Echo readers sink their teeth into Halloween with these devilishly brilliant costumes

We asked our readers to share their Halloween costumes and impressively there wasn’t a black bin bag in sight!

Local people really embraced the Halloween spirit, and came up with costumes that ranged from adorable to frightening to down-right hilarious.

Here are some pictures of the incredible garbs were received.

First up, we have Jack from Ballyfermot as Captain Smith at the helm of the Titanic. Submitted by Karen Redmond.


Ava McDaid is looking slick as singer Bruno Mars. Submitted by Nicola Moore from Tallaght.


Grace from Clondalkin as a jelly fish. We love this simple and creative costume. Submitted by Lynsey McCluskey.


This one left us speechless. Here we have Geraldine Keating dressed as a one-night stand. Get it? Submitted by Jenny Gibbons from Ballyfermot.

Kelly Cousins from Tallaght took a terrifying turn as Samara from The Ring. This nine-year-old gave us serious chills. Submitted by Martha Cousins.


We have to admire this girl’s loyalty to education and semi-state companies. Here is four-year-old Erin Reynolds from Tallaght dressed as ‘the bus that brings her to school’! Submitted by James Reynolds.

We are big fans of puns here at the Echo. Here is Daniel Finn as the ‘ginger bread man’. Submitted by Martina Ryle Finn from Tallaght.


The Wynne Family from Tallaght all committed to recreating The Silence of the Lambs. Megan, Tillie, Madison and Lottie are dressed as police officers, Clarice Starling and Hannibal Lecter. Submitted by Sandra Dunne.


The Sanderson Sisters were in Clondalkin last night, looking for children to join them for dinner! Lisa, Geraldine and Amanda Haskins recreated Hocus Pocus.

Last but not least, we have a zombie family in our midst. Aoife McAuley from Tallaght submitted this picture, taken in their spooky graveyard.
