumes in October. However, according to the fashionistas at wishi.com, recreations of the Paper Magazine cover will be one of the hottest sights on October 31. How you choose to recreate the shot might take a bit of imagination, but we can promise it will go down a storm if you get it right.
One of the biggest celebrity stories of 2015 has been the ongoing fallout from Jeremy Clarkson’s altercation with one of the crew of Top Gear. Clarkson has never been one to shy away from kicking other people when they’re down, so it seems he is a fair target for some gentle ribbing. How do you sum up the story in one outfit? How about Jeremy, wearing some boxing gloves, carrying the jobs section of a newspaper? It’s an idea even Clarkson would have to chuckle at.
The England Rugby team
With all the hope and expectation that precedes any England World Cup campaign, you can only smile at the England boys failing quite spectacularly in front of their own fans. One of the strengths of the English people is being able to laugh at themselves, and there is ample opportunity for good Halloween costumes here. One idea might be to combine a turkey costume with an England rugby shirt. That should send a message that’s easy enough to understand.
The General Election
The 2015 General Election result threw up one of the most surprising results of recent times, a result that saw the end of many party leaders. If you’re feeling political, this is a great target for your costume. Perhaps the best way to really get this right is to get some friends involved, and get dressed up a political leader, perhaps using your imagination to give it a twist. Get the colour of your tie right, and this is a costume that will please satirists everywhere.
Weston-Super-Mare was put firmly on the map by Banksy this year, with his ‘bemusement’ park, a true antidote to the glitz and glamour of Disneyland. With a cast of ‘entertainers’ that included dead Cinderellas and grumpy employees with Mickey Mouse ears and bright pink high visibility jackets, Banksy created one of the most recognisable sights of 2015 at his latest project. Channelling some of his anarchic spirit could just land you one of the most unusual and current Halloween costumes this year.
