Ghosts & Ghouls a SPOOKTACULAR Event

Ghosts & Ghouls a SPOOKTACULAR Event

It is the time of year again where we can all unleash our inner spookiness and have fun with the creepy and ghoulish. Whether you are planning to go out on Halloween or stay at home, there is lots of fun to be had. You can let your creativity run wild and transform yourself and your environment into a spooktacular wonderland for friends and family to enjoy with you. With bargain shops like Poundland, you don’t have to worry about spending a fortune to celebrate the Halloween season. Looking through the selection of Halloween goodies from several stores and websites, I found Poundland was the best value for money.

Makeup is the finishing touch to any look and it doesn’t have to break the bank.


These make-up kits in Poundland are capable of creating detailed and creepy images. Create your new monster persona with a zipper face, a mummy, a zombie or the classic vampire. Perfect for adults and older children who want to create a specific look, and you will finish your outfit perfectly with one of these sets. For more options, check the Poundland website at or visit one of your local stores.

However, Halloween is particularly fun for children as well and these well-designed make-up tattoos are also great for kids as they are quick and easy to apply and they can continue to enjoy the Halloween festivities. These kits are already pre-prepared and simple to apply.


Now, if makeup isn’t your thing or you don’t want to put it on yourself or your children,  Poundland has a great range of masks to help you complete your Halloween outfit.


These masks are very detailed and with these, it is guaranteed to enhance the Halloween spirit. They are based on Halloween horror icons and they really do look the part. They are ideal for older children and adults, but that doesn’t mean the younger children have been forgotten. Poundland is also stocking soft foam masks, perfect for delicate faces. There are even cute and spooky headbands to add that extra something to the outfit.


Of course, my favourite Halloween item this year in Poundland has to be the beautifully detailed masquerade masks. With intense detail and value for money, you might be tempted like me to get all the designs on offer this year. Just like the children’s range, there are awesome headbands to help add something special to your Halloween look, And there are some fantastic makeup tutorials on YouTube to help create the image of your choice.


I hope that however you celebrate Halloween it is one to remember for all the right reasons. Halloween is always a fun and exciting time of year, but it is important to remain safe during your celebrations.

On Halloween night, don’t leave lit pumpkins or candles unattended. A good way to keep everyone safe is to use battery operated tea-light and candles.

If you are creating a makeup look for yourself or someone else this year, share with us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with #HalloweenWithGloTime and if you found a bargain Halloween time, let us in on the secret. We would also love to see your Halloween décor. And with that, I leave you to finish getting ready for Halloween night, as I, myself pops over to my local Poundland store and pick myself up a bargain or two. Have fun and stay safe!
