This Year's Halloween Costumes?

So I don't know about you guys, but I'm super excited for Halloween :]

It's a great holiday for me, as it involves 2 of my favorite things: playing dress up, and candy. However, I seem to be the only one here at Lions After Dark who is prepared for the festivities, as Gaby and David do not even have a costume picked out yet. My friends and I will be going to Thrillvania as a group of Mario characters (I'll be Peach).

Maybe Gaby & David will get some ideas on the show tonight when we look at this year's most popular costumes.
