It's almost Halloween — the time of year when the whole world does cosplay. Every year, the Halloween superstores roll out their new line of costumes that are vaguely reminiscent of the year's hit movies and television shows. Except a whole lot sluttier.

Check out our round-up of the trashy, strange and occasionally quite good costumes you can buy this year. Including the traditional "steampunk" and "steampunk vampire" costumes, that get updated every year these days. Now, at last, you have something to wear to your local steampunk gathering, that'll be just as good as what they spent months making from scratch! Or if not, you can bite them.

Spider-Man costumes, ranging from decent to "What happened to Spidey?"

It would seem that the traditional recognition of "Halloween" has been well and truly usurped in pursuit of the almighty dollar. Or instead of "Halloween" it should these days be known as "Dressup Night".

Sorry, I see little or no relationship in these or any other of the commercialised crap I see to the reason the event is celebrated. Not least of which is that it has nothing at all to do with super-heroes (unless you regard Saints as all-American heroes) - it's about the dead. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halloween
