It’s been another scary October 31 in the North East with some of the best costumes we’ve ever seen.

The pumpkins, fake blood and face paint may be packed away for another year, but there’s still plenty of time to get scared of these fantastic spooks.

Cower with fright at a Joker to rival Heath Ledger’s (William Davidson), look at 20-month-old Lucy Stobbart was a very scary (and very sweet) pumpkin and go green with envy at Ella-Rose Davidson’s broken doll make-up, done by mam Donna Marie.

Eve, Ruby and Lily Common all carved their best pumpkins this year, creating three horrifying designs.
