This year York was invaded by girls with whiskers and boys in bloodied clothes, but we went around finding the best of the rest – from a guy straight out of American Horror Story to a girl who may actually be the real Alex Vause.

If you didn’t make the cut this time around, you’d better start planning your costume for next year.
