There’s nothing like a TV character in costume to remind you that you still do not have a Halloween costume. (Wonder how many Facebooks we’ll see tomorrow night?) I’ll run down my list of the best, worst, and weirdest costumes of the week — including Mal, “Bookface,” and “Italian Senator” — after the jump…
Barbara Walters on this morning’s View
CLOSEST TO REALITY
Cirie (Katrina Bowden) as an “Italian Senator,” on 30 Rock. Give it up for Gay Halloween!
