NOTE: Because this post is from 2010, the exact links may not work, but most of these Halloween Costumes - and many more are still available here.
Looking for a good adult ready-to-wear costume for this year's All Hallow's Eve? If you're opting for one that plays off popular culture, I've got some great ones for you.
There are a bunch of affordable (and some not so affordable) new costumes that have come out this year for the spooky Halloween holiday. Pop culture comes alive in the form of Lady Gaga, Jersey Shore's Snooki, Pauly D and The Situation, The Dude and Bowling Jesus from The Big Lebowski, Star Trek and of course, Star Wars.
There's no longer an excuse to be one of those people who cobbles together a lame version of a kitty cat or a pirate when costumes like these are available. But, the best costumes sell out quickly, so don't wait too long.

For both fans and wannabes, these Lady Gaga costumes rock -or should I say 'pop'? -and they are surprisingly affordable, too!
