On Halloween most folks are focused on being sexy or scary (or both), but it's the witty, I-wish-I-had-thought-of-that get-ups that win every time.

Pop culture remains folks' biggest inspiration, as demonstrated by KCRW's Masquerade Ball at the Park Plaza this year. (Here's our review of the event.) Here are the best and worst costumes there we snapped.

Operation (the game)

This re-creation of the classic board game is accurate right down to the, ahem, bread basket placement. His girlfriend is the tweezers, insuring no other gal would be picking at his parts.

The Happy Foot/Sad Foot sign in Echo Park

These two put their best -and worst- feet forward!

Beetlejuice and Winona Bride

This scene at the end of Beetlejuice when B attempts to make lil Lydia the goth his teen bride. Her red frock was stunning, and seeing them together dancing around was hard for other couples to, um, beet.

Miley & Robin

We gotta give these two credit. If you're gonna emulate the most obvious, over-exposed pop culture moment of the year in your costume, you gotta do it right, and they did, down to the twerk poses and foam finger.

Insurance Ad Characters

Flo from Progressive Insurance, Jake from State Farm, and the All-State Mayhem guy... no accident these three are together.

Carries

The Carrie remake's hype is tainting our visions of Sissy Spacek's awesomeness, and these guys aren't helping!

Love Boaters

We actually dug Isaac The Bartender and Julie the Cruise Director from the Love Boat. It's just that most of the twentysomethings at the party had no idea who they were. They only got love from older folk like us.

Clue

When you've made elaborate group costumes, you gotta stick together with your crew all night, which these gals didn't. It left many confused and clueless.
