  • Youngsters descended on the city in a variety of costumes, from playboy bunnies to murderers and clowns 


On Friday night, thousands of party-goers flooded the streets of London in celebration of the Halloween weekend.

Birmingham Revellers were dressed up in outrageous costumes on Broad Street. They ranged from clowns and Friday-the-13th killers to skimpily-clad playboy rabbits to creepy clowns.

A few chose to wear Squid Game masks as a nod towards the violent Korean drama on Netflix, which has been viewed by 142 million households.

The youngsters may have ventured out in the dry, cold Birmingham evening but by the early morning of the next day, a bank of rain had moved in from the east to dampen their night.

The mercury dropped to 9C, which was undoubtedly chillier than usual for those who wore less clothing. Many chose to bare their legs in the cold West Midlands evening. 

In the hope of a wild night, West Midlands Police placed their mobile prison van on public streets.

Angelic to the last, some revellers went for fancy dress that was a little less gruesome and possibly a fair deal warmer than others, although not by much. The woman on the left dressed in stripy black and white socks that went over her knees, matching the sleeves on her forearms. Meanwhile her friend dressed as an angel, with both donning their Converse plimsolls

Angelic to last, some revellers chose fancy dress that was a bit less gruesome, perhaps a fair amount warmer than others, but not by much. The woman on the left wore stripy black and brown socks that reached over her knees, matching her sleeves. The friend dressed as an angel with her Converse plimsolls.

Some people chose to wear more revealing clothes, and two women wore police outfits that were not common at West Midlands police.

Others chose a classic playboy girl costume, complete with a bunny tail and a dress that elevated the meaning of thigh high. 

One woman decided to make a saintly theme of the night of horrors. She wore a white pleated skirt and a shimmering floral corset with fluffy halo.

As a result of the Covid pandemic it was the first time that clubs had Halloween nights in two years.

People were happy to share their biggest smiles. However, some smiles were more artificial than others. One girl was wearing a creepy smiling mask while another held a large, bloodied knife.
