It’s that time of year again when kids and adults alike don their costumes to celebrate Halloween. While store-bought costumes are great in their own right, it’s the giant, detailed costumes garner the most attention. As the saying goes’ go big or go home’ and the costumes in this roundup certainly prove that sometimes bigger is better.

Besides being large, these costumes are unique in their own right with their creators putting their own spin on the strange and unusual. From big digital heads to intricate monster designs are featured in all of their DIY glory. Nothing was purchased from a specialty costume store but rather handcrafted in spooky detail.
