With Halloween just five short weeks away, it’s time to go on the hunt for the perfect spooky look for the season. That’s why we couldn’t be happier to hear that Disney has brought out an inclusive range of dress-up costumes for wheelchair users.

The new range includes a sparkling Cinderella dress, a dapper Buzz Lightyear costume and a Super Suit from The Incredibles, complete with your very own wheelchair-friendly Incredimobile.

All of the costumes are specially designed to be perfectly adaptable for wheelchair users, by using stretchy fabric and hidden flaps. “Cinderella's arrival will grace any royal ball in this elegant adaptive costume, which features an opening at the back and a discreet flap in the front center for easy tube access,” Disney describes on their website.

“With a ‘Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo,’ our glittering gown, detailed in silver foil filigree, stardusted skirts, organza trims, and a bejeweled cameo, is an enchanting dress-up dream.”

The range comes with two options for wheelchair covers, including a princess carriage and an Incredimobile car. These come with supportive plastic piping pieces for added stability, and fit most wheelchairs with 24-inch wheels. Although, Disney warns that the wheelchair must be operated by a helper when the costume is attached and it’s not to be used with battery powered wheelchairs.

The range is available on shopdisney.com starting at $49.99.



Celebrities got into the spooky spirit last night and we were bowled over by some of their costumes. Obviously, Hollywood actors and Grammy winners have plenty of cash to splash out on a costume. Unlike us normal folk who have to settle for a €2 pair of cat ears. 

Their Halloween costumes are out of this world. Adele always gets it right and her 2019 costume is one of our favourites by far.

Adele is the queen of Halloween. The Set Fire To The Rain singer has dressed up as the legendary George Michael, Dolly Parton, June Carter Cash, Rose from Titanic and even Stanley Ipkiss from The Mask in previous years.

The expectations were high for this year’s costume but the singer didn’t disappoint.

Adele dressed up as one of the most iconic Disney villains this year and we’re obsessed with her costume.

The Hello songstress rocked a Captain Hook costume and she’s never looked better.

Adele donned a red animal print suit, gold hoops and a huge hat and a sparkly hook because she is the glamour queen.

The 31-year-old celebrated Halloween with Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul and his wife Lauren. The friends attended a Hollywood party last night and it’s safe to say Adele had the best costume.

The singer recently attended Drake’s birthday party and commented on her weight loss. She joked, “I used to cry but now I sweat.”

It is believed the Rolling In The Deep singer shed three stone.

Regardless of what the weighing scales says, Adele always looks phenomenal.


Taylor Swift is an undeniable icon – and her Reputation comeback this year, alongside her sold-out worldwide tour, proves that she truly is the feminist phoenix of the music industry.

Her commitment to female empowerment, clever video concepts and iconic style moments make her incredibly unique, and we can’t think of anyone we would rather emulate this Halloween.

Here are six Swiftie costume ideas to slither into the Halloween spirit in style:

Reputation reptile

Take the Look What You Made Me Do theme of snakes to a whole new level. Copy Taylor’s Reputation Tour performance look with a snakeskin, long-sleeved bodysuit (here’s one from Amazon, but you can find them on ASOS and Missguided, or on the highstreet in Zara and H&M) and team it with fishnet tights and knee-high boots.

Once you have your outfit down, do your makeup just like Taylor, complete with red lip and liquid liner, before grabbing another pair of fishnets, stretching them over your face, and using green shimmery eyeshadow to add a snake-scale pattern to your temples, down your cheek bones and chin.

Finish with lots of highlighter and a microphone.

22 (and BOO) 

This is one of those Halloween costumes that you probably have most of the elements of already.

All you need is a black hat, black shorts and a plain white t-shirt. Duct tape on the ‘Not A Lot Going On’ slogan, or write it on the t-shirt with a marker.

You might have to get online to order those red, heart shaped sunglasses, but other that that, this costume is probably already in your wardrobe. Bonus points on this one if you’re actually 22 and just want to go around shouting that all night.

Taylor Swift has had a serious ascent to stardom, but one incident that will go down in pop culture history has got to be the events of the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, when Kanye West notoriously stormed the stage after Taylor’s win for Best Female Music Video.

Taylor proved that she is graceful to her core after she reacted bravely and with dignity on stage to Kanye’s interruption, as he claimed that Beyonce would have been more deserving of the win in the middle of Taylor’s acceptance speech.

