Chicagoans know how to get creative with their Halloween costumes, and there are few places where their ingenuity is more obvious than at the Northalsted Halloween Parade. The annual end-of-October bash welcomes hundreds of costumed attendees to a stretch of Halsted Street in Boystown where they get to strut their stuff in front of a crowd. We spotted decapitated royalty, every member of KISS and an entire troupe of Thriller dancers. Snack on some candy and gather some inspiration for next year's get-up with our photos of the best costumes that were trotted out at the Northalsted Halloween Parade.
