  1. I don’t think these are that bad. A little dated some of them, but back then there weren’t all the Halloween shops and amazon. Some of them are quite good.

  4. Rodney Bewes and Alan Price also in there. It’s basically famous people having a laugh.

  5. I have this book- I love the costumes- it is great for ideas and it is fun to see all the celebrities having fun.

  6. I have had this book for years. We had many costume parties and used some of the ideas. I tried to make the pants and suit jacket but the instructions were too vague and I didn’t manage it. Such a great book, though. I am still inspired by it!

  7. I made the sandwich man ! My mum wanted a costume she could take of easily and this was like a tabard. She went to the party as SWell Bread Woman 😂😂😂

  8. My mum had this book – I had the sandwich costume as a 3 year old for a fancy dress parade at school!
