1. Stranger Things

Eleven 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

O'Donovan Brothers
 

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.

4. Poldark

Dark, shaggy hair? Been to the gym quite a lot this year? Scythe somewhere within reach? Done.

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.
