Once you’ve read other people’s tales of things that go bump in the night, head over to the Ghost Research Society website .

Whatever your age, you can’t go to a Halloween party without a costume, and BuyCostumes.com claims to be the most popular fancy dress shop on the internet. They have costumes for adults, kids, teens and pets and all the accessories you need. Select classic a choice like the vampire , or go as a piece of pop culture ephemera like the LMFAO Shuffle Bot .

Once you’ve selected your fancy dress, you need to decorate. The classic Halloween decoration is the jack-o’-lantern. While there are many pumpkin carving galleries, Pumpkin Gutter features the artistry of Scott Cummins. He is a master of the art form, and his site includes tutorials so you can, with enough practice, become as good as him (well, almost).

 

OCT31.co.uk is the one place you need to go to get the rest of your Halloween decorations. It is especially great for scary life-like props and creepy decorations.

Finally, head to the BBC Good Food Halloween section for Halloween-appropriate food, drinks and snacks. There are other places to go to find really gruesome recipes, but these recipes are funnier than they are scary, making them ideal for goblins of all ages.