For this costume, a silver sequin sheath draped into a Grecian-style gown will suffice, and you can pick up a length of sequin fabric at your local haberdashery. The most difficult aspect of this to replicate would be the Moonman award, but a sliver spray-painted action figure should suffice – it’s such a notorious moment that the reference won’t be lost on anyone.

OG Junior Jewels Tay

While we may have left this Taylor behind in music video history, Love Story will always be a firm fan fave.

This is arguably one of the easiest Taylor looks to recreate. All you need are flannel PJ bottoms, a white t-shirt, some markers, and plastic hipster glasses.

Copy the pattern on the neck and sleeve hems of Tay’s t-shirt, and then become the life of the Halloween party by getting all of your friends to sign it. In the original video, Taylor’s Junior Jewels t-shirt had lots of different names, but in the video for Look What You Made Me Do, it featured the names of her friends, like Selena Gomez, Lena Dunham and Gigi Hadid.  Bonus points for this costume, as you get to venture out in the comfort of your pyjamas.

The Bad Blood Squad

This is one for you and your girl gang – Taylor’s Bad Blood music video is one of her best, and it cemented the iconic nature of her squad. The video goes a little something like this: Double-crossed by her partner Arsyn, played by Selena Gomez, assassin Catastrophe (Tay-tay) enlists a troupe of fierce females to seek her revenge.

Simply deck yourselves out in different styles of black clothing, from leather skirts to ripped leggings, black crop tops and bralettes and stompy boots.

Then, add as many belts as you can pool together, and some plastic weapons for good measure. Finish off the look with intense cat-eye liner al la Taylor and your bad ass, boss babe squad look is complete.

The Blank Space, baby

One of the most memorable moments from Taylor’s hit Blank Space (other than her smashing up that car with a golf club and dropping her lover’s phone in a fountain) is the very deranged looking Taylor writhing in front of a fireplace.

Taylor’s video pays homage to toxic, damaged relationships, and she epitomises the trope of a crazy girlfriend as she punches the walls in a leopard print dress, black makeup streaming down her face.

Luckily, leopard print is a popular pattern on the high street at the moment, so you should be able to pick up a leopard gúna for a steal. Then, simply add some smudged eyeliner down your cheeks, a red lip, and you’re done.


Kim Kardashian may be known for her killer heels, random sheer panelling and corsets-go-with-everything attitude, but her costume fot Halloween this year is honestly fab. 

The mum-of-two has always pulled out all the stops for the spooky season(who could forget the time she took the complete piss out of herself and dressed up as pregnant Kim wearing that floral sofa dress) but this year her costume is pure perfection. 

We love to don the ensemble of our idols at Halloween, and that's exactly what Kim did this year. 

The reality TV star dressed up as Cher, wearing an iconic yellow two-piece worn in 1973 by the singer-turned-actress. 

The yellow embellished set was worn to the Oscars by Cher, and was photographed there with Sonny Bono.

That's where bestie Jonathan Cheban comes in. 

Rather than roping Kanye into her duo outfit, Celebrity Big Brother contestant and restaurateur Johnathan donned Sonny's half of the ensemble. 

Kim looked striking with her perfectly executed Cher makeup, complete with heavy bottom eyelashes.

And can we talk about that ab contouring? 

This isn't the first time Kim has channelled Cher vibes. 

The businesswoman was previously featured on the cover of Harpers Bazaar in a Cher-inspired photoshoot. 

In this case, immitation truly is the highest form of flattery. 



Diana Alvarez and her 5-year-old daughter, Kylie Rae Brooks, absolutely adore Beyoncé (same though).

Anyway, when an opportunity for dressing up presented itself this week, it being Halloween, the choice was simple. 


The purest form of love #KylieRaeBrooks

Kylie Rae embraced her inner Queen B, and we have to say, she NAILED IT.

Diana told Buzzfeed that the costume sort of just "came together" after they found the yellow dress. 

"She grabbed my shirt and said, ‘Momma, that’s Beyoncé’s ‘Hold Up’ dress,’” she said. 


Hold up, they don't love you like I love you! #KylieRaeBrooks

“She kept looking at herself in the mirror. She didn’t want to take it off” the proud mum said. 

What an absolute superstar!



When news broke that Kim Kardashian had been held at gunpoint in her Paris apartment last week, there was a distinct 'she had it coming' air among many pop culture commentators.

