Halloween is a time to celebrate your defining features and incorporate them into your costume. It is a time where you can embrace the elements of yourself that you spend the rest of the year trying to hide. This approach will ensure that whatever costume you create is a huge success.

Take British actor, Will Poulter as an example. The 24-year-old chose to have the last laugh this Halloween, when he dressed as the evil toy-destroying, Sid from Toy Story.

You may recognize Poulter from hits such as We’re The Millers, The Revenant, Maze Runner and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. His quirky eyebrows make him hard to forget, but they have also caused him to be likened to the Toy Story villain, Sid, who famously attempted to send Buzz Lightyear into real space whilst attached to a firework rocket.

Poulter is no stranger to making people laugh, having started his career as a child on The School of Comedy. So when deciding what to dress as for Halloween, he knew how to deliver the punchline.

Dressing as Sid, Poulter donned a black t-shirt emblazoned with a skull and clutched Woody in one hand, and a magnifying glass in another (Sid used this to burn Woody, if you remember). However, Poulter had the last laugh when he explained why he had chosen to dress as Sid…

His sinister costume was supposed to be amusing, but it was also inspired by a much deeper cause. One very close to the young actor’s heart.
