Halloween 2013: The Ten Best Costumes on Lincoln Road
Of all the places to be on Halloween in Miami, South Beach's Lincoln Road has historically been both the most crowded and the most flamboyant. And this year was no exception. Revelers crowded the walking mall in costumes ranging from pop culture inspirations to freak show fashion.
Here are our top costume picks from last night's festivities.
10. Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala
Anyone can dress up as Kim Kardashian. But it takes extra skill to add a pregnant belly, a pair of attached glove-sleeves, and the balls to caress the rock-hard abs of the nearest half-naked superhero.
9. Lego Line
Was this the most unusual costume on the block? No. But these partiers get bonus points for consistency, and for bringing a crowd.
8. Alien Bride of Franken-Skeleton
I have no idea what you're going for there, sir. But I'm pretty sure you nailed it. Even Drag Dorothy back there knows what's up.
7. Lady in Red
Ditto you, you fabulous red diva you.
6. Despicable Me
Because minions have been done to death. Bonus points for committing to the bald head, too.
5. Bad Pandas
That's what this is, right? Naughty conjoined panda twins? Whatever, these girls are super cute.
Quick, someone give me a toddler so I can steal this idea next year.
3. Sparkly Egyptian Gods
All hail Anubis, God of the Dead/man most likely to put an eye out on the mall last night.
2. Made of Money
All they're missing is a motorcycle and an Allman Brothers soundtrack.
1. Wrecking Ball
Great Miley spoof, or greatest Miley spoof? You know where we stand.
