Take a look at Buzzfeed.com’s countdown of 21 brilliantly British Halloween costumes.

As for me? I’m going as Wenda or Wilma, the Girl Friday to Where’s Waldo? or Where’s Wally? (which varies, depending on where you live!) Have a happy Halloween!

  2. Dressing up for Halloween is a relatively new phenomena over here – as is trick or treat, which never existed when I was a kid.
