Unique Halloween Costume Ideas
You don’t have to base your Halloween costume off movies or old stories. You can create whatever you want! We’ve put together a few unique Halloween costume ideas.
- Be a bikie who rides the roads hunting vampires.
- Rise from the dead – not as a zombie, but as a disco zombie.
- Combine a fairy-tale character with some gruesome wound accessories.
- Roam the streets as Greek ghost. (Hint: a toga will be useful for both parts).
Taking on one personality is fun, but two can be far more interesting. Try coming up with your own Halloween costume ideas, too!

A Bit of Halloween History
Halloween goes right back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-win). The festival took place on the 31st of October to celebrate the harvest season – you could say they reaped what they were sow-win.
On this night, the Gaels believed the boundaries between the world of the living and the world of the dead overlapped. This brought the dead back to life on Earth, bringing with them the chaos and blight of death.
The word ‘Halloween’ comes from All Hallow’s Eve. This is the day before All Hallow’s Day (or All Saint’s Day).
Why do we give candy and chocolate? The reason dates back to ancient festivals and beliefs, too. Treats and gifts were left out by citizens to pacify the resurrected spirits that walked their streets. It was also believed this may ensure another year of bountiful crops.
There may not be evil spirits today at trick-or-treating time, but some little ghouls in Halloween costumes may still play bad tricks – if you’ve run out of candy.
Halloween in Australia
In Australia today, Halloween is becoming increasingly popular. Businesses host parties for their employees, groups of friends get together to celebrate, while children trick-or-treat their local neighbourhood.
Even houses get dressed up. Fake cobwebs, jack-o-lanterns and creepy witch decorations always make an appearance.
