As we all know, pumpkins are a key feature of Halloween and the autumn season in general (be honest, how many pumpkin spice lattes have you had so far?). But instead of carving out your jack-o’-lantern this year, why not try something a bit different and become one yourself?

Okay, we know this sounds strange but hear us out. By creating some neat ballerina buns on the top of your head, then getting creative with some coloured ribbon, you can easily have a unique style for the spooky celebrations! Credit: @tracyropium

Calavera skulls (AKA sugar skulls) have been a hot choice for Halloween get ups these past few years. But instead of going for a traditional style, give yours and extra feminine touch with the use of a flower crown.

Either go for some fresh flowers or just recycle your one from the festival season, and you’ll be ready for your Instastories close up! Credit: @rodneywayneofficial

But if you already have your Unicorn colouring done and dusted, and need a way to up your magical mane game for Halloween, we suggest opting for a golden Unicorn headdress. Match your shimmering eye shadow with your hair hues, pop on your crown and you’re suddenly a Unicorn Queen! Credit: @envyroomsalon
