Halloween in the UK is always a tricky one. Though the US custom of just dressing up in whatever the hell you like is slowly making its way over here, many people here still see Halloween as a 'spooky' celebration where only the most ghoulish of costumes will do.

As far as I'm concerned, tacking the word 'sexy' in front of a regular costume is just not going to work for Halloween. Instead, I suggest using the word 'dead' instead. It's the perfect way to cheat your way to an appropriate Halloween costume made up of stuff you might actually wear afterwards. My first suggestion is the Dead Bride, worked around that black maxi dress you know you have hanging around the back of your wardrobe...
