With Halloween just a couple of days away, social media is already glowing a special kind of orange as everyone shows off their take on the newest star from Philadelphia, Flyers mascot Gritty.
Some did their best to stay true to the integrity of the mascot, perhaps some even with the help of our handy how-to costume guide.
Here are a few that went all-in on Gritty, even if it meant orange face paint and/or seductive dance moves.

There are others that were effective yet still functional – even on public transit!

I did it. For Halloween this year I went as sexy #Gritty. pic.twitter.com/LomqSZmdgz— 👻 Voter Apathy 👻 (@AngeeGabs) October 28, 2018
This Halloween also saw its fair share of pups dressed us Gritty for the holiday. Can't get enough of dogs dressed in miniature clothes? Check out our gallery of the SPCA's Halloween costume parade.
My wife made a Halloween costume for my dog Stanley, and I’ve never been more proud of a person or an animal than I am right now. #Philly #Flyers #Gritty pic.twitter.com/XxiWgts9wL— Chip Chantry (@ChipChantry) October 24, 2018

Then, somehow more terrifying than any heretofore Gritty iteration, came the Gritty jack-o-lanterns.

Sigh. Remember when we thought Jason Kelce was going to be the biggest Halloween costume coming out of Philadelphia this year?
