Halloween is a great time to let your imagination run riot, whether you're going to a full-on Halloween party, or trick or treating with the kids. So this year, don't just cut holes in an old sheet to go as a ghost, check out the spine tingling range on eBay and really have some Halloween fun.

There is such a rich store of horror history to choose from when it comes to dressing up for Halloween, from traditional Halloween costumes to horror film Halloween costumes. From the funny to the downright freaky, eBay has something for everyone.

Classic Halloween Costumes

The classic costumes will never go out of fashion and will always raise a scream, whether you choose a simple skeleton suit or go for a multiple-bandage mummy look. You can add a sophisticated style with a cultured vampire Halloween costume, or go for gross as a gory zombie, complete with realistic blood and guts.

Halloween Character Costumes

Some horror film characters have become evil icons that will stay with us forever, and make great Halloween costumes. Freddie Krueger, Chucky and the infamous Scream face are all favourites, along with the chainsaw wielding madman, the hockey masked murderer and the terrifying clown from Stephen King's It.

Kids Halloween Costumes

Kids love dressing up at the best of times, and at Halloween it's almost compulsory. Check out our huge range of children's Halloween costumes, including witches, ghosts and pumpkins, with something for all ages, from the cute to the downright creepy.
