You do not have to purchase a fancy dress costume to look fantastic on Halloween. Sometimes it is possible to find a few pieces at your normal shopping destination. Here is my example that will hopefully encourage you to look around for unique outfits. And since you put it together yourself there is no danger of someone arriving to the party wearing exactly the same costume.
I remembered that this summer feathers were very popular during the festival season, so I decided to look for a native American looking head piece and create an outfit around it. After a quick search I came across this wonderful Elmstone Peacock Feather Crown on http://www.pretaportobello.com available for £38. And a browse through Asos for anything ‘fringe’ revealed a few pages of results, my favourite of which is this Reverse Kaftan at £55.
So after deciding which of the available trends I can covert into a Halloween costume it did not take long before I was ready for the party. And with these types of outfits – you can wear individual pieces more than once! Also if you find yourself the only dressed up person in the room, by simply removing the head piece you turn from the Queen of Halloween to fashionista – especially with this techno-ethnic print kaftan.
Set your imagination free!

Let me start by clarifying – Trashy is an amazing lingerie and sexy fancy dress brand from Los Angeles. I fell in love with their costumes while getting ready for last year’s Halloween when I stumbled across their brand at Angel’s, London’s biggest fancy dress store. The costumes fit perfectly and looked amazing – I loved them so much I went to visit their store while in Los Angeles. And they did not disappoint!
Most costumes are made to order and cost around $300 (£200) but currently online it is possible to purchase already made costumes that you will receive in time for Halloween. They are also selling bargain costumes that have been imported into US but were made from the original designs. Those start at just $60 (£40).
The choice is astonishing – from birds to princesses and from maids to sailors. And the best thing about them – they are by far the sexiest Halloween costumes you can ever get your hands on (just look at all the celebrities that chose the brand). Good luck making your pick!
