It’s that time of year again! Time when the neighbours mysteriously put up spooky decorations and the kids start asking if they can go trick or treating with their mates. If you’re like many Aussies, the whole Halloween thing has taken you by surprise. It’s not until TODAY, the day before THE DAY that we even thought we’d need a costume, let alone have one ready to go. The good news is, your kids can still get their spook on as there are so many fantastic costumes you can literally throw together in a matter of minutes. Here are a few last minute Halloween costumes to help you out!
