Forget all of those celebrities who dressed like Eleven from Stranger Things (again). Enough with the sexy versions of, in a lot of cases, characters or other celebrities who are already sexy to begin with. This year, if you wanted to catch out attention, you had to make us laugh by putting some actual thought or wit into your dress-up routine. Or, at the very least, wear some sort of nostalgic throwback costume that was just obscure enough to stand out among the rest. Those were the basic guidelines we went with. Now it’s your turn to let us know if you agree with our criteria.

The giant tricycle sealed his spot on this list, especially since Jigsaw makes us laugh in his own right.

I don’t actually know who this guy is, but his Marge costume is certainly…funny (though I’m still not positive that’s the best word for it).
