Lady Gaga meat dress costume

This costume was hand made from individual pieces of leather. In terms of workmanship, definitely one of the best costumes on show. It’s a shame we don’t have more pictures.

Ghost cyclist costume

This chap got caught out at the Elephant & Castle roundabout one day on his way to deliver a parcel. He rode a ghost bike to the party but had to park it outside.

Here’s how it might have happened:

Super Mario Bros. costumes – Mario and Luigi

As you can see Mario refused to wear his moustache for much of the evening. Luigi didn’t need to draw on fake eyebrows.

Skeletor costume from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe

Back in the day He-Man and the Masters of the Universe featuring He-Man, Man-At-Arms, Orco and Beast Man (amongst others) was the coolest cartoon in town and Skeletor was the ultimate bad guy.

Mona Lisa costume

This rather clever tribute to the Leonardo Da Vinci painting has been given a Halloween blood lust twist – hence the blood around the mouth. Either that or this lady got a bit careless with her make-up.

Queen of Hearts costume from Alice in Wonderland

Based on the Queen of Hearts from the recent film of Alice in Wonderland directed by Tim Burton. His wife Helena Bonham Carter played the Queen.
