What they dressed up as: A weight loss advertisement, with Gerald Koh as the “before” picture, Adam Piperdy as the “after” picture, and Kimberly Wang as the fitness trainer.

Costume level: 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃

A group costume that not only tells a story, but where the participants are willing to make fun of themselves? This one deserves all the Halloween candy.

Who she dressed up as: Cruella De Vil

Costume level: 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃

Now this what we call committing to a look. Thanks to her makeup, Vanessa is even creepier than the actual Cruella.

Carole Lin’s daughter, Brooklyn

What she dressed up as: A creepy skeleton

Costume level: 🎃🎃🎃🎃

This costume is near-perfect by virtue of Brooklyn’s swagger. We can only imagine how many treats the adorable little ghoul collected in her pumpkin bucket.

What they dressed up as: Annabelle, the evil doll

Costume level: 🎃🎃🎃

While Annabelle’s ubiquity has become kind of a joke in recent years, we’d still feel a little unnerved seeing two life-sized versions of her prowling around the premises.

Who she dressed up as: Super Mario Brothers

Costume level: 🎃🎃

This is a simple, yet effective, team getup (and for once, not a combination of Mario and Daisy, or Mario and Peach)

Elias Soh and Simone Heng

What they dressed up as: The Class 95 DJs pulled out all the stops as Aladdin and Jasmine

Costume level: 🎃🎃🎃

While Elias is hardly identifiable as Aladdin, we’re going to give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he was going for an Aladdin and the King of Thieves look. Meanwhile, Simone is perfect as Disney’s doe-eyed princess.

“I’m really not sure how I’m going to top this for 2018’s Halloween,” Joakim wrote on Instagram. How about something with higher heels? (You have a year to practise walking in them, Joakim!)
