Forget about those celebrity Halloween costumes, Twitter came through with a ton of iconic costumes and every single one deserves some sort of medal.
Halloween 2018 might be over but we're not done yet. Whether you dressed up and celebrated last weekend, or this coming weekend, there's still so many brilliant costumes that we need to talk about.
Of course, the celebrity world was out in full force this year, with Chrissy Teigen and John Legend serving their best Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip and the Riverdale cast turning out their most gag-worthy costumes yet (Cole Sprouse, we're looking at you) but the real winners this Halloween were the people who shared their costumes on Twitter.
From a thotty Thanos to the absolutely genius 'reverse cowgirl', here are some of the most incredible, inventive and down right iconic Halloween costumes that have gone viral on Twitter:
This mash up between Lara Jean from To All The Boys and Lara Croft Tomb Raider is the most ambitious crossover of all time.

First of all, let’s sort this out. I am not a number, I’m a human being. My name’s Ariel, I’m a holistic vocal coach. I’m a generalist- not a specialist- I’m a generalist. I take into account people’s body, people’s emotions, people’s thoughts and people’s energy. #Halloween2018 pic.twitter.com/Qp9GO5geHS— liv (@livicoxx) October 30, 2018
