in2 Lifestyle: Spooktacular Shopping at The Liberty


HUBBLE, bubble, toil and trouble… It’s the start of the spookiest season and there are some horribly wonderful Halloween goodies in stores at The Liberty Shopping Centre in Romford.
From fiendishly fabulous costumes and accessories, to spine-chilling ghost stories and revolting rewards for troublesome trick or treaters, The Liberty’s 100+ shops cater to every Halloween requirement – dare you miss out?

Fancy dress specialists and undeniable Halloween experts, Pairs boast an exceptional array of seasonal costumes from the fabulous to the frightful.
With Halloween growing in popularity each year, Store Manager, Kin Rana, has a keen eye for annual fancy dress trends: “Day of the Dead style costumes remain popular for 2017, while the return of Stephen King’s IT to cinema screens has seen an influx of creepy clown costumes.

“Another key trend for 2017 is getting creative with your make up. We have lots of ready-made prosthetic items and FX transfers that make professional scars, scrapes and other gory effects easily achievable.”
