TOP 10 KIDS HALLOWEEN COSTUMES

No-one loves Halloween more than the kids. But with so many choices, it’s hard to pick just one costume (it’s ok, we understand the struggle). So, to help out, we did some research and put together a list of what we think are going to be the top 10 kids costumes of 2015:

MINIONS

These little guys are a guaranteed hit amongst the kids. We’ve literally seen them everywhere we go, and to be honest we’re not complaining – they’re so cute!

MONSTERS

You can’t go wrong with a creepy monster costume on Halloween. What monster would your kids dress up as? A cute one? A scary one? Can’t decide? Not to worry, we’ve got them all!

SPIDERMAN

Every kids hero. Let’s be honest, your little boy has pretty much got the speed and agility, all he needs now is the costume to fully become the web-spinning superhero we know and love!

ZOMBIES

If your kids want to be something super freaky this year, then they will love dressing up as these flesh-eating, brain-hungry beasts. They’ll scare the bejesus out of everyone, plus they’re super easy to make. Some zombie makeupfake blood and torn clothes and you’re good to go! Alternatively, an even easier option would be one of our zombie Morphsuits…just saying…

STAR WARS

Star Wars has a special place in our hearts, no matter how old we are. Kids could dress as the old but wise (and insanely badass) Yoda, the dark lord otherwise known as Darth Vader or the beautiful Princess Leia. Many choices, you have!

CINDERELLA

We’re pretty sure that there’s not one little girl on this planet that wouldn’t love to dress up as a princess. I mean, grown women would even jump at the chance of becoming their favourite Disney princess. The release of the new Cinderella movie didn’t help matters – there are little girls dying to get that beauty of a dress that Cinderella wore to the ball. If you’re child is one of them, get them this deluxe Cinderella movie costume!

PETER PAN

Seeing the trailer for the new Peter Pan movie brought back loads of memories. Once upon a time we all wished this boy would swoop in and save us from adulthood. He was one of our all time favourite Disney characters. Now your child can become him with our awesome peter pan costume!

FROZEN

Yup, we’ve still got Frozen Fever folks and chances are, so do your kids. So check out our range of Frozen costumes, we’ve got costumes ranging from Elsa to Olaf!

MARIO

We all love a bit of Mario Kart…actually, we all love Mario full stop and he’s still popular today amongst all the kids. Get a couple of friends involved and your kids could go as a whole Mario crew!

SLENDER MAN

So for those of you who are fortunate enough to not know anything about Slender Man, we’re going to spoil that a little for you. Slender Man is a tall thin figure who wears a black suit and has a completely blank face. He has the ability to stretch or shorten his arms and make everyone crap their pants. Awesome…

Dutch woman’s bra cure for cleavage wrinkles a hit

AMSTERDAM Rachel de Boer finally told some friends a secret she’d kept for years: She slept with stuffed socks sewn between the cups of an old bra to prevent cleavage wrinkles and smooth out her neckline.

Three years later, a professionally designed and manufactured version of that same contraption is sold in 150 lingerie shops across the Netherlands and Belgium, approved by a research institute and getting interest from retail outlets in Germany, Austria, Portugal, Spain, Britain and France.

“It started out as my secret, I didn’t want to talk about my wrinkles or the bra I made, which was ugly,” de Boer told Reuters on Thursday. “But I slept like that for seven years and then I turned 40, told my friends and they admitted they also had this problem.”

Sceptical but curious, her friends also wanted sock bras to smooth out their cleavage wrinkles. So De Boer made five more versions of what is now called “La Decollette.”

Her friends were so enthusiastic about the results, they encouraged the former real estate agent to stop selling houses and design an anti-wrinkle night bra that women would want to wear to bed.
La Decollette, which has a soft, padded rectangular piece of material between the collar bone and the sternum and sits between the breasts, was born and to De Boer’s amazement, has addressed a problem many women all over Europe seem to share.
The cupless bra is worn at night and keeps the breasts “in place” to prevent the compressing of breasts together which De Boer says can create vertical wrinkles.

“If you sleep on your back, then you will never have this problem,” she says adding, “Le Decollette works because the breast are separated through the night.”
De Boer’s anti-wrinkle bra has been a hit at lingerie shows around Europe and she said it also has the stamp of approval from the Parisian research institute CERCO or Center d’Etudes et de Recherches Cosmetologique.

CERCO carried out research on women between 35 and 60 years old and declared that those who wear the bra can see cleavage wrinkles reduced significantly after 24 hours, she said.

De Boer sold 12,000 of the 50-euro one-size fits all, anti-wrinkle bras last year, expects to sell 25,000 this year and 50,000 next year.
Talks are also underway to ship the bras to the United States and Canada.
