You’re dressing as a beefeater for Halloween? BIG WOW. Here are seven far more original ideas based on modern London horror stories.
You will need: a cardboard box painted grey and covered in chewing gum, a flame-coloured wardrobe.
You will need: a classic spider fancy dress costume with a banana stuck to each limb.
You will need: a large cardboard box covered in tinfoil. Pipe cleaner antennae. Several melted toy cars on a string around your neck.
You will need: a cardboard beak with sharp looking teeth, many white feather boas, a friend dressed as a mauled pigeon.
5. The bed-desk
You will need: a duvet with an entire stationery set stuck to it.
6. A super-ant
You will need: a papier-mâché ant costume (we never said this was going to be easy) with electrical goods stuck to the body. Or just hang out by the microwave all night.
You will need: a cardboard box, cut to look like a cage, with the Waterstones logo stuck on. Bonus points if you bring a book.
