1-2 Freddy’s coming for you!

22 Aug

Last month I did a review of a beautiful Plum Pixie costume for ‘Jokers Masquerade‘ over on my other blog ‘Mummy of Many Talents‘ It was there I mention how Jokers Masquerade stocked a super range of Halloween costumes and as a result I’ve been asked to feature a costume from the range right here on the blog!

OK, OK, Halloween Isn’t tomorrow or next week for that matter, it’s still a couple of months down the calendar. Nonetheless it’s worth being prepared especially those of you who have parties planed! After all it’s like any other occasion we still want to look nothing less than our best and if that means sporting a spectacular costume of something a little freaky than so be it!

As I searched through the extensive range of Halloween costumes on the Jokers Masquerade online store I was lost for choice so it took ages to actually make a final decision.

Freddy Krueger (Nightmare on Elm Street) was my choice. It reminded me of my youth when I watched this as a teenage rebel while staying out all night drinking cheap wine at a friends.

The character is famous for his veiny appearance, stripy jumper and knife like fingers that somehow reminds me of those belonging to “Edward Scissor Hands”.

Now I don’t promote horror movies to the children, Little man wouldn’t entertain them even if I did! But recently he did discover my secret package that shamefully wasn’t hid in the most imaginative of hiding places. He therefore took it upon himself to get dressed up, hide behind the living room door before finally jumping out on me almost causing me a heart attack. Needless to say he found it extremely comical


The costume consists of two separate products and three items.

The main part of this Krueger costume consists of a Freddy silicone mask and a large stripy pull over jumper. It’s only available in a range of adult sizes and costs £23.99

The second part of the costume consists of a plastic glove with those knife type fingers. This is sold separately from that of the main costume and can be brought for £8.99

I liked it! It’s of good quality and would last many a Halloween to come (given your not over indulging on to much cake that is)!

The price isn’t the cheapest I’ve ever seen, though it isn’t the most expensive either! The two parts that make up the main costume do look fabulous and if anything you can proudly state your dressed in vintage clobber given its been some years since the film was first aired (somehow my love of vintage always take over).

So, the verdict… A fabulous costume that is ideal for both men and women alike. It’s bound to be a conversation starter at any Halloween party and can even be passed off as a must have vintage piece of clobber.

This is one of a number of great themed Halloween Costumes over at ‘Jokers Masquerade’ Others include that of Chucky ( that demon little red haired doll) Scream, Jason and many others.

Jokers Masquerade offer a vast selection of fancy dress costumes & its not just those for Halloween on offer. Check them out online by visiting their online store by clicking Here!


This is a review post that consists of my own honest opinions and wording. I was not paid to write this review but did receive a sample product for the purpose of this review.

    Scary stuff! My boy loves celebrating Halloween, if someone trick or treated at our door with that he would probably not sleep for a month. Good review.
