One of life's sweet joys is seeing little people dressed as our fave film characters - and this statement has never been truer than on Halloween.
A mother of twins has been creating amazing costumes for her baby boys as they emulate pop cultures greatest duos.
For the past two years, Leah Hounshell from Columbia, South Carolina, USA, has laboriously crafted her sons Nathan and Grant Hounshell's Halloween costumes from scratch - and the results are amazing.
In 2017, the tots were dressed at Maverick and Goose from 1986 action drama Top Gun. Their sweet outfits came complete with miniature replicas of the character's khaki bomber jackets complete with their stitched badges, topped off by Tom Cruise-esque aviator sunglasses.
But the piece de la resistance had to be a replica of the duos fighter aircraft, which mum Leah lovingly built from scratch. Just look at it!
The following year, Nathan and Grant won Halloween as Harry and Lloyd from Dumb and Dumber - but the outfit creation was anything but dim-witted.
Donning the characters' iconic orange and pale blue suits, the twins look dapper, but mum Leah went one step further by recreating the iconic Mutt Cutts Van.
The dog-shaped van, which Harry spent his life's savings to build in the film, was created by the mum using a wagon and some faux fur. She even added the famous logo on the side for extra realness.
Genius! And for 2019?
"This year they're going to be ghostbusters and the wagon will be the ECTO-1. I made all of their costumes! It's so fun!," Leah tells Tyla.
While Nathan and Grant are winning Halloween, another strong contender emerged today in the form of Irish man Kieran Nuge who'd dressed up as Rebekah Vardy's Instagram account.
Referencing the recent WAG drama, the 25-year-old had cleverly imagined the screenshots we all wish Coleen had posted: those infamous red herring Instagram Stories and that solitary viewer - Vardy.
Naturally, people applauded the costume, with many calling it "genius".
