As Halloween came and went, festive partygoers and those in the holiday spirit dressed from head to toe in costume attire. Instagram was flooded with pictures from the spooky-themed dress-up holiday on Wednesday night, offering an array of creative get-ups.
Halloween gives people the chance to be whoever they wish for one night—with some costumes reflecting comedy, some imitating a favorite character, and many falling in between.
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, which struck the East coast just days before the annual holiday, many Halloween fans continued to celebrate the autumn holiday. Both young and old donned costumes they had anticipated to showcase before the “Frankenstorm” barreled through New York City.
From video game characters to food-themed outfits, here is a collection of some of the best costumes shared on Instagram.
