From Dobby to Julia Fox: our favourite costumes in Glasgow over Halloween weekend

TRICK OR TREAT yourself to a look at some great costumes

Now that Halloween is over for another year (insert sad face here) we wanted to do a roundup of our favourite costumes from some of our writers’ nights out and from the Instagrams of ghostly Glasgow locals. Like many young people, we hit the clubs and drank enough alcohol to fund a chemistry department.

Throughout Instagram and in The Garage we saw some scary, some funny, and some just downright incredible costumes that we wanted to share with you! Keep reading to see who made the cut and won our *highly* esteemed Halloweekend awards – congratulations to our winners, all we can offer you is bragging rights.
