For the next two weekends the streets of Guangzhou will be awash with toilet paper wrapped mummies, kinky Disney princesses, stumbling zombies and a whole lot of fake blood. As the ghosts and ghastlies crawl out from their lairs to dance on the graves, where will you be? How will you celebrate this night of madness? If you don’t plan ahead you could be left out in the cold with a misfit band of vampires, superheroes and animal onesies. Not the best crew if you have to fight off an army of darkness. To make your life a little easier and to give you more time to create that (serial) killer outfit here is our 2013 Guangzhou Halloween roundup.
