The Top 6 Costumes at the Montrose Crawl
The third annual Montrose Crawl took over Westheimer on Saturday night as crowds of Halloween revelers lurched from bar to restaurant to bar. With the attendees encouraged to come in costume, it was as if Arne's and Party City had simultaneously exploded onto the streets of Montrose. Needless to say, it was difficult to pick our favorite costumes of the night, but here are our top six.

Number Six goes to this lovely lady, er...handsome man, er...extraordinary person who dressed as our favorite SNL character from the 90s: It's Pat!
Number Five is another exquisite bit of 90s nostalgia (the 90s truly are back, kids -- I know, we can't believe it either):Forrest Gump
Number Four is high on our list both for accuracy and for having the balls to wear a costume that almost ensures you won't get laid later on in the night:Oompah Loompah
Number Three is a welcome bit of 80s nostalgia for a change, and was our second favorite couples' costume of the night: Ms. Pacman and Ghost.
Number Two reveals our nerdy side. Although he's trying to blend inobtrusively into the crowd -- as the real character would do -- there's no mistaking our favorite comic book anti-hero of all time: Rorschach.
And a hearty congratulations to our Number One pick of the night:The David and the Venus de Milo
. A wholly creative couples' costume that's both cultured and clever -- as well as very daring. This is what you should be aiming for next year folks.
