Amazingly, this solo jellyfish was not connected to the pair of jellyfish that were already inside and won concert tickets -- the Casbah, Belly Up and House of Blues generously donated the tix -- for Best Group Costume.

Sure, the pinata knew he had his hand on her shoulder, but was she aware of the photo-bombing? Kind of looks like Jim Carrey in a sailor hat.

What's scarier: That this guy is dressed up as the BTK killer eight years after he went to jail or that we think he's dressed up as the BTK killer?
