Alongside the statement sugar skull makeup, finish off your outfit with artistic purple bruises, lots of fake blood and chunky footwear. Before you know it, you’ll have a standout and scary look guaranteed to turn heads!

One iconic franchise that kids and adults alike can’t get enough of is Harry Potter. Providing plenty of different options for parents and children, including Harry, Hermione and Hogwarts teachers, every member of your family can choose their own unique character.
