Halloween is that time of year when we get to fulfill lost dreams of being the doctor, pilot or pop star we aspired to be as children — or explore more contemporary characters. Wherever you find your inspiration, Halloween is certainly an occasion to masquerade in a fun costume and be whoever you want to be.

The Root wants to celebrate our readers' creativity with a gallery of fun Halloween photos. Upload your costume picture to our Facebook page, along with your name, when the photo was taken and a few words about the character you're portraying and why, and we will feature you in our Halloween Day slide show!
