It’s been extremely hard to whittle it down, but we think we’ve found our favourite Halloween costumes ever.
And for a change, this gallery is not dominated by blood and gore – take the mini Wayne and Garth or the little boys who would Kiss a run for their money.
If your heart-strings aren’t tugged by Buster’s wheelchair being turned into an ice cream van then, quite frankly, you’re a monster.
Possibly our favourite outfit though is Beast Jesus. Remember the Spanish pensioner who tried to restore a 100-year-old fresco of Christ?
Well someone has turned Elias Garcia Martinez’s distinctly simian efforts into a costume… and it just might be the best thing we’ve ever seen.
So we’ve covered little kids, rock stars, art projects gone horribly long and we’ve thrown in a bit of blood and gore in for a good measure. Just a little bit.
Got an amazing Halloween costume? Want to share it with us? Email us the pictures and we'll publish them #halloween firstname.lastname@example.org

Elias Garcia Martinez's distinctly simian efforts to restore a 100-year-old fresco of Jesus are still causing mirth. <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/03/this-beast-jesus-hallowee_n_1936338.html?ir=Arts" target="_hplink">And so is this spectacular costume. </a>
