Last Minute Halloween Costumes inspired by the Theatre

Oh No! You’ve been invited to a Halloween party tonight and you need a last minute costume. The Angel shop has a queue around the corner! Official London Theatre is here to help with some cheap and easy solutions.

A Busker in STOMP

Grab those 90s baggy jeans from your wardrobe and throw on a vest, add a backwards cap and get a giant silver dustbin and you’re ready to stomp the night away. Brush up on some of your moves here.

A Zombie from THRILLER LIVE

Grab any outfit and smear it with dirt, tear it up. Really shred it. Then, grab some dark makeup and ghoul your face. Douse yourself with fake blood and BOOM, you’re a zombie.

One of the Dads from MAMMA MIA!

Grab a white, short sleeved shirt and some khakis. That’s it! You’re one of Sophie’s three dads! Bring your two mates and you can all go together!

Harry Potter from HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD

You don’t have to #keepthesecrets on how to get this look. Harry Potter is all grown up in the Parts One and Two of the beloved legacy, now onstage. Grab a nice pair of chinos, a waistcoat and don’t forget the signature glasses and lightning bolt scar.

Veruca Salt from CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY

Think Pink. Grab some tights, ballet slippers and a tutu (all pink). Throw in a pink fur coat and some long blonde curls and you’ll have the sweetest costume at the party.

A Mormon from THE BOOK OF MORMON

Already a classic, the black tie and short sleeve shirt with black trousers should be really easy. The thing that might be harder is getting your hands on the Book of Mormon to use as the prop. Don’t forget to brush up on your doorbell ringing skills.

Any others you might have?
