For anyone who loves a good spook or a game of dress-up, All Hallows' Eve is the most wonderful time of the year. Half the fun of getting ready for Halloween is planning, scheming, viewing, and preparing a fantastic costume for the big day – or weekend, depending on who you are – when ghouls and goblins play.
While plenty of fun classic costumes turn up each year, topical costumes and outfits that send clever subliminal messages are arguably the most fun to see.
Whether you’re going the nostalgic Halloween costume route of ‘90s Nickelodeon, the mainstream horror route of the Nun, or the avante-garde, statement-making choice of Late-Stage Capitalism, the options for creative Halloween 2018 costumes abound, carving out a time capsule of creepy Halloween memories for years to come.
Vote up the the creative and timely costumes that scream "2018!" so loud it's downright scary.
