Affordable Womens Halloween Costumes

cheap womens halloween fancy dress costumes


With just a week to go, have you decided what you're going to dress up as for Halloween? I don't know about you but I usually plan a costume ages in advance, forget all about it, and suddenly have to pick out a really quick, last minute costume or else I'm stuck with the old bin bag and a 50p plastic mask get up - a look you can only really get away with before your age hits double digits. 

Looking for something quick and easy? Here are my choices for affordable last minute Halloween costumes.


Harlequin £20

Maybe I've been watching too many Comic Book shows but as soon as I seen this Harlequin costume I knew it would be a winner! Even down to the mismatched converse! It comes with the gloves, headband and leggings too. It's fun, cute and not too sexy like some comic character costumes tend to be which just isn't for me at all!You could have some real fun with the hair and make up for this one too and I have seen the blow up hammers online for only a few quid!



Miss Scissorhands £33

This is about as much as I'm willing to pay for a Halloween costume but I love this one and have been eyeing it up for the last couple of years! It's the included scissored gloves that really sell it to me; they'd look brilliant wrapped about a goblet of gin! You also get the sleeves, wig and choker which I think is fantastic value! I'd cut up some Primark leggings to go underneath and job done! I think even my minimal make-up skills could pull off those spooky smokey eyes too!


Caribbean Pirate £15

Look familiar? This was the costume I wore for Halloween 2013 and it was amazing. It fit well, was very comfortable, I didn't feel all exposed and it went down a real hit! I put my own fishnet tights and knee high boots with it, put little braids through my hair and wore huge Jack Sparrow would be proud earrings and an arm full of bangles. I even had temporary tattoos and purposefully chipped nails. It was simple, effective and loads of fun to accessorise!

What will you be dressing up as this Halloween? Do you prefer to buy all your costume in one or DIY?

Until next time,

  1. You look fab in that costume!! I love the idea and the red suits you. Fab! x
    I want to make our own Halloween costumes (very basic, I'm hoping the idea will be interesting enough to counteract the lack of sewing skills).

    1. Thanks! That's probably been my favourite costume I've done for Halloween, everything just worked so well, and I loved all the big bangles and the random plaits through my hair! So much fun!

  2. I'm not sure if I'm going to go to work on Friday as a hogwarts student or a pumpkin. Doom.

    1. Haha, thanks! I think this is the one and only time in my life I have been sorta happy with my eyebrows! I really hate doing them but after I'd do all the make-up, heavy on the bronzer for that out at sea glow, my eyebrows had completely disappeared!
