Halloween was originally an Anglo-Saxon celebration, but it is now also celebrated all over Spain. Ever since its first introduction, more and more people have decided to embrace the celebration of this scary, but fun festive event. People like to dress up like their favourite monster and a bit of black humour, and when done correctly and moderately it can actually be very healthy.
Today, this article by ShMadrid will focus on some of the most entertaining and original outfits for Halloween. If you still have doubts about what to wear, just keep on reading!

Wear the best Halloween costume with these ideas
A scary Red Riding Hood
Little Red Riding Hood outfits are one of the most common costumes for Halloween, but they can lack a bit of originality. That is why we suggest adding something extra.
Instead of being a damsel in distress waiting for the hunter to save her from the wolf, try taking destiny in your own hands by becoming a fearsome, and a bit sinister, Little Red Riding Hood.
Audrey Hepburn, a zombie with elegance
Audrey Hepburn made a fashion statement with her elegant, sophisticated and very feminine little black dress in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
You can opt for a prettier Halloween with your dress, but then with a touch of zombie by combining your curvy, feminine side with blood and the horror of a living dead woman.
Pregnant? Ripley would be proud or terrified
Just because you are pregnant doesn’t mean you cannot enjoy Halloween like everyone else. Just choose a Halloween outfit that hides your pea in the pod and your pregnancy will go unnoticed.
If you prefer a bit of black humour, you can include your pregnancy in the outfit, for example by showing everyone the alien that is growing in your belly. Wouldn’t that be fun and horrifying at the same time?
The twins from The Shining
The twins in Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece do not play a key role in the movie, and yet they are one of the most typical and memorable characters. They don’t have horrifying faces and they don’t go around with knives and axes, but their simplicity seems to surround them with a certain level of mystery and horror.
You need a second person for this costume to work well, of course, but this will make Halloween even more fun. An extra bonus is that you don’t need to spend a lot of money on an outfit or be extremely creative to achieve the desired result.

Long live Spanish fiction! La Casa de Papel
One of the best Spanish series has been broadcast on our televisions these last few years, and the series ‘La Casa de Papel’ has received very positive reviews by numerous international critics.
The costume is not too spooky, yet it is original and simple. It’s the perfect outfit if you are going to celebrate Halloween with a group. You just have to get your hands on some masks and red coloured, hooded overalls. Accessories are fake weapons, such as machine guns and pistols.
This nun sends shivers up my spine
The character in the movie ‘The Nun’ is a sinister one. The outfit is not that complicated, as it consists of a black tunic and a nun’s habit. The key to your costume will be good makeup. The skin’s white tone and black eye makeup are fundamental.
If you want to add the finishing touch, then try to find some black contact lenses. Who dares to stare into those eyes for more than a second? Always buy quality lenses though!
In this day and age of technology, what seems to scare you the most? Right, isn’t that the printer that never seems to work when you need it, or a pop up screen that says Windows needs to be updated (again).
There is also the “loading” symbol that never seems to stop loading and it drives you crazy! Or, even more terrifying, the very common 404 error that says the page you are looking for is no longer available.
If you want to do something original and modern, then use some fake blood or other creepy makeup, and scare your friends to death with these alarming computer messages.
Will you go for one of these outfits this Halloween?
