Kids just love to dress up, so make this a year where you pull out all the stops to create the most fantastic costumes. Here are our 4 top tips to help you get started.
1. Match the costume to your child’s personality
Instead of being a Halloween themed character, your little one might rather be dressed as a pretty princess, stylish swan or super hero! Ask them what costume would really make them look and feel sensational - and you’ll get your answer! You might also want to gently encourage them to choose one they’ll want to wear all year, so it makes a valuable addition to their dress up box.
Check out our costume range here, with lots of choices for girls and boys.

Not everyone will want to dress up from top to toe. For some, just a few accessories are enough to get the effect they would like. Think Halloween hair slides and headbands, a stunning crown or a swishy cape.
