Halloween is almost upon us, but you haven't had time to make a costume. What does the prefab costume industry have for you this year? Lots of superheroes, Predators, skanky robots... and Lady Gaga. Prepare to bleach your eyes.

We looked through the new men's and women's costumes over at Spirit Halloween, one of the main Halloween retailers. We noticed a few trends: First of all, there were plenty of costumes from recent movies, including Kick-Ass, Avatar, Iron Man 2 and Jonah Hex (?!). Second of all, there were lots of new superhero costumes, including ones for superheroes who hadn't had a new movie recently. And then there were Lady Gaga costumes — a new article in USA Today says Lady Gaga is the new hotness in Halloween costumes.

We also noticed there's a definite difference between the high-end costumes (mostly sold for rental purposes) and the cheap-ass equivalents. Check out the new line of Iron Man costumes, and you'll see what we mean.

Disclaimer: There were some items listed as new for 2010 that we weren't sure were actually new. Like, why roll out a Power Rangers costume in 2010? We included some of that stuff, but mostly we're including stuff we're reasonably sure is new.

The, uh.... slightly more low-end Iron Man 2 costume, which costs just $19. If you're drunk enough, it'll look cool, we promise. It's what Tony Stark would probably wear, if he was broke.

Kick-Ass costume. This is one of the few superheroes where a crappy store-bought costume might actually work.

Supreme Edition Boba Fett costume. They claim this is new for 2010, but who can tell? It'll set you back a full $999.99 though. It's actually not bad.

Sexy Optimus Prime. They claim this is new for 2010, but we mostly just wanted to feature it because it's so insanely hilarious. Anybody who wears this is just asking for disrespectful questions about whether she can turn into an 18-wheeler.

Sexy Bumblebee costume. Again, supposedly new for 2010.

Green Lantern costume, possibly timed to coincide with interest in the film. Check out the massive boots and fake abs. (Probably the same fake abs being used in the new "The Situation" costume, just painted green.) Those eyes tear into me — they look haunted by the terrible things he's seen.

Predators super-Predator costume. Costs $99.99 and doesn't look all that bad, at least in the photo.

Sexy V For Vendetta costume. Supposedly new for 2010, although we have no idea why. Mostly it's just an exercise in amazing WTFery. Who would watch or read V For Vendetta and then think, "All of that rape and torture makes me want to put on a sexy peekaboo outfit"?

A female Wolverine, because... Also, haven't these people heard of X-23?

Female Jason Voorhees, presumably to cash in on the huge, mind-blowing Friday The 13th remake fever.

I'm not complaining her, really I'm not. I just want to know when exactly Halloween became an excuse for women to dress like tramps while saying they were dressed in an actual costume?
