The face that launched a thousand Facebook comments ... Halloween -- everyone's favorite excuse to get buckwild and fly their freak flag high -- is nigh. Last year, Shaun White channeled his Disney doppelganger, posing as Ariel from "The Little Mermaid," and he's definitely not alone in his mission to masquerade. Take a cue for this weekend's getup from these throwbacks of your favorite pros in disguise. "This Is My Costume" T-shirts don't cut it, kid.

Keri Herman, pro skier
"[Pro skier] Kim Lamarre is a zombie bride, and I'm Nicki Minaj. I like Halloween, but it's not my fave. I like to dress up on the reg, but Halloween freaks me out cuz I can't tell who anyone is and I get really creeped out. I wish people had to wear nametags. "My fave Halloween costume is when I dressed up as a pillow fight. I wore long undies, sprayed glue all over myself, rolled in feathers and rocked people with a tattered pillow spewing feathers all night long."
Hana Beaman, pro snowboarder
Left: "Hana-bar-bara -- I was a barbarian. It was amazing. 'nuff said." Right: "I just saw this and thought I had to use it somehow! So I glued a bunch of checkers over it and added the accessories. Gary [Milton] was [Dr. Frank N. Furter from] "Rocky Horror Picture Show"; I styled him. Other memorable Beaman costumes include Hurricane Hana, The Creamsicle and Space Babe/Barbarella.
Tom Dugan, BMX pro

Lyn-z and Travis Pastrana
Lyn-z Adams Hawkins Pastrana told X Games the inspiration for this Halloween costume came about because husband Travis looks like Luigi when he grows a mustache. The two donned the outfits of the Nintendo Super Mario Bros. protagonists in Las Vegas in 2012. "We went to old downtown and ended up at Insert Coin(s) Arcade playing old-school Mario Bros. video games," reports Mario, aka Lyn-z.
