Halloween is always one of my favourite times of year. Any excuse to watch copious amounts of horror movies and eat piles of sweets is good in my book. Add into that a bit of dressing up and it's easily my number one holiday on the calendar. Since the start of October I've been planning my costumes (yes, I have more than one up my sleeve), buying anything Halloween themed (hello spooky peanut M&M's) and generally getting my creep on. One of my favourite posts from last year's Halloween extravaganza was our Unlikely Horror Icons so we've decided to revisit that idea with some new creepy inspiration.

Being one of the only horror ginger's I can think of, I've been wanting to dress up as Chucky from Child's Play ever since I started dying my hair. I pretty much planned out the look in our first Halloween post. So I thought it was about time I gave it a go. And here we have it -an insanely wearable outfit that, with the addition of some fake scars, makes for a pretty good possessed doll look (even if I do say so myself). I love a costume that can be made up of items you have/want in your wardrobe. Makes for a much better investment rather than a cheap, flammable costume you're never going to wear again.

This little get up consists of a super snugly jumper that I got in preparation of the colder months. I love the orange colour and the thick knit. I also love how it looks under this Kerrie Aldo pinafore. She does an excellent line in pinafore dresses (like this crazy cat lady one) and she kindly let me borrow this one. It's the perfect stylish stand in for Chucky's Good Guy dungarees. While the linen fabric may be more associated with summer time, layering it up makes it work throughout autumn too. Perfectly cosy for a night of trick or treating.

As a subtle hint at Chucky's murdering ways I added my little meat clever necklace. It popped up in last years Halloween post too. See, creepy accessories can be super versatile. If you're not into the whole full on costume idea, I would thoroughly recommend investing in some spooky jewels. Accessories are a great way of working Halloween into your wardrobe and keeping it with you all year round.
