Here are five of the biggest Halloween costume trends for 2016
1. Stranger Things
The 80s supernatural drama has been one of Netflix's biggest draws this year, and the show's most memorable characters - Eleven and the sartorially, um, uncompromising Barb - are ripe for Halloween.

2. Ireland's Olympic Heroes
The O'Donovan brothers were the feel-good hit of the summer, and their costume should be straightforward enough. Steak, silver and spuds.
3. David Bowie
Anyone wanting to pay homage to those who sadly departed in 2016 won't be left short of options. But Bowie left behind not just a glorious musical legacy, but any number of costume ideas.
Dark, shaggy hair? Been to the gym quite a lot this year? Scythe somewhere within reach? Done.
5. Yeezy model
Remember Kanye's ill-fated fashion show? To recreate the look, try some M&S shapewear, some old runners and a well-practised look of ennui.
