Among the many Elevens and Harley Quinns hitting the town this past weekend, there was another common costume theme emerging to bust all manner of Halloween ghosts!

Ghostbusters director Paul Feig has been tweeting some of his favourite Halloween costumes inspired by Jillian Holtzmann, the character hilariously played by SNL star Kate Mckinnon.

The filmmaker was inundated with images of people of all ages who had grabbed the nearest Pringles can, thrown on their finest boots and goggles and built their own proton packs to show their love for one of the summer's most talked about blockbusters.

Holtzmann was the real breakout character of the movie, not only because of her hilarious dialogue and awesome outfit but also her implied sexual orientation, having an openly lesbian character at the forefront of an action movie being a big step in the right direction for mainstream Hollywood.

So, let's take a moment to celebrate and round up a few of our favourite Holtzmann cosplayers that seriously nailed Halloween 2016.
