The big day is upon us, and that can only mean one thing on Halloween—it’s time to put on those costumes you’ve been working on and delight and spook us in equal measure! We’ve been asking you to send us pictures of your final costumes and works-in-progress for the last few weeks, and here are our favorites so far.
