Halloween 2013, basically a month-long event, is finally over. And what a finale it had! Heidi Klum dressed up as "old," Eva Chen got a fake tattoo and amazingly realistic mohawk, and Rihanna wore ... something. Some folks took the obvious route (Perez Hilton went as ... actually, we won't even tell you), while others were straight-up unrecognizable (Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock went as matching bearded fishermen). Enjoy the best, worst, and most wonderful costumes of 2013 in our Halloween slideshow.
Most Awkward Mother-Daughter Effort: Bethenny Frankel
Nothing tops off a good costume like the inclusion of a small child, who may be wondering why her mom has one blue foil-covered boob.
Best Dynasty Costume of All Time: Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman
It's a pity that Harvey Weinstein didn't get in on this. He'd have made a great Blake Carrington.
Best One-Up of Themselves: Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman
For round two, they were Hitchcock characters. These witty costumes are the reason Halloween is great.
Most Likely to Be Wearing Clothes From Their Own Closets: Amanda Hearst and Genevieve Bahrenburg
Just throw on some devil horns and call it a night.
Best Tube Socks: Pete Brant, Jr.
Always let the guy with the sword get the better picture angle.
Best Dorothy: Marchesa's Dog
Toto gets a role reversal.
Most Carefully Orchestrated "Peek": Beyonce and Blue Ivy Carter
Blue appears to be a bumblebee. Or maybe ... a bumble-Bey?
Best Non-Halloween Costume: Lady Gaga
If I were her, I wouldn't even know what day it is either.
Second-best Wizard of Oz Characters: Gisele and Tom Brady
No match for Marchesa's dog, but is that Toto Gisele's actual Yorkie? If so, +1,000.
Bloodiest: Lindsay Lohan
She dressed up as Carrie for a Halloween party at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut, for which we sincerely hope she was well-compensated.
Most Eager to Milk Halloween for All They Possibly Can: Snooki and JWoww
Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. This costume is proof: Propeller hats always make everything better.
Most Unexpectedly Pretty: Snooki
That white hair looks strangely good on her.
Most Unexpectedly Covered-Up: JWoww
Sometimes, a girl just wants to have on enough clothes to wear a normal bra.
Hands-Down Best Couple Costume: Cindy Crawford and Randy Gerber
Extra points to Cindy for the "sleeve" tattoo.
Biggest Cop Out: Ryan Seacrest
Okay, so you wanted to wear a nice suit, we get it. But at least bring a broken chandelier, or a cape, or something.
Most Expected: Perez Hilton
He's been planning this for exactly two months and six days. (And spray-tan countouring accordingly.)
Most Disappointing Shirt: David Kirsch
By which we mean, he's actually wearing one! Unfair. Showing abs is a prerequisite for all celebrity trainers at costume parties.
Mostly Likely to Keep Outfits Like This Lying Around the House for a Rainy Afternoon: Coco and Ice-T
Ice was like, "Oh, you're wearing that old thing again? Fine."
Classiest Act: Katie Couric, Billy Crystal, and Bette Midler
Points to Katie for her "tart"-y wig.
Most in Need of Abu: Shanina Shayk
Lost opportunity: carrying a clutch instead of a lamp. Come ON.
Hottest Couple: The Blonds
Just another average night for these two.
Biggest ... Ears: Dean and Dan Caten
Sometimes, over-compensating is a good thing.
Most in Need of Stephen Sprouse Graffiti: Jessica White
It would have been a great touch, no?
Best Use of American Apparel Leggings: Lindsay Ellingson
Although Sandy's hair should be decidedly poufier. We'll blame the rain.
Cutest Fairy: Christian Siriano
We do believe, we do!
Best Accessories: Michael Kors and Lance LePere
These parasols >>> Gaga's "parasol."
Least Recognizable: Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock
Most Mysterious: Rihanna
What is she? Here are her Instagrams. You be the judge.
Best Faux-hawk: Eva Chen
Our girl crush grows stronger by the day.
Biggest Shocker: Heidi Klum
Brilliantly subversive, whether she means it to be or not.
Laziest: Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose
You know they're both capable of so much more.
