When 150,000 to 200,000 people show up for a huge Halloween party, you're going to get some of the best of the best when it comes to costumes. As always, that's West Hollywood's annual Halloween Carnival.

It was a mix of politics -- especially tea baggers (we didn't see any Christine O'Donnell witches, did you?) -- Chilean miners, sexy superheroes and Childrens' book/movie characters, cute crayons and a plethora of other pop culture references.

There was also a heavy dose of the Rocky Horror PIcture Show as it was the 35th Anniversary. At 10:45 p.m. across the event's six stages, "Time Warp" was played in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record of people dancing to the song, which was apparently successful (we, however, have yet to see a confirmation from Guinness).

All in all, it was good times for all, and with only minor incidents reported by the end of the event.
