Halloween, or All Hallows’ Eve, is an annual celebration held on 31 October. In America, it’s a day when kids and the young at heart can play dress-up, take on a different persona (with no judgement from others) and go door-to-door trick-or-treating.
While knocking on people’s door for treats seems inconceivable in Singapore (unless you are staying in an expatriate enclave, of course!), the commercial aspect of Halloween flourishes thanks to the horror niche. From elaborate shopping mall decorations and spook-inducing menus to spook-tacular events such as the Halloween Horrors Night at Universal Studios, Singaporeans are embracing the spirit of Halloween and aren’t afraid to spend some money to make the night an unforgettable one.

Halloween Group Buy Ideas:
1. Halloween Costumes
Costumes are undeniably the best and most salient aspect of Halloween. Kids love to dress up as their favourite cartoon characters. Adults delve deep into the horror genre for cues and ideas. Regardless, pop culture provides a wealth of inspiration for Halloweenies. And when there is a trending character, you bet many will want to dress as said-character.
Examples: Costumes ‘N’ Parties, Costume City, Awesome Costumes
2. Halloween Decorations
If your family takes All Hallows’ Eve seriously as the Americans do, you will be hard-pressed not to turn your home into a haunted mansion. Props like skeletons, tombstones, spiderwebs and pumpkins are great for setting the mood and getting everyone into the spirit of Halloween.
Examples: Pan-In-The-Box, Party & Gifts, AZ Gift & Trading
3. Kid’s Halloween Cooking Class
For the aspiring Junior Masterchefs who love to help out in the kitchen, All Hallows’ Eve provides the perfect learning opportunity. Make tasty treats of the ghoulish kind and pick up valuable culinary skills along the way. Some classes even allow a parent to join in the kitchen mania!
Examples: Spoonful, Creative Culinaire, Expat-Kitchen
4. Family Photography Session
Want to capture a joyous family moment, but sick of the usual strait-laced family portrait? We couldn’t think of a better time to take a new family portrait than a festival like Halloween.
From bringing The Flintstones to life to recreating the kooky Addam Family, you get to go all out. Show off the family’s creativity, the crazier the better. This is a fun way to get the family together.
Have a blast and give the phrase “dress to kill” a whole new meaning!
