It's that time of year again: one of the few occasions where you'll see an Irish rugby legend enthusiastically dressed as Batman's Robin alongside his actress wife, currently starring on a hit tv show, dressed as a unicorn, trick or treating with their young children around Dublin and no one will bat an eye.

Regardless of where you stand on Halloween, or the endless debates this week on the American-isation of the holiday in Ireland, at the very least it makes for some seriously entertaining pictures from around the world, celebrities or not.

Brian and Amy opted for suitably wholesome costumes as they were celebrating their children Sadie (five) and Billy (three).

Xpose host Karen Koster and husband John McGuire also had a Batman-themed bash with sons JJ, Finn and baby daughter Evie.

Things took a non-PG turn when influencer James Kavanagh delivered two of the best Halloween costumes this year, firstly, dressing as his hairless cat Diana, who is also something of an Instagram star...

...and later, with re-creating that iconic Titanic scene with boyfriend and Currabinny cookbook partner Wililam Murray.

Model Roz Purcell had an early Halloween bash over the long weekend, dressing as at "online troll", taking inspiration from the Troll doll. "I'll be handing out shitty pointless comments all night on sticky pads,on people's backs because obviously I'm that much of nob [sic]," she said, explaining her costume, adding it was "every bloggers [sic] worst nightmare".

Dawn O'Porter and husband Chris O'Dowd dressed as human whoopie cushions, with Dawn sharing some truly inspiring behind the scenes pictures, saying: "No you and YOUR husband are going to a star studded Halloween bash dressed as giant whoopie cushions, actually."

Around the world, international stars also let their creative juices flow with costume ideas, including the Kardashians, who borrowed previously worn looks from the runway for their epic Victoria's Secret Angel costumes. All the sisters seemed thrilled with the idea, particularly Kourtney, who wrote on Instagram, "I opened the show. Thank you @victoriassecret for making me the first ever 5’1” angel."

Jessica Simpson, who is expecting her third child, made creative use of her bump dressing as Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1988 film Twins.

There once was a time when Halloween wasn't complete without knowing Heidi Klum's costume, but the supermodel is just one of many stars who have a penchant for going all out these days. Her look, as Fiona from Shrek, however, was still show-stopping.
