AHHHHHH!! It’s October 1st and All Hallows Eve is beckoning closer and closer each day. Halloween is a time of mischief and fun, so I thought i’d shake things up a bit today and post a little Halloween fashion inspiration. Inspired by one of my favorite book series of all time, Goosebumps, by the wonderful R.L Stine. Goosebumps has very much so shaped me into the person I am today, the books and t.v series both terrified and fascinated me as child and their influence has stayed with me my entire life. I’ve always had a keen interest in the strange and unusual. October is the perfect month to celebrate all things weird and wonderful!
Surprisingly, a lot of people don’t like to dress up for Halloween. I for one will take any excuse to dress up in costume, but understandably it just isn’t for everyone. You don’t have to dress up as a sexy cat or a banana to get into the Halloween spirit, you just need to get creative!
Here I have chosen some colourful and quirky pieces, inspired by the Goosebumps book covers. Goosebumps book covers are always very bright, eye catching and spooky! The contrast between the funky colours makes everything pop right off the pages, so I choose this pretty purple dress, paired it with a slime green bag (VERY Goosebumps!) and spooktastic pair of eyeball shoes!
To finish off the look, creepy accessories are a must! You can find loads of fun Halloween inspired accessories for affordable prices in costume shops, retail stores and pound shops at this time of year. Eye ball earrings, spider hair clips…. the list is endless! Remember that colour is everything when creating a Goosebumps inspired look, don’t be afraid to play around with colour. A pop of bright pink lipstick or slime green nail varnish will help give you a ghoulish glow this Hallows Eve!
Whatever you wear out this Halloween, make sure you have fun with it.
You’ll be the prettiest ghoul at the party!
