I love fancy dress parties, therefore I always look forward to Halloween and decide about my costume months before. In fact I have a long list of ideas, enough for years.
Last year together with my local mum friends, we organised a trick or treat route in our neighbourhood, so our – then – very little toddlers can have some Halloween fun. We’ve had a fantastic time and we all loved dressing up.
Because Laszlo didn’t quite like dressing up at that time (he loves it now!) and I also had to carry Babs in her carrier, we had to keep our outfits pretty simple. But I really wanted to have it to be coordinated! This was something every parent wants to do at least once. (Ok, maybe most of the parents?)
The droog outfit from Clockwork Orange is always a winner when I’m stuck with Halloween outfit ideas, as I always want to wear something different than a witch or zombie costume. And it always gets lots of “oh wows”. It’s scary too (it is, if you’ve seen the movie!), so perfect for Halloween. In my opinion, if a zombie outfit is appropriate for a small child, then this one too.
As long as you have the basics at home, it’s cheap and takes no time to produce it.
What you need:
- white or cream skinny jeans or trousers
- white top or shirt
- black bowler hat
- white or off-white suspenders/braces
- walking stick
- black eye pencil
So this is quite basic, of course you buy the whole matching outfit from fancy dress shop nowadays.

Here’s a few links to the accessories to buy them on Amazon:
