The annual West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval took over the streets of WeHo on Halloween Saturday night, and drew an estimated half-million attendees, according to the L.A. Times. With numbers like that, there were bound to be some incredible costumes, and LAist was there to capture the action.

The annual celebration—a massive street party/ parade—honored the 40th anniversary of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and included a performance by Boy George. And while there were some great costumes from the cult classic itself, we saw a lot of other fantastic get-ups that caught our eye. The most impressive group costume, by far was the "Kard-Asians," which spoofed the Internet-breaking Kim Kardashian Paper Magazine shoot from earlier this year.
