We see a lot of amazing costumes—but not all of us are crazy talented cosplayers. Here’s a sampling of what you can expect from Avengers: Age Of Ultron this Halloween. Most of them are… well, passable at best (the Thor wig and Tony Stark facial hair are actually pretty hilarious).

Check out some more pics after the break…

Redditor wlp0604’s two little girls wanted to be Cardcaptor Sakura and Kiro for Halloween (from the Cardcaptor Sakura manga), and since those aren’t costumes you’ll find at the store, their Mom sewed them these beauties. She made every part of their costumes herself, except for the little one’s shoes and her leggings which were a last minute addition because it was chilly outside.

On the other hand, that’s an awesome dad right there.

Talk about some stellar Teen Titans cosplay! A mom named Caroline sent us these pics of her daughter in her Raven Halloween costume. Caroline also noted that, “We couldn’t find purple boots in time, so she made her own with duct tape.” Well, despite the boots’ impromptu nature, I have to say that they came out great. Awesome job!

aladdin costume

Every year, I tell myself I’m going to make a really cool Halloween costume and every year, I fail to do so. I’ve figured out why. It’s because people like You Tuber erecktshawn make things like this awesome Aladdin costume and I know I’ll never be this clever.

Check out the video after the break to see it in action. It’s great.

Ben McKenzie Halloween

Ben McKenzie embraced his role on Gotham for Halloween: he dressed as an older James Gordon complete with a trench coat, big glasses, a silver wig and faux mustache. It’s like looking into the future.

Picard and Riker

Annalee Horne’s friend Tom Schutt has been on quite the journey since last Halloween. In 2013, he dressed as Captain Picard from Star Trek because he was going through chemotherapy for Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and lost his hair in the process. For Halloween this year, Schutt had recovered and dressed as Commander William Riker. He got the idea to be Riker from his fiancée.

Horne tweeted the above picture, and it spread across Twitter in no time. She followed up with the statement after the break…

Wow, as far as original halloween costumes go, I’m pretty sure this one’s the best I’ve seen in ages. Brock Wilbur posted the above pic on Twitter and noted the following:

This costume is running a functional version of Portal that moves as she aims the gun. GO HOME HALLOWEEN IS WON

Best. Costume. Ever.

terracotta warrior 2

This Terracotta Warrior cosplay by the aptly named terracotta_warrior on Reddit is a great example of thinking outside of the box when it comes to cosplay.

Apparently, he put this costume together in about three days and went through 8-10 cans of textured spray paint. The armor is light foamcore cut and glued to a shirt with glued on googly eyes for the rivets. The rest of it is made from thrift store clothing and spray paint. The makeup is airbrushed on with some pencilled detailing.

As for the base, it’s styrofoam that was either carried when he was on the move or “kicked along the road a few feet before I set up the pose again”. He also noted that his arms were super tired at the end of the night. No doubt.

Superman wheelchair costume

I’ve seen several creative wheelchair costumes, but this Superman one is exceptional. The hero flies over the roofs of Metropolis and keeps the city safe while rolling along, and I bet this kid really did feel like a superhero while in the costume.
