The DJ kept the house hoppin', we saw some epic costumes, from a storm trooper to Legends of the Hidden Temple to the Lady Gaga dancers,

Which costumes rocked the hardest?

Lego Farmer - Best Single

Jellyfish - Best Couple

Hugh Hefner and his 'business women' - Best Group

Once again, we say thanks to everyone that showed up and kept the social scene alive.
