All you need to do is go crazy backcombing your hair, get out your tightest skinny black jeans and leather jacket. Top it off with some red peep-toe heels and your good to go. This is also a great idea for a couples costume as Danny outfits are uncomplicated; the hair will be the most challenging part.
All you are going to need is a white shirt with a black pinafore dress, plait your hair into pigtails and put on your best passive/creepy stare.

This one relies heavily on makeup so keep your clothes to classic black and let your face do the talking. There are loads of YouTube step by step tutorials to get the best Dia De Muertos face.

Throw on some dungarees and a plaid shirt, draw on a stitched smile and top it off with a straw hat and hey presto you’ve got yourself a scarecrow no one would want to find in a cornfield. Click Here for youtube tutorial.
It’s safe to say if your children have seen the Harry Potter films they are going to ask for this one. All you really need is their school uniform with a black robe, draw on a scar, a pair of fake glasses and give them a twig for a wand. If you're already a Potter fan you might have a Gryffindor scarf to top it off but if not Primark always has Harry Potter themed clothing.
