Here are some ideas to help inspire you to get dressed up for Halloween this year! I love fancy dress costumes and enjoy any excuse to get silly and have a laugh with the family. 

Halloween costumes from George at Asda

Asda has a great range of costumes for adults as well as children. Some of my favourites include; Harry Potter, Frankie, Minnie Mouse witch and I love the Professor McGonagall costume. 

Harry Potter Halloween costume

Harry comes complete with outfit, wand, glasses which is good for £15. It is available in ages 5-12 years.

Boy dressed as frankenstein for Halloween
Frankie costume

This Halloween costume is amazing! So cute but also really well aligned with Halloween! It comes as a three piece costume, top, trousers and headpiece/hat. It is available in ages 1 – 6 years and costs £10.

Minnie Mouse inspired witches costume

This is so cute for girls who love Minnie Mouse but still want to dress up in a Halloween themed costume. It is a Minnie Mouse themed purple witch costume. Available in ages 1 – 6 years and priced at £14.

Lady dressed up as Professor McGonagall

Another one for the Harry Potter fans out there but this time for us adults! I love this Professor McGonagall cloak and hat priced at £22. The only thing that I do not like is the ‘one size’ label, as clearly one size does not fit all, especially for us larger ladies!

Fancy dress at The Range this Halloween

I like this as it is quite realistic for a kids Halloween costume. Great for braver kids! It is available in ages 5 – 10 years and priced at £9.99

Day of the dead skeleton bride dress

I also really like this skeleton bride costume from the Range as well. It is £9.99 and comes in size 4-8 years. It contains a veil along with the dress and is perfect for girls who want to keep some girly fun with their Halloween outfit.

What do you think? I know things are all a bit strange this year but are you still dressing up? What are your kids dressing up as? Do you have pets which you dress up too? I would love to hear about it!
