The Best Costumes of Hong Kong Sevens 2017

Oh Hong Kong, you did it again! Sevens fans never fail to reach new heights of awesomeness in the costume department, and this year certainly didn’t disappoint.

From butterflies to punks, and Pikachus to naked Sims (and thankfully no Trump clones), we really had it all in the stadium.

So here’s to everyone who tagged #localiiz and to those who posed oh-so-gracefully for our Localiiz lens.

Now go ahead and tag yourselves!

And although Trump wasn't to be seen, his "huge" wall was pretty hard to miss!
