Every Halloween, zombies, corpses and the undead invade neighbourhoods, workplaces and parties. Pale make-up and torn clothing is commonplace, and you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a "dead" co-worker, dressed as a fresh (or not-so-fresh) cadaver. Think outside the coffin-shaped box, and go beyond the traditional death-themed costumes with unique, crowd-pleasing ideas.

Little Dead Riding Hood
Many Halloween parties have a theme revolving around books or fairy tales. Little Red Riding Hood is a simple enough fancy dress, incorporating a dress, a red hooded cape and a basket. Add latex scars, pale make-up and some fake blood, and you become Little Dead Riding Hood, a tragic victim of a wolf attack. As a bonus, the basket is handy for trick-or-treating.
Hershey's Kiss of Death
Hershey's Kisses, a popular product from the Hershey Company, are foil-wrapped, chocolate treats. Create a Hershey's Kiss costume from cardboard and silver fabric or buy a pre-made Hershey's Kiss costume. Accentuate the negative with facial make-up in a corpse or skull theme. Add a paper or fabric tag with the trademark "Hershey's Kisses" note written in blue lettering at the point of the costume, grab a sickle, and you are the Hershey's Kiss of Death.
Grim Reaper variations
Many costume retailers sell long, hooded robes and sickles for a quick Grim Reaper costume. Give the costume a unique twist by combining the long, curved sickle head with an inexpensive broom, and the Grim Reaper is now the Grim Sweeper. Or add heavy gold necklaces, sunglasses, a backwards baseball cap and a large, portable radio to the traditional Grim Reaper costume, and the Grim Rapper has joined the party.
