Tell us: What was your greatest ever Halloween costume?
We’re looking for your best rig-outs down the years. Halloween costume pride!

IT’S ALMOST HALLOWEEN, ladies and gents. And round these parts, Halloween only means one thing.

Yep: Getting gussied up as something ridiculous, going to a house party where you hardly know anybody, and ending up in tears on the shoulder of Gandalf.

So what’s your Halloween costume favourite? Send any photos to, or use the “Send a Photo/Video” link below. We’ll put the best in a special slideshow feature.

To get you started, a quick survey of the and offices revealed a chequered history of dressing up.

We’re not going to tell you who these costumes belong to, but feel free to guess:

I once cut up my mother’s tiger-print bedside rug to make a Flintstones-style toga. She wasn’t delighted. To be fair, I was 19.
I was Madonna last year, which finally gave me good use for a bullet bra that I spend stupid money on.
I dressed up as a yuppy. Slicked back hair, communion suit and fake mobile phone. Instant Gordon Gekko.
One year I dressed up as a Rubik’s Cube.
One year I dressed up as a television. I wore a giant box which previously contained crisps – I got it from our local shop – and glued a page from a magazine across the front, which was supposed to show a cooking programme. However after two or three houses the page blew away, and after trying to persuade people at the doors that I really was a television, I had to give up after a while and just told them that I was just a crisp box.

So now you know our innermost secrets. What’s your Halloween greatest hit?

Those details again: Send any photos to, or use the “Send a Photo/Video” link below. Maybe we’ll include some of our own too…
