Halloween Weekend: The Scary, The Bad, The Dumb, The Skanky, the Half-Assed, The Ugly, The Creative

Three signs of a scary ass costume: blood that actually looks like blood, crazy "I'm possessed" contacts, creepy hunch/scream/is that fake blood in your mouth?

This weekend was a mess of fashion dos and don'ts and costume boos and bravos. There was certainly enough going on, so for this edition of Good, Bad and Ugly, we're tossing in what we saw at a few different events: The Jersey Shore-themed Ultimate GTL Party at Axis Radius, The Downtown Zombie Walk, and the Masquerave Ball at Club Stratus.

The Scary's above (along with links to the full slideshows) -- buckle up for The Bad, The Dumb, The Skanky, the Half-Assed, The Ugly, and The Creative after the jump ...

Four signs of a bad costume: Unwarranted lack of shirt, weird gloves, stupid hand gestures, and are those NUDE-colored briefs? Ew.

Two signs of a skanky costume: Are the Acura logo and bandanna your attempts at costumes (and only pieces of clothing)? And why is the person in the background with the most clothing on the only one making an effort to cover herself?

Pretty sure the bed sheet ghost IS the definitive half-ass costume. Congrats.

Three signs of an ugly costume: The overall affect of dazed and confused, the overuse of baby beanies and pacifiers, and let's decide: Do you want to fight, or throw the peace sign?

One sign of a creative costume: Hey it's Waldo! I never would have thought of that! But enough with the zombies already.
