TV's Halloween Costume Contest: Who Won?

Getting the right costume together for Halloween can make or break the holiday, and the same goes for Halloween-themed TV episodes. With several shows doing Halloween-themed episodes last week, we decided to take a look back at who wore what and hold our own costume contest. Here's a sample of some of our favorites. Who do you think had the best costume?

Community

... Britta (Gillian Jacobs) as an adorable T-Rex.
... Senor Chang (Ken Jeong) as Peggy Fleming (not Michelle Kwan or Kristi Yamaguchi, you racist!).

I can't believe they left out Cougar Town's Grayson as Prince. Not a prince, mind you, but THE Prince. Dearly Beloved...

The Modern Family ensemble was great, but I have to go with a split vote for Laurie and Ellie on Cougar Town for dressing as each other.

Modern Family. Not only great costumes but an act to go along with them! Community was good too. Third choice The Office.

The Community costumes were fantastic. Dee as an ostrich and The Office. Honorable mention to The League. Taco knew the monkey would do something horrible.

Kurt Hummel (Chris Colfer) as Rocky Horror's Riff Raff was my favorite Halloween
costume and Kurt wore it well. He wore so well I did not even know it was him at all. Pretty good Kurt!

The cast of Modern Family wins hands down in my opinion, though costumes of the Glee cast weren't half bad. Chris Colfer was seriously awesome.

As long as it's not Tony's Travolta look from NCIS. Scary! Why they would want to make such a hot man look that horrid is beyond me. (please don't do that again NCIS!). Loved all the costumes on The Office though.

Abed and Troy from Community obviously had the best duo costume.

Are you serious?? You included the cast of Cougar Town, but didn't include Bobby Cobb as Windy Guy?? That was the best one!!
Reply

Pam as Olive, how could you miss that? But really, nothing beats Jim as a three hole punch Jim. The Office's Halloween episode's opening with Stanley's inattentiveness was glorious.

Renee Perry, Kurt Hummel, Phil Dunphy (sound effects included) But the most unrecognizable was Luke Dunphy.

Overall, The Office had the best costumes, and apart from it, individually, Dee, Claire Dunphy, Gupta and Senor Chang.

Where is you assessment of "The League"? "Jenny" (Katie Aselton) as the giant frog to make her daughter happy and simply because of the awful things "Taco"'s monkey did to said costume.

Senor Chang, without a doubt.

Bobby from Cougar Town :D

Senor Chang is the best. Teri Hatcher as a Rag Doll looks strange.

Dee as the ostrich in It's Always Sunny. The toilet scene. Hands down. Senor Chang was funny and Britta was cute in Community. And the idea of dressing up as each other in Cougar Town was clever. But they still didn't come even close to Dee as an ostrich. She was even better than Danny DeVito as th dog in Look Who's Talking Now.

Shirley as Glinda/Miss Piggy on Community.

How could you miss Troy and Abed as matching exoskeleton and alien from the Aliens movie? (And then Troy as a sexy Dracula -- not a specific Dracula like Vampire, just a sexy Dracula. With a toilet seat cover.)

The entire cast of Modern Family, with special recognition to Senor Chang as Peggy Fleming.

Treehouse of Horror XXI hasn't aired yet, so Halloween isn't over yet.

... Luke Dunphy (Nolan Gould) as Frankenstein.
