With all its twists and turns, 2020 might as well have been scripted by Christopher Nolan. We’re practically living through our very own Inception, with no end in sight. 

The pandemic aside, we saw three UFO sightings, NASA discovered water on the moon, and Egyptians decided that cracking a 2500 year-old mummy open was a good idea. All that’s really left is an IRL iteration of The Purge. With Halloween right around the corner, things are only bound to get more spooky.

Don’t worry though, we’re here to give you a break from it all. This October 31st, we’re strictly celebrating the funniest costumes. To give you some inspiration for the big day, we rounded up some of our favourites of all time.
