Many of us will have that one friend who gets very excited around Halloween, having spent several months previous researching a terrifically unique costume, with parts sourced from all around the country (or the world).
And while there’s nothing wrong with getting into the spirit of things, the rest of us prefer to occupy our time in a variety of different ways, and then proceed to panic around two days beforehand when we realise everyone else is dressing up, and the only materials we have at home are a faded bedsheet and some thumbtacks.
Or there’s always the purchasing route – thecostumeshop.ie are still selling away. Based in Portlaoise, you can pick something up in person or order online for next day delivery (if you’re quick). You won’t like everything, but there are a few options which won’t break the bank, like this 1920s Flapper outfit for €19.99, was €27.99. At the very least, you might pick up a few ideas!
