As anyone who has attempted to dash to a fancy dress shop over the lunch hour this week can attest, Halloween has gone into overdrive.
Maybe its the glut of star-impersonation opportunities (we know people dressing up as Nicki Minaj and Sophia Grace, Nicki Minajs Essex-based mini-fan), or perhaps its just that Halloween is the one time of the year when non-fashion types get to embrace extravagant dressing.

, the Broken Hearts DJs and Gizzi Erskine are hosting a Were Already Dead-themed party at the Hoxton Pony tonight.
