You could go as a vampire, a ghost or Frankenstein's monster, but that would just be cliche and boring.
Instead, why not look to your favourite TV characters for inspiration? You could choose a character from a scary series like "American Horror Story."
Or you could throw everyone for a loop by going as a sitcom character. George Michael Bluth, that's one we'd enjoy. Or Kenneth the Page from "30 Rock."
We here at The Huffington Post Canada have a long list of characters that we know would inspire outstanding costumes this Halloween. And if we've missed a good one, please tell us in the comments.
