Happy Halloween, people! Tonight is the night — so paint on the makeup and get out your lattes and brooms, you Basic Witch. Here are the most jaw-dropping Halloween costumes we've found posted on the Internet this year.
Everything is awesome in this homemade LEGO Movie Costume. The creator even shared how they put the whole thing together over at Instructables.
The INSANELY talented Phi Phi O'Hara dressed in not one, but four amazing costumes for Halloween 2014. Any of these costumes deserve a "Best Dressed" trophy on their own, but all four. It's... so... beautiful.
I mean seriously, this is amazing. Image via Phi Phi O'Hara.

As these photos taken at the Woo Hoo! Classic Simpsons Trivia Chicago meet up attest, this was an EPIC Simpsons costume party. These costumes were deep, deep cuts of Simpsons awesomeness. My personal favorite was Bart's clown bed ("Can't sleep, clown'll eat me") and Lisa's "Floreda" costume made by Homer. But there's so much more over at Buzzfeed, including Kang and Kodos and the Be Sharps.
Every year, former Paralympian (now motivational speaker) Josh Sundquist creates an amazing costume. We've seen him as a flamingo, as the leg lamp from the Christmas Story, and this year he's a foosball player. And it is wonderful.
If we're going to be subjected to thousands of Frozen costumes, at least try and do it with a twist—like the amazing friend of commenter LordRae, who contributed this image to the io9 Halloween Costume party. Vampire Elsa, people!
