The boys have had a dress rehearsal ready for Halloween
already, they really cannot wait, a friend is planning a party so they are
buzzing with excitement. They were
fortunately sent outfits from the Matalan fancy dress range, as I was not sure
if they would squeeze into their Ghostbusters outfits this year. Plus you can never have enough fancy dress
costumes for my two!
I was very impressed with the Matalan Halloween Shop as the prices
are very good for the quality. I went
to a specialist fancy dress shop to buy their Ghostbusters outfits last year
and spent considerably more and to be honest its not worth spending a fortune
as by the time next Halloween comes your children in all likelihood will have
grown out of their costumes.
The Kids Werewolf costume even came with all the accessories
for just £12. You have the mask
naturally but also little furry hands to wear, which I thought was a great
extra. My eldest was so pleased with
this he was roaring at the moon!

Youngest had the Kids Pirate Skeleton costume also £12. This came with a mask and a sword, so as you
can imagine he was swishing it all around the place getting into
character. Both costumes were ideal for
children’s imagination as they could really play the part and do all the
actions. They cannot wait to show their
friends what they have to wear.

A friend of my youngest was happy with her Female Pirate
costume (£12), no sword this time but a fetching pirate hat and tights (not pictured) instead.
At some shops you could easily
pay more than £12 without the extras (which they add more on for!) so I would
definitely shop with Matalan again for Halloween. Don’t mention to hubbie but I think the Ghostbusters outfits set
us back £70 for the boys last year, so I think £24 for these ones instead is
much more sensible…
Matalan also has lots of fantastic Halloween decorations; we
had the cake tier stand (£3) and a cupcake accessories kit (£3) so I could give
hubbie a nudge to make some more of his delicious cakes for the party.
Hope you have a spooky Halloween.
