It’s week two of io9's annual costume show and we’re getting into the Halloween spirit of things with some throwbacks and four-legged cult hit looks. Special thanks to all our comment submissions who are helping us kick into gear for spooky time. We’ve also got a couple editorial team submissions thanks to our furchildren.

If you’re reading this and aren’t clued in yet, this is the spot to get some great Halloween costume and cosplay ideas. All you have to do is leave a photo in the comments below from a past favorite look you want to show off from costume parties or even that epic cosplay you made for a con this year. We even have a slideshow of some of this year’s best pop culture costumes to check out if you need some ideas.


And now here are the submissions thus far:

And here’s a throwback to a costume of my own from a past Halloween party where I was Dani from Midsommar while my husband and pup were the main characters from The Lighthouse.

Show us what you’ve got in the comments! And don’t forget, as always: please post pictures of yourself (and only yourself), and tell us who you are, what you’re dressed as, and a little bit about how you put your costume together.
