It's that time a year when people put their creative mind to use and figure out what they're going to wear as they dance like drunken buffoons or take their kids trick-or-treating. While some people just try to wear as little clothing as possible, some who partake in Halloween festivities are also big movie fans and they show their love with impressive homemade costumes. Therefore, with Hurricane Sandy keeping NYC busy and the news flow being slow besides yesterday's Star Wars explosion, we decided to highlight our favorite movie-themed Halloween costumes that we've seen pop up around the web. These aren't meant to be definitive choices of the best costumes of the year (we haven't seen them all), but they're our favorites. Look below!
Here's our 10 favorite movie-themed Halloween 2012 costumes (from Imgur unless indicated otherwise):
The Wet Bandits (Daniel Stern and Joe Pesci) from Home Alone:
Seth (Jonah Hill) from Superbad:
Syndrome (voiced by Jason Lee) from Pixar's The Incredibles:
Roger Thornhill (Cary Grant) from North by Northwest (from MSN):
Mugatu (Will Ferrrell) from Zoolander:
Mary, Winifred and Sarah Sanderson from Hocus Pocus:
Marty McFly from Back to the Future (more at Movies.com) :
Buzz Lightyear as Mrs. Nesbitt from Toy Story:
Ripley and Load Lifter from Aliens (video at Geekologie):
The Leg Lamp from A Christmas Story:
There's plenty of other great costumes out there still showing up today, but these are the ones that really made us chuckle. There's definitely a lot of muscular dudes trying to be Bane out there, but we could have had a whole article of just them and it would have never ended. Obviously, we can't see all of the great Halloween costumes out there, so if you think there's any that deserve recognition (especially if they're your own creation), feel free to post them in the comments below so everyone can take a gander! Good stuff?

The North by Northwest costume is my favorite by far, and I say that as a huge Alien and Back to the Future fan. That's how impressed I was by it.

The Buzz Lightyear costume isn't new. It's about 3 years old and is from a cosplay convention.
