1. Team Valor/Mystic/Instinct

If you're looking for a more low-key option, you could seize the opportunity to nail your colours to the mast and rep your Pokémon Go team.

(Unless you're Team Instinct, then you might want to keep that quiet.)

2. Rey

The temptation here would be to try this yourself with lots of bandages. Pro tip: Don't do that. Buy yourself a proper costume instead. And a big staff!

(But maybe don't try and bring the staff into the club.)

4. Maleficent

Quite possibly the most badass costume you could ever turn up to a party in. Think of how clean the floor would be, too!

5. Presidential Candidates

If you prefer to terrify people with your policy-making, then this could be just the ticket you need to win the hearts (and votes) of your friends in 2016.

6. Edward Scissorhands

Another classic and ALWAYS hilarious. Just look at those scissors. Great for bumbling about a house party and knocking into stuff.

7. Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne

If you're going to make a statement at Halloween, then you might as well do it properly and wear a garish tuxedo.

Even better for when you meet people who don't get the Dumb & Dumber reference.

8. Harley Quinn

Let's be honest, Harley Quinn's going to be pretty popular this year, so if you're going to do it, you should do it right. Bat, belt, boots – the whole deal

9. The Joker

Yes, admittedly this would be a little pricey. But this is a fine coat. Imagine walking into a room wearing this. Who cares that it's not real crocodile leather. Think of the sense of self-satisfaction!

11. Jon Snow

Halloween isn't everyone's cup of tea. So if you're not really in the mood, you could go as Jon Snow and walk around being gloomy all evening.

Family murdered? Stabbed repeatedly by your mates? Winter's coming? GIVE IT A REST, JON!

12. Daenerys Targaryen

Mother of Dragons, Queen of the Andals, Breaker of Chains, etc., etc. Great for Halloween, though not for speed dating.

Just make sure you chain up your dragon. Because that will almost certainly be nabbed by other partygoers within minutes.

13. Pirates!

Let's be honest, pirate costumes on Halloween are generally terrible. Always the person who couldn't really be bothered and just picked up an eye patch from the joke shop for £2.99.

Fortune favours those who make an effort on Halloween, so why not restore the good name of the pirate costume by actually getting a good one, for once?

14. Sausages!

We've saved the best until last. 2016 is the year of the sausage, so round up your mates and have the sausage party you've always wanted.

Bonus points if you can convince someone to be a condiment. That's hours of guaranteed hilarity.
