It’s Halloween and it’s time to get spooky. Whether you want to be a sinister ghoul or a comedic ghost, Smiffys-Liverpool is a fantastic place to find everything you need to look great at a Halloween fancy dress party.

What Is A Ghoul?

In middle eastern folklore a ghoul was a type of jinni that could shape shift and fed on the bodies of the deceased.
Today ghouls are considered an undead creature, they have been popularised by many TV shows, movies, comics and cartoons. They have many adaptations, some sticking closely to the folklore and some taking inspiration from the middle eastern folklore and adapting it into an original story. As such they have become a very fun and spooky creature to dress up as for Halloween.

The Reaper

The Reaper is death personified; a chilling reminder of the harsh reality of the circle of life. It can be comedic or terrifying depending on your approach to the costume, making it perfect for various Halloween parties.

The Reaper is a personification of death that appeared sometime during/after the plague. Prior to this, the personification of death was often viewed as a kind entity. For the Greeks the personification of death was Thanatos, who was the twin of Hypnos the God of sleep.

The personification of death changed as people became more afraid of death. During the great plague one in five residents died as a result of the plague, as such artists began to paint/draw death in a more macabre manner; the Grim Reaper.

In the early images of the Grim Reaper, death is shown holding weapons such as arrows, spears or crossbows. Some might suggest that these weapons were chosen as a metaphor to show death hunting people. However, as time moved onwards death was painted with a different weapon; the scythe. Some think that this represents death harvesting the souls of humans to send them on their journey to the afterlife.

Filled with history The Reaper is a fantastic choice for Halloween costumes. It’s a costume everyone will recognise, whether you opt for a cartoonish comical approach, or a scary costume.

A Halloween Favourite, The Ghost

Like The Reaper, this costume can be comical or sinister. Ghosts have been portrayed throughout various films, television shows and stories have presented ghosts in a wide variety of ways.

A ghost can be a fantastic costume for those on a budget but equally a ghost can be a fantastic costume for anyone who wants to go the extra mile with their costume. Similar to a zombie the ghost can be incorporated into a wide variety of different costumes, for example; how about a Victorian ghost, or a ghost gladiator, or a ghost Pharaoh. If you want to go into even more detail you could research a local area that is haunted and base your costume after the ghost that is rumoured to be haunting the location. We have a fantastic selection of ghost costumes and costumes from various time eras, so creating your perfect costume is easy with Smiffys-Liverpool.


Why Do The Undead Make Such Good Costumes?


Many of the most popular costumes belong to a group known as the undead. Vampires, zombies, ghouls, ghosts and many other creatures belong to the sinister collection of monsters known as the undead. In short the undead are monsters that were once humans, but after death they transformed into a monster.

Thanks to the diversity of the undead, you can use your creativity and mix and match from various categories. Mix ghoul and skeleton costumes with a staff prop and some makeup and you’ve created a fantastic lich costume. With such a wide selection of costumes, you can unleash your creativity and create something truly magnificent.

Undead costumes are also fantastic for groups. You can create a fantastic unique set of costumes all based upon the same costume. You could all become the ghostly members of a long lost pirate crew. You could either use one of our many ghost pirate costumes, or go for your own unique style, using a pirate costume with ghostly makeup and accessories to create a fantastic and unique ghost pirate crew.
