Some came out dressed to impress, others were interested in being either scary or sexy. But no matter what sort of costumes partiers wore while strolling through local bars and clubs after dark in honor of Halloween this past weekend, almost everyone was adorned in something interesting. Although the majority wore store-bought getups, there was a multitude of costuming that was of the homemade sort, whether it was a dude clad in a cardboard box with "medical marijuana" scrawled on it or the astounding-looking robots, superheroes, or horror film monsters.

We were out and about ourselves and not only grabbed hundreds of photos of the nonstop costume parade, but also compiled a list of some of our favorites that we encountered between all the Walter Whites and Miley Cyrus wanna-bes.

By the way, if you haven't had a chance to show off your threads just yet, there are still a surfeit of Halloween celebration this week up until Thursday, October 31, and beyond. (Hit up our annual party guide for more info.)

In the meantime, here are the costumes that caught our eye over the weekend at events like the Haunted Hotel Ball at the Valley Ho in Scottsdale or the Monster Masquerade in Tempe.

Soon these two will leave this lame planet and fly through outer space to find cool aliens that like them, but not before taking time for our cameras while partying at the Monster Masquerade at Fat Tuesday in Tempe. Plus, any reference to Dude, Where's My Car? is aces in our book. Zoltan!

Don't like this costume? Good.

Grumpy Cat
Even though Grumpy Cat is a bit long in the tooth as far as Internet celebrities go, we're still very much smitten with the cranky kitty and Valley resident. So much so that we dug this anthropomorphized version of Tardar Sauce that attended the Ghostball outside of Maya in Scottsdale.

At this party, I saw a guy who was a bag of weed. And he gave out free joints. Top that one!

I'm so sick of every Halloween costume for women being a "sexy ___", can women dress up in anything that isn't "sexy" for Halloween anymore?

Calling a woman a "slut" based upon her appearance is just irresistible, guys. Good luck out there.
