We’ve been getting into the Halloween spirit this week here at PW HQ, but we’re really struggling to decide what to dress up as this year! Luckily, our mobile slots characters gave us some great inspiration for spooky outfits that won't break the bank. Check out our guide to our best PocketWin-inspired costume ideas…
Pirate – Treasure Ahoy
You’ve got a few options here, depending on how much effort you want to put in! To transform yourself into our jeering Jack, all you need is a bandana, some stubble (real or fake, it’s up to you) and something to black out a few teeth for that authentic scurvy style. Got a little more time? See if you can source a cheap pirate hat and a hook, then all you need is a bushy beard and you’ll look just like our Captain King!
Wizard or witch – Wintastic Beasts
If you love everything to do with the wizarding world, there’s a good chance you already own a magic wand and maybe even a school for magic house scarf! You could beg, steal or borrow a broomstick and find yourself a cuddly owl to really seal the deal. Fancy the more traditional witch look? All you need is plenty of black, a pointy hat and some green face paint – you’ll look wicked!
Johnny Bloodskull – Temple 10,000
The great thing about this one? You won’t have to spend much on clothes! All you really need is some black and white face paint, a yellow skirt and plenty of self-confidence. You should be able to make yourself a pretty impressive headdress with a cardboard band, some glue and a few coloured feathers. Then just strip off and slap that face paint on!
Chalk outline – Murderous Money
This is a pretty cool one that’s surprisingly easy to pull off! Just kit yourself out all in black and draw on a white chalk outline with fabric paint, tape or whatever you have to hand. It’s so simple to make, and you’re guaranteed to get a few laughs from this one. Just be aware though – for the full effect, you may need to spend most of the evening lying on the floor.
Zombie spy – Jackpot Agent
You know how those films always go – the secret agent is nearly offed by the bad guys but somehow miraculously survives. But what if he didn’t? And then came back as a zombie for some reason? (We’ve seen films with stranger plots!) If you’ve got a suit in your wardrobe, you’re pretty much sorted! You’ll just need some gory makeup, a bit of fake blood and maybe a plastic pistol to finish it off. Just remember to order your brains shaken, not stirred.
