Halloween 2012 has come and gone, with the music world leaving its mark on the annual excuse for cheating on diets and overdoing it on makeup as only it can. Pop culture icons, drug paraphernalia and controversy reigned supreme, with surprisingly very little influence from Psy to be seen. What, nobody likes our Halloween masks?

As always, there were adult kitty cats and more than one Batman heading out into the night—yes, you really are the only person left who hasn’t seen The Dark Knight Rises. Should Chord Overstreet go all the way and film commercial to complete his Brad Pitt spoof? Did Lady Gaga’s sticky greenery trump Wiz Khalifa, the human blunt? Is there any way to justify Chris Brown’s Taliban garb? Check out all this and more below, and vote for your favorite celebrity costume in our poll.
