SALT LAKE CITY β€” Ah, Halloween. It’s not only the sweetest holiday but also the one where you find out just how creative your friends, family and neighbors can get with their costumes.

It’s the perfect time to dress up as your favorite superhero or celebrity, channel popular movie and TV characters, completely alter your face with makeup (or scare people with it) and even play on pop culture in the most creative ways.

We love all that skele-fun here at KSL.com, and what better way to celebrate Halloween than with a costume contest? We asked readers to submit photos of their costumes and received nearly 100 entries. Your costumes were spooky, they were funny, and some of them were just downright adorable.

Our staff picked three finalists from those submissions, and we gave KSL.com readers until 4 p.m. to vote for the best one. Voting is now closed and we have a winner...

The prize β€” a $20 gift card and major bragging rights β€” goes to Costco sample kid. πŸ‘
