Halloween 2018 Outfit Inspiration

Going to a Halloween party this year and struggling for ideas? Want to get fully involved but don’t want to spend loads of money? Well, with lots of scarily good Halloween films out at Cineworld Witney right about now, we thought we’d take inspiration from these. We’ll help you to be resourceful, using items you already own or will be able to wear again. Whatever your gender, age or budget, read on for Halloween 2018 Outfit Inspiration…


The Happytime Murders (15)

Release date: 27th August 2018

‘The Happytime Murders is set in the underbelly of Los Angeles where puppets and humans coexist. Two clashing detectives, one human and one puppet, are forced to work together to try and solve who is brutally murdering the former cast of ‘The Happytime Gang’, a beloved classic puppet show.’

Must-have items to complete the detective look:


The Nun (15)

Release date: 6th September 2018

‘When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest (Demian Bichir) with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows (Taissa Farmiga) are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret.’

Must-have items to complete your look as a nun:


The Predator (15)

Release date: 12th September 2018

‘From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species.’

Possibly the most difficult of all our suggestions to try and make/find at home, you might want to buy some or this entire look, from a website such as Amazon. This may end up being quite costly though, so here are our must-have items to complete The Predator look:


The House With A Clock In Its Walls (12A)

Release date: 21st September 2018

‘In the tradition of Amblin classics where fantastical events occur in the most unexpected places, Jack Black and Cate Blanchett star in The House With A Clock In Its Walls. A film for the whole family, this magical adventure tells the tale of 10-year-old Lewis, an orphan who is sent to live with his Uncle Jonathan in a creaky old house.’

Must-have items to complete the look of Lewis:


Venom (Certificate TBC)

Release date: 19th October 2018

‘Halloween comes to life in a brand-new comedy adventure based on R.L. Stine’s 400-million-selling series of books.’

Must-have items to complete the look of our favourite character, Slappy the Dummy:

This film has so many other characters, perfect for kids, such as a witch, werewolf, yeti, green monster, Jack-O’Lanterns, ghost and even evil gummy bears. Get creative and try one of these! Failing that, Marks and Spencer and Debenhams have a wide range of ready-to-wear fancy dress costumes.
