14. Magician

Who Wore It: GilesEpisode: "All the Way" (Season 6, Episode 6)By the time Season 6 rolled around, Giles was as checked out of Halloween as he was with Sunnydale in general. He would take off for London in a few episodes and Buffy really should've seen the signs when all he did was throw on a Fantasia tablecloth and call it a costume.

13. "Hooker"

Who Wore It: WillowEpisode: "Halloween" (Season 2, Episode 6)Buffy's heart was in the right place when she tried to get Willow to "come as you aren't" and dress sexy for Halloween. But what was the concept, Buffy? Garbage cover band? Law & Order: SVU extra?

11. James Bond

Who Wore It: XanderEpisode: "Fear, Itself" (Season 4, Episode 4)In case the gang got turned into their costumes like they did in Season 2, Xander tried dressing up as James Bond. Buffy pointed out that he'd probably turn into "cool head waiter guy." Poor Xander.

9. Pirate

Who Wore It: XanderEpisode: "All the Way" (Season 6, Episode 6)Xander's costume is probably the first Pirate costume he saw hanging on the rack at Halloween World. Even the kids he runs into make fun of him. Try a little harder next time and maybe not with the Pirate accent.

6. Little Red Riding Hood

Who Wore It: BuffyEpisode: "Fear, Itself" (Season 4, Episode 4)The best part about this costume is that Buffy used Riding Hood's basket to carry weapons in it. Frankly, that's not a bad idea for most women to adopt on Halloween where most guys are usually the worst.

1. Ghost

Who Wore It: WillowEpisode: "Halloween" (Season 2, Episode 6)A white sheet with holes poked in it wasn't enough (because, you know, the KKK) for Willow. Writing "BOO!" across the sheet in big, bold letters gives it that extra cute touch.
