1. Pussy Riot

This is an ideal plan if there’s quite few of you. It’s also quite cheap, but definitely go all out with the colourful lycra suits, and don’t forget which shade your friends are or it could make for a very confusing evening…

2. Inside Out

Got a gender mixed band of rag tag spookers? Well why not opt for this hilarious bunch of skallywags? It keeps the Disney geeks happy and also gives the rest of us a break from the Frozen addicts bellowing out a drunken version of that song at 3am.

3. White walkers

There are few TV shows more suited to Halloween than Game of Thrones and that’s a fact. So ice yourself up with a few streaks of blue and some body paint and you’ll be ready for winter no matter what. What could be more fun than descending upon your favourite boozer looking like a freezing cold apocalypse?

4.  Emojis

What could be more topical than this set of online emoticons? Look like you’ve really got your finger on the pulse of life (sort of) and rock up in a spray painted cardboard representation of rolling on the floor laughing. Bad luck whoever gets the angry face one…

5. The new Snapchat filters

If this isn’t ingenious then we don’t know what is. Splurge rainbow vomit over everyone all night (fake, obviously…), fire cardboard steam out of your ears or wear love heart glasses for your flirting partner. I mean, who could possibly get sick of that?

Now what?
