And The Chicago Costume Contest Winner Is …

From adorable "L" trains to "The Bear" references, Chicago dressed in style this Halloween.

  • Credibility:

CHICAGO — Block Club asked readers from around the city to send us their best Chicago-inspired Halloween costume — and they delivered with outfits colorful, funny and cute.

And the winner is …

Caroline Rendon, of Rogers Park. Caroline was chosen at random to win the raffle, getting Block Club merch. Caroline’s dressed up as a classic Chicago corner bar, complete with an Old Style banner.

“I love I love dive bars, and that’s the main reason for this costume,” Caroline said. “But I also value the role neighborhood bars play in building community and gathering people together.”
