Mask your fear

Prepare to open the portal to the underworld. All Hallows Eve is nigh and if you haven't picked out a costume yet, you're going to look pretty stupid when all your friends and family are dressed in big colourful wigs and ill-fitting vinyl unitards which show an inordinate amount of camel toe and are carrying dangerously spinning glow-in-the-dark props and YOU'RE NOT.

At least consider putting on a Halloween mask to acknowledge the festivities. You'd be surprised to find how frightfully sophisticated masks are these days. At one time you could get away looking like Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett or even Jackie Stallone but increasingly consumers are bucking tradition for a fresher updated look.

Have a browse through the top 10 selling Halloween masks this year. Hopefully there will be one that makes you go "ew".

The Red Carpet Creature

The Bride of Wildenstein - an old favourite, now available in blonde

So many Choices, and only a few days to go!
The one binding factor is the Brittle CHEAP Blonde haired wigs that go with most of these costumes...Nobody Really has hair like that AND tons of money..Wha? Oh I'm sorry. nevermind!

Haven't seen Wildenstein lately. The new, puffier model makes an impressively compelling choice ... and in blonde! Well, I'm set.
