    The 9th annual Monster Bash in the Gaslamp

    It’s adult trick-or-treating with $3,000 up for grabs.

    Hundreds of very dressed up and hardly dressed people descended on the Gaslamp Quarter for the 9th annual Monster Bash.

    A Dirt Bike Tire and Two Days

    Talk about effort. It took two days for this guy to make his outfit.

    There was plenty of entertainment with DJs Marc Thrasher and G-Roy mixing up some haunted house music. Electric Valentine and a No Doubt cover band also provided live entertainment.  The culmination of the evening’s events was a midnight costume contest with $3,000 up for grabs.

    One guy put a lot of time into his costume to dress up as Odd Ball from Smoking Aces, “It took two days of construction.  I had to cut this dirt bike tire and I did not know there is actually metal inside these things,” he said.

    The VIP Experience

    What the VIP experience at Monster Bash is all about.

    There was also a unique twist on the traditional Waldo outfit. The costume was of a small Waldo getting a piggy back ride from an old man and it evolved out of necessity, “The costume ran a little too small, so I had to come up with something last minute and decided to make this,” he said.

    For those who wanted to go all out, the V.I.P tickets allowed for a separate “bloody” red carpet admission, complimentary cocktails, cover and shots at a dozen different bars in the Gaslamp.
