Chance The Snapper, Alligator Robb Halloween Costumes All The Rage In Chicago This Year

We are loving all your Chance the Snapper Halloween costumes — and so is the man who trapped the creature in Humboldt Park.

HUMBOLDT PARK— The chase and capture of Chance the Snapper was one of the biggest stories in Chicago this year, so it’s no surprise that the gator who stole our hearts — and the bearded Florida man who captured him — inspired several Halloween costumes.

Frank Robb, also known as Alligator Robb, has been feeling the love in Chicago in recent months. Not only did he find a girlfriend here, but he visits often to attend sports games and visit his adoring fans.

This weekend, Robb took to Instagram to share photos of all the gator-inspired looks that were sent his way from people heading to Halloween festivities.

Maybe Nugget the corgi gave everyone the idea.

Check out some of the Chance the Snapper-inspired costumes here:

Ok, it’s not a costume — but we had to share this:
