Photos: San Diego Halloween Costumes Keep Coming

Wednesday is the last day of our series featuring San Diegans in Halloween costumes. We've posted some great costumes over the last couple of days, including one with costumed pets and an "extra cute edition."

Tomorrow, we'll have a special These Days show about Halloween costumes and decorating ideas, so if the last round of posts haven't sparked your creativity, tune in to 89.5FM at 10am to hear Maureen talk with KPBS film critic Beth Accomando, KPBS producer Andy Trimlett, and Reader columnist Barbarella Fokos. They all have some spooky and cost-effective ideas for your Halloween.

Jeff Hammett and his wife Kinsee Morlan (arts editor at San Diego CityBeat) in the most literary Halloween costume we've received here at Culture Lust. They dressed up as the cover of "Trout Fishing in America," by Richard Brautigan. Their picture even made the New Yorker's book blog in 2008.

KPBS programmer Jim Tinsky as world famous luchador “El Moobs.”

Renee Owens, who had such great costumes as a kid, as Roadkill Barbie.

Kim and James Keeline as zombies at the annual Halloween "Haunted Train Ride" at the Poway-Midland Railroad. Kim told me she will be there again this year as a zombie conductor: "I don't eat brains, but I look for Trraaaainnnns."

Ellary Branden sent in this photo of herself and Michael Stephenson from 1978.

Pete Evaristo as "The Nurse to the Infamous Dr. Muth, D.D.S. (Dentist for Deranged Souls)."

Paul Gallaher dressed as Falcon Heene, AKA "Balloon Boy" and his wife Danielle dressed as a vampire.

KPBS reporter Joanne Faryon as a "nerd boy," complete with skullcap.

Sabina Koehring in her zombie costume.

Aaryn Belfer (columnist for SD CityBeat) as Elle Driver from the Quentin Tarantino film "Kill Bill."
