They say Halloween brings out the crazies, but it seems to be the time of year when geeks get their creative juices flowing as well. We’ve all seen Princess Leia and Superman costumes come out year after year, but it’s the original ones that make us take notice. Here’s some of the most impressively geeky Halloween costumes this October:

Most Authentic – Lego Vampire

Most Original – Angry Birds

Most Effort – Pacman and Ghosts
