Our top pick for Men’s Halloween Costumes for the 2012 season is the deluxe Anatomy Man Second Skin Costume.
The super freaky costume comes complete with a full body suit, designed to mould to your natural body shape for a comfortable fit, with all-over, authentic looking muscle print plus coordinating full head mask with prominent vein detail.
The suitably gruesome look has already been sported by a certain Harry Styles this year. The One Direction star took to a London park to show off his new suit, perhaps in preparation for a Halloween themed party…?
The morphsuit trend has really taken off over the past two years and we predict the gory Anatomy Man Second Skin Suit costume to be a big hit for the October festivities. Available in two sizes, eligible for FREE UK delivery plus part of our Win A Holiday To Florida Costume Competition. Visit the website for full details.

Kim Kardashian is known for her trend setting costumes for the Halloween season. Last year she sported a rather sexy Poison Ivy Costume, complete with full red wig. This year it looks as though the reality star is opting for a sexy leopard print catsuit – making cats and leopards all the rage for our fashionista customers for Halloween 2012.
For the stunning look Miss K was pictured in last year check out the Leg Avenue Vicious Vixen Costume. Available in two sizes with FREE UK delivery and express delivery options available to our overseas customers.
For this year’s leopard print look, we have a range of similar styles, favoured by many a celeb already, including Nicki Minaj, TOWIE’s Lucy Mecklenburgh, Nicky Hilton and Pixie Lott.
A huge trend for 2012 is the Nicki Minaj Fancy Dress theme! Popular for Halloween, New Years Eve and concert attendance – the eccentric, rapping, wig wearing, fashion icon makes a great choice for Barbs & Kens and those looking to get creative and outlandish.
The singing superstar is well know for a range of favourite looks including leopard print, the colour pink, barbie blonde and rainbow. Pick two or three of these, mix it up a bit and voila! It’s important to apply your chosen style from head to toe. A Nicki Minaj wig is imperative, think two tone, pastel pink or bleach yellow blonde. Rainbow tip nails, false eyelashes, bright pink lipstick, ghetto silver jewellery and quirky animal print accessories are all options – cheetah print, leopard print and giraffe print have all been spotted on Miss Minaj.
After the massive success of the huge Zombie theme during the last Halloween season, the fancy dress costume industry has responded with the biggest and best zombie costume collection yet.

Love them or think they utterly suck (hehe!), vampires have been big news for the past couple of years, and the trend looks set to continue this year when it comes to Halloween costumes. Supernatural action and the raw sex appeal derived from the uber popular Vampire Diaries and True Blood series means that more and more of you are looking to recreate the beauty, agility and fatal biting techniques of the newest crowned heroes.
With a host of sexy vampire costumes flying out of our Halloween Fancy Dress Costumes collection faster than Edward Cullen up a mountain of trees (‘better hold on spider monkey’ bleeeurgh), we are often asked for tips and tricks when it comes to completing the look in regards make up and hair.
Firstly, no vampire costume is complete without a set of fangs. Scarecrow are the world renowned manufacturer of the most deluxe and sought after fang caps – designed to affix to your own teeth, ensuring eating, drinking and talking are not hindered at all. Our most popular style are the Scarecrow Love Bite Fangs, natural looking, with a healthy shine and come complete with a simple adhesive mixture, ensuring a quick and easy fit.
The Scarecrow Blood Tipped Fangs are a fabulous alternative, with the same natural colouring and easy to apply moulding adhesive, but with the added effect of a prominent blood drip at the very point of the fang.
Depending on your costume, and the style of vampire you wish to achieve, there are a range of professional looking wounds and scars that can add a unique, finishing touch to your completed look.
The Vampire Bite Scar Prosthetic is applied to the neck in a similar fashion to a temporary tattoo and creates two distinctive fang marks. Add some fake blood to the latex piece for added gore.
The stake through the heart prosthetic from the fantastic range of Woochie wounds and latex has been specifically designed for the traditional vampire look. Amazingly authentic looking, this easy to apply addition will impress anyone at your chosen Halloween event.
Probably the most popular of the Woochie prosthetics is the Transylvanian Face appliance, creating a unisex, dipped, sinister brow effect. Combine with some white face paint and a pair of fang caps to create the truly film quality look.
Costume wigs are always a great option when it comes to coordinating your locks with your completed outfit. For the men, the now famous Robert Pattinson style from the Twilight films is perfect for the fashionable indie vampire.
For the women, a jet black pin up style with a deathly pale face works well with a whole host of vampire looks. Keep the hair away from the face, making the eyes and lips the focal points.
For those looking for a really dramatic look check out these superb vampire make up tutorial videos. The first is easy to follow and achieve, with basic products including eye shadow, foundation and eyeliner used to create the professional effect. Ideal for female sexy vampires, with a little added macabre. The fantastic under-eye veins are also great for male vampires and beautifully effective. Subscribe to Melissa’s Youtube Channel for a whole playlist of Halloween make up guides.
For the more confident make up wizards, with access to latex and prosthetics, this step by step guide by the super talented Pinkstylist will take you through a thorough explanation of how to achieve the most evil, show-stopping vampire make up look that will really freak your mates out. Enjoy!
Probably the sexiest vampire themed costume from our Halloween Fancy Dress range for 2012 and priced at just £35.99! The three piece costume combines the seductiveness of burlesque clothing with a victorian vampire twist and features a striped, satin effect bustier with bow accents plus matching bustle skirt with attractive pleat ruffle trim. The mini hat is placed on an alice band for an easy and secure fit. Find the long black gloves in our burlesque gloves range and the stunning striped hold up stockings in the fashion stockings online collection. Add a pair of deluxe vampire fang caps and some refined, gothic make up for a truly elegant, yet distinctly sinister look.
