Our favourite night of the year is approaching – what plans do you have for Halloween? The event falls on the eve of the Celtic festival of Samhain, which marks the end of the harvest and beginning of winter and is still celebrated by many pagans. Over the years, 31 October has also become an occasion to remember the dead in the form of either All Hallows Eve or the Mexican holiday called Day of the Dead.

Fancy dress has become a must and in the past, we might have chosen to look like witches or vampires but these days, anything goes! Costumes don’t need to cost a bomb either. Try charity shops, your own wardrobe and even the recycling bin for some inspiration and then get creative.

Once you’ve got your costume sorted, why not accessorise with pieces that you’ll use again and again like Alchemy’s striking Bitten Choker [P558] – a soft velvet neck band with red Swarovski crystal ‘blood’ droplets. Or maybe add one of our new resin pieces to your spooky decor, The Vault’s creepy Light of Azrael candle holder [V6] looks fantastic all year round. Whatever you decide, we hope you have lots of frightful fun!
