Halloween is T-minus four days away!

In need of some Halloween costume inspo? So is the rest of Ireland, according to Google, who found we have been googling like crazy on the subject. Given that Halloween is an Irish holiday that should come as no surprise.

What does come as a surprise, to a 26, nearly 27 year old, is the most searched for costume, which is Blippi. I had to google what Blippi was, but people, and by people I mean children, are obsessed with him it would seem. Another popular choice I hadn’t heard of was Huggy Wuggy but upon a quick google search that fella is in fact terrifying, so makes sense.

Thankfully many of the trending costumes are ones I have heard of, some of which are even easy to throw together in a pinch, so without further ado, allow us to ease your Halloween stresses.

This is probably the route I’m going to go down, having left it completely last minute to decide on what to be.
