– Horror or normal film characters such as Scream, Freddie Krueger, The Joker, Wolverine, Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice or a character from Sleepy Hollow

– Dress for a certain decade/style era (New romantics style complete with face paint, bum bags and leggings in the 90’s etc)

– Fairy story/Disney/cartoon characters such as Bo Beep, Bugs Bunny, Aladdin, Jasmine etc, and if you want to be a bit twisted, you could turn them ‘scary’ with fake blood, make-up and props – such as ‘Little Dead Riding Hood’!

– Inanimate objects such as a Rubik’s cube or a bar of chocolate

– Celebrities such as Simon Cowell, George Bush or Margaret Thatcher

You could literally dress as anything, so it’s all up to your imagination!

(Or you could just buy/hire a costume of course…but that’s no fun :-))
