This is Amplitude‘s third annual almanac of All Hallows amputee artistry, and it seems like the community gets more creative every year. By “creative,” we mean clever, inventive, daring, wonderfully weird, and occasionally kind of psycho.
Click on any image to get a larger view of the trick-or-treater at their original Instagram feed. If you had a really good costume this year that we happened to miss, send us a pic and we’ll add it to the gallery. Happy scrolling.
Best Josh Sundquist Costume
As always, we start with the master masquerader, Josh Sundquist, whose heroic feats of Halloween habiliment need no introduction. This year he returns to the Marvel Universe (a frequent source of inspiration) as Thor’s Hammer. That’s his wife, Ashley, in the mask and cape. @joshsundquist.
Best Costume by This Month's Amplitude Cover Model
Our current cover model, Cairn Atkinson, is usually attired in sunnier and splashier garb than what you see here. Check her out in her standard pinup guise in this month’s edition of Amplitude, and catch up with her on Insta @__flamingo_florence__.
