We’re not done celebrating Halloween. Check out some these amazing costumes from readers and a few staff. Please take a look and be inspired for future Cosplay needs….*

HYN’s Katie Neely as the Mad Hatter

“I made or modified all pieces to create this costume, with the exception of the hat, which was purchased on eBay do to time constraints. I pinstriped, cropped and dyed my own pants (which you can’t see in the picture), painted a vest and scarf, attached lace to the sleeves of the button up shirt, made a thread belt, stained suede jacket and attached ribbon and cloth pieces from the pockets, cut gloves to be fingerless, added some gauze to my thumb and a thimble and finished it off with Mad Hatter make-up and a black tooth gap.”

HYN’s Terra Olsen as Lara Croft and Virginia Eader as Margot Tenenbaum

David Milano as Ash from Evil Dead II

“Here’s my Ash (Evil Dead II) costume. Yes, that IS a chainsaw on the end of my arm (no, I did not cut my hand off – even if that would have been more authentic). It is a Homelite XL, the same model they used in the movie. I also made the harness and “boomstick” holster to match what is seen in the film. “
