Here’s how Boston dressed up as Boston this Halloween

The T, a sports 'hero,' and a certain slide are all represented.

For better or for worse — actually, it’s probably for the better — none of the MBTA lines caught fire this year. So, good for the people who would have otherwise had to jump off a burning train car, but bad for anyone looking forward to another viral T-based Halloween costume.

That said, the MBTA in particular and transportation in general seemed to still be the main muse when it came to Boston-themed Halloween costumes this year. Parking tickets, Boston traffic, even Storrowing — plus dressing up as everyone’s favorite T lines — all made their way into local Halloween parties this year.

That said, there was a particular viral Boston incident that inspired more than one Halloween getup — the infamous “Cop Slide” at City Hall Plaza. Couples seem to very much enjoy depicting the hapless officer and the instrument of his almost-demise.

On other fronts, sports costumes are always a favorite (mainly because you probably already have a jersey or two in your closet). But this year, they can also be frightening, at least as far as the Patriots’ record is concerned:

And outside of city limits, you could do a lot worse than going as everyone’s favorite Route 1 Chinese eatery — if you can get through the door, that is.
