Halloween Costumes Hall of Fame

Tri Truong was a cat for Halloween until about the age of 6. From cute cat to singing Turtle, Tri reminisces on his early costume days saying, “I remember my mom knitting me a ton of these kitty cat hats to wear on Halloween with a onesie. They’re totally in vogue now. I wish she would knit me more, but she refuses to knit nowadays. Sad face.”

The No. 1 Halloween Hall of Fame shout out goes to none other than Brian Scott Carey, with his version of King Poseidon and his sea horse mistress. The costumes took over two weeks (and not to mention some serious creativity and dedication) to create, but it paid off. Brian and his boyfriend won the 2013 S4 Halloween costume contest.
