If there was ever a time to go all out for a costume, it’s Halloween.

When it comes to Halloween, sometimes there’s nothing better than getting into the spirit of it and embracing your dark side with a fabulous costume. Every year though, we come to the same question on how to dress up: do you go scary or sexy?

Well you know what, who said you had to choose? All it takes is a bit of creativity to get a terrifically terrifying costume looking a little bit sultry - and some well-fitting lingerie, of course.

At Lovehoney, we’re all for sexy Halloween costumes which are equal parts unsettling and unbelievably hot. We have heaps of lingerie to easily tick the second box but we thought we’d help you out with choosing something which can be spooked up.

And if all else fails, you can always use the tried and tested Mean Girls combo of lingerie and some form of animal ears.

Wet look anything

Wet look lingerie is a surefire way to sex up any costume. A covert spy with a murderous streak would work well here. If you’re going to a party, start in a seductive gown or a long trench coat, then later on, strip down into this drop-dead gorgeous catsuit. Splatter some fake blood on your hands and face and it’ll look like you’ve just come back from your latest target.

Ghost nun but make it sexy

The keyhole detailing on our new Fierce range (which shows off your tatas spectacularly) can pretty much make any costume look striking. Pair the cut-out body or dress with a habit, a white collar, some spooky ghost makeup and a cross and you’ll be well on your way to being a deliciously sinful sight.

Wedding night gone wrong

Dress down in some gorgeous white lingerie, a vale and ghost or zombie makeup to become a bride who never made it to their wedding night. People won’t know whether to feel devastated for you as a ghost story or just take in how devastatingly gorgeous you are.

Try a bustier set like this if you’re feeling extra frisky or pair something like this with a pair of white bike shorts if you’d like a bit more coverage.

The gothic style of your dreams

Fulfil your corset fantasies as a medieval vampire in our Fierce Diva bustier. Guipure embroidery and a lace up bust make this a captivating look while faux leather panels add a 90’s edge. Don’t skimp on the makeup for this one—a pale face, dark eyes and fake teeth is what you need to bring this gothic royalty to life.

Hot Patootie

When only a science fiction/double feature will do.

The characters of The Rocky Horror Picture Show running around in their underwear is one of the most iconic parts of the outrageous film. Recreating these costumes is easy to do once you have the base lingerie though so take your pick on whether you want to go for a bustier set, a maid’s costume or a more plain bra set. Whatever you do, don’t forget the fishnet stockings.

Arrrrrr' you coming home with me tonight?

Our Fierce Diva bra set screams steampunk so take this opportunity to be the zombie pirate you’ve always dreamed of being. Even if you haven’t had that particular desire before, this is a great way to flaunt your bod and your makeup skills. Thigh high boots and fishnet stockings will have all your pirate beau bowing down to your undead glory come Halloween night.

Buckled ‘n’ studded

Okay, okay, we know wet look lingerie has dominated this list but can you blame us? I mean, look at this catsuit. If that doesn’t say Halloween we don’t know what does. We’re getting real old school executioner vibes from this but you could also do your own saucy variation of Edward Scissorhands when you pair it with this little number.
