Spook-tacular Halloween Costume Ideas for 2020

18 September 2020


The most haunting time of year is nearly here! Celebrate Halloween 2020 by dressing up in creative costumes for some spooky fun.

Here are B&M’s top Halloween fancy dress costumes for 2020, including options:

  • For Him
  • For Her
  • For Kids
  • For Pets

If you’re planning to celebrate Halloween 2020 in ultimate style, why not start with your outfits?

It’s a timeless Halloween tradition to dress up in costumes, with some parties holding costume contests rewarding the people dressed most creatively.

The team at B&M has selected a range of looks that will go down a treat this year. Here are our top Halloween costumes of 2020!

For Him


The rustic trend is even making its way into our Halloween costumes! Try a fun look by decking yourself out like a scary scarecrow. 

B&M Top Tip: Arrange for a group effort and include Dorothy, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion!


Vampires have never gone out of fashion - in fact, they’ve recently developed into pop culture heartthrobs! Grab yourself some fake blood and get practising your cape swooshing.

For Her


You can either go for the traditional fright wig, warts-and-all look or delve into the archive of pop culture for your favourite witch. From Hermione to the Sanderson sisters, choosing to dress as a witch is a small window into a huge dress-up world!


The “IT” remakes of recent years have brought the horror clown back to the forefront of public interest - so this look is bang on trend!

Add some gore to your costume or add spooky animated accessories to add a touch of dark humour.

B&M Top Tip: For a family party, try a spooky mini-me approach by dressing identically to your kids? They could even bring a decorative or toy clown to keep the shrinking going!

For Kids


Your littlest ones won’t want to miss out! Choose something cute, straightforward and easy to get on and off.

B&M Top Tip: Decorate buggies with spooky stickers and other accessories.

Broken Doll

Innocent kids are often the stuff of nightmares in horror movies! Harness the combination of sweetness and terror with a spooky doll look.

Skeleton Diva

The Day of the Dead look is a huge Halloween trend. Go for a stylish skeleton outfit and accessorise with glow in the dark makeup and accessories for the coolest costume around.

Fire Demon

Light up the room in a blaze of glory with this hotter than hot costume. The fire demon look is particularly suitable if your little one is a destructive force!

Medieval Torturer

Cut holes for a head and arms in a Hessian potato sack (wear over a t-shirt to avoid itching!), then add a plastic sword and executioner’s mask for a quick but effective home-made outfit.

B&M Top Tip: Why not bring a toy “prisoner”?

For Pets

From full outfits and jumpers to cool toys and accessories, there are many ways to include your pets in the fun with creative costumes!

B&M Top Tip: Here’s another great opportunity for a mini-me look! Try getting you and your pet matching pairs of wings.

Find inspiration by choosing from B&M favourite Halloween costumes for 2020 - including scarecrows, vampires, witches, clowns, dolls, skeletons, demons and torturers.
