At the beginning of the month, we asked for photos of your best Halloween costumes — the geeky ones, the nerdy ones, the ones of which you're particularly proud. After sifting through all the e-mails, we're proud to present our readers' best Halloween costumes. Enjoy!

(40 photos is a lot for one post, so we've paginated it as a courtesy to those of you with slower internet connections.)

Sheila S. (second from left) and friends, who know that a "group costume is infinitely more fun," spent one Halloween as Odlaw, Wizard Whitebeard, Wenda, Woof, and—of course—Waldo (Wally). "Costumes were complete with accessories (scroll, binoculars, cane, etc.), and Woof even had a personalized dog tag reading 'If found please return to Waldo'."

Amanda M. and her boyfriend dressed up as Jamie and Adam from MythBusters.

For her Luna Lovegood costume, Kerri made the necklace, earrings, scarf, wand, glasses, and robe.

Molly made her entire Zelda costume from scratch, including the hand-painted tapestry hanging on the front.

Our last Mario-inspired costume: Reader Augustus F. and his grandson teamed up as (big) Mario and (little) Luigi for Halloween this year.

The very first photo we received was from Cassidy N., who built a mock-up of the Iron Man arc reactor and then "gave [him]self the hostage treatment from the beginning of the first Iron Man movie."
