Who Won TV's 2013 Halloween Costume Contest? (PHOTOS)

Hopefully the Halloween Hangover you had from eating sacks full of candy is abated by now, thanks to a breakfast of scrambled insulin. However, your recollection of the entire week may be blurry after snorting all those Pixy Stix—what was that, like, three kilos? Anyway, if you're still feeling a little fuzzy, don't worry: We got you covered! On the television front, at least. We don't have photos of that person in the sexy Tim Allen costume you hooked up with, but we do have photos of our favorite Halloween costumes from the television's celebration of All Hallow's Eve, and we need you to help us pick out a winner. 

Below you'll find a gallery of your favorite television characters (plus a few actors and talk show hosts) in costume, so click, click, click until your thumbs bleed. You'll also find some made-up honors that we've bestowed upon our favorite and not-so-favorite outfits. Want to award recognition to a particular costume? Make a shout-out in the comments. And remember, you only have 364 days left to plan next year's costume and party! Don't forget to leave Julianne Hough off your guest list!


Most "TV Stars, They're Just Like So Much More Adorable Than Us!": Neil Patrick Harris and his adorable family


And people wonder why we want NPH to adopt us.


Most Committed to the Cause: LIVE's Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan


These two donned like a million costumes, paying homage to Michonne from The Walking Dead, England's royal baby, Sons of AnarchyBreaking BadDuck Dynasty, and many more (see additional photos in the gallery above)! Major A for effort. 


Most Obnoxious Network-induced Out-of-Context-ness: Parks and Recreation


Can't wait to see this episode on November 14, NBC!


Cutest Example of "Erroneous Wordplay": Trophy Wife's Bert as "The Ironing Man"


Way to stand your ground and hold out for the real Iron Man outfit, Bert. 


Most Likely to Wear a Costume Totally Independently of Whether It's Actually Halloween: The Vampire Diaries


For someone who never, ever goes to class, Elena sure knew a lot about Anne Boleyn. Somewhere on the Other Side, Alaric is raising a glass of bourbon and patting himself on the back.


Most Disturbing Use of Fake Boobs: Ellen DeGeneres as Nicki Minaj and Matt Lauer as Pamela Anderson During Her Baywatch Years (TIE)


Seriously, these are even more unsettling than those hospital gown costumes with the molded plastic butts. 


Best Group Costume: The Neighbors' family sandwich


We could totally go for a BLT right now. 


Best terrible impression of a late-night host: New Girl's Winston as David Letterman


We'd watch Winston's talk show in a heartbeat. 


Best Practical Use for a Costume: Beverly Goldberg's Sheet ghost


While most television characters put on costumes just to be part of Halloween festivities, The Goldbergs' meddling matriarch draped a sheet over herself and attended a high-school party as a ghost in order to spy on her son Barry. It was the perfect (literal) cover… until she blew it, of course.


Best Combination Pizza: Kristen Schaal's Celebration of Slut-o-ween on The Daily Show


Female empowerment with extra cheese. See the full segment here.


Most Ouroborus: The Honey Boo Boo gang as the Kardashians 


Naturally, the episode will air in January. 


Show We Wish Was Still Around to Do Halloween Episodes: Happy Endings


We miss these guys so much. Stupid Latoya.


Which show/character/TV star do you think won Halloween this year?

John Ross Bowie dressed as a nun in Brooklyn Nine-Nine was pretty cool.

Great comedies like Happy Endings are long cancelled and shows like Dads are currently picked up for an entire season! Logic!

Some of these are very scarring to the eye.

Can't deny it, Winston does look like Letterman.

Since I didn't hear exactly who she was when I watched, I thought Ellen was a blonde Elvira, haha.

Brick Heck's bookmark costume on 'The Middle' was great (and consistent with his family being poor). And Barry Goldberg channeling 'The Hulk' on 'The Goldbergs' was fun, too.

I think Community will be way more out of context than Parks and Recreation though.

Heidi Klum should have made it to this list.

Awesome! Adam Scott and Amy Poehler as Princess Bride! I hope they have someone dressed up as Inigo Montoya

Any mention of the name Alaric automatically gets a thumps up.

ugh... Why did you have to bring up Hapy Endings? Still getting over it.
Anyways, can't to see Parks and Rec's Halloween episode and it sucks that we probably won't get a Community one.

I'll say "Happy Endings" win because as far I'm concerned they win everything. Gone but not forgotten.

Sexy Vagina all the way. A really funny, and scarily accurate segment on the trend of Halloween costumes these days.

I'm not sure if was supposed to be a Halloween episode but the gang in "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" had some pretty awesome costumes in 'The Gang Makes Lethal Weapon 6'.
