3 killer Halloween costume ideas for this year

As our name suggests, we're passionate about all things horror. Whether it's hunkering down to relive a terrifying tale on the big screen or putting on our scariest faces in the name of Halloween, there's nothing more we enjoy than embracing the fear and darkness that horror offers. It's an opportunity for us to step into character, confront the unknown head on and rehearse how we would cope with age-old dangers in a safe setting.

So naturally, Halloween is one of our favourite times of year. As the sun sets on another summer and darker nights begin to creep up on us, we revel in the fact that Halloween is now on the horizon, lurking in the shadows. But the only thing more terrifying than the night itself is not having a Halloween costume at all.

So, if you're struggling to think of anything suitably scary enough for your Halloween costume this year, then fear not, we at Mad About Horror have got you covered. With costumes, props and accessories regularly sought after by professional production companies up and down the country, we'll be sure to find you something to cause a scream!

Here are our three killer Halloween costume ideas for this year:

Jordan Peele's 'Us' – The Tethered
Despite only making his debut on the horror movie scene five years ago, Jordan Peele has already cemented himself as one of the genre's best ever directors. His films 'Get Out', 'Us', and most recently 'Nope', have breathed new life into the genre and received critical acclaim. So, there's no better Halloween costume than dressing up as one of The Tethered; made using actual screen used patterns and swatches which were provided by Jordan Peele and Monkeypaw Productions, the costume comes with coveralls, scissors and gloves, and is sure to cause a spook come October 31st.

Child's Play 2
If you're on the lookout for the quintessential Halloween costume then look no further than the notoriously popular Chucky costume. Designed by laser scanning actual screen used swatches from the film and with coveralls made using real corduroy, this costume proves that dressing up for Halloween is so much more than mere child's play. Whether you're heading out to a party or joining in with the trick or treating fun, there's nothing quite as unsettling that's sure to frighten more than an adult-sized doll on the loose.

Slaughterhouse Sam
When we think of Halloween and horror in general, our mind naturally veers towards images of blood being spilled. When our in-house costume designer set about creating something new for this year's line, they conjured up the image of Slaughterhouse Sam. Covered from head to toe in dirty coveralls and an apron, you can almost hear the blood-curdling screams of his victims reverberate around any room he chooses to step into. Make a statement this year and don't be another lamb to the slaughter.

Are you tempted by the three Halloween costumes above but not totally sold? Don't worry, we've got plenty to choose from. Whether you're searching for a professional grade clown costume or a seriously sinister Santa costume, we've got something to suit all tastes, with masks, props and accessories to match!
