 5. Primark

I know what you are thinking….’Primark?’

But i can assure you that there are many little items in this super cheap store that you can pick up for pennies. This could be the trousers that you need to destroy to turn into your zombie costume or just a number of items to top of your sexy Halloween fairy.

If you go into Primark with a idea of the costume that you wish to create, then you wont get distracted and overwhelmed by the amount of cloths that are on offer. You could even print of a picture that you have of you desired outfit and then take that in with you for a focused shop.

All in all, I would not rely on getting a full blown realistic outfit from here but you can defiantly pick up some of those elusive items or a few pieces you wouldn’t mind destroying for the Halloween Cause.


And a last point from me, have a awesomely terrifying (in a halloweeny sense) weekend, don’t accept any tricks of any little munchkins and always remember to take out that spare bottle of fake blood for emergencies.
