Some people take Halloween very seriously. Not content with straight-from-the-store versions of Super Man or Disney princesses, these people get extremely creative.

Reddit is holding a virtual Halloween costume contest, and entries have been pouring in from all over the world. These submissions are some of the most clever, frightening, and intense homemade outfits we’ve ever seen.

From a Jack Skellington perched on two-foot stilts to a zombie Stormtrooper that got the attention of Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca himself!), here are our 17 favourite ones.

General Antiope from 'Wonder Woman'

The leader of the Amazon warriors.

This homemade costume was put together by Jessica, from Knoxville, Tennessee. It's 80% leather, 5% pleather, and 15% worbla.

Georgie and his boat from Stephen King's 'IT'

'You'll float too.'

The couples' costume of the year?

Predator

A terrifying homemade Predator costume from the movie franchise.

Reddit user Paul handmade this scary costume for his son, Jason.

Universal Healthcare

'The scariest costume in America!'

Not many people got the 'universal healthcare' joke.

Slinky Dog from 'Toy Story'

It takes two to make this adorable canine toy come to life.

Boxes, paper mache, spray painted piping, and ribbon holsters make one heck of a costume.

Zombie Barista

'Too...many...unicorn Frappuccinos...'

This super creative take on the most popular Frappuccino of the year is horrifying.

Marty McFly from 'Back to the Future'

Complete with a real DeLorean!

He knew the car would come in handy someday....

A headless bride

Some girls want to dress up as princesses. Others are different.

Jill won the costume contest at her school! Paper mache and Goodwill clothes go a long way.

Mr. and Mrs. Pac-Man

Another great couples' costume.

These eight-bits had to use a guide to walk around their party.

Silent Hill nurse

The doctor will be in to see you shortly.

This Silent Hill nurse also doubled as a heck of a cosplay.

Jack Skellington from 'The Nightmare Before Christmas'

The Pumpkin King himself, with his devoted dog Zero!

This 8'-tall Jack (he was wearing two-foot stilts) had a Sally by his side too (she's not pictured)!

Zombie Stormtrooper from 'Star Wars'

Someone's been shot by Rebel Alliance soldiers way too many times...

The best part about this costume? Actor Peter Mayhew (who plays Chewbacca) gave it a shout-out in the comments section!

Eleven from 'Stranger Things'

We definitely don't want to mess with this 'pre-teen.'W

A very convincing Eleven, minus her blonde wig.

Toad in Mario Kart

The most adorable racer in all the Mushroom Kingdom.

This kid and his mother have also created from-scratch costumes of Chucky from 'Child's Play' and Miss Argentina from 'Beetlejuice' in the past.

Marvin the Martian, from 'Looney Tunes'

'There was supposed to be an Earth-shattering ka-boom!'

This Marvin costume is eerily accurate.

Samara from 'The Ring'

'Her goal every year is to scare the adults.'

I hope we won't have to worry about a mysterious 'seven days' phone call after this...

Emmet and Wyldstyle from 'The Lego Movie'

Everything is awesome... especially these costumes!

These are the most elaborate Lego minifigs we've seen yet!
