So fright night is behind us for another year, though there's still a tonne of Halloween hijinks to be had over the weekend if you haven't had your pumpkin fix just yet. But for those of you fighting your way through Friday so you can get your fancy dress on, or those of you hungover from all the costume commotions last night, we've decided to cheer you up with some easy Friday reading. The good, the bad and the downright dodgy costumes from Glasgow bars, pubs and clubs this witching week, there were lots of monsters, a few minions and, of course, one Miley Cyrus. 

Introducing the Inaugural DesignMyNight Halloween Costume Awards.

Brace yourselves.  

The award for "Would They Be Friends in Real Life?" goes to...

Mary Poppins, a Beatle, (we're gonna go with Paul???) and Ariel, The Little Mermaid herself, hanging out at Cirque this Halloween. We have a feeling Mary and Ariel might just be our fave new Dream BFFs. (pic via Cirque's Facebook page.)

 

The "I hope my future employers don't see this on Facebook" award goes to...

This dapper dude. Who may just live to regret his choice wearing pink fur trimming to Bamboo(Pic by John W. Allison for Bamboo)

 

The award for "Hot...[insert something nondescript here]" goes to...

These three babes in Cirque are dress as, zombies/ravaged backing dancers/members of a chain gang? Ah who cares, they're hot. And that's all that matters at Halloween, right?  (pic via Cirque's Facebook page.)

 

The "Ready for Movember" award goes to...

This old man twosome in Kokomo with their Chrimbo jumpers, flat caps, pipes and tashes, are all set to grow their 'mos. (Pic by John W. Allison for Kokomo) 

 

The award for "Most Utterly Terrifying" goes to...

This guy. Feather boa-clad, half-yard cocktail-holding, Hulk Hogan, in Campus. This is the kind of costume nightmares are made of. (Pic by John Clark for Campus)

 

The "You're gonna be hot dancing in that" award goes to...

This pretty dang cool looking Daft Punker in Sub Club. We sure don't want to be inside that helmet come 3am (Pic via Sub Club Facebook page)

 

The, "Is it wrong that we kind of want to eat you?" award goes to... 

This wily pair of Jelly Beans in Faktory. They must have been tough to dance in, but bonus points for creativity and...NOM. (Pic via Faktory Facebook page)

 

The award for "Gender Diversity" goes to...


This he-she, nurse-doctor at The Garage. Though he doesn't look all too pleased about it. We would have preferred a female doctor and male nurse, but hey, there's always next year. (Pic by Conor McGrath, for The Garage)

 

The award for "cutest couple" goes to...

Shaggy and Scooby Doo - the most adorable duo in all of Glasgow this Halloween, hanging out in Bamboo. (Awesome hair BTW Shaggy!) (Pic by John W. Allison for Bamboo)

 

The award for "Outstanding Contribution to Patriotism" goes to...

The award for "Sexiest Male" goes to... 

This hot young thing. Front and centre stage at the Milk Halloween party in Flat 0/1. Wowza. (Pic via Flat 0/1 Facebook page)

 

The award for "I didn't know pumpkins had a midriff" goes to...

This fella, who's clearly as surprised as us, but loving the attention in the Faktory. Looks like raiding your wee brother's costume collection pays off though, eh? (Pic via the Faktory's Facebook page)

 

The award for "Committing to the role" goes to...

Mr Avatar, who gets massive props from us for effort. We can't even imagine what kind of mess you made in the shower after this, but it was worth it. Even his mate at Bamboo looks impressed. (Pic by John W. Allison for Bamboo)

The "Inaugural Sharknado" award goes to... 

This guy. Who seems to be in a spot of bother at Flat 0/1. (Pick via Flat 0/1 Facebook page)

The "Random crap we made from cardboard boxes" award goes to...  

These lovely ladies in Bamboo. We'd like to say a, note pad and a... No seriously, what the hell are you supposed to be? Who cares, you look happy. (Pic via John W. Allison for Bamboo)

The "How can you breath in that costume?" award goes to...

Doctor Zoidberg at the Polo Lounge. We can't imagine this was an enjoyable experience, but hey, it looks frickin' fantastic. (Pic by Jame McFadyen for Polo Lounge)

The award for "Most people you can cram into a Buckys selfie" goes to...

And finally... 

 

The "there's always one" award - Sponsored by Miley Cyrus - goes to... 


Miley herself. Papped outside Hummingbird on Halloween. We did spot another few Mileys around town, but the pics weren't suitable for human consumption. (Pic via Hummingbird Facebook page)

So what's the best, worst, downright dodgiest costume you've seen around Glasgow this year? There's still a couple of nights of post-Halloween partying to be had, so if you spot any more, send them our way. Seriously, we can't get enough of 'em.
