Halloween is that time of the year when you have to dress to scare, rather than to impress, so make sure you make use of all that red lipstick you’ve got in you bag and let it drip like blood.
If you cannot find anything interesting and do not wish to spoil an expensive dress, then you could probably even try something like this, which would be both funny and innovative.
And if you cannot dress to scare, then you can still try a fun look, that might go with the theme like the pumpkin-man, which would add to the fun of the party and make you sink in with the theme seamlessly.
