Christmas shouldn’t have all the fun. Over the coming three weeks, and in the lead up to one of the biggest nights on our calendar, Costume Direct will be doing a countdown – rather than lords a-leaping, maids a-milking, or partridges in pear trees – of twelve of the most frightening figures in the noble and nasty tradition of Halloween.
Commencing this Monday, with one of the most prolific modern icons of the season, each weekday will feature a different character for your consideration.
These villains will come for your brains, your blood, your children, and your booty; they hide in sewers, manors, caves and the woods; but most importantly, they all look quite good. If you should find yourself at a loss for costume ideas when All Hallow’s Eve arrives, see if you can’t find inspiration in the posts that follow. They’ll leave you screaming for more...
Or, perhaps, just screaming.
