BEETLE JUICERS

ASSORTED BLACK & WHITE SWANS

The swan thing has kicked off big time this year from out of nowhere, due to that movie about the deranged missus that dances about.

A contemporary children’s classic, which now accepted as a Halloween genre, has evolved it’s own individual rules around detail, content, accessories & commitment.

Marilyns

PROM / PAGEANT QUEENS

This was a massive category last year that has shrunk somewhat this year under a glut of Black Swans & Corpse Brides. A horror classic,…

VAMPIRES

Vampires are a bit like witches, you gotta mark them hard as they are a cornerstone of Halloween culture.

No, you are mistaken – It’s not too soon.

ALICE IN WONDERLAND & CHUMS

Becoming more popular as a category each year, but beyond the LSD vibe of the original book we really can’t see why..? It’s important that…

ASSORTED CLOWNS

Delivered (in the main) with varying degrees of ineptitude…

BAT & CATWOMEN

A great genre for the less inhibited ladies who wish to balance their sauce with their inner spookiness.

One of the smaller categories as it requires a fair bit of dedication to pull it off properly for the whole night.

MARIE ANTOINETTES

THE NINJA TURTLES

Not very spooky, but we do love them.

THE MUMMIES
