shit, what do I wear!?

Put your hands up if with one day to go you're still unsure what to wear for Halloween? Here are some quick ideas that don't involve rushing to the fancy dress shop and throwing excessive amounts of money at a solution. phew!

It's a bit of a given that if you don face paint at Halloween, you put sufficient effort into your costume and shall command respect from others for the rest of the night. And wearing Day of The Dead face paint in honour of the Mexican festival gives you cool points. You look good and weren't afraid of looking a little bit silly. Wear a garland in your hair and a hawaiian shirt just for the sake of confusing floral nations.

Duh, how bloody cool did Iekeliene Stange look in October's Dazed and Confused. True, she has killer cheekbone structure and fabulously nonchalant platinum blonde hair on her side, and well, you may resemble a green sweating mass, but it's worth a go isn't it?

Wearing ears at Halloween can be risky business; you don't want to toe that 'Sexy Cat' line. But I'd say choosing to pay homage to a character well loved by generations of children means that with nostalgia on your side you can ace it in the costume department. Watch the video below for a how-to guide. Wes Anderson fans may smile and nod along at the film references.

Ooh some good ideas. We're going for high fashion undead/goth things. Might attempt Galliano/Dior type make up but I don't have the skills!!

Ha ha these are all great. For a moment I thought of wearing LV ears but then I realized no one would get it and everyone would think I was a sexy bunny. Which is more terrifying that even Iekeliene's witch outfit.

I am always one of those who 5 minutes before leaving don't know what to wear yet.
I love the green idea.
