With the nights getting longer and the crunch of leaves underfoot on our way to work, October brings with it a whole new excuse to party Halloween! Team Company has put together a few spooky style ideas to get you in the mood if you're heading to a party or event this weekend - plus we've rounded up some uber-cool ideas for the weekend if you don't have any plans yet!.
So, are you stuck on what to sport this Halloween weekend? Fear not, Company HQ have the ideas (as per usual!). Spooky events being held around the UK are the perfect reason to don fancy-dress...
Scare people senseless in this Zombie Schoolgirl outfit from www.wonderlandparty.co.uk
. Just add creepy contacts in order to nail that vacant stare... a can of hairspray is always handy as well to achieve that wild zombie 'do! Or...
...if sexy is your vibe this Halloween, how about this vampish Moon Light Bite outfit from www.sparklingstrawberry.com
. This corseted number comes complete with red fibre-optic light-up skirt, sure to dazzle your fellow party-goers!
Alternatively if kitsch is more your thing, grab one of these outfits from costume company 'Kigu',literally meaning 'costumed animal character' in Japanese. Gather your mates, pick your Kigu (bagsy the pumpkin) and head on down to your nearest spooky shindig. Head to the Kigu Shop
If you love to club, spooky highlights around the UK include the End of the World bash in Brighton ('zombies coming to eat us all on the 29th? Lets lock ourselves in a club and party until we explode'), the rocking Slinkys 2011 Halloween Ball at the O2 Academy in Bournemouth, and the Classic Grand Halloween Party in Glasgow, where prizes for the best costume range from electric guitars to gig tickets to a cash prize of £500.
Or how about taking a trip to the dark side at the Shoktober Fest? Tulleys Farm in Sussex comes to life at night-time, with freaky characters and ghoulish street theatre creating atmos-fear (lols.) Boasting 6 fearsome attractions including an evil-clown maze, a 'Field Of Screams' and the new 'Hell-ements' attraction described as 'a terrifying world-first for fear', the ground-breaking Shoktober Fest is not for those with meek temperaments. Awesome!
Or maybe the fear factors not for you? A night in with mates and some delicious All Hallows Eve goodies will also go down a treat. Traditional 'pigs in blankets' become mini Mummified Corpses, 'Eyeball Martinis' are easily fashioned using a radish stuffed with green olive or getting a bit creative with icing can easily create crazy-looking cupcakes great for dishing out to sweet-toothed trick-or-treaters, after youve had 1 or 2 yourself, of course (or 3.. and a half..). You can stay snug during your Halloween bake-off Kigu costumes also lend themselves to cosy chill-outs! Wahey... definitely cooler than PJ's.
Team Company got in the halloween mood by heading to the Virgin Medias Halloween horror quiz to celebrate their new TiVo
telly box. One Marylebone in London was transformed into a haunted church where guests were served by zombies, the coat check tickets were plastic cockroaches and the dress code was 'A Hint of Horror'. Henry Holland partied with Paul Daniels, Debbie Mcgee, Chloe Madeley, Donna Air, Laura Whitmore and TOWIEs Lydia Rose Bright - check out girl band Parade's costumes here:
As well as their costume-making credentials, the Kigu crew also throw incredible parties the Monster Raving Kigu Party on the 29th October takes place in a secret East London location yet to be revealed, and with a 'No Fancy Dress, No Entry' policy, FOUR complimentary drinks for everyone who turns up before midnight, a 'Spook Yourself Zone' and some of the best London DJs working the decks, this Halloween bash promises to be a scream!
