Halloween Cosplay
Fan-Art is a common and understandable pastime. But drawing a fictional character dressed as another fictional character? This is actually common too. See Cosplay Fan Art.

This is a Sub-Trope where webcomic characters will frequently cosplay for Halloween rather than buying or making generic costumes. The characters commonly appear on a single panel, which usually occurs out of continuity and can happen even if the characters come from a setting without a Halloween holiday. The characters can all cosplay to a single medium and/or cosplay as characters that inspired/influenced their own design.

  • Raised to a genre all its own in Buffy Fan Fic. The second season Halloween episode featured a spell transforming everyone in town into their costume. A whole legion of fics, known to the fandom as "Yet Another Halloween Fics", or simply, YAHF take a variation of the episode as their jumping off point. Xander, and occasionally other characters as well, select the costume of a trademarked character. Chaos inevitably ensues.
