Everyone has their own idea of how you should dress for Halloween. There are those creatives who believe in the power of fake blood and face paint, those who use the night as an excuse to dress up as anything from Kylie Jenner to a banana, to Kylie Jenner dressed as a banana, and those who couldn’t care less.

However you decided to dress for this year’s festivities, we went out on the scariest night of the year to find out what inspired Leeds’ best Halloween costumes.
