Asda to launch adult Halloween range

Asda’s range includes an Edward Scissorhands outfit

Growing numbers of adults are celebrating Halloween without their children, prompting retailers to revamp their seasonal lines.

Last year, 66% of adults celebrated the festival without kids, said Asda, which will launch an adult fancy dress range for Halloween 2013.

The range, priced at £20 to compete with costume hire shops, includes Edward Scissorhands and superhero costumes.
