Halloween Costumes 2020: The Good, The Bad and The Spooky

It’s nearly Halloween! And this year is going to be fantastic! Halloween 2020 lands on a Saturday. But not just any Saturday – one that will be lit by the rare Blue Moon. There couldn’t be a more perfect night for ghosts and ghouls to go haunting, and zombies to rise up out of their graves.

 So, now that the pumpkins are being carved and the candy is being bought, the only thing left to do is find your perfect costume. 

Halloween Costumes 2020: The Good, The Bad and The Spooky

CrackerJack Costumes has everything you need to have a truly spooky Halloween. From costumes to wigs to creepy contact lenses, we can help you put together 2020’s best Halloween costume.


The Good 

Specialised Contact Lenses

Contact lenses can completely change your appearance. Try Starry Eyed Contact Lenses for a wide-range of luminous eye colours, or Primal Contact Lenses which are famous for their original design and well-loved by industry artists throughout the world.

Transform yourself into a demon with black out lenses, or into a werewolf with a deep orange style. Or pull on some white lenses, and become an angry poltergeist.

Kids Costumes



Kids might dress up as the scariest, goriest, most terrible characters in the world, but they look so darn cute in their costumes that we’ve had to include them in ‘the good’!

Your child’s costume is only limited by their imagination, but there are always some firm favourites. The traditional (but always wonderful) witches, reapers, skeletons and jack-o-lanterns, of course. As well as the ‘comic book’ creepers like Harley Quinn and the Joker. And Harry Potter and Hermione will likely never go out of style.

The Day of the Dead



The Day of the Dead falls firmly in the ‘Good’ section. That’s because the Day of the Dead festivities are held to demonstrate love and respect for deceased family members, while Halloween is a night of mischief and frights.

Regardless, Day of the Dead costumes are always extremely popular at Halloween, and we have the full range at CrackerJack. We have wigs, accessories, headbands, shawls and even full flower and bones laden dresses. And don’t forget to grab your face paint!

The Bad

When it comes to Halloween, ‘bad’ is really good. Here are some of our favourite ‘bad’ products for 2020.

Adult Halloween Costumes



We tried and tried, but couldn’t narrow down our adult costumes. There are just too many well-loved and trending to choose from! We stock costumes and wigs from The Rocky Horror Picture Show and The Addams Family. And, the more traditional, but no less impactful, evil clowns, devils, zombies and vampires.

Or you can go with the always popular, cheap-and-cheerful priests, nuns and prisoners, which are excellent costumes when going as a group.

We’re expecting doctors and nurses to be big this year (after all, they’re our heroes!), and our wide range includes surgeons kits and bloody aprons, which have high impact at a low price.

And if you’d like something a bit different – like a Viking princess or a Bollywood star – we’ve got that, too!
