Halloween in St Andrews: It’s Easier Than You Think

Isabelle Sturt tells us how to brave the Scottish cold while making the most out of your Halloween costume

Halloween has always been one of my favourite holidays. As a kid it is guaranteed fun, dressing up in a homemade costume my very DIY dad had put together, groaning at having to wear a long sleeve thermal at my mother’s insistence. These are the rules of Halloween I have always had, costumes should be practical for your environment but fun, and not taken too seriously.

Here are some ideas for making a Scottish Halloween enjoyable, easy but surprisingly practical!

LAYERS

Regardless of whether this is your first October in Scotland, you probably know it’s going to be cold. If scantily-clad is your vibe, by all means rock those fishnet tights, but it’s so easy to layer up elsewhere. Stay warm kids, its nearly November.

SPARKLES

When in doubt, just add glitter. This may prove potentially problematic for bedsheets but in the moment its fantastic. Gemstones, glitter and just general glitz will always make you feel special and jazz up any costume whether the aim is glitter mermaid or eccentric dolphin.

HATS

Maybe you’ve left it to the last minute, you’re reading this on the 29th and have no idea what to wear on Wednesday. Have no fear. Hats are a great way to tie an outfit together that would otherwise be pretty boring. Last year I scrambled around town looking for anything to be, before digging out a sheriff’s hat from a box of raisin leftovers. Instant costume with an all-black outfit.

GROUP OUTFITS

Team up with a friend, find an iconic duo and run with it. Hillary and Bill, Cher and Dion, Shaggy and Scooby or whatever floats your boat. They can simple and easily recognizable together. Also, in a town with this many charity shops, how hard can finding a pantsuit be?

PUNS

If you’re really in a pinch, go punny. Throw on a ballgown and write ‘sorry’ on a A3 sheet around your neck, and there you have it. You’re a formal apology. Google and BuzzFeed articles are great inspiration for something practical and require next to nothing effort.

So, hit the town kiddies, I expect big things. Whether you choose some knee-high socks for warmth or are planning on going for the ‘smeared-blood-on-a-ripped white t-shirt’ look, please commit. Nothing looks worse than no effort on the one day a costume is always required.
