Edinburgh’s Best Dressed: Halloween 2021 edition

There’s nothing scarier than the thought of trying to top these costumes next year

This weekend was officially that time of the year when you desperately pull out whatever you have in your wardrobe, pay for next day shipping on that pink cowboy hat in your Amazon basket and put together the most iconic outfit of 2021.

Halloween is, quite frankly, the best.

We asked you over on Instagram to send us pics of your Halloween costumes this year, and let’s just say you really brought your costume game to the table.

Here’s a selection of our favourites, and spoiler alert: it’s even better than last year’s.

Four actual Queens

I want to break freeee

A genuinely terrifying costume

Because there is nothing spookier than memories of Pollock 2020

And they huffed and they puffed and they slayed the house boots down

The three little pigs, but like, scary

Naughty Nicola

She definitely gets my vote

Sweet Cereal Killer…

I take my Cheerios with blood

“Anita, darling!”

Lowkey worried for the dog

The most iconic trio

Just don’t sit down

Let them drink cocktails

The commitment is unreal

‘Not everyone can be a great chef, but a great chef can come from anywhere’

Minus points for not sourcing a real rat from the pantries

Our favourite husband and wife duo

They should frame this picture

Princess Peach is one lucky lady

Just in time for Movember

Anyone else want to wear wings all year round?

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo

A (lady)bug’s life

Pretty in pink and sparkles

Miss Piggy sure knows how to party

She had an oinking good night

The background, the costumes, the vibe

The duo we never asked for, but the duo we deserved
