It’s that time of year again – Halloween! No matter what you’re age, Halloween, just like Christmas, seems to bring about those feelings of excitement and mischief we thought angry adolescence had gotten rid of forever.
If you’re going out this Saturday the 31st, chances are you’re dressing up, and we all know the golden rule of dress up – go hard or go home.

The Unzipped Face
A Plus for effort if you go for this one, and AA Plus for Halloween dedication. You’ll probably have people running for the hills when they see you, but you’ll without doubt have the best outfit at the party thanks to Camilla Frederikke’s tutorial:
The Russian Doll
If you’re looking to go anti Halloween, take a look at Ingrid Nilsen’s doll tutorial. Cute as a button, you’ll be the girls the boys come running to when they’re terrified of old zip face two points up…
The Half Skull
Half terrifying, half beautiful, this half skull tutorial from Roxxasaurus is the best of both worlds and is actually pretty simple to do:
