Carlos Cardona earned top marks in the Scariest Category for his spooky ensemble. Dressing as ‘Deviled Eggs’ earned Isabel Hernandez a first-place prize in the Most Creative Category. Josh Pound, Matt Valdes, Mary Ann Velez, Alex Carrillo’s take on Tampa Bay Buccaneers players and cheerleaders was a touchdown in the Group Category.
