Welcome to our costume gallery! This is where we display the very best fun and frightening costumes submitted by our incredibly talented readers. These folks would never dream of buying an off the rack costume, and whether they've whipped it together at the last minute or dedicated the entire year to their creation, they're always the talk of the party. So if you're searching for something extra special this Halloween, Costume Works is here for you.

Our readers submit their costumes all year round, so there's always something new to see; from celebrities to video game characters, they've done it all with style. Get browsing through our galleries and you'll pick up some tips and inspiration for your next Halloween party. Most of our readers have also included some background on how they made their costume, so there's plenty of help available.
Once you've settled on an idea and put your costume together, don't forget to take a picture! We'd love to have you join the creative ranks in our gallery and if your costume is extra special, you stand a chance of winning a cash prize in our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.
So what are you waiting for? Whether it's for you, a group, your kids, or even a pet; jump right in and take a look around. We're sure you'll find your best Halloween costume yet.
