13 Favorite Costumes from Halloween Weekend in Metro Phoenix
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.

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.
Please refrain from popping the bubbles.
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.
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.