And while late night chat show hosts and stand-up comedians made jokes at Kim's expense, one costume company in the States was busy creating a costume which gave an insight into the horror experienced by the mother of two.

Featuring a white robe, black wig, '$4 million ring', sunglasses, fake gag and rope, the Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Costume Kit has come under serious fire from members of the public who wasted no time slamming the company for their tasteless creation.

While they don't specifically reference Kim in the website description, there is no doubting who the costume is based on.

"She has devoted her life to promoting American decadence, youth, and hedonism but all that flashy living caught up with her one night in Paris when armed men bound her, stole her jewelry and her peace of mind," the site explained.

"This Halloween have some fun with pop culture and dress just like the Queen of Social media with our sensational "Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Costume" Costume."

Sickened by the company's attempt to cash in on Kim's ordeal (you're looking at a $69.99 price tag, if you're interested) members of the public have voiced their disgust online.

"This costume is not only f**king tasteless but completely disrespectful of a very serious situation that not only Kim Kardashian has experienced but countless other women and men," wrote one.

We're with them on that one.


It's a little over a week until Halloween, so now's the time to get planning this year's epic costume.

For 2015, we've pledged to ditch the sexy sailor/sexy soldier/sexy witch scenario and go for something a little more original.

If you need inspiration, just take a look back at the goings-on over the last year. Or, read below, because we've done all the hard work for you.

Here are 11 pop-culture Halloween looks that'll ensure you stand out from the crowd*

Put on your finest gold dress and keep saying 'Miley What's Good' with increased levels of malice.


2. Miley herself at the 2015 VMAs
She wore a whole load of costumes on the night, but this one would be SO easy to replicate. Tinsel and a leotard. Done.

Or, head to your nearest fabric shop and throw this one together:


3. Disgust from Inside Out
You'll need to paint yourself green and locate a green wig. Plus, your levels of sass will need to be at an all-time high.

Remember him?

Well, one company has capitalised on that to make all of your Halloween dreams come true.

Every Halloween we see a new costume crop up associated with current pop culture events – and this year is certainly no different.

Fans of Caitlyn Jenner were enraged when they saw costumes of the reality stars Vanity Fair cover go up online, mimicing the day she announced to the world that she is a trans woman.

Many LGBT advocates and supporters of Jenner were not happy, calling the costumes transphobic and insulting.

But apparently, it doesn't bother Caitlyn.

Speaking on the TODAY show, the 65-year-old admitted she doesn't have a problem with it, much to everyone's surprise.

“I’m in on the joke. I don’t think it’s offensive at all,” Ms Jenner told Matt Lauer.

“I know the community does and they’ve gotten a lot of criticism for doing it. I think it’s great.”

Say what now?! In fact, the Olympic star seemed to have a much greater concern for the quality of the piece rather than anything else.

“I mean, that was a serious bustier on the cover of Vanity Fair,” she laughed.

“At least get some good clothes. You’ve got to enjoy life. Life’s too short. I can’t get too upset about that type of stuff.”



So yesterday we showed you the Caitlyn Jenner Halloween costume which is available online and is causing some serious controversy amongst fans of the transgender role model. 

But things have some how turned even more controversial in the world of Halloween costumes. We are absolutely appalled having seen the latest costume for sale on Costumeish.com.

A Lion Killer Dentist Halloween Costume became available at midnight last night and retails at €52.31. The costume comes complete with a severed head and a dentist uniform covered with fake blood splatters. 

The company's CEO Johnathon Weeks told TMZ that they made the costume available after they were flooded with requests from people who wanted to dress up as Dr. Walter Palmer who killed Cecil the lion earlier this summer. 

This costume has caused some serious backlash for the company already but Johnathon Weeks really thinks they are doing something good saying that 15% of all proceeds will go to the African Wildlife Foundation Justice For Cecil. 

The description of the costume on Costumeish.com reads: "'All Doctor Palmer wanted was to hang dead animals in his house, but what started as an obscure (if legally-dubious) hunting trip has since erupted into a brouhaha of trans-Atlantic proportions."

"2015's most controversial killing has laid bare the rift in American and Zimbabwean attitudes toward exotic game hunting and animal conservation pitting an outraged mob against a Minnesotan dentist in a scandal sure to be remembered for a generation."

'Our Lion Killer Dentist Costume features a severed lion's head mask, bloody smock, and bloody gloves for a gruesome, complete look.'

The website has yet to sell one of the costumes.
