The Bewitching Witch

We’re not talking stick on warts and green fingernails here. We’re thinking gorgeous black corset with a long tulle black skirt and a witch’s hat. If you’re really daring, a sheer bodice with this stunning spider’s web harness emphasising your chest will turn heads and raise pulses.

The Naughty Nurse

Is it even Halloween if someone isn’t strutting around dressed as a naughty nurse? The naughty nurse costume is as much a Halloween tradition as bobbing for apples. Accessorise this cheeky outfit with erotic gloves. They mightn’t be sterile, but they’ll certainly be sexy.

She’s fierce, she’s flirty, she’s feline. You can pretty much wear anything you like to nail the Catwoman costume. It just needs to be black, tight, and wet look. Oh, and don’t forget the ears – cat ears are essential to finish the look off.

What is Oktoberfest?

Oktoberfest is a world-renowned festival held in Munich, Germany. The festival takes place in late September to early October and celebrates Bavarian culture and beer. People gather in large beer halls and beer gardens to enjoy traditional Bavarian food and drink, especially beer served in large steins or tankards. There’s music and dancing and an all-round amazing atmosphere. It’s no surprise then, that us Brits have adopted Oktoberfest as a beloved festival of our own with events throughout the UK during the month of October. The traditional dress of beer maid costumes and lederhosen are a staple of any good Oktoberfest party.

Whether you’re heading out to a party or throwing a Halloween bash at home, we hope our Halloween fancy dress ideas have given you some inspiration for the spooky celebrations on October the 31st.
