Halloween is the best holiday for fashion junkies. No other holiday offers the opportunity to exercise creative flair in selecting a costume, make-up and accessories. Even traditionally boring Halloween costumes offer opportunities for individuality, and of course a prime chance to show off your assets and style. Try these sassy spin-offs of the classic Halloween garb.

Find all Halloween Dolls


Green face paint and warts are not exactly adorable. Ditch those and find better ways to show your tricky side. Maybe witches in movies wear baggy black robes, but it certainly isn’t a rule. Try a black mini-dress with fishnet hose. Knee high boots or stilettos will add a little extra oomph, and of course, the look should be topped off with the standard black pointy hat. Suddenly, the Wicked Witch of the West got a whole lot more interesting...

Find all Halloween Dolls


Save the white bed sheet and crooked eye holes for your kid brother. That is certainly not the kind of ghost we are talking about. Ghosts are white, in general, but nobody said they had to be shapeless. Head out to your local fabric store in search of the perfect material. Find a sheer or, better yet, iridescent, material that is translucent. You want to be able to see shapes through it, not details.

With your full body overlay in the bag, search out a white cat suit or leotard. Put on the cat suit or leotard with tights, throw the sheer cloth over your head, and you are set. Now you shimmer in the light of the full moon, and shine in true fashionista style.

Find all Devil Dolls


What goes better with little red horns than you? You can wear literally anything topped with the standard red horns, and call yourself a devil. We opt for something hip and modern like low slung jeans and red stilettos, but you be the judge of your own personal style. Of course, those red horns will drag all attention to your hair, so be sure you have it perfectly coifed. A little extra time spent on killer make-up wouldn’t hurt either.

Find all Fairy Dolls


We all know you’re Daddy’s Little Princess, but do you really have to dress like a Disney Character to play one for Halloween? We think not. Find a gown that is beautiful and figure flattering. Think of this Halloween as your Junior Prom. Wear anything that has a little sparkle and shine, and of course, top it with the required tiara. To take it to the next level, throw in a pair of shimmery wings and a wand, and *poof* you’re a fairy princess.

Find all Halloween Dolls


If you really feel the need to dress up like a giant orange vegetable for Halloween, there is not much you can do to make it look less like you are attempting to be the world’s largest basketball. If you’re really feeling the pumpkin suit, go for it, but just know that we are thinking about you in this, your time of need.

If you are in doubt as to how to piece it all together, why not try it out here first? The Halloween Dolls are perfectly suited to try on potential costume ideas – even the pumpkin!

Me and my friend are going as Amy Lee from Evanescence, not because she's scary, because that would be an awesome person to go as in our opinion. Gothic, sort of.

Colouring my hair purple, and my nails are gonna be black too... So basically all I'm adding to my regular clothes is the wings
