4 things you need for a perfectly spooky Halloween

October is here: there’s a cool breeze in the air and the ground is wreathed in seasonal mists. Trees have started to shed their leaves and the days are getting shorter. In short, it’s almost time to celebrate Halloween. The most delightfully frightening festival of the year is nearly here, but how can you ensure that your Halloween experience is suitably spooky?

Whether you’re planning on throwing a party or just taking your kids trick or treating, here are four things you need to really get into the spirit of Halloween:

1. A costume

No matter how you spend your Halloween, it's important to dress up for the occasion. Halloween is the only time of year that you can unleash your ghoulish side or indulge in a strange, otherworldly persona using a costume.

Traditional Halloween costumes are usually ghostly or monstrous, like our Gothic Manor Vampire costume. However, you might also want to consider more modern costume. Some modern Halloween costumes even turn you into a character from a movie - how about a whimsical yet macabre Edward Scissorhands costume?

2. Decorations

This Halloween, we suggest making your house as spooky as you are. Surrounding yourself with high-quality Halloween decorations can help you really enter into the spirit of the holiday. Of course, if you’re hosting a Halloween party, decorations can also turn your home into the perfect venue for your guests to enjoy Halloween, too.

3. Accessories

A few simple finishing touches can elevate your costume or your Halloween decorations from ‘good’ to ‘great’. Subtle additions, like make-up for a costume that's more believable, really make a huge difference.

4. A jack-o-lantern

It might seem clichéd, but carving a jack-o-lantern from a pumpkin is a Halloween tradition that can help get you into the right frame of mind to enjoy the holiday. Placing them around your house, especially outside the front door, is the perfect way to set the atmosphere for any Halloween celebrations you might be hosting.
