Here at HuffPost Comedy, we make it our personal mission to make sure you have all the creative inspiration you need to come up with the perfect Halloween costume... or at least, enough information to help you avoid the worst ideas possible.
With New York Comic Con wrapping up this weekend, we thought we'd share with you a few creative ideas we gleaned from Flickr users who attended the event. Obviously, Comic Cons are a hotbed of amazing costumes, but it's the truly unusual, offbeat or extremely specific outfits that really get our creative juices flowing. Thanks to seeing these, at least one of us is thinking of dressing as, "Something Vaguely Japanese Made From Stuff In My Closet Plus A Sword."
Hello, costume contest blue ribbon!
