Save on Halloween Costume Ideas for Couples, Families and More This October with Our Latest Argos Promo Code!
It’s a strange thing to think that we’re now in the final part of 2020. The C-word is looming, with many shops already starting to fill their shelves with gift sets, goodies and treats, but we can’t bear ourselves to say it just yet. A rule we have among the My Favourite Voucher Codes team is to at least get Halloween out of the way first! So, today we’re going to be looking at some of the latest spooktacular deals to be had with the help of an Argos promo code!
Halloween undoubtedly is going to be a different affair this year. Admittedly, the year 2020 as a whole has been somewhat of a horror movie! Of course the question that’s on everyone’s lips as we enter October is whether or not Halloween will actually go ahead this year. It’s certainly a tricky one, given that there’s quite a few local lockdowns in place across the UK, and of course the current rule of six immediately rules out any parties. At the time of writing, trick or treating hasn’t been officially cancelled in the UK, but many are questioning whether it should be. On the other hand, some are arguing that the concept of wearing costumes and masks fits right in with the rules, and that for some family members, doorstep visits from loved ones might be a nice surprise. With the rules constantly changing, no one can say what’s going to happen over the next couple of weeks. With that in mind, we’re thinking that the best way to celebrate Halloween this year is by doing so at home. We can still get the house decorated, and we can still dress up and enjoy the event - after all, we could all do with some fun! So, whether you’re decorating the house and getting the kids dressed up for some pumpkin carving, or a student spending the evening with your flatmates enjoying a few Halloween drinks, we’re going to show you how you can enjoy plenty of frightfully good savings! As always, if you’d like to browse our full selection of Argos voucher codes - not just for Halloween - you can check them out here!
So, what sort of deals will you find in the Argos Halloween shop this October? Well, pretty much everything you need to make it a fun-filled event. The fancy dress shop is packed with Halloween costumes for the whole family, all at fantastic prices, and you’ll find plenty of ways to turn your home into a spooky haunted house with the impressive selection of Halloween decorations.
Dress to Impress and Save on Halloween Costumes with an Argos Voucher Code
While the possibility of a fright-filled Halloween extravaganza is firmly off the cards this year, that doesn’t mean you can’t dress up and enjoy the event. We’ve rounded up a selection of our favourite costume ideas you’ll find at Argos, with options for kids, families, groups and more. Best of all? The prices start from just £4!
Kids Halloween Costumes
This particular occasion is definitely one for the kids. Let's also not forget that for many little ones it will have been a tough year for them not being able to see their friends, so it’s even more reason to let them enjoy it. There’s a great collection of Halloween costumes for kids at Argos, with outfits for even the littlest of wearers too!
Spooktacular Costume Ideas
Traditionally, Halloween is all about the spooky costumes - the more ghoulish, the better! There’s plenty of great choices for kids who are wanting to embrace their inner terror, such as this Werewolf Costume, which comes complete with a detailed mask and coordinating top and trousers. At just £13 too, you’ll be howling with delight at the price! For those with little fashionistas in the making, this Red & Black Vampiress Costume is sure to be one they’ll love - the full length dress is loaded with glitter for plenty of sparkle and the bat eye mask is the perfect accessory to complete the outfit. Why not add some fangs too and really finish the look? Another popular choice for kids’ Halloween costumes has to be the classic wicked witch, and this Glitter Witch Costume is ideal for those who love a bit of sparkle! It's wickedly colourful and the embellished bat details add some extra spooky charm too. Plus, it’s a steal at only £11!
Superheroes & Princesses
There’s no denying that when it comes to fancy dress costumes for kids, at the top of the list will sit Marvel Superheroes and Disney Princesses. Back in the day, iconic and beloved character costumes would be rather pricey, often being out of the budget for a lot of parents, but thankfully, these days they’re much more affordable. Plus, with the help of an Argos discount code, there’s options for even the tightest of budgets. The Argos fancy dress shop is packed with all of your kids’ favourite DC and Marvel Superheroes, such as this Spider-Man Far From Home Costume, inspired by the latest movie. The padded abs and chest combined with a light up spider symbol will instantly get them feeling ready to save the world! Speaking of saving the world, wannabe superheroes will love this DC Comics Superman Costume too, which has muscle style padding and a 3D logo, complete with the iconic detachable red cape. Both of these super cool costumes are super affordable too - they’re both just £14!
If instead of a superhero, you have a little princess in the making, there’s a fantastic selection of Halloween costumes for girls. With gorgeous Disney outfits inspired by their favourite characters such as Rapunzel, Ariel, Princess Jasmine and Cinderella, there’s plenty to choose from!. We especially love this gorgeous Disney Frozen 2 Elsa Costume, which we know little girls everywhere will go crazy for! The sparkly blue dress is inspired by Elsa’s outfit in the latest Frozen film, and comes with a detachable cape as well as an Alice band featuring Elsa’s signature braid. Another of our favourites has to be this beautiful Disney Princess Belle Yellow Dress, inspired by Belle’s signature ball gown in Beauty and the Beast. The glittering tulle skirt and embroidered bodice is sure to get your little princess feeling like royalty this Halloween, and at just £16, you don’t have to be royalty to afford it either!
Not forgetting the big kids, the selection of Argos Halloween costumes has plenty for the adults too. Whether you’re a student and planning to enjoy a spooky night in with your flatmates, or a parent wanting to join in the fun, there’s so many options to get you inspired.

Group costumes can be a great way to bring everyone together and also, a good idea if you’re not sure what to dress up as in the first place! Additionally, they can also be a fantastic option for families. There’s lots of choice when it comes to family costume ideas - we’ve already mentioned Marvel and DC Superheroes, but there’s plenty more where that came from!

Last Minute Halloween Costumes
While the idea of a Halloween night out might be off the cards for students and friendship groups this year, there’s no reason why you can’t dress up and scale back the fun with a few close friends. Why not dress up and have a horror-movie night, or spend the evening playing Halloween-themed drinking games? There’s no need to even go all in with a full costume either, a few accessories can be all you need! Don’t underestimate the effectiveness of an eerie Halloween horror mask - something as simple as this Skull & Hood Mask is a simple and cheap way to join in the fun. Similarly, you can easily create a simple costume using accessory sets, such as this Devil Dress Up Kit - pair it with a red or even a black outfit and you’ve got an instant devilish look!
