There was once again plenty of variety in this year’s Advocate staff Halloween costume contest.

The judging panel for this year’s contest consisted of publisher Fred Gorman, managing editor John Stewart and circulation manager Louis Myers.

The judges had some tough choices to make, as both the costumes and impromptu performances were arguably the best the Advocate has ever seen.

First place went to Marilyn Monroe and her handsome young escort.

Second place was awarded to the the wife of Dog The Bounty Hunter.

Third place went to the Ninja Turtles.

The judges also gave honourable mention to a staffer who came dressed as fully set dinner table.

Other highlights included Snow White and the seven dwarfs, the biggest sports-fan loser and a very animated bumble bee.

Enjoy these photos from the 2009 Advocate Halloween costume contest.

Congratulations to this year’s winners!
