Every Halloween, Global Edmonton weather specialist Mike Sobel and traffic reporter Daintre Christensen surprise viewers – and staff – with unique costumes.

Christensen says they start brainstorming ideas around the first week of October, and come up with two or three options before making the final selection.

Christensen says her favourite costumes were 2013’s Sonny and Cher. “It was a fairly simple costume and we had a laugh recreating some of their shtick. I had to stand on a platform to look much taller than Mike!”

Sobel’s favourite was 2011’s Invisible Man — so much so, he wore it again in 2017.

His craziest costume memory goes back to before Christensen joined the crew, when the morning news was on from 6 to 8 a.m. “I would wear a different costume for each half hour. That gave me very little time to change in between segments so it was run, run, run.”

So, which of Sobel’s and Christensen’s wacky Halloween outfits was your favourite? Scroll to the bottom to vote in our poll.
